IPTV & 2nd Screen, The Future of Broadcasting

As high speed broadband becomes more widely available, so does IPTV. As technologies change and merge, IPTV is becoming more mainstream in society. The number of global IPTV subscribers is expected to grow from 28 million in 2009 to 83 million in 2013.

This briefing will explain how and why people and companies are sending television programmes over IP data networks. You will discover how global television services are already available through broadband networks such as the internet and the differences between managed and over-the-top (OTT) services and service providers. You will also learn how consumers are increasing using mobile technology as a 'second screen' to interact with television. The session will include brief overviews of key technologies, current trends and hot topics for this fast paced industry as well as some demonstrations of IPTV services.

 

Why attend and what will you get out of it?

  • Discover new opportunties that are being developed through IPTV
  • Consider how use of a second screen could impact industry and business
  • Uncover ways to exploit IPTV and second screen within your business
  • Become aware of market trends and plan ahead to stay on top of the game

  • Companies looking to gain insight into emerging technologies
  • SME Owner/managers wanting to apply new technologies within their company
