“Future of Media and Entertainment in the Cloud”
Wednesday, 17 July | 11am, Room A

Chris Bennett

The digital supply chain for media and entertainment content has in essence four distinct phases: content creation, content processing, content delivery, and content consumption. Each of these phases has a wide variety of service providers, technology platforms, weight of history and now a new set of essential challenges that together drive overall end-to-end system complexity. 

For years Dolby has focused on helping our customers deliver artistic intent to their audience, but today’s reality is that something like network performance can have more impact on the final experience than anything we have done with color spaces and sound fidelity. 

There’s no doubt about the sheer power and compelling nature of the forces that are driving significant experiments and even full service migrations to the cloud, but are we facing an entirely new complexity barrier that will get in the way of the experiences our customers demand?
