TVBEurope is delighted to announce the line-up of speakers taking part in our MediaTech 360 Summit.
The two-day event will take place on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th March, and is free to join. Both days will begin at 2pm GMT.
The effects of 2020 for media companies will be long lasting, and permanent, and the period adds a significant footnote in the story of an industry already undergoing fundamental change. Against this remarkable backdrop, the MediaTech 360 Summit will explore some of the industry’s biggest technological and operational challenges, and the opportunities that lie within.
The event will cover everything from the revolutionary rise of 5G in the media chain, funding the future of TV, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and we’ll be heading to a galaxy far, far away.
Seasoned event host and speaker Oisin Lunny will serve as MC of the Summit.
Other speakers include cinematographer Greig Fraser, who will join us for a fireside chat about his work, including Disney Plus’ award-winning series The Mandalorian. Fraser will also take part in a panel on virtual production alongside Epic Games’ Ben Lumsden.
The BBC’s Purminder Gandhu will join Brendan Yam from Viacom CBS and Muki Kulhan to discuss the challenges and opportunities for content providers with 5G in the short to medium term.
Kuhlan will also join Deluxe’s Richard Welsh and KPMG’s Hugo Pinto to investigate how far automation technologies have infiltrated the traditional workflows of today’s media enterprises, and where there remain opportunities to adopt AI and machine learning along the content production, management, and delivery ecosystems.
Signiant’s Mike Flathers, Sinead Greenaway from UKTV, the DPP’s Mark Harrison and Tal Hewitt from EY Parthenon will join Lunny to highlight the technologies and trends that are shaping the evolutionary road ahead for media and entertainment businesses as included in TVBEurope’s 2021 MediaTech Outlook report.
Google’s Justin Gupta will take a look at funding the future of TV, and women’s advocacy group Rise will discuss the importance of education, mentoring and promotion in the great world of broadcast technology.
All panels and discussions are free to join and registration is open now.
