Netflix has famously moved in to original content but less-known are its innovations behind the scenes in production workflows.
Eric Reinecke looks at the challenges in moving media and finding ways to correctly pick and choose the right media to move. He looks at the different ways of moving editorial data: the venerable EDL, Avid’s more recent AAF and Final Cut’s XML talking about the pros and cons of them all.
The talk then moves on to OpenTimelineIO which is an API and interchange format for editorial cut information which was designed to help departments in animation studios to work together. Hosted by Pixar, companies like Netflix are finding uses for the API outside of animation and Eric shows demos of how he’s using it within Netflix then ends with a call to get involved!
At The Broadcast Knowledge, we’re continuing to cut through the hype and get to the bottom of blockchain. Now part of the NAB drinking game along with words like AI and 5G, it’s similarly not going away. The principle of blockchain is useful – just not useful everywhere.
So what can broadcasters do with Blockchain, and – given this is a SMPTE talk – what can film studios do with it? It’s doubtless that blockchain really makes secure, trusted systems possible so the mind immediately jumps to using it to ensure all the files needed to create films are distributed securely and with an audit trail.
Here, Steve Wong looks at this but explores the new possibilities this creates. He starts with the basics on what blockchain is and how it works, but soon moves in to how this could work for Hollywood explaining what could exist and what already does.

Three case studies from a post-production facility and two broadcasters provide the basis for a discussion about the adoption of cloud-based services and tools.
According to a recent IABM survey, some 85% of broadcast industry buyers plan to deploy cloud technology in the next three years.
Through a series of early adopter case studies, IBC365 will examine how vendors and technology suppliers have responded to this demand, whilst also looking at the changes broadcast and media businesses need to make in order to derive maximum benefit from the cloud.
