Among the topics to be covered at the various IABM events at BroadcastAsia 2018 are microservices, blockchain, artificial intelligence, real-time IP, object-based storage, VR and OTT advertising.

The International Association of Broadcast Manufacturers (IABM) has organised a range of events and services at BroadcastAsia 2018, taking place between 26-28 June at the Suntec Centre in Singapore as part of the wider ConnecTechAsia event.

On June 26, under the title ‘Tomorrow’s media toolbox – today’, the session kicks off at 2pm in the IABM Theatre (6Q3-04) in the Innovation Hub. An expert list of speakers will be covering topics from microservices, blockchain and artificial intelligence to real-time IP, object-based storage, VR and OTT advertising.

On 27 June in room 326, IABM will present the latest research findings and conclusions from both the vendor and end-user sides of the industry and take a look at where the industry is heading next – with a focus on the rapidly evolving APAC market. A panel discussion will follow, featuring Asia business leaders with a focus on AI and telcos.

The IABM Technical Breakfast on 28 June is titled : AI – is it for real or just marketing hoopla for smart data crunching? This IABM member-only event, which starts at 9.00am in room 326, will have a panel looking at the reality of AI in broadcasting and media today.

The IABM member lounge will be open throughout the show.

“BroadcastAsia is a strategic partner of IABM for good reason. It’s the premier show in the region and a great place to check out what’s happening in our industry now, and what’s coming next,” said Peter Bruce, IABM Director, APAC. “As well as all the formal events we are running during BroadcastAsia, the IABM team will be on hand throughout the show to support members’ activities and provide advice and introductions to facilitate better business.”
