As a television viewer, the existing broadcast infrastructure might seem fine to you. But the satellite broadcast system imposes a limit on the broadcasters’ ability to customize the content in different regions. To overcome this limitation, several companies have come forward to put the cloud infrastructure to use to deliver customized content. This move lets broadcasters expand on a global scale without investing in satellite or local hardware.
TradeCast TV is one such cloud television startup. In a recent development, the Zwolle-based company has appointed Remko Peters as its Chief Commercial Operator (CCO). He will hold responsibility for the commercial strategy of the startup.
Regarding the appointment of Remko Peters, Yillmaz Schoen, founder and CEO of TradeCast TV says, “Remko’s impressive track record, international experience and extensive network make him the right person to raise to the next level Trad Cast worldwide. We are very pleased to welcome him to our team.”
Remko Peters, CCO TradeCast TV says, “My goal is to work with the very ambitious team of TradeCast this unique brand to roll out worldwide. Anyone, anywhere in the world, is easy with this technology to start their own, completely independent TV station. Only in this way the revenue is fairly distributed among content creators. So get publishers, brands and companies back in control of content, value and user data. Simultaneously advertisers know exactly who is watching what, when, on what device and how long. Finally fully measurable TV accessible to everyone!”
