The Future of TV Begins Now

The TV industry has changed a lot in recent years and is continually faced with new challenges. Digitalization means that more and more programs are being created. New production systems and networking are making work processes even more efficient. The content produced is not just available in a linear fashion but also online, as a download and on social media. IP-based infrastructure opens up new opportunities for production systems, including the necessary storage and distribution solutions. Virtual reality is increasingly becoming a part of everyday life. The demand for OTT content for streaming services and viewer-based content is growing all the time. Ultra HD/4K is on the rise as the new television standard.

Are you ready? Can your information and communication systems keep up with the many new challenges? Are you making use of big data for real-time analysis and using the results to develop new content?
