Through MESA’s media, events, special interest groups and trade association management (2nd Screen Society, Interactive Television Alliance, Hollywood IT Society and CDSA) MESA facilitates ongoing discussions about collaboration and innovation in the entertainment industry along four key verticals: physical and digital supply chain, content security, information technology and 2nd screen technologies.
