Big Data Applications in Broadcasting
Emerald

#ffd90c

From machine to machine communications (M2M) to the Internet of Things, 'Big Data' is becoming a significant factor in almost every technology sector. In this session, we shall see how innovative applications of data mining techniques, data analytics, plus some innovative experiments in the broadcast 'cloud', are opening up new opportunities for broadcasters. Big Data techniques are being deployed in equipment in the home, in the transmission network, and in multimedia asset management and production. Delegates will learn about these new technologies and techniques, and the value chains and new business cases they create.

The Human Interface - is the Remote Control Redundant now?
Emerald
+ _
#ffd90c

Man-machine interfaces, human sensing technologies and search & recommendation algorithms have come a long way, but in the home most of us still use a remote control to browse a traditional programme guide. Many believe that this is about to change! In this thought-provoking session, we shall hear about the latest sensing systems which can determine and react to a viewer's posture, behaviour, emotion and interest. We shall consider programme recommendation systems which allow natural speech discourse between you and your TV; and we shall learn from one of the world's largest on-line retailers, how this technology can be combined with social media and multi-screen viewing to provide new commercial opportunities.

High Efficiency Video Coding meets UHDTV Broadcasting
Emerald
+ _
#ffd90c
HEVC is a new and vastly complex compression technology which will be essential for the practical broadcast of UHD services. But how far is the industry from implementing efficient HEVC at staggeringly high UHD processing rates? This is a huge engineering challenge. We have invited some of the key technical players in the business to explain the state of the art: for both 4k and 8k television, with both HDR and enhanced colour gamuts, and with system maturity developing over the coming few years. This will be a practical look at the status of UDHTV broadcasting and all our speakers will discuss their real-world trials and experiences.

High Dynamic Range Video - Status & Strategies
Emerald

#ffd90c
HDR is an exciting new development in broadcast television which will have far-reaching implications for production practice, delivery chains and domestic viewing. It will allow imagery to match more closely the characteristics of human vision, producing a startlingly life-like rendition. It will also be a powerful tool for broadcasters: enhancing both flexibility in news gathering and creativity in post production. In this session we shall hear strategic views on HDR from three of the world's most well-know broadcasters - a rare opportunity, not to be missed.

Broadcast Site Planning: Latest on RF Safety, Coverage and Spectrum
Emerald
+ _
#ffd90c
This session will provide the broadcast engineer with a high value tutorial update on a number of important topics related to site planning - including regulatory considerations and coverage performance. The session comprises: an overview and update on international standards for RF safety, presented by the chair of the IEEE International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety (ICES); system design methods for optimizing antenna performance at transmission sites to maximize signal coverage, with demonstrations of method of moment and terrain based modeling software; plus a timely update on critical spectrum issues, in the lead up to the World Radiocommunications Conference 2015 (WRC-15) being held in Geneva, Switzerland, in November 2015.

Cutting Edge Technologies I - Producing Ultra High Definition Television
Emerald
+ _
#ffd90c
As we move towards a world where UHD is the norm for television broadcasting, we must consider the vast practicalities of how we design the production equipment and practices which will create, process and store these huge images. In this session we shall examine the latest thinking in this fast moving topic. We shall begin by looking widely at the challenges of 120Hz capture and production in the studio, including chroma key. Then we shall turn our attention to producing slow-motion UHD images with a novel synthetic interpolation process. Finally, we hear from a major Japanese broadcaster about its exciting 8k UHD production facilities which will be transmitting trial broadcasts next year and regular services in 2020. This presentation will describe trials to-date and several world firsts -including development of OB vans, 22.2 audio production, 4k /8k /HD up-and-down conversion, HDR developments and multi-format workflows.
