Josh Stutt, Director of Marketing, Newvue, a leading provider of channel development for content
owners looking to distribute their creations on various IPTV/OTT platforms and web enabled devices. He spends most of his day refilling his coffee and playing with various media streaming toys. His greatest career achievement was being able to set up a PS3 in the conference room as a justifiable workday activity. Mr. Stutt is a proud proponent of IPTV and OTT services delivering the future of video entertainment consumption. It is his belief that consumers need to be able to watch what they want, when they want, on whatever screen they want, and the content owners, service providers, and device makers that provide them this ability will be the ones that succeed in the new ecosystem. He joined the Newvue team because he recognized their ability to marry high quality content discovery and delivery with multiple monetization methods and the technological know-how to build for almost any IPTV/OTT platform on the planet. When not touting the abilities of Newvue to anyone within a virtual earshot Mr. Stutt can commonly be found obsessing over his fantasy football team, “forgetting” his phone when he goes on vacation, or listening to his new favorite beat maker.
