PEVE Confab Cancelled22 May, 2007 By: Billy Gil
The 2007 PEVE (European Video Perspectives) conference, Europe's annual leading video event, has been cancelled.
Long-time PEVE presidents Jean-Marie Beauloye and Jean-Paul Commin have stepped down, handing responsibility to media analyst firm Screen Digest. In previous years, Screen Digest has been responsible for compiling the program and speaker lineup.
The 15-year-old conference provides video industry executives a forum to meet and discuss key issues facing the home media industry. In the past, the event has taken place in the fourth quarter. However, Screen Digest is considering moving the event to earlier in the year, and has thus cancelled this year's conference to first seek industry feedback as to how it should run in 2008.
