Vegas lights up to host the NAB Show 2016. As the industry gears up to catch the latest in the show, we bring you the top four driving forces for broadcasters in 2016.
Your Favorite Content Anytime, Anywhere
How many times have you watched all the seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. till date? Or played those quizzes circulating on Facebook that determines which F.R.I.E.N.D.S. character do you resemble?
In the age of digitization, the eternal wait for when your favorite season would be telecasted on TV is over. Now, content can be accessed at the drop of a hat. Today, digital asset management has made it possible to archive, access, share and distribute content to the viewers on the platform of their choice, anytime and anywhere.
As DAM/ MAM (Digital Asset Management/Media Asset Management) vendors bring the yesteryears closer to you, watch out how they innovate to make content inter-operable between systems and broadcast workflows.
Headphones plugged in, eyes glued to phone screen – a common sight at any public transport, right? While our older generation complains that we are becoming unsocial, watching videos in free time has become a routine. No time to go for a movie – watch a short film instead!
With digital archiving around the corner, we don’t miss any episode of our favorite programs? Over the top (OTT) technology ensures our favorite program gets recorded while we are busy. Video-on-demand brings entertainment to our living room at our will.
As content producers move from making two hour movies to 20-minutes short films, the industry gears up for the next big change. New innovations around interactive TV technology, cloud based media resource planning and video digitization is something to look out for at the NAB Show 2016.
World of Mobile Apps
From networking on social media to playing games, from ordering grocery to keeping a tab of finances, our daily life is ruled by various apps. Be it making travel plans, getting news across as and when it happens, sharing photos, messaging, playing games, or even measuring our steps and daily calories – apps influence almost all our daily activities.
With drones capturing videos, monitoring crops, and flying quadcopters, mobile app developers are setting new standards every day. The NAB Show 2016 promises to introduce a host of new apps to drive engagement with functionality-rich experiences for the broadcast industry.
Merger of Real and Reel Life
You don’t miss a single movie of your favorite star, read all his interviews, listened to all his shows, and follow him on social media. Wouldn’t it be great if you could meet and click a selfie with him? Or attend one of his live shows?
As reel life spills over real life, consumers are looking at extending their digital experience to real life experience. With 3D, 4D and 7D technology already popular, industry is moving from watching a movie to living it with 4DX technology, where viewers live the experience with environmental effects.
How the industry players continue to innovate to provide immersive cinematic experience to consumers is something to watch out for this year.
