Content production is one of the most labor intensive exercises in the media and entertainment (M&E) industry. As a result, it takes up a lion’s share of the budget too. And that is not just because of the number of people involved but inefficiencies run across production planning, time and resource management, use of technology and content logistics (storage, transfer, review). Since the outcome is what we call the IP that is monetizable, security also becomes paramount as the threat of piracy never subsides.
In this IABM TV video, we are joined by Chris Wood, CTO at Spicy Mango to hear more about the company and his role.

Cloud playout is not a new idea; it’s been discussed in our industry for at least a decade, including early attempts at creating and supplying solutions. But it’s only more recently that it has become a reality and it’s certainly an important part of the future. Globecast is leading the way.
One of the most important aspects of any training set up is that it provides relevant experience for students on industry standard equipment. For the broadcast industry that can be a problem. Not only is technology in the industry moving at a rapid pace, but the educational institutes that handle an increasing amount of training nowadays aren’t always as well-resourced as they wish to be.
When we talk about location production, our thoughts and processes are primarily driven by sport. This has always been the genre which has seen the most innovation: more cameras delivering more angles; more replays; more graphics; new formats like 4K and HDR UHD. Sports fans want to be continually engaged and informed: they want to understand the plays as well as appreciate them.
