Themes and keynote speakers for 2014 will feature:

Thursday 11 September

Theme: Taking The Pulse. Where does broadcast fit in an IP-centric world?

The ongoing collision of broadcast with IP has been the biggest fundamental development in the history of the industry, impacting the entire value chain across the creation, management and distribution of content. Thursday’s conference sessions will examine where we are in the process, and consider the crucially important issue of spectrum allocation. New technologies are presenting new opportunities for monetisation, with targeted ads and real-time bidding systems opening up. Sessions also look at innovations in news production, and consider the future of rolling news channels.

Keynote Session: Assessing the health of broadcast TV

Time: 09:00 – 10:30

Speakers: David Abraham, CEO, Channel 4; Bruce Tuchman, President, Sundance Channel Global and MGM Channel Global; Charlie Vogt, CEO, Imagine Communications & Gates Air; Sam Barnett, CEO, MBC

Friday 12 September

Theme: Embracing Change. Technology enabling new opportunities & new challenges

Technological change has accelerated over the past decade and it shows no sign of slowing down, impacting every stage of the production workflow. The list of disruptors is long and rapidly evolving. Tapeless workflows have given birth to significant cloud-based collaboration and production opportunities, while the companion screen has become an integral part of an increasingly genuine transmedia production and distribution model. Ultra HD is looming large and becoming an important component of IPTV strategies. Friday’s conference sessions will assess the future of technology and the impacts it may have.

Keynote Session: Transforming TV and Beyond: Google's vision of video for everyone, by everyone and everywhere

Time: 10:00 – 11:00

Speaker: Matt Brittin, President, Google Europe

Keynote Session: The challenges ahead

Time: 18:00 – 18:30

Speaker: Neelie Kroes, Vice President, European Commission

Saturday 13 September

Theme: The Impact of New Players. The challenges to the established order

The march of the digital content players has been astonishing, raising the spectre of cord cutting as a host of new players seeks to enter a burgeoning market for on-demand content. These sessions will look at the changing roles of content producers, aggregators, service providers, and the potential for disruption to the business models and plans of the established order. Opportunities to exploit the potential of big data will be examined, while a session considers innovations stemming from the Winter Olympics and this summer’s FIFA World Cup.

Keynote Session: Realities of transformation: How BBC Worldwide is adapting to the new media world

Time: 10:30 - 11:30

Speaker: Tim Davie, CEO BBC Worldwide and Director, Global

Sunday 14 September

Theme: Preparing for the Future. Understanding the nature of possible disruption

Broadcasters, platform operators and others are devising new services, changing the nature of their existing relationships with advertising, and offering more immersive multiplatform viewing experiences. New technologies are presenting new opportunities for monetisation, with tagged ads and real-time bidding systems for advertising slots opening up as broadcasters learn to leverage the power of the return path. But engaging with the viewer in an increasingly untethered and multiscreen world remains a challenge. This day’s future-facing sessions will seek to guide delegates through the newly blended world, where TV becomes even more social and reality is augmented.

Keynote Session: Television’s expanding universe

Time: 10:00 – 11:00

Speaker: Professor Brian Cox OBE

Monday 15 September

Theme: Key Outcomes & Conclusions. Explaining, inspiring, forecasting and IBC Big Screen Experience

As well as providing an overview and summary of the previous day’s conference sessions, Monday will also feature the exclusive IBC Big Screen Keynote, the anchor session of the IBC Big Screen Experience Programme. This new programme for 2014 is built around the theme ‘Explore the World of Disruptive Cinema’ and is free to all IBC attendees.

IBC Big Screen Keynote: An odyssey of cinematic innovation

Time: 09:30 – 11:00

Speaker: Douglas Trumbull, President, Trumbull Ventures LLC
