In the last decade alone, live video experience has made huge strides with the introduction of ultra-high definition (UHD) TV in 2012 and its subsequent progress to 8K.

Businesses in any vertical markets are based on tangibles. R&D, investment, cashflow, production workflows, company management, staff skills and efficiency are all identifiable commercial factors needing to be balanced for the business to be run efficiently.

While the impact of ML and AI have been discussed and debated for years, practical applications are fast accelerating across the media supply chain. The pace of innovation is moving quickly and with the cloud wars in full force, there are new services becoming available all the time that offer novel ways to automate tasks with ML and AI.

For media organizations, the implications of these solutions are vast, and we’ve already begun to see their power. With things moving so fast, though, it’s challenging to keep up and important to have the right architecture and structure in place to take advantage of these innovations.
