Media information management is an important aspect of broadcasting. As IT-based technology becomes the norm, it is essential that broadcasters use flexible models including web technologies as well as agile systems and architectures supporting adaptation to new business models workflows, and preventing vendor lock-in situations. The use of semantic modelling and flexible IP & service-based ‘Service Oriented Architectures’ offer greater interoperability over current system design practices that are usually proprietary. The volume of data is growing but also its value. It is crucial to be able to efficiently manage, extract, index and retrieve information through the value chain, using well established conceptual and process models.
EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan
Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.
