Ignore the Mirror Concentrate on the Road Ahead
IABM has just published its latest biannual Buying Trends Report, giving a unique
overview of the key issues and latest developments in the fast-changing
broadcast and media industry, says Peter White, CEO, IABM...

T

he report also provides a perfect
backgrounder on where the
industry is heading for visitors to
BroadcastAsia 2018.
What is clear from the report is
that efficiency is the most important
driver of product purchases for
broadcast and media companies. This
is no surprise as the need to contain
costs while serving fragmented
audiences on multiple platforms is
key to survival today - which is why
the most important strategic priority
remains multi-platform delivery. The
cloud is playing a vital role in this according to the research, 37% of
media technology buyers have already

adopted the cloud, with 55% more
planning to do in the next two to three
years.
Another
important
trend
is
towards in-house development, with
broadcasters now building 37% of
their solutions internally. Technology
suppliers need to take note of this
and adopt an open approach to
the customer's whole supply chain.
Creative
collaboration
between
technology suppliers and buyers
is now the only way forward. IABM
members can access the full report at
www.theiabm.org.
It was clear at NAB this year that
IP has moved on from being 'in

development' to 'in service' with an
increasing number of broadcast and
media companies. IP is of course a
key enabler for the drive to greater
efficiency, and the number of allIP installations has grown from a
trickle only 18 months ago to being
first choice for many today. IP is one
of the topics being covered in the
IABM Theatre at the show - headlined
'Tomorrow's Media Toolbox - Today'.
Another
major
theme
for
BroadcastAsia 2018 is Artificial
Intelligence,
which
is
being
deployed
across
production,
content management, distribution,
monetisation and delivery. The

primary drivers for this are the
increased efficiency AI can bring to
the 'media factory', together with its
ability to deliver actionable business
insights from consumer data.
In summary, the only certainty today
is change - and it's happening faster
and faster as our industry refashions
itself to meet the challenges of
transforming consumer demands. The
way forward is to bring all sides of the
industry closer together, and to help
drive this, IABM has announced that
it will be forming regional Customer
Advisory Boards. Seek us out at the
show if you would like to be part of the
future. www.theiabm.org
