FKTG Session: The virtualisation of TV and media production and distribution

Map Pointer Icon E102
18 Sep 2017

Software replaces hardware. Operations migrate to the cloud. Media production, distribution and archiving change from local operation to virtual operation. When do these visions come in place or are they already a reality?

Several companies claim that initial solutions for this future are already in operation or at least available soon. IT, computer and software companies are stepping in more and more challenging traditional broadcast equipment manufacturers.

The FKTG discussion panel will highlight these issues and let manufacturers and operators present and discuss proposals and answers on the future of virtual TV and media content production and distribution.

Complimentary FKTG drinks reception will follow on from this session outside E102.
