TVX in Industry
This year, the TVX-in-Industry programme will take place on the third day of the conference, Friday 7th June, as part of an innovative bazaar event at BBC Quay House. We are looking for stand-out presentations which will help to provoke discussion, networking and collaboration amongst conference delegates throughout the day. We would like to showcase significant advances in research and development, technologies and real-world experiences that have industrial applicability. Contributions concerning business cases, marketing and market insights, case studies, best practices and lessons learned are also welcome. In this regard, your participation in the TVX-in-Industry would be an ideal opportunity to demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to research and innovation. TVX-in-Industry offers proven opportunities for your organisation to make hundreds of delegates aware of your commitment.
We welcome interesting submissions on all relevant topics and have provided the following non-exhaustive list for inspiration:
- Artificial Intelligence & Big Data: The use of Big Data, AI, Deep Learning and Machine Learning approaches to increase the value of content and experiences.
- Social computing: The application of social technologies, IoT, social media and connected viewing to media production and consumption.
- Immersive experiences: Explorations of extended reality (VR, AR, MR, etc), UHD TV, novel forms of content production and content consumption.
- User experience & interaction design: How and why people consume and interact with online video and TV and with each other, and how their quality of experience can be determined.
- Content production: Content production paradigms including cross-platform services, interactive and transmedia storytelling, personalisation and immersive media production.
- Live broadcasting: Technology and services which support the capture, processing and contribution of content which is broadcast live.
- Delivery systems & infrastructures: The architecture, design, deployment, and evaluation of systems and infrastructures that support the delivery of TV and online video, including the transmission and synchronisation of media.
- Devices & interaction techniques: The design, architecture, usage and evaluation of devices and interaction techniques that enable a connected ecosystem of devices and create valuable new capabilities for TV and online video..
- Business models & marketing: Novel business models and marketing strategies for the new media landscape of TV and online video (such as OTT services).
- Innovative concepts & media art: Innovative design strategies, new concepts, and prototype experiences for TV and online video, including case studies, media artworks and performances.
We are particularly keen to receive submissions relating to industry applications of object-based media*. This innovation is a ‘hot topic’ which is starting to impact the media industry and will be discussed and demonstrated within the bazaar.
* Object based media – also known object-based broadcasting or adaptive, responsive, perceptive and personalised media. For examples, please see https://www.bbc.co.uk/rd/object-based-media.
All submissions should be 6-10 slides long, submitted in the PowerPoint format and formatted using the TVX-in-Industry submission template available at the submission templates page. Please do not change the template and keep fonts and font sizes as prepared in the template. Submissions are not anonymous and should include all author names, affiliations, and contact information.
Your submission must include the following sections:
- Title page
- Company Introduction
- The Problem & Current Solutions (define the real problem/need you’re solving, and for who), the broad topic you are addressing
- The Challenge (practical issues associated with your relevant topic)
- Product/Service (what you did)
- Contributions & What’s next: what it means, how others might use the findings, implications for practice
We encourage, but do not require, authors to use video to help tell the story. In doing exploratory or innovative practical work, things do not always go to plan. You may augment the presentation with additional material including videos or exhibit booth during the conference days.
At this stage, we would encourage PowerPoint submissions to be kept succinct and help us to understand what you would like to present, rather than providing the whole presentation itself. If successful, you will have the opportunity to prepare a richer set of content for the event and we will provide format guidelines and offer suggestions on how to maximise its impact.
After the Conference
Your accepted presentation slides will be published in the conference adjunct proceedings (Figshare), not indexed in the ACM Digital Library. At least one author must register to attend the conference to give this presentation.
