There is less than one month to go before we travel to Amsterdam and enter the RAI Exhibition and Convention Center for the 51st edition of IBC. This year’s show marks our IBC debut as MediaKind, the new brand identity for Ericsson Media Solutions, and our first opportunity to showcase our extensive product portfolio and solutions.
It’s an incredibly exciting time for our company and the industry as a whole; media technology is continually evolving and transforming the way we experience the world. We can see this through the shift towards the convergence of live and over-the-top (OTT) content, the emergence of compelling mobile service delivery, increasingly personalized multiscreen experiences and the move from traditional broadcast to cloud and IP. These technologies are helping to power converged services that are helping to drive down operational costs and enable TV service providers to compete effectively with OTT players.
We can also see this shift demonstrated through consumer behavior, as viewers look for ever more compelling and vibrant on-screen content. Methods of personalization – such as universal search- are generating more engaging and relevant ways to consume media with greater ease. Emerging formats such as virtual reality, immersive 360º video, and new possibilities to apply the internet of things are powering new monetization opportunities and transforming the human entertainment experience.
Experience the shift at IBC 2018
To meet the ever-changing expectations of consumers, broadcasters, service providers and operators need to quickly adapt their offerings and deliver next-generation immersive media experiences. Throughout IBC, we will show how, as MediaKind, our pioneering technologies and solutions are enabling the industry to evolve and adapt to the next shift in the future of media.
