STADIEM Highlights from EBU’s Production Technology and Data Technology Seminars

Before the STADIEM Open Call 2 scale-ups selected for the Pilot phase hit the road for the dedicated event tour, the programme and its beneficiaries had the opportunity to shine through the participation to two major media ecosystem events organised annually by STADIEM partner EBU, which also enticed our own side showcase and networking event.

The Production Technology Seminar and the STADIEM Side Event

We kicked off our year in Geneva with this hybrid event, counting over 250 attendees (136 of which on site), at an edition that focused on technologies and trends that are redefining the nature and quality of modern media experiences, and the tools and workflows to produce them. As networking and on-site demonstrations are integral part of PTS, we organised a side event reception at the end of the first day (January 24), for all registered attendees. The reception served first of all as a great platform to present STADIEM and its relevance in Europe as the first pan-European accelerator dedicated to the media sector – the achievements so far in terms of projects and impact for corporates and scale-ups and its start-up-to-corporate supplier program – engaging the audience via the distribution of a “STADIEM Facts” postcard linking to a survey, to collect their take and feedback on our work. This was followed by a networking space, for a further discussion opportunity.

Taking place just a few months after (21-23 March), the Data Technology Seminar saw us returning to Switzerland with three of our Open Call 2 scale-ups – Limecraft, Media Distillery and BotTalk – presenting their solutions and the work conducted with their respective corporate partners in the exhibition area of the event. The DTS is a regular meeting point for data technology professionals in media, discussing any data-related specificity in the field, from metadata to AI; now also held in hybrid format, it attracted 221 attendees, with an on-site presence of 96.
