VOD Professional was founded by me, Kauser Kanji, in 2011. Back then, I’d already been working in online video for six years – for Virgin Media, NBCU, ITN and Trinity Mirror – and I started blogging with the aim of demystifying the early jargon and technologies in our industry. I also wanted to understand how we, as VOD service-providers, could learn from each other and how vendor solutions could help us achieve our business goals.
Now, in 2020, we do four main things here at VOD Pro:
- We write about the future of TV on this website
- We use our contacts book to conduct qualitative and quantitative research and produce proprietary reports and whitepapers for broadcasters, film studios, operators, service-providers and technology vendors
- We run conferences and events which focus on commercial, operational, product and strategic challenges and opportunities
- And we provide related consultancy services to clients like Netflix, the BBC, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Akamai, TiVo and a range of national and international broadcasters all over the world
Whether you want to share a news story, brief us on a project, speak at our next event or just feel like having a geek out about online video, get in touch!
