Corman to deliver “Next Generation” TV keynote

Phil Corman, director of Microsoft TV worldwide partner development will deliver the keynote address for the “Next Generation Television — The Content Provider's Opportunity" Super Session April 24 at NAB2006.

The Next Generation Super Session will explore new content-based business and revenue models as IPTV-based entertainment and information services become increasingly available. Speakers will outline IPTV content delivery options, how they offer content owners new ways to reach consumers and the business development opportunities that they provide for content distributors.

At Microsoft, Corman works with partners providing solutions for encoding, server, storage and billing/operations support systems, consumer electronics and original equipment manufacturers, silicon suppliers, independent software and TV application providers and systems integrators. Corman also is developing IPTV content partner relationships with studios, broadcasters, post-production houses, content and asset management companies.

Prior to joining Microsoft in March 2001, Corman was general manager of interactive digital systems at Mitsubishi Electronics America.
