As advocacy group, Rise, enters its second year championing and supporting women in the broadcasting industry, IBC speaks with participants from Avid, BT and Deluxe. As consumers navigate the crowded OTT and linear TV market, traditional broadcasters are also looking to diversify and add value beyond their core offering. The call to deliver content in more formats, the continued rise of immersive and object-based audio, and the prospect of further loudness recommendations are among the issues making fresh demands on the tools used audio post.
The growth in OTT platforms has boosted demand for the localisation and regionalisation of content. And the cloud is proving to be a terrific enabler, writes David Davies. The shift to 4K and 8K production has required improvements downstream, with those involved in managing and manipulating images in need of greater processing power and increased storage. In part two of an IBC series on cloud adoption, companies that have launched cloud products offer their top tips for how best to bring an idea from the drawing board to the market. In the first of a two-part series on cloud adoption, IBC looks at how vendors of varying size and age such as Scality, Signiant, Deluxe, M2A Media and Meta have rolled out cloud solutions for the industry.
