VideoTap Digital to unveil Interactive Smart Video platform at Mobile World Congress, Barcelona

VideoTap Digital, the media technology company promoted by media veteran Dilip Venkatraman, former CEO of CNN-IBN and IBN7, and Savvy Dilip, former Group CMO of ITV Network, is all set to showcase VideoTap, the next generation video platform at 4YFN - Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. VideoTap is a highly innovative, cloud-based Interactive Smart Video platform, powered by proprietary patent pending technology that is set to transform the way video content is delivered, viewed, and monetized.

Consumers want video on demand, but many times they want to watch only a specific segment within a video, and not the full video. They also want to watch many specific segments one after the other, continuously, for a personalized experience. They do not want to waste time searching from many videos. Addressing this gap, VideoTap offers consumers personalized real-time video compilations, interactivity on videos, and direct-to-scene watching.

Commenting on this, Dilip Venkatraman, Founder and CEO of VideoTap, said, “VideoTap is an original concept and is fundamentally differentiated from existing offerings in the world. Our highly motivated and innovative in-house technology team has built this platform from scratch. We are very excited about showcasing VideoTap at a global platform.”

Savvy Dilip, Co-Founder and COO of VideoTap, added, “Consumers want more control over their viewing experience, and we have built an entire ecosystem to deliver an unparalleled user experience. We are excited about working with video publishers, especially broadcasters and production houses, to unlock the value of their content libraries.”

Venkatraman’s last assignment was as the Group COO of ITV Network, which operates news channels India News, NewsX, and Sunday Guardian. Prior to that, he worked at Network18 as the CEO of CNN-IBN and IBN7. He has over 23 years of corporate experience, including three years in USA. Prior to joining TV18, he held key positions at the India Today Group and the Zee Network. He was the Head of Brand Management at Zee News and the President of Marketing for Dish TV. Venkatraman is an accomplished professional, with many industry benchmark setting initiatives to his credit. In 2011, he won the prestigious ‘News CEO of the Year Award’ at the ‘Exchange4media News Broadcast Awards’. He is a Graduate in Public Administration, and has completed his management program from IIM Bangalore, and the Advanced Management Program from Harvard Business School, Boston.

Savvy Dilip, until recently, was the Group CMO of the ITV Network (India News, NewsX and Sunday Guardian), where she developed and launched the network identity. Prior to that, she worked at Network18 as the VP - Marketing for CNN-IBN and IBN7. She has vast experience in product management, brand management, and brand building across media including digital media, strategic alliances, programming planning, events and experiential marketing, sales enablement, and public relations.
