Early Adopted Technology Sessions

This session looks at technologies that are already in early use but are yet at the beginning of their journey. Where will they take us next?

At the front end of the BaM Content Chain® the battle to create and produce compelling content is of crucial importance, driven by constant viewer churn. Reducing costs is also a driver. Technology is all about innovation which generates more creativity - especially when powered by tools for better collaboration. The move towards remote production, and collaboratively produced shows in multiple locations using talent and resources scattered around the globe, require new workflows and toolsets. Those early adopted during the pandemic have only given us a glimpse into the future possibilities of newer technologies – this session looks to the next stage.

Bleeding Edge Technology Sessions

This session dives deep into the bleeding technologies that will define our industry’s future.

As the move towards working from anywhere – at any time - grows, distributed infrastructure is a must. This in part means moving into cloud and hybrid environments. Initial lift-and-shift approach wasn’t really bleeding-edge as there was little change in workflows with only a slight (if any) increase media production throughput and value. The approach now is moving towards stronger metadata, cloud-native applications, new workflow concepts and robust, diverse and secure IT infrastructures.

AI/ML/Analytics is intensifying the practical use of metadata, reducing storage costs by using deduplication, using AI for content repurposing, and new targeted advertising approaches taking advantage of the universe of available devices and displays. Blockchain is definitely on the bleeding edge side too, with new notions for finding deep-fakes and using NFTs to enhance viewer interactivity. All are up for discussion in this session.

Fireside chat with Ed Abis of Dizplai
In this session IABM’s Head of Knowledge, Lorenzo Zanni, chats to Dizplai’s Managing Director, Ed Abis, to discuss how global content creators are adopting tried-and-tested engagement strategies and using tools to create interactive viewing experiences.

Market-first: Embedding video origin timestamps in ultra-low latency live streams using KLV
Videon’s video Edge computing platform leveraged KLV metadata to deliver ultra-low latency live video streams enhanced with accurate video origin timestamps for the first time.

KLV, a SMPTE data encoding standard also used by the military to embed data in video feeds, combines metadata with geospatial visualization, offering unparalleled insight. For the first time in the live video market, Stats Perform, a leading provider of sports intelligence data, can leverage the power of KLV metadata. Embedded in live video streams, KLV-enabled Network Time Protocol (NTP) clock time creates new opportunities for the broadcasting and sports betting industries.

The integration of KLV data means that critical metadata like origin time, GPS location of players in the stadium, the speed of ball, etc., become available to analyze, enabling Stats Perform to dramatically improve the volume and accuracy of its sports data analytics. This brings an unparalleled level of insight to sports wagering and new revenue streams to the company.
