For both broadcasters and end users, the industry is experiencing unprecedented change. Many of the traditional large suppliers have had to re-invent themselves, often within new management and ownership structures. End users making large investments must second guess future trends to avoid early obsolescence. Large long-term commitments in technology and key decisions are not only based upon what suppliers offer but also their vision of the future. In addition new entrants both large and small are increasing their influence.
The IABM will launch a major piece of industry research in 2013 - the Broadcast and Media Technology, Global Market Valuation and Strategy to 2018. Building on previous editions this has become the industry standard for valuing the market and individual segments plus identifying key strategies and trends.
In this session, featuring commentary from Peter White, Director General of the IABM, an executive summary of the research will be presented followed by three senior executives from well-respected industry organisations analysing and debating the key indicators.
