Search Turns Up Google Execs at NAB2007
March 29, 2007
Two of the executives behind the Google juggernaut will share some of their insights at NAB2007 Super Sessions, and attendees won't even have to sort through 8,375,631 links.
Eric Schmidt, chairman of the executive committee and CEO of Google, will headline the Super Session "Innovator Spotlight: View from the Top" on Monday, April 16 in Las Vegas. Schmidt will give attendees insights into Google's achievements and the company's future impact on radio, television, advertising and the public.
At Google, Schmidt focuses on building the corporate infrastructure needed to maintain the company's growth and works to ensure that quality remains high while product development cycle times are kept to a minimum. Schmidt also shares responsibility for the company's day-to-day operations with Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.
Schmidt came to Google from Novell, where he led the company's strategic planning, management and technology development as chairman and CEO. Prior to Novell, Schmidt was chief technology officer and CEO at Sun Microsystems.
David Eun, vice president of content partnerships at Google, will give the keynote speech at the Super Session, "The Revolutionizing Impact of Broadband Video" on Tuesday, April 17.
Eun will discuss how startups are capitalizing on inexpensive technologies that give consumers greater control of their video experiences. The session will also focus on how changes in content delivery are impacting both copyright laws and local broadcasters' territorial exclusivity agreements. The Super Session will provide a broad view of these changes, with a panel of experts sharing strategies for success, lessons learned and insights for the future.
At his current post, Eun directs the business development and operational execution of deals with Google's video, print, and local content partners. Eun previously worked at NBC, where he led the network's first cross-media initiatives involving television programming, the Internet and retail consumer products.
