Satellite’s Role in Broadcast & Media
With the content ecosystem changing daily, SATELLITE is an excellent forum to hear a different perspective on what 5G, 4K and OTT means for your business. This year’s Broadcast & Media forum includes a State of the Union Address for consumer satellite. With OTT and new tech on the horizon, it’s easy to forget that DTH is still satellite’s most profitable segment. This hour-long session will look at whether satellite TV will continue to be the golden goose and what opportunities exist for DTH to team up with content producers for exclusive offerings. We’ve already seen such integrations among cable operators, including AMC Networks agreeing to create exclusive content for Charter Communications. Will satellite follow suit?
The conference’s Broadcast & Media track also will look at satellite’s role in live events, including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (with Youngsuk Jeon, COO of KT Corporation), as well as the capacity and interest in 8K video (with Frederik Simeons, CTO of Newtec). And of course, there’s a session devoted to streaming players. Cable has been furiously integrating Netflix into set-top boxes. How do other OTT services stand out and get similar treatment?
These topics and more will be discussed at SATELLITE 2018, which takes place March 12-15 in Washington, D.C. It’s a great opportunity to hear from more than 14,500 professional and see tech from 350+ companies.
