    The seemingly simple act of getting content from its producers to major media outlets and then creating versions required to meet technical, geographic, and regulatory requirements for distribution on many platforms is far from simple. Content delivery specifications spanning dozens of pages leave many bewildered and often result in content being delivered in far from an on-air ready state. The No... View full abstract»

    Pay TV has evolved from a walled garden, set-top box model to include online services. Although there are numerous operator and consumer benefits that result from this shift, it also opens up tremendous piracy threats that are a nightmare to control. The sheer volume of information being shared in a more open environment means that manpower alone is insufficient to process and detect threats effec... View full abstract»

    This paper looks at the drivers of, the requirements for, and the essential functionality of the cognitive data management strategy and how these principles may apply to media and entertainment (M&E) workflows. In addition, this paper will show how such a metadata-centric approach can help companies overcome data silos and enable information technology (IT) planners to take advantage of any storag...

    In this paper, we address two significant components of typical post-production workflows in current entertainment industry: (a) shot change detection and (b) dead- or stuck-pixel detection. The former involves identifying precise temporal boundaries of cinematographic content in order to analyze quality of cuts, while the latter is useful for localizing and correcting spatial anomalies that emerg...

    Interoperable Master Format (IMF) is becoming a reality for content distribution due to the benefits of cost reduction and straightforward processing. The generation of IMF packages for masters, localized versions, and editorial versions to manage and optimize the media exchanged. But adopting IMF in Media Asset Management (MAM) systems to implement true end-to-end workflows has several implicatio... View full abstract»

    This paper details the working methodology of the cyber attackers and define a sample strategy that can be used to deter, detect, and successfully defend against this kind of attack. The concept of the cyber kill chain will be discussed and mapped to the relevant stages of the broadcast chain. Any device that has an internet protocol management interface is susceptible of command and control by an... View full abstract»

    Ideally, data in a multicontent delivery network (CDN) setup are load balanced dynamically using realtime traffic information gathered throughout the delivery chain. This paper provides the rationale and architectural guidelines for an online multi-CDN distribution backend, abstracting the content publication and playout logic from the actual delivery networks used. It describes the essential tech... View full abstract»
