“The rate of change in the video industry continues to accelerate as advancements in streaming formats, video quality, and artificial intelligence put remarkable new tools in place to enhance viewing experiences while reducing operational costs,” says Keith Wymbs, chief marketing officer, AWS Elemental. “To keep pace, video providers must expand their capabilties by making the move to cloud-based infrastructure and preparing for new and emerging media standards, such as the Common Media Application Format. We look forward to sharing innovations and insights that will help attendees navigate the exciting future of video production and delivery at IBC 2017.”
