MUMBAI: Imagine Communications has unveiled the schedule and speaker lineup for the IBC2017 edition of the company’s popular ImagineLIVE Power Sessions, a series of presentations and interactive discussions featuring prominent executives and experts from across the media and entertainment and IT industries. This year’s thought-leadership series, presented at Imagine’s IBC stand (4.A01), also includes a line-up of Master Classes, topical educational courses led by Imagine Communications subject matter experts.

Power Sessions and Master Classes will be conducted at lunchtime and in the early afternoon throughout the exhibition. The IBC2017 Power Session series will include testimonials from customers and highlights of how media companies from around the world are adapting operations to next-generation architectures to achieve new levels of agility and evolve their media facilities to meet future market requirements. Power Sessions and Master Classes will focus on the solutions and technology trends, such as microservices, inventory optimisation, real-world IP deployments and OTT distribution, that are influencing the direction of evolving business models and monetisation practices.

“The media industry is now fully engaged in transitioning operations to a new technology foundation based on next-generation architectures that leverage IP, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) compute and networking resources, virtualization and other IT technology attributes,” said Imagine Communications CEO Charlie Vogt, who will be kicking off the ImagineLIVE sessions with a special keynote on the impact of microservices that features representatives from IBM and Al Jazeera. “ImagineLIVE Power Sessions and Master Classes spotlight the trends and technologies influencing the direction of the industry and provide valuable insights into the remaining challenges and future opportunities facing today’s media and entertainment ecosystem.”
