Opening Keynote | Getting the Most Out of Your Content

What is the “media supply chain” and why is it important? In our opening keynote  with Janet Gardner. president of Perspective Media Group, TV Tech Editor in Chief Tom Butts will discuss how the changing media landscape is impacting how media companies create, manage and monetize their content. We’ll examine how media enterprises both large and small are leveraging the cloud, IP and AI and other production tools to optimize how media for today’s multichannel environment is created and look at examples of how companies are adapting to evolving industry demands.

Tech Talk | Revolutionizing Live Content Production: The Impact of HEVC Encoding and Software-Based Technology

In this presentation, we delve into the transformative potential of High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) encoding and software-based technology on the landscape of live content production for broadcasters. As traditional broadcasting methods evolve and digital platforms continue to dominate the media landscape, the need for more efficient, high-quality content delivery becomes paramount.

HEVC encoding, also known as H.265, represents a significant leap forward in video compression technology, offering substantial improvements in compression efficiency over its predecessors. By effectively reducing bandwidth requirements while maintaining superior visual quality, HEVC enables broadcasters to deliver higher resolution content over existing infrastructure.

Moreover, the integration of software-based and cloud-based solutions further enhances flexibility and scalability in live content production. Through the use of advanced algorithms and computational power, broadcasters can leverage software-defined approaches to optimize encoding processes, adapt to fluctuating network conditions, and seamlessly integrate emerging technologies like cloud-based workflows and artificial intelligence.

Join us as we examine the paradigm shift underway in the broadcasting industry and uncover how HEVC encoding and software-based technology are reshaping the way live content is produced, delivered, and consumed in the digital age.

The Future of Over the Air Broadcast

While NextGen TV, a.k.a. ATSC 3.0, is now widely deployed, concerns have been raised about its future with consumers and its prospects as a profitable enterprise. In addition, a new protocol, “5G Broadcast” is also being tested as an alternative or supplement to 3.0. This panel will focus on plans to create new revenues and profits from NextGen TV—including datacasting, broadcast internet, automotive entertainment and other Web 3.0 services—as well as 5G Broadcast and the new technologies that will be offered at The NAB Show that will make it easier to deploy, manage and profit from advanced broadcasts.

The Benefits of Creating More Sustainable Infrastructure  & Closing Remarks

With major media companies push to reduce carbon emissions and operate more sustainably, this panel will focus on both the challenges and opportunities of deploying more sustainable technologies. It will cover how many of the newest tech trends in remote production, artificial intelligence and cloud-based solutions can both improve operational efficiency and cut carbon emissions and delve into some of the best practices for more sustainable operations. Learn how to build operations that are both green and profitable.
