One of the challenges broadcasters must face today is how to generate new revenue opportunities with increasing consumption of video from different devices and platforms, which have completely changed the demand for contents and viewers’ behaviour.
AI gives broadcasters access to more detailed descriptive metadata of what is happening scene-by-scene to manage their gigantic content libraries speeding up content search and editing process. This presentation explains how AI is the key not only to keep up with the new trends in video consumption, but also to change the market introducing disruptive services to keep users engaged.
Kristan Bullett (Co-Managing Director, Piksel) discusses how Piksel are managing efficiency with their Fuse Metadata Manager.

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 2018 Winter Olympics marked Discovery’s first of four Olympic Games with broadcasting rights for most of Europe, and they needed to build a complete solution, from the ground up, to deliver Olympic content to 50 territories across Europe in 21 languages.
They knew that one of their main challenges was going to be managing the tremendous volume of content coming in from Korea and out to all of their distribution channels. With 900 people from Discovery on the ground in PyeongChang and 1400 more across 10 sites in Europe, immediate access to content from anywhere in the world, with easy collaboration and content sharing was going to be critical. NEP worked with Discovery to build out their Mediabank cloud-based media asset management tool to create a custom solution for Discovery’s ingest, storage, logging, distribution, and collaboration needs.
