Frédéric Guillanneuf, Head of HDR business development, Philips

Ultra-high definition (UHD) video is defined not only by higher resolution but also by a range of characteristics that include higher dynamic range and a wider color gamut. Anyone involved with content delivery -- MVPDs, OTT providers, CDNs, etc. — has new challenges ahead of them to accommodate this new content and support a new set of specifications and standards. This webinar will explain these characteristics and associated standards, challenges in distribution efficiency and how it affects content distributors.



 

Brian Santo, Senior editor, Test & Measurement / Components, Light Reading
Santo joined Light Reading on September 14, 2015, with a mission to turn the test & measurement and components sectors upside down and then see what falls out, photograph the debris and then write about it in a manner befitting his vast experience. That experience includes more than nine years at video and broadband industry publication CED, where he was editor-in-chief until May 2015. He previously worked as an analyst at SNL Kagan, as Technology Editor of Cable World and held various editorial roles at Electronic Engineering Times, IEEE Spectrum and Electronic News. Santo has also made and sold bedroom furniture, which is not directly relevant to his role at Light Reading but which has already earned him the nickname 'Cribmaster.'

Live Digital Audio

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
