The Value in the Vault: New Technologies to Extract Value From Content Archives
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. Program runs 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
The explosion of content on the Internet has many media companies racing to experiment with new forms of media and grappling with ever more complex modes of distribution across myriad devices. But a lingering question for many media companies is around how to apply technologies to digitize and exploit archival content. Whether video, photography, or text, many of New York’s biggest media companies are grappling with how to take advantage of what seems a huge opportunity.
This panel will feature presentations and perspectives on technology and business model challenges and opportunities around digitizing archival content. While Internet Week is about the future, this session will ponder how tomorrow's technologies can create value from yesterday's content.
Speakers will include:
- Jim Chou, CTO at Shutterstock
- Marc Frons, CIO at The New York Times
- Mona Jimenez, Associate Arts Professor; Associate Director, Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program at NYU Tisch
- Owen Rambow, Co-Chair, New Media Center, Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering at Columbia University
- Dirk Van Dall, VP, Multimedia Technology Development at Major League Baseball Advanced Media
