Steve Christian, VP of Marketing, has a wealth of experience in the digital media and Internet technology space and is a frequent speaker on media technology and business trends at global industry events. At Verimatrix, he is responsible for product strategy, marketing programs and management of brand equity.

Conference Track (sponsored by Verimatrix)
"Boosting Revenue via Enhanced User Experience." Christian will discuss the opportunities created by combinations of traditional pay-TV and mobile TV services, in the Middle East and elsewhere. He will help identify successful transition strategies that address the multi-network operator's unique set of operational challenges. A key issue is the need to ensure that a service has revenue security mechanisms that extend seamlessly as they offer premium video content on mobile devices, and especially as they add new devices types and new ways of accessing media. He will present scenarios that underscore the importance of consistent usage rights across all access points while minimizing the back-office complexities arising from the transition from legacy to new security models.
