Fred Fourcher, chief executive officer of Bitcentral, explains the importance of the show and why he believes the company’s asset management, playout and collaboration products represent a unique opportunity to serve a diverse group of content stakeholders in attendance. “Bitcentral has been making the broadcast industry more efficient for over 16 years,” Fourcher said. “While we have a deep heritage and competence in broadcasting, we’ve always pushed the envelope as a software tech company.

We’re happy to be growing and I’m delighted to be contributing to the panel at News Technology Summit, discussing important considerations for our customers as they transition in a digital ecosystem”.
