This year’s Next | Video will excite returning attendees as well as new attendees with streaming and enterprise interests.
“The renaming of the event reflects our intention to keep pace with — and even anticipate — the rapid changes we’re witnessing in technology,” says Carmel King, NewBay Media Executive VP. “Now more than ever, it is crucial that we focus on bringing the latest, greatest training, content, and technology to our show.”

Conference tracks at Next | Video include Next | Production, Next | Postproduction, Next | Streaming Tech, Next | Distribution, and Next | Enterprise Media.
The program ranges from assessing the latest technology solutions and trends in broadcast, video production, postproduction, and streaming media, to exploring current outlets and business strategies for the media and entertainment community.

Broadening the Experience
“We recognized that our attendees wanted a more immersive experience at the event,” adds King. “Integrating this new conference expands the educational offerings and networking, and broadens the scope to attract a larger and more diverse audience of video/media professionals. Additionally, we will continue to work with other content partners to produce the most up-to-date and relevant material for our audience.”
The expo will feature the latest products and services for the video/broadcast community, complementing the program content and allowing attendees to both learn about and receive hands-on experience with new technology.
