Over the course of IBC2015 we ran two panels on our stand investigating some of the most pressing issues the industry faces. The second panel, ‘Protect and Serve: Securing content and satisfying customers in a multiscreen world’ was chaired by Ovum’s Rob Gallagher and examined how broadcasters can provide customers with the services they need while continually securing content in an atmosphere where piracy is constantly evolving and innovating in turn. Read more about the background of the panel and why it’s such an important one to be holding at this time here. Participating were: Chem Assayag EVP Sales and Business Development at Viaccess-Orca, Rob Gallagher, Director Research & Analysis Media & Entertainment at Ovum, Ron Paans, Technical Director at M7 Group and Kieren Portley, Vice President, Studio and Spanish Production at ESPN.
The panel was lived streamed courtesy of our friends at LiveU, but you can watch it again below and we also have a selection of tweets from the live Twitter feed that gives a flavour of the debate.
