As media companies continue to roll out digital offerings, the need for efficient and effective content supply chains has never been so high. Powered by IABM’s data-driven insights on the business of media technology, this presentation will focus on the changing dynamics of the sector and, particularly, the adoption of the cloud in the industry.
This presentation will delve into the most recent drivers of change in the global broadcast and media industry and how these are translating into a shift in demand for media technology. As media companies continue to roll out digital offerings, the need for efficient and effective content supply chains has never been so high. Stan will draw on IABM’s data-driven insights on the business of media technology to discuss the changing dynamics of the sector, from the deployment of cloud technology and remote production to the adoption of artificial intelligence and blockchain.
It’s needless to state that the global broadcast, media and service provider
industry is going through some pretty radical changes, and that its very
foundations are continuously shaken by new waves of disruption.
Suddenly, the traditional players that were living happily alongside one
another in a fairly well-defined and static broadcast value chain find
themselves face to face in one big new and entirely re-defined arena.
And as if that was not confusing enough, global internet behemoths are
also stepping into that very same arena.
And today, an intricate play is unfolding where courtship and competition
go hand in hand in an almost Shakespearian fashion.
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 IABM Buying Trends Report biannually tracks financial performance and trends in the media sector. The purpose of this report is to enable IABM member companies to track their customers’ performance and keep up with emerging trends in media technology demand.
Statistics and trends data repeatedly confirm that the Internet for many is the first choice for video consumption. Sure, there are variations among age groups and region, but the direction is clear. Many traditional broadcasters are in denial and risk doing too little, too late as the ultimate outcome approaches.

This is truly an impressive number but a few high spots like this cannot sustain an entire broadcast service if other forms of programming are slipping away – as indeed they are. So, what are the factors that we need to consider when attempting to see the way ahead? Here is the first dilemma: the viewers. Do they drive change, or do they follow change? There isn’t a clear answer to this and the truth may lie between the two. It could be argued that viewers follow what they like – whether it’s the program content or the way it...
