 Will Munkara-Kerr’s presentation, ‘The key to second-screen success: Transforming unused content into premium second-screen content’, will take place at 2.25pm on Tuesday July 23 as part of the session on ‘Understanding the business of OTT’. It will explore the opportunity for broadcasters to use their existing production infrastructure to turn unused content from live events - such as unseen camera angles and highlights - into premium content for viewers’ second screens.

Munkara-Kerr will highlight case studies of broadcasters in Asia and Europe that have successfully embraced social media and second screens as a means of providing premium content, reducing the risk of losing viewers, increasing viewer engagement, maximizing content and creating new revenue streams.

At  Amber Technology booth G11, EVS will be showcasing enriched live solutions. These practical innovations maximize broadcasters’ live production infrastructure to deliver content to wider audiences and enable more creative programming. Based on EVS’ XT3 server, these innovations help broadcasters and content owners maximize the value of live content and make it instantly available across multiple, integrated workflows, from venues to the living room.

EVS will also highlight new products and features across Sports, and Entertainment markets:

EVS Sports will showcase LSM Connect, a new tablet-based companion to the MulticamLSM controller that makes it quicker and easier to index, browse and select clips, and manage playlists. They will also highlight the latest Epsio live graphics solutions for inserting graphic overlays in real time or instant replays.

EVS Entertainment will showcase the new Nano Air playout software controller for TV studios and on-stage entertainment. Combined with EVS’ XSnano servers, it offers reliable, cost-effective multichannel playout capabilities for broadcasters, studios and rental facilities.

We look forward to see you at SMPTE!
