Newsletter Issue 10 - Giugno 2019

Halfway through the year!

Before we list the topics in this newsletter, if you were at NAB and you met with us, thank you! We're moving on to the next big show. With just a couple of months to go, we'd like to invite you to join us at the IBC Show 2019! We will be back this September 13 to 17 at RAI Amsterdam—stand 7.D55. In case you're headed that way, we'd love for you to swing by so we can talk about the most important topics and issues for the Media and Broadcast industry, some of which we've actually included in this issue.

Industry events aside, we've got a mixed bag of interesting topics for you in this newsletter. Some pervasive topics like AI, digital transformation, and going green, span industries beyond our own Media and Broadcast so you'll find some interesting articles here. We're also looking at the arrival of 8K, what's next for IP, eSports, and IABM's new content chain industry model, and a primer on live streaming hardware encoders. As promised, diverse but pervasive.

Happy reading!

Why Electric Buses Haven't Taken Over the World—Yet

In lots of ways, the electric bus feels like a technology whose time has come. Transportation is responsible for about a quarter of global emissions, and those emissions are growing faster than in any other sector. While buses are just a small slice of the worldwide vehicle fleet, they have an outsize effect on the environment. Here’s what's stands between you and a cleaner commute.

Google’s AI can create videos from start and end frames alone

We're now at the realm of content created by AI. Google’s AI research division has developed a novel system that can generate “plausible” video sequences from no more than a single first and final frame, a process known as “inbetweening.” This is but a natural progression considering that during last April's US Master Golf, IBM's Watson already automated the creation of highlight reels of the tournament.
