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

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

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...

Today, there are a slew of interoperability standards being promoted by big names to make this happen: HomeKit, Brillo and Alljoyn. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...
