Across the United States and around the world, the number of viewing options for both conventional television and cinema programming continues to expand and diversify.

Business and commercial updates: Contracts in the Cloud: are you GDPR compliant? This article originally appeared in the IABM Journal, issue 105 which is available to view online here Curated by IABM Finance Director Lucinda Meek Business and commercial updates Talking with members at various shows and events, it became clear to me that they would find it useful if IABM could provide briefings on topical, general business operational concerns alongside the wide range of broadcast and media industry- specific information we already offer members. That’s why we’ve introduced the new Business and Commercial Updates section to the Journal and in this edition, we are looking at cyber liability insurance, the potential effects of the new data protection regulations on contracts in the cloud, and an integrated approach to marketing. I would welcome suggestions from members for future topics, and will myself continue to search out relevant, authoritative analysis and guidance on topical business issues.

- Cloud Use Cases in Media

Are we truly heading towards a dematerialized industry, and if so, what’s holding us back today?
No this is not a piece about railways, but it does raise the question of which tracks we are on and where they will lead. So much talk about the transition to IP and IT infrastructures but like so many others in this industry, I come from a legacy of standalone point products and interoperability through well-defined hardware interfaces. This is not a good place to start because it constrains our thinking about future infrastructures. We are at the beginning of a journey that is likely to lead to far more radical changes than many envisage.
This report provides key findings from a survey of broadcast technology end-users that was conducted immediately prior to the 2017 NAB trade show.
