COPENHAGEN, Denmark, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Preview Networks CEO, Andy Chen has been recognized as a "Who's Who of Online Video in Europe" by joining the ranks of those who have been recognized as influential and innovative people in the online video space. Members are chosen not only for their personal successes, but for sharing their experiences and educating others in order to push the industry forward.
"This year's Dream Team is a cross-section of both established veterans and up-and-comers in the European online video space," says Streaming Media editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. "They represent not only 'traditional' elements of online video such as content delivery and streaming services, but also the associated creative, social, and monetisation pieces without which the industry cannot grow."
Andy started his career during the dotcom 90s in San Francisco and most recently was the Vice President for MTV Networks and Viacom Brand Solutions International, responsible for strategy and the creation of digital commercial ventures in Europe. Andy has also been involved in various early stage investments and advisory roles with technology start-ups, most notably Videoplaza, recent winner of the Telegraph's Start-up 100.
As CEO, Andy is planning the expansion of Preview Networks' market coverage and distribution platform to an "omni syndication scope" that includes websites, connected devices, and ecommerce.
"In our attention-based economy today, the power of a preview is exponentially more important than ever," says Andy. "What we chose to entertain ourselves with, in the next 30 seconds will determine whether we further engage with the content in the next 30 minutes or 3 hours. As brands create more video content they will become more like publishers and utilise technology to manage their distribution of brand assets; across not only digital content destinations but in transactional environments like ecommerce."
