The broadcast industry is characterized by innovation and disruption. On the one hand, the moves from SD to HD through 3-D TV and ultra-HD are hot industry topics, particularly ultra HD which is causing a great deal of excitement. However, with new business models emerging, and companies like NetFlix trying to make an impact in the broadcasting space, the challenge for traditional broadcasters is to stay relevant, as well as provide content in a multitude of formats across an ever expanding array of devices. This roundtable will talk about where broadcasting is going and also where satellite fits in this new exciting video landscape.
