3.00pm Implementing Artificial Intelligence in Media Operations
Steven Soenens, Vice President, Product Marketing, Skyline Communications
To have flexibility, modern broadcast infrastructures are becoming all-IP and virtualized. However, with this flexibility comes a huge increase in operational complexity. This complexity in media networks has grown beyond human management, so modern operational platforms require AI-assisted intelligent fault detection (IFD), incident management, root cause analysis (RCA), forecasting, trend analysis, behavioral anomaly detection (BAD), etc. This presentation explains the use cases, benefits and challenges of using AI in the media and broadcast environment, all illustrated with real-life examples.
3.20pm Media Virtualization in a Hybrid-Cloud Environment
James Corrigan, Global Solution Architect for Media & Entertainment, Dell Technologies
Virtualisation of enterprise IT workloads was one of the most significant developments for information technology in the last 20 years. Now with all-IP standards mature and being brought to practical reality with commercial solutions from major ISVs, the pathway to an efficient, flexible virtualized media function stack is clear. This also opens up workload management across multiple cloud platforms – public / private / hybrid.
3.40pm New business models unlocked by the cloud and other enabling technologies: how cloud can enable new business models
Thierry Fautier, Vice President, Business Development & Innovation, Harmonic Inc
Content providers and service providers are now under pressure to deliver more innovative services with a shorter time to market. The classical approach based on CAPEX has shown its limits. Private Cloud can enable content providers to develop new services in a matter of weeks with a pure OPEX approach. This session presents a case study of how Telkomsel, an Indonesian mobile operator, was able to serve 4M users for the FIFA’18 World Cup.
4.00pm Media Microservices
Brick Eksten, CTO, Imagine Communications
Media Microservices level the playing field for how entertainment technology can participate in the wider ecosystem of Cloud and Data Center providing a platform for operational efficiency, innovation, and the bridge to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
4.20pm NAS that’s faster than SAN
Ben Pearce, Chief Business Officer (Asia) and Co-Founder, GB Labs
NVMe (non-volatile memory host controller interface specification), a different way of connecting SSDs, has received attention of late. However, GB Labs has determined that empowering NAS (network attached storage) in a SAN (storage area network) environment results in a faster, higher-end storage system than an NVMe-enabled SAN alone. This session will detail how NAS as a type of storage can be supercharged to perform over and above what is generally regarded as industry-standard SAN, leveraging storage technologies in exciting and beneficial new ways.
4.40pm 5G: Delivering the future of immersive media experiences
Chiranjeev Singh, Director Marketing – APAC, MediaKind
As the growth of video traffic in networks across the world continues to rise, the roll out of 5G wireless technology has come at a critical time, especially for live sports streaming. With the successful trials held during the 2018 Winter Olympics and the highly publicised 5G connectivity available at the upcoming Tokyo Games in 2020, the certainty for 5G’s role in delivering immersive experiences is beginning to take shape, especially in a Mobile first market like APAC. This presentation will also show how MediaKind and its partners Ericsson, FOX Sports, AT&T and Intel, worked together to use 5G wireless technology to successfully deliver live 4K HDR video streams over 5G for broadcast of the 118th US Open Golf Championship.
5.00pm OTT Services – Increase the Value of your Content at a Lower Operating Cost
Fabio Gattari, Director, Etere
Understanding the pros and cons of OTT and how to effectively manage it empowers decision makers. One important advantage of OTT services is its capability to measure real-time viewership data. OTT advertisements can be curated, retrieved and delivered automatically based on user profiles, enabling targeted advertising with a higher rate of conversions. The use of Content Delivery Network provides the speed that today’s audiences expect. With a highly efficient MAM system that is able to manage the end-to-end lifecycle including sales, content providers can bring the value of their content to the next level at a lower operating cost.
5.20pm How AI can improve Digital Asset Management and enrich viewers’ User Experience
Maria Lodolo D’Oria, Presales Executive, Metaliquid
AI gives broadcasters access to more detailed descriptive metadata of what is happening scene-by-scene to manage their gigantic content libraries speeding up content search and editing process. This present explains how AI is the key not only to keep up with the new trends in video consumption, but also to change the market introducing disruptive services to keep users engaged.
5.40pm The Impact AI of Broadcast quality
Julien Signes, SVP and GM Video Processing, Synamedia
To deliver the quality of broadcast to adaptive bit rate (ABR) video, the key is leveraging the power of AI in an automated fashion based around a unique set of quality metrics. The technology is designed to anticipate the subjective perception of the human eye. Julien will describe how adding this type of technology can deliver significant operational cost savings for service providers.
