Monday 17 June, 2pm - 5pm

Cassia 3211 & 3212, Level 3, Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands

Our Executive Summit series bring together the most influential and visionary thought leaders from broadcast and media companies and the world’s best technology suppliers to collaborate and discuss key trends, opportunities and disruptors in an open, non-commercial forum.

New Markets – New Business Opportunities

Is broadcast dead? Certainly not! However, as networking everywhere has changed the landscape of A/V, other verticals are increasingly relying on quality video as a key element of their business. Tapping into different types of consumption, new products, customers or occasions creates a great opportunity for vibrant, long-term growth. Addressing these markets generates additional sources of revenue, bolsters your company’s presence and keeps your competitors on the defensive.

This IABM Executive Summit examines the dynamics of various markets such as events, eSports, education, corporate, board rooms, House of Worship and higher end social media, and looks at how to grow your business via these new business opportunities.

Customer Experience + IOT = Pay-TV Operator Success

UHD / HDR in the ASAEN region and what opportunities that will give broadcasters / Media operations

Dennis Breckenridge, CEO, Elevate Broadcast

Viewers are seeking a broadcast experience which more closely emulates the real world. Broadcast Manufactures have improved picture quality changing analogue to digital. We also have seen increased resolutions however there is still be a missing element. The missing element, realistic colour and contrast which better emulates the human eye. Broadcast technology and displays have limited colour and contrast ranges based on transmission technologies which have gone largely unchanged since the 1950’s.

Today however this has changed and there is opportunity to harness High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Wide Colour Gamut (WCG) on existing SDR transmission and HDR transmissions. Utilizing SL-HDR1 incorporating both static and dynamic metadata it is possible in both UHD and HD to deliver a single SDR signal and view on SDR as well as reconstruct full HDR for HDR devices. The single signal allows particularly Asian Broadcasters in HD to deliver the richest colours and highest contrast video to their viewers without increasing transmission costs. This efficient delivery enables broadcasters to deploy HDR today.
