High Dynamic Range or HDR has now moved from a new technology to being an everyday part of the technical lexicon. But, how to make the best use of HDR and what will be the impacts on production techniques? This session is likely to provide valuable answers.The value of taking content to audiences through multiple types of distribution, rather than trying to force audiences to come only to their sites to watch content. 'Are we going to continue to try to force audiences to come to us, or are we going to take our content to the audience? In an attention economy, this has become an even more important question than ever before, and increasingly broadcasters and content creators are recognising they need wider and more diverse distribution than just their own platforms. But how can they do this without losing control of their content, their data, and their ability to generate an ROI that will sustain them in the long term?'
