SMPTE and other bodies Like DPP, DTG , ETSI, ACES set standard for the packaging of content - both essence and metadata but increasingly it’s the connected audiences, armed with their many screens, who are really in charge. They expect content on-demand, on any device, and often for free.
In response, broadcasters must change their relationships with audiences – engaging with them directly through social media, and finding new ways to create digital revenues and compete with “digital native” players like Apple, Amazon and Netflix.
