DARMSTADT, Germany -- June 1, 2010 -- iPharro Media today announced that CEO Joshua Cohen will join digital media industry experts at the Copyright and Technology 2010 Conference (C&T 2010) for a panel discussion titled "Content Identification Technologies: Moving From Antipiracy to Monetization." The June 17 session, scheduled for 2:45 p.m. at the Hotel Roger Smith in New York City, will address technological means of identifying digital content, not only to prevent piracy, but also to enable content producers and owners to monetize content more effectively and in more ways.
"The C&T 2010 panel will discuss how current content identification technology is enabling a shift from reactive antipiracy efforts to proactive monetization strategies," said Cohen. "Tracking, identifying, and controlling media as it passes through the various stages of its lifecycle across multiple platforms is a daunting task. The digitization of massive archives, global collaboration, and a coincident explosion in the nature and number of distribution platforms adds complexity to these processes. I look forward to discussing how content owners can apply technologies such as adaptive video fingerprinting to take control of and monetize their growing volumes of digital content."
As iPharro Media CEO, Cohen has led development of solutions that can be deployed and seamlessly integrated into any preexisting workflow or serve as the engine behind any new content identification-based application. Prior to joining iPharro, Cohen spent a decade in finance, business, media development, and strategy. In this time he worked for some of the most prestigious companies in the finance and media sectors, namely Merrill Lynch, the Random House division of Bertelsmann Media Group, and MTV Germany. He holds a master's degree in business administration from New York University and a bachelor's degree in molecular biology from Princeton University. Cohen also studied at the University of Cologne in Germany as part of his business degree.
