From Television
to Total Video

As broadcasters transform to TV and online video services providers, they increasingly leverage software and data to engage with their customers, enhance their products, optimize their operations, and empower their employees. In this environment, with its Intelligent Cloud, Microsoft is uniquely positioned to help broadcasters gain competitive advantages.

February 28, 2018


Join us in Brussels on February 28 for a full-day Executive Briefing to explore how Microsoft can help power your digital transformation – the path from vision to execution, from new business models to technology enablers, from on-premise to Cloud, from data privacy regulations to data-driven business.

We will share Microsoft’s point of view on the digital transformation in broadcasting, provide an overview of our solutions portfolio for cloud-based content production and distribution, audience insights and engagement, and discuss the implications of security and privacy considerations for your business.

In these invitation-only Executive Briefings, we will also invite customers to discuss their experiences, and have partners like Avid, Adobe, and Imagine Communications present their solutions based on the Microsoft Cloud. Together with you, we will create the opportunity for dialogue amongst industry leaders.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Microsoft EBC in Brussels as we seek to ‘Empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more!'
