Erick Opeka, VP of Digital Distribution for New Video, will provide a comprehensive overview of the current and future digital distribution landscape. Topics covered will include current business models (ad-based, transactional, subscription & VOD), current distribution platforms (iTunes, gaming consoles, Hulu, Netflix, etc.), marketing & merchandising, and future trends. Erick will also lay out several key strategies for securing a digital distributor and maximizing revenue.
