    In this webinar, we will hear from those responsible for sourcing, implementing, managing and maintaining addressable ad platforms to understand the key aspects of operating a successful addressable ad service.

    In assessing the technology considerations, the discussion will examine the different approaches for linear, whether broadcast or streamed IP and on-demand via set-top boxes and channel apps and differing levels of available data.

    As well as exploring how best to manage customer data such as demographic information, browsing and purchase history to provide segmentation and the level of granularity required by advertisers it will also consider the importance of compliance with data regulations.

    IBC |
    Join IBC365 on Wednesday 17 February 2pm GMT to get the low down on the key elements of a successful CDN strategy.

    Investment in content distribution workflows is set to top the agenda for many media organisations in 2021, as broadcasters accelerate their pivots to digital and content owners, rights holders and brands embrace the direct-to-consumer model. Combined with a surge in online viewing, it is not surprising that according to some estimates the overall global spend on CDNs is expected to reach $7bn by 2023, as media firms look to deliver a seamless and engaging viewer experience.

    This webinar will consider some of the key elements of a successful CDN strategy and the issues that need to be taken into account when selecting partners. It will also explore factors such as the ability to scale, the importance of a low latency solution – particularly for live sport and interactive content - the role of a CDN in aiding anti-piracy efforts and the implications of technology such as AI on the development of services and the impact of 5G adoption on content delivery infrastructure.

  • How Canal+ Groupe and NAGRA Are Successfully Fighting Piracy Recorded: Dec 9 2020 60 mins
    IBC | Canal+ Groupe | NAGRA
    Join IBC365, Canal+ Groupe and NAGRA on Wednesday 9 December 1pm GMT to find out how the combined forces of NAGRA and Canal+ Groupe defined and executed a clear security strategy that has delivered impressive results – including the recent take-down of a pirate operation in Switzerland.
    In today’s hyper-connected world, consumer’s insatiable appetite for content means illicit means are sought and made available by an increasingly savvy group of content and service pirates.

    Streaming piracy touches all aspects of today’s content value chain and if you’re a major TV provider such as Canal+ Groupe that’s a lot of surface area across both your traditional pay-TV and OTT services.

    Mitigating against the risk of piracy is therefore key and requires a comprehensive security strategy that collectively delivers a picture of risk across the enterprise and includes everything from identifying credential sharing through to commercial piracy in the form of convincing but illicit services being offered to often unsuspecting paying subscribers.

    How to create and execute on such a strategy may seem a daunting prospect but working with NAGRA, Canal+ Groupe has combined a number of security technologies including conditional access, watermarking, cyber and anti-piracy services to strengthen their defenses. At an industry level, they have also actively participated in a number of anti-piracy coalitions such as ACE to strengthen their fight against those determined to steal from their business.

    If you’re a video service provider actively considering how you can play your part against content and service piracy, this webinar is for you!

    IBC365 | Tata Communications | MotoGP | Omdia
    Live production operations are no longer the complex on-site circus they once were. Most live events – including sports, music concerts and entertainment events have now adopted leaner methods provided by remote production technology.

    In the post-Covid world, it has become even more important to embrace this technology. Distributed workforces have added another layer of cloud and security considerations over low-latency connectivity.

    These aspects combine to create the next-gen live production process and make it remote, virtualised and distributed.

  • Addressable ads: Delivering a personalised viewing experience Recorded: Sep 30 2020 63 mins
    IBC365 | LTN Global | Mediakind | Beachfront
    Addressable ads promise greater engagement with viewers and therefore healthier return for advertisers, but what are the barriers to adoption?

    Ad spending has been severely reduced as a result of coronavirus, indeed global ad spend is set to fall by almost $50 billion – or 8.1% - this year as businesses in all sectors cancel or postpone media buys due to coronavirus, according to the World Advertising Research Center (WARC). But it is also worth noting that eMarketer has estimated that connected ad spending in the US alone could total $10.81 billion by 2021, with 59% of that being traded programmatically.

    As interest in Sky’s AdSmart continues to grow and US networks and members of Project Oar begin trials of the consortium’s technology, could addressable provide the media industry with a shot in the arm to deflated spending resulting from coronavirus?

    With viewers becoming increasingly used to personalised and relevant content, this webinar will consider the benefits for brands and broadcasters, which could include a reduction in channel switching and greater engagement.

    It will also assess the different methods of management, delivery and measurement of addressable ads, looking at the approaches for serving ads to linear and on-demand services.
    This webinar will also consider the available technology, for example, the importance of media processing at the edge and the role of the cloud. It will also examine the barriers to adoption and how they might be overcome.

    Finally, the importance of technical standards for TV programmers and platforms to deliver targeted advertising in linear and on-demand formats on smart TVs will be considered.

    Join IBC365 on Wednesday 30 September at 2pm BST to find out how and why broadcasters are adopting addressable advertising.

  • Plug and play or plug and pray? Making microservices work Recorded: Jun 24 2020 66 mins
    IBC365 | MediAnswers | Global Eagle | Financial Times | American Public Television
    Building technology platforms from a set of off-the-shelf components, like Lego bricks, is being widely adopted for new media solutions including OTT services and content supply chains.

    Using these individual services, often cloud based, can help create more powerful solutions more quickly - embracing the latest AI and ML capabilities, and making it easier to swap out individual components like transcoders in future. This approach also paves the way for platforms that make dynamic choices of individual cloud-based services based on demand and cost on a pay-as-you-go basis.

    But does the reality live up to the promise? Explore how microservices are being adopted by broadcast and media companies, and find out:
    •How microservices can transform development of media content solutions
    •When to adopt a microservices-based approach
    •Why integration and interoperability of media microservices isn't always straightforward
    •Can microservices be a cost effective approach to building and operating media platforms
