Early March, researcher Jonas De Meulenaere (iMinds-SMIT, Vrije Universiteit Brussel) presented a paper on the selection of video content in the digital era on the "What is Television?" conference in Portland (OR), USA.

This paper focuses on how viewers decide what to watch in a context of almost infinite availability of video content and investigates to what extent viewers apply an active search process towards video content. Relevant factors in this process are the role of gatekeepers (peers, but also broadcasters and professional recommendation initiatives) and the specific social context in which the video content is consumed.
