A special NTS under special circumstances
The EBU Network Technology Seminar is the key forum for media technologists preparing major production infrastructure upgrades and wanting to future-proof their investments with media-over-IP and cloud technology. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the 2020 edition of NTS will be held online. To support the industry in these exceptional times, EBU Members can register free of charge this year, while the non-members can join at a reduced rate of only EUR 50.
As usual, conversations at NTS are centred on the first-hand experience of those at the coalface – some of the world’s foremost experts, users and developers of IP technologies, cloud technologies and cybersecurity, including speakers from AMWA, BBC, Bloomberg, CBC/Radio Canada, Discovery/Eurosport, GV, IRT, NASA, RTBF, SMPTE, VRT, and EBU itself.
