In advance of home entertainment industry veteran David Bishop’s keynote address May 4 at The OTT.X Leadership Development Foundation 2021 Summit, Media Play News reached out to Bishop for a Q&A, the first in a series of conversations we intend on having with home industry leaders past, present – and future.
Bishop is the former president of two major-studio home entertainment divisions, MGM Home Video and then Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. While running Sony from 2006 to 2014, Bishop was one of the leaders in the launch and marketing of both Blu-ray Disc and digital distribution platforms, contributing to over $20 billion in gross revenue for the studio. For 10 years before that, as president and chief operating officer of MGM Home Entertainment, Bishop played a key role in the launch of DVD, which remains the single most successful consumer electronics product debut in history. He was known as the “King of Catalog” for successfully mining the studio’s rich vault for new DVD special editions.
