  • Building tomorrow's OTT platforms Jul 25 2019 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    IBC365 | Akamai | More speakers announced soon...
    Broadcasters and platform owners are investing millions in building and upgrading OTT platforms to ensure they can compete successfully with a growing array of digital competitors and deliver compelling user experiences.

    What’s not yet clear is the best approach. Buy off the shelf, build in house, or blend the two? Which parts of the platform need most focus to ensure differentiation and commercial success, and which components are commoditised?

    This webinar uncovers the critical success factors for building a successful OTT service, including:
    - Delivering content at scale as more viewing and live events move to OTT
    - Ensuring a class-leading user experience and quality
    - Using analytics to maximise revenue and engagement
    - Ensuring cost efficiency in the OTT workflow
    - Securing platforms and content against piracy and malicious attacks

    Commissioners are demanding more content in 4K/UHD for digital platforms and to future-proof their libraries, impacting every step of the creative process and the craft skills needed.

  • Talking to the TV: Transforming the viewing experience with voice control Recorded: May 16 2019 62 mins
    IBC365 | TiVo | Liberty Global | Tele2
    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.

    Speakers:
    Ashley Grossman, Senior manager, Personalisation & Discovery, Liberty Global
    Morvarid Kashanipour, Lead product creative, Tele2
    Patrick Byrden, Senior director customer solutions, TiVo
  • Transforming creative workflows: Making great content in the cloud Recorded: Apr 25 2019 60 mins
    IBC365 | Jellyfish Pictures | LCTV | TechXMedia
    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
  • Blockchain: A framework for the secure exchange of digital assets Recorded: Apr 2 2019 62 mins
    IBC365 | IBM Aspera
    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
  • Remote production: Lead the next in live production Recorded: Mar 13 2019 59 mins
    IBC365 | Tata Communications | Dorna Sports
    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.

    Speakers:
    Dhaval Ponda, global sales head Media Services, Tata Communications
    Sergi Sendra, senior director Media Production, Dorna Sports

    IBC365 | IRT Germany | BT Sport
    Join this webinar on Thursday 21 February to learn how 5G will transform the way content is created, produced and distributed.

    More than just a faster mobile data connection, 5G reinvents connectivity.

    - Enriching production and storytelling
    - Revitalising newsgathering and live event coverage
    - Blending broadcast and live data for mobile audiences in the European 5G-Xcast project

    - Dr Jordi Gimenez, 5G research engineer & project manager, IRT Germany
    - Matt Stagg, Director of mobile strategy, BT Sport
    - Marios Nicolaou, 5G and digital transformation senior strategy advisor

  • Content convergence: Why telcos need content and content providers need telcos Recorded: Nov 15 2018 63 mins
    IBC365 | Huawei | Rights Stuff | O2 | Ampere
    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

  • Winning the Battle for OTT Audiences Recorded: Jun 28 2018 71 mins
    IBC365 | Limelight Networks | Rede Telecine | DAZN | OTT Content Consulting
    Great content alone is not enough to sustain a successful on-demand internet-delivered OTT service.

    Whether it's broadcaster catch-up, special-interest content or producers like HBO and Disney going direct, the pressure is on for platforms trying to compete with the big beasts Netflix and Amazon. With the announcement of Salto as a joint venture of broadcasters in France, and UK channels investing in updating Freeview Play, OTT is centre-stage once again.

    Audiences have huge expectations of user experience, video image and quality-of-service - regardless of the network or device they are using. Delivering and managing a consistently-high quality of experience is crucial for media companies wanting to deliver a popular, engaging and profitable OTT service - whatever the content and business model.

    Leading OTT operators and their technology providers discuss how they have designed-in quality and user experience all the way through to consumers' devices, showing how this directly drives audience growth.

    They will reveal the risk factors that can destroy audience engagement, including poor streaming performance and data privacy and security fears.

    As OTT becomes inseparable from live broadcast, solutions for streaming time-sensitive, high-value live events and sports are assessed.

    Speakers:
    Guilherme Saraiva, CTO, Rede Telecine
    Steve Miller-Jones, Senior Director of Product Management, Limelight Networks
