We spoke to IABM Global Engaged Partner, Carlos Miranda Matzumoto, Chief Technology Officer, DISH Mexico, about the business and technology trends he foresees for 2020 and beyond, and how IABM members can help him stay ahead. In a market where not everyone can take a fast internet connection for granted (or even just a connection in many cases), the gallop towards OTT we are seeing in other territories has scarcely entered walking pace yet.

He has valuable insights for how technology vendors can support DISH in this, and how he wants to partner in the coming years.

This article originally appeared in the IABM Journal, issue 101 which is available to view online here Holger Noske Vice President Broadcast Solutions Arvato Systems S4M GmbH Set the scene for us – how and why did Arvato Systems enter the broadcast and media industry? Arvato Systems is a division of Arvato, which is in turn owned by Bertelsmann – the German media company that also owns brands such as Penguin Random House, BMG and RTL Group, the European broadcasting powerhouse. It is through RTL that our broadcast solutions came into being, creating a file-based, proxy video editing and management workflow for RTL in the late 90s.
