16 Sep 2017

This session gives insight into the strategic thinking and the lessons learned of several public broadcasters who have recently completed, or plan to build, new cutting-edge broadcast centres and large-scale infrastructure projects.

A common theme among these projects is the focus on IP technology in production, both for live and pre-produced content, and the use of cloud technologies. Speakers will also discuss new workflows and the organizational and people challenges that have to be overcome in order to build these media factories of the future.
