Del

In line with its commitment to bringing the most influential thought leaders and business minds to the region, IBC is pleased to announce that this year’s IBC Content Everywhere MENA event will embrace and examine those topics at the forefront of IBC2015.

Produced and tailored especially for the MENA region, and featuring an international speaker line-up, the conference will employ cutting edge technology to deliver an unparalleled interactive experience. The event features a mixture of presentations and panel sessions with top speakers from broadcast, telecoms, media and content, offering a high-end editorially led programme together with strategic networking opportunities.

Particular highlights to capture the interest and imagination will include unique insights into: The Future of OTT and Online Offerings in the Region and Beyond: With OTT and online TV offerings becoming such a core way for consumers to view media, it is essential that media distributors stay ahead of the game. This panel session will consider the impact of new entrants and consolidation within the region’s OTT market, together with the possible negative effect of content packaging constraints on consumer subscription levels. Further deliberations will involve how to engage and retain new audiences through the use of social media, the influence of traditional broadcast companies on the OTT space and the necessity of OTT collaborations with telcos.

Content is King: Strategies to stay ahead in an increasingly competitive content environment: As consumers are increasingly calling the shots, it has never been more important to ensure the right content is delivered, irrespective of the platform. Content is the key asset in every media business, wherever you sit in the value chain and this session will address the issues in developing an effective strategy whether it’s fighting for commissioning rights, creating original content or looking to digital-original content creators. With the increasing popularity of online gaming channels, the panel will also consider whether there are there lessons to be learned from the difference in content and multiplatform delivery.

How are Disruptive Tech Start-ups and Media Companies Using Each Other’s Platforms to Create Their Own Success? Buzzfeed is very open about the major role that exploiting social media platforms such as Twitter has played in their success - and this is not an unusual story. With new media players and tech start-ups constantly appearing across the world, this session will look at the ways in which these companies are using social platforms to grow their image, how to create and implement a strategy across multiple platforms and the best methods to engage and attract audiences.

Among the influential contributors to these debates are:

Martin Trickey, Group Head of Digital, Warner Bros. Television Production (UK): Having started his career in digital at games company Uproar in 1999 where he was responsible for the online versions of Family Fortunes and Catchphrase, Martin moved on to become Head of Multiplatform Production at the BBC and Creative Director at TwoFour Digital. Now Group Head of Digital at Warner Brothers TV Production UK, Martin is currently overseeing The Voice amongst other projects and was named as one of BIMA’s Hot 100 for 2014.

JC Cangilla, SVP Business Development, New Form Digital (USA): Cangilla oversees all distribution deals, partnership development and licensing deals for the studio, leveraging New Form’s high-profile production partners and talent to develop customised opportunities across multiple platforms. Having run the video licensing business for Yahoo, securing content deals with more than 75+ partners, his experience in the digital video space has been squarely focused on business development and redefining the way deals are done, establishing himself as one of the leading dealmakers in digital video.

David Butorac, CEO, OSN (UAE): David Butorac brings a wealth of experience gained over a 30 year career in some of the world's most successful broadcasting and multi-channel Television companies, including the positions of Head of Operations and Station Manager at BSkyB, Group Chief Operating Officer at Astro, Malaysia's largest broadcasting and cross-media company and President of News Corporation's Star TV in Hong Kong.

James Pringle, Co-Founder & CEO, SuggesTV (UK): The owner and lead contributor of many forward thinking LinkedIn Groups, James is an entrepreneur with great vision and insight into the media world. With a broad understanding of mobile, video and native advertising, as well as a strong interest in automation, artificial intelligence and future technologies, James founded SuggesTV after realising that every media site he spoke to was trying to increase their video views and that artificial intelligence didn’t just mean robots, drones and driverless cars! SuggesTV uses context, data and machine learning to help publishers maximise the revenue potential of their video library.

Mohamed Abuagla, CIO/CTO, Aljazeera Media Network (Qatar): With over 20 years of global technical consultancy and executive management experience, Mohamed Abuagla is the CIO/CTO and Executive Director for Technology & Operations for Aljazeera Media Network.

IntegenX Applauds the Passage of the Rapid DNA Act of 201721.8.2017 12:00Pressemelding

IntegenX Inc., the global market leader for Rapid DNA human identification, applauds the signing into law of S.139 and HR.510, The Rapid DNA Act of 2017. The legislation will allow law enforcement agencies, under standards and guidelines established by the FBI, to perform real-time DNA testing at time of arrest, within booking stations. Similar to how fingerprint analysis has evolved from a paper and ink practice to a point-of-action technology, DNA testing has now become possible in 90 minutes within a booking station, while a suspect is still in custody. With processing times reduced from weeks to less than two hours, the potential to identify or exonerate a suspect quickly will make a meaningful impact on law enforcement. IntegenX thanks U.S. Senate sponsor Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and lead co-sponsor Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) as well as House sponsor Congressman

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today the findings of a recently published study in which researchers at Firat University in Turkey evaluated the performance of Masimo PVi®, a noninvasive and continuous measurement of the dynamic changes in perfusion index (Pi) that occur during respiratory cycles, as the basis of a goal-directed fluid therapy (GDFT) protocol during laparoscopic bariatric surgery on mechanically-ventilated patients.1 In the study, Dr. Demirel and colleagues sought to evaluate whether using GDFT guided by PVi on morbidly obese patients undergoing laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) surgery might result in less intravenous fluid use without compromising outcomes.
