Streaming Tech Sweden is an annual conference which prides itself on excellence and independence. Without sponsors, they are free to pick the best and the most relevant speakers working on at the cutting edge of video streaming. The talks from Streaming Tech Sweden 17 are free to watch, but those from 2018 are available for attendees only. Later in 2019, they will become free, but until then, this is a short opportunity to watch these two great talks in order to mark International Women’s Day 2019. Registration with the site is free.

The second talk available from Streaming Tech Sweden 2018 is from Codemill’s Johana Björklund talking about contextual marketing and ad personalisation. Johana explains how the ads work, how GDPR has changed the way personalisation is carried out and how video metadata is used to find pre-roll and post-roll ads.

Webinar: Women in Technology: Now and in the Future

Date: Wednesday 27th February 2019
12:30 PM EST / 9:30 AM PST / 17:30 GMT

Ofcom recently surveyed the 5 main UK broadcasters and found that women held only 25% of technical roles and so the report shines more light on a problem we all live with in this and many other industries. Pleasingly there are noticeable and increasing steps of late to actively counter the gender imbalance when it comes to workplace diversity.

More can always be done, but recent, successful, steps by IBC to even out male/female representation in the conference speakers is one example of taking concrete steps to ensure that the women who are in the industry are heard and seen. Fortunately IBC is not alone in this and many trade shows across industries have taken positive steps and, at the very least, included Women in Technology sessions in their agenda.

This webcast brought to you by SMPTE and SID, the Society for Information Display, looks at:
• Why Women in Technology activities are becoming more important in the high tech industry;
• How the display industry does in terms of diversity;
• What is next for the industry and how can women contribute to its success.
