SeaChange CEO Jay Samit to Keynote BroadbandTVcon Next Week

ACTON, Mass., Feb. 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jay Samit, CEO of multiscreen innovator SeaChange International, Inc. (Nasdaq:SEAC), will deliver the day-two keynote for BroadbandTVcon 2015 (Los Angeles, March 3-4), the annual conference gathering all segments of the television, entertainment and technology ecosystems to establish a course for success in broadband TV. SeaChange will also demonstrate its OTT and social TV platforms, including the new Timeline Showcase social content visualization tool.

Mr. Samit's keynote, Countdown to OTT Lift-off: Define Your Mission and Model for TV's Next Frontier, commences at 9:05 a.m. PT on Wednesday, March 4. This session will help content owners and video service providers to identify high-impact and flexible OTT video models to stay on pace with consumers' evolving tastes and habits.

Samit commented, "Service providers, programmers, studios and other participants should plan to preserve OTT's chief advantage in responsiveness as the category continues to ascend in the hearts and minds of consumers. They can build subscription, transactional or free services that suit their consumers today, yet remain poised for the inevitable shift in viewing preferences and benefit from dynamic audience influences such as social media and mobile devices."

Greg Fawson, X Media Research President and BroadbandTVcon organizer stated, "We're thrilled to have Jay Samit keynoting this year's event, given both his vision for the industry and SeaChange's record for moving video forward to new platforms.
