About

The first thing that you’ll notice is that, with a simple search, you have access to the full spectrum of our industry: From A (as in Advertising) to Z (as in TV Poland executive Zak).

To us at VideoAge, television is more than an industry; it is a universe of stars (vice-presidents) superstars (CEOs) and quasars (chairmen) from the world of politics, regulations, sociology, psychology, finances, production, distribution, ratings, broadcasting, cablecasting, satellite, piracy, new technology, etc., including the good ’ole days.

VideoAge makes complex new technological topics digestible to non-geeks and rich technophobes.
