The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media


Matt Westrup

VP of Operations EMEA

A+E Networks

Matt started his career in production as a lighting camera operator and later a director before building the operations department at Travel Channel International. There he cut his teeth on moving from SD tape to HD files, IP workflows and edge playout. It has given him the rare chance to follow the story of Broadcast from the frame of the lens right through to MAM, playout, TX, VOD and ultimately the viewer. As technology shortens that distance between camera and viewer Matt has always kept the  focus on caring for content. As VP of Operations EMEA for A+E he manages History, C+I, Blaze, H2 and Lifetime brands across the region.
