This annual event covering three days at the EBU headquarters in Geneva brings together 150 professionals from the public broadcast sector and increasingly the private sector as well. In addition to those attending in person, the EBU streams the event live with high production values, interactivity and excellent video and sound quality. In past years there was more of a deep dive in to the various video formats and specifications in development, SMPTE 2110 and compression algorithm for example. This year similar technology was included but an increased emphasis was placed on operational aspects and developments beyond signal formats. Separate tutorials were provided for more in-depth explanations. Overall there is a sense that traditional broadcasters are waking up to the realities of modern television which is increasingly on-line and social media driven. This report provides a brief summary of each session. On request more information can be provided on specific presentations, most have been made available directly after the event.
The production world is moving to IP. This session reviews the world of IP transport streams, Cloud based solutions, Cyber security, Advanced Analytics and many more topics that will evolve in the coming years.
Discussion on the latest trends and developments in emerging technologies
