From the Camera to the Consumer – Monday, April 9 at 4:30-5:15 p.m. in CMIP Debate Theater SU10804CM
Session Description: This year, global IP traffic is expected to pass a zettabyte per month with IP-based video making up at least 70% of this total. While the delivery of video moves increasingly to the internet, content piracy is still a major problem with a detrimental impact on artists, studios and, ultimately, consumers through offset costs. This CM|IP Panel brings together experts from the spheres of content security to look at the current state of the market and examine the emerging trends that content owners and operators need to consider. It also looks at the legal and technological avenues that can protect IP and examine the role that the wider industry can play in making content available for monetization.

Session Description: Powerful software tools, the IP revolution and the internet have dramatically altered how the TV industry carries out the business of content production, distribution and monetization. Behind the scenes, the data centers and networks serving content are looking at new ways of operating to allow the rapid provisioning of resources to manage video and the associated elements needed for tasks such as VoD delivery, compression and caching. This CM|IP Panel brings together experts with knowledge of technologies such as software-defined networking and storage to shed light on the subject, and separate the fact from the hype. It will examine and answer tough questions about the technical benefits and limitations and examine real-world examples where software-based IP technologies can deliver tangible benefits.
