We are excited to announce our first Technology Pathfinders (a networking group for broadcast executives interested in exploring innovations and future trends in operations and technology) event of the year!

From production studios to boardrooms, media executives are asking questions about a range of new technologies with the potential to “revolutionise” the industry.  But which new technologies need to be front of mind for decision makers in 2018?

How will the use of voice change how audiences search for and discover content? How big is the potential for AI and machine learning to revolutionise the broadcast value chain? Will VR justify the hype or does the opportunity lie in AR instead? Is the shift to the cloud the biggest story going on behind the scenes?

Which new technologies need to be part of every media company’s product roadmap – and which can be parked for now? Join fellow executives this January to discover which trends will really matter for the UK media industry in the next three years.

We would like to invite you to an exclusive forum, exploring the key technology developments set to shape the UK media and broadcasting landscape with a panel of senior industry experts, including:

  • Susie Buckridge – Director of Product and Business Development – YouView
  • Sinead Greenaway – Chief Technology and Operations Officer – UKTV
  • Sylvain Thevenot – Managing Director – Netgem
  • Tom Griffiths – Director of Broadcast and Distribution Technology – ITV
