About the

BroadcastPro Tech Webinar

The broadcast industry has witnessed significant change in recent times with the entertainment experience continuously adapting to accommodate new and changing viewership behaviour, and technologies going through a parallel recalibration and advancement to keep pace with market needs.

The BroadcastPro Tech Webinar serves as a platform to monitor and explore these shifts, and better understand how the industry is re-evaluating its strategies to meet growing market demands. The digital transformation journey continues to be on the agenda of several corporate organisations with cloud, IP, remote production and other technologies getting the attention that is due to them. Industry professionals will discuss the market status quo, the challenges they face, the strategies in place and where we are headed.



The BroadcastPro Tech Webinar will be streamed live on 27 July 2023.



The virtual conference will look at technologies that will enable the industry to deliver a more efficient entertainment experience over multiple platforms. It will examine advancements within OTT to ensure a more seamless service that keeps churn at bay, and we will hear from the gurus in the industry on new areas of both technical and commercial interest including the boom in free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) services.

There’s never been a more critical time to turn on, tune in and get the guidance you need to take well-informed action.



The last edition of the BroadcastPro Tech Summit saw the event hosted virtually, with over 1,750 industry professionals tune in over the two days.

Newsroom technologies

Evolving in the MENA marketplace

With several regional news channels having revamped their facilities in recent times and at least three news channels having launched in the last five months, we look at how storytelling has changed in newsrooms with the addition of VR, AR and mixed reality helping audiences get closer to the action.

IP integration

Is it a necessity?

With many companies in a state of technology debt, where they are struggling with legacy products and processes brought on by building on layers of proprietary equipment over the years, the transition to IP brings them to one central question – where do we begin and how do we make it happen without breaking the bank? Experts will attempt to demystify areas that continue to confound engineering teams and perhaps offer new perspectives to ease the journey to IP.

Cloud migration

Where do we stand?

There is no doubt that companies need to embrace cloud in some aspects of their workflow but how do we address migration, connectivity, budget, integration and interoperability? Industry practitioners will discuss best practices to accelerate cloud adoption.

It’s being rolled out pretty fast
