The exposition targeted “digital natives” and next-level innovative technologies.
Taking place at the docks of Paris, November 5th-6th, SATIS 2019 welcomed professionals from various sectors ranging from film to new screen. Trend-setters, potential collaborators and buyers were there- ready to dive into the ocean of new-age technologies on-site.
Our Experience at SATIS 2019
Its third year of attendance, Newsbridge was excited to attend this year’s exposition. Amongst intense competition, the team received Mediakwest’s First-Place Trophy in Best Post-Production. Furthermore, this was the second year in a row that Newsbridge took home the prestigious award. This trophy was awarded for the company’s latest feature: Live Schedule, which allows for real-time recording of UHD video streams from a web-browser. It is specifically helpful for streaming that require precision and punctuality (i.e. sports, events, conferences, recurring news).
As an exhibitor at the event, the Newsbridge team not only gained but also delivered unique insight related to future-focused solutions and trends in the media industry. This was by far the event of the year in terms of discovering new, innovative solutions in film, broadcast and content publication. The same technologies that are offering increased productivity and more business traction for their potential adopters.
After making the rounds, networking and attending several informative presentations highlighting the latest trends in media innovation, the Newsbridge team had several key takeaways from the event related to what innovative solutions prospects are looking for in the media industry.
Gone with the Old, in with the Cloud!
Server dematerialization was a hot topic at the event, with various key note speakers mentioning this trend. Additionally, a couple speeches of note were My TV in the Cloud and the Cloud in TV production and diffusion, just to name a few. From centralized asset management platforms to online storage and automated workflows- it’s the 21st century and the cloud is where it’s at.
Hypervigilance: Cyber Security & Privacy of Data
With recent and painstaking public security and privacy breaches over the last few years, the world of media was one of the first to take note. Unsurprisingly, security was a common theme at SATIS, with organizations showcasing secure APIs and SaaS/PaaS platforms among much more.
AI or Die: Necessity to Stay Ahead of the Game
Everyone is talking about AI, but this years’ attendees came to see it live and in action. Furthermore, with major advancements in machine learning and computer science, machines are now able to carry out more cognitive functions than ever before. Moreover, as one of the most modern brackets of technology available, such functions are now entering the realm of media, with endless possibilities.
Media is Getting V Real with Virtual Reality
The days of dreaming of holograms and and real-life special effects are over. Virtual reality is here and the media industry is turning it up a notch, ensuring that it is accessible to everyone.
