IBC 2018: Fortium Sets Cybersecurity Panel; Veritone’s aiWARE Center Stage (CDSA)


At this week’s IBC Show, Fortium will host the Sept. 13 panel “Risk, Resilience and Reputation: Being Cyber Secure Across Your Entire Organization,” as part of the show’s Cyber Security Forum. Fortium’s COO Ceri Coburn will lead the discussion, which includes Edna Conway, CSO, global value chain for Cisco; Mohamed Abuagla, former CIO/CTO for Al Jazeera Media Network; and Adde, CTO of Sveriges (SVT) of Sweden.

“The Cyber Forum at last year’s IBC Show was a fantastic event,” Coburn said. “Threats are always growing; this event gives us an opportunity to hear from leaders within entertainment and broadcasting about how important it is to remain vigilant.”

Also at IBC:

• Veritone will showcase the latest with its media and entertainment operating system for artificial intelligence, aiWARE, and will share how the offering allows companies to better monetize archived content, index and enrich the metadata of archived content for real-time search and discovery, and better understand audience engagement across linear live broadcast, digital stream, and on-demand web content.

Veritone will be located in Hall 5 – Stand No. A09 at the show.

• Coming into IBC, Prime Focus Technologies announced it will launch CLEAR Vision Cloud at the show, a new module of PFT’s CLEAR Media ERP Suite that serves as a native media recognition artificial intelligence (AI) platform.

CLEAR Vision Cloud tags content for advanced free text intelligent search, has a rich feature set based on Natural Language Processing (NLP), fuzzy logic, and Thesaurus, and can be used to search digital media and extract relevant content for multiple use cases.

“We’ve built CLEAR Vision Cloud around our very own methodology that we are calling the AI Machine Learning (AI/ML) triangle.” said Ramki Sankaranarayanan, founder and global CEO of PFT. “It combines best-in-class intelligence that is accurate and a software to address specific business use cases in a more meaningful way. With this launch, we’re now able to extract wisdom from intelligence coupled with a power-packed software with the right tools that provide precise actions to help drive business outcomes.”

PFT will be showcasing its pioneering CLEAR Vision Cloud at stand No. 7.C05.
