  • What can we learn from Aristotle and Plato about change and what's happening in the broadcast technology sector right now? Who are the players creating real change that adds real value to the bottom line?

  • The broadcast industry is undergoing a period of significant change in the underlying technology used to manage the creation, production and delivery of content from creators to consumers.

    I fear that madness may have descended upon the connected TV market. Why? Well, in two ways. Let’s step back to the days before so many devices “benefited” from internet connectivity.  From the early 90s – pioneered in the US by cable operators and set-top box manufacturers – two-way connectivity to allow on-demand content access and this has been a motivating goal for many in the industry.
