Live content, in particular sport, is an essential element of traditional broadcasters’ linear schedules and an increasingly attractive way for streamers to build audiences. With viewers becoming accustomed to increasingly sophisticated ways of relaying the action, IBC365 will consider some of the ways in which large-scale live events are presented to audiences.
In this webinar, IBC365 will speak to broadcasters, production teams and their suppliers about the latest technology and techniques they are using to create richer and ultimately more immersive viewing experiences.
The webinar will consider the importance and impact of access to increasing amounts of data, the use of cloud-based tools to handle and turn that data into insights, the role of GFX to support storytelling and what part tools such as augmented reality play in studio presentation.
Valuable content rights drive direct-to-consumer platforms making it more essential than ever to protect content from illegal use and avoid revenue loss.
From password sharing to illegal streaming devices to state-sponsored piracy, content owners face a continual technology and business challenge to protect their content on its journey to reach legitimate consumers, while ensuring that the user experience for paying customers is not degraded.
Content security experts share their strategies for protecting their content, including:
•Effective encryption and DRM models
•Role of watermarking and fingerprinting
•Identifying and stopping sources of illegal streaming

Join IBC365 on demand to explore the value of voice control for content.
Consumers have fallen in love with talking to their gadgets. Smart speakers and voice-controlled AI assistants have seen rapid adoption in homes, the UK being the biggest adopter with voice assistant devices now used in more than a quarter of all households.
With a shift away from the on-screen EPG and clunky remote controls to a world where any content is a voice command away, who owns the voice interface with the consumer and the vast amount of valuable data it creates? Does this put more power in the hands of the Silicon Valley tech giants as their voice assistants and AI algorithms become a new gatekeeper? And how should content owners respond?
This webinar explores the importance of delivering compelling user experiences (UX), the value of voice control for content, and finds the best strategies for broadcasters and platform operators to develop voice interfaces and maintain control of the experience.

Join IBC365 on Thursday 25 April at 4pm BST to explore why creators are turning to cloud to transform the way they make great content and how virtualised workflows are unlocking the ability to work in new ways: faster, more collaborative, more efficient and more creative.
This webinar goes inside some of the world's leading content creators, production and post-production operations to hear how they are embracing cloud technology to transform the creative processes used to make, produce and deliver video.
We'll get hands-on with practical lessons on how cloud is enabling more collaboration, access to more talent, round-the-clock working, more content security, and slicker workflows. There's also a dose of reality, as we understand the human and technology challenges and the potential pitfalls of virtualising creative workflows.
Case studies focus on using cloud for:
•Streamlining content creation in the field
•Transforming production and post-production processes
•Efficient content delivery and backhaul
Content professionals are migrating production, ingest, storage, and delivery workflows to hybrid and multicloud environments; as these footprints grow, the workloads become increasingly distributed. In this new paradigm, digital assets will often traverse multiple hosted IT solutions, raising new questions about trust and security that each industry must address.
In this webinar, learn how blockchain can integrate with high-speed data transfer and other cloud-based services to build a shared network for the secure tracking of the digital asset lifecycle. Key use cases for discussion include:
- Definition of trusted business networks
- Unique encryption and secure key exchange
- Forensic asset tracking
- Execution of commercial and legal terms
Join IBC365 on Wednesday 13 March at 4pm GMT to explore how remote production is changing the way sports broadcasters think and act.
The demand for live content is growing at an exponential rate. However, shipping a whole production team and their equipment to each location means hosting live events is challenging
For broadcasters, this means increasing cost pressures, human resource challenges and managing complex logistics. In such a scenario, remote production is proving to be a real solution with the potential to transform live production.
Speakers from MotoGP rights holder Dorna Sports will share their viewpoints on the topic from a broadcaster standpoint and will talk about their experience in deploying remote production and the experience and benefits derived.
The cost savings offered by remote production workflows can be used to deliver more content from the venue. Instead of sending large technical crews on site for OB production, a broadcaster can send more journalists and editorial staff to capture more and better content.
With the world’s largest and most advanced fibre network that is strong and reliable, Tata Communications is best placed to deliver feeds with extremely low latency, super large capacity, stable and consistent to match broadcaster's requirements of delivering better quality feeds, with faster turnaround at lower cost, offering the potential for higher productivity for live production, in terms of both OPEX and CAPEX.

The boundaries between broadcasters, pay TV platforms, OTT operators and telecoms providers are blurring.
Competitors are becoming partners as content owners recognise the role of telcos to deliver their services to a bigger audience and drive new revenues, while telecom operators are creating compelling consumer experiences built around video.
Convergence is now all about putting the consumer at the centre of a connected media and entertainment experience where the distinction between live broadcast and on-demand services disappears.
It's an exciting time for every player in the content and connectivity business, and in this ground-breaking webinar we'll map out the future of convergence and hear:
- Why high-quality video services are vital for telecom operators wanting to engage consumers and grow their revenues through "experience monetisation"
- When is the right time for operators to license their own content or offer their own VOD platform
- How becoming a super-aggregator of OTT services and TV channels can create a compelling offer without costing a cent in content rights
- Why content providers, broadcasters and SVOD platform owners should partner with telcos to reach new audiences in new markets
