"The industry is still in a state of unparalleled change," said White. "And while we deal with the challenges associated with this shift, it is heartening to see that overall the outlook is positive.

"This conference has been designed to deliver practical solutions and advice to our members on how best to cope with these changes, against the backdrop of finding new business models, operating in a multi-platform content delivery environment and handling the cultural shift from hardware-based broadcast technology, to software-led operations."

The event featured key industry figures and experts delivering presentations and participating in panel debates that covered topics such as new business models, the adoption of IP across broadcast workflows, cloud and software-defined environments, and consumer trends.
