Livestreamed June 14 -15, the virtual BroadcastPro Tech Summit is set to be the critical forum for understanding the technologies and trends transforming the industry’s commercial future.
The last two years have seen more changes, transitions and innovations in broadcast technology than the last two decades put together. The industry is undergoing a dramatic re-set, with the pandemic offering rich rewards to those first-past-the-post in understanding audience preferences at a time when Big Data is king.
Now, the Virtual BroadcastPro Tech Summit takes a snapshot of the industry and assesses how factors like cloud, IP, remote production and smart new conduits for content delivery are pushing the envelope ever-further. In this expert online setting, industry professionals will share insights into the challenges they face, explaining their touchstone strategies and aspirations in a chain of masterclass discussions.
An intensely practical agenda
Day One begins with a keynote presentation from Peter Riz, CTO of OSN, and Zahra Zayat, Senior VP – OTT Digital and Telco, on ‘The relaunch of the new OSN Streaming app’. This sets the tone of extremely revealing and practical discussions that clearly portray what works, what doesn’t, and the strategies that technology innovation can best leverage.
The first day then develops this theme with a powerful, not-to-be-missed presentation from Alison Pavitt, Director of Sales and Marketing and Miroslav Jeras, CTO, Pebble, on ‘Solving the challenges of connection management in an IP world’ – and then follows with a dynamic panel debate: ‘Cloud and its many facets for an Efficient Broadcast Setup’.
Moderated by Nicolas Hans, Partner, Middle East, Broadcast Solutions, the panel considers the ways Covid-19 has accelerated the move to cloud (and in what areas?), and how can we best leverage the cloud for operational efficiency and greater elasticity – while still ensuring it remains budget-friendly?
The ‘elephant in the room’
Day Two promises a highly animated discussion: ‘OTT – The Technical Journey to Enhancing the User experience’. The session, moderated by Suhail Ahmed, CEO, One Diversified, assesses the touchstone issues around data and tech – an important union as each will help the other enhance the user experience. It then reviews the quest for personalisation, and looks at current developments in content search, recommendation and discoverability.
The event closes with another debate titled: ‘Covid-19 – Accelerating the move to IP, remote production, and cloud solutions for MENA broadcasters’. It tackles a raft of keynote themes, including whether remote can be the new normal for broadcast, production and post; and, when we move to cloud services, what can actually be moved, and where are the real challenges of migration?
Rich in content, the Virtual BroadcastPro Tech Summit means that all industry professionals – from the comfort of their own home or office – can turn on, tune in and get the guidance they need to take well-informed action.
