As always, CES in Las Vegas kicked off the new year in style and we’ve pulled out four meta-trends, including virtual reality streaming, that we think are relevant to our industry.
Virtual Reality is in high demand — after all, who wouldn’t want to experience a sports event, video games and more, in the most realistic manner possible. But how can operators ensure that they are delivering both a high quality and secure immersive experience?
Our IBC2016 Panel Discussion examined the key issues regarding the introduction of Big Data in the broadcast industry and the opportunities for monetisation it represents.
A new report on SVOD in the APAC region highlights the fact that growth is accelerating and that local operators have the potential to dominate the market
Sport is driving VR and, from our initial world’s first presentation of a live VR sporting event earlier this year to the 85 hours of VR content transmitted from Rio 2016, progress in live streaming 360-degree video content has been astonishingly rapid.
As we approach Sportel 2016, all the pointers are that the sales of VR hardware in 2016 have been over and above the predictions made for the year.
Our EVP Marketing and Sales, Chem Assayag, was interviewed by the IABM team at IBC about what we were up to at the show and you can watch the video here.
A new report from Juniper Research suggests that SVOD revenues are about to surge worldwide, while NBC the much-reported low viewing figures for NBC’s coverage of the Olympic Games was offset by some stellar online ones. Meanwhile, at IBC, the industry was facing up to what can be characterised as generational change.
Our IBC panel, ‘Monetising operators’ data: Does big data mean big rewards?’ moderated by Guy Bisson, Research Director at Ampere Analysis, will be the place to be at IBC to begin to unravel the answers from an increasingly complex picture.
IBC is getting bigger every year, with somewhere in the region of 55,000 visitors from all over the world descending on the Amsterdam RAI to see 1600+ exhibitors and listen to the 300 speakers in the conference. After you have been to see us on Stand 1.A51, here are some of the highlights of the rest of the show.
