  9. 9. 9<br />User Expectations<br /><ul><li>“Configurable” Content
  10. 10. Scalable content served by multiple distribution channels
  11. 11. Hybrid formats complementaryusing multiple distribution channels
  12. 12. Value added applications (EPG, Favorites, MyChannel,…) relie on variousmetadata sources
  13. 13. Online offeringischaracterised by personalisation</li></li></ul><li>10<br />
  14. 14. Future television Production – Solution Space<br /><ul><li>Assessements
  15. 15. Concurrent Engineering (Collaborative production) increases productivity
  16. 16. Modular production apparatus enables a configurable product
  17. 17. A Digital Supply Chain Manager should ensure overall consistency and performance
  18. 18. Individual Media Asset Management systems don’t match this requirement
  19. 19. Ad hoc plumbing (“best of breed”) compromises stability and quality of the product</li></ul>Supply Chain Engine<br />More, better and structuredmetadatawillenable an evolutionfrombare application integration to information integration and supplychain optimisation.<br />11<br />
  20. 20. SOA - Some Overstretched Assumptions<br /><ul><li>An SOA may “provide the ability to manage the complexity” but it usually increases it;
  21. 21. It is not true that an “ESB should replace all application specific interfaces by an general purpose abstract interface”. It should implement some major interfaces without further custom development (NewsML-G2, TVAnytime, Mpeg7,…);
  22. 22. It is assumed that “the SOA and the ESB simplify your service portfolio” (e.g. a single video transcoder), but this may lead to massive overconsumption of IT infrastructure(!);
  23. 23. A Service Oriented Architecture is only part of the solution:
  24. 24. Stability and performance
  25. 25. Intellectual Property Management
  26. 26. Routing and resource scheduling
  27. 27. …</li></ul>Supply Chain Engine<br />More, better and structuredmetadatawillenable an evolutionfrombare application integration to information integration and supplychain optimisation.<br />12<br />

  42. 42. The notion of a configurable productenableshybrid formats and personalisation
  43. 43. Theserequire concurrent engineering and(!) collaborative production
  44. 44. Value added services for the consumer relie on more and bettermetadata as well
  45. 45. State-of-the-Art
  46. 46. The lack of metadataunderstandinginhibits collaborative production
  47. 47. MAM Systems as such are not scalable in terms of implementing new services
  48. 48. « Best-of-breed » approach has lead to plumber’s architecture
  49. 49. Conclusions
  50. 50. Collaborative production willbe a processimplemented by a distributedenvironment of equal and collaborative components;
  51. 51. NextgenerationMedia Asset Management willbebased on information integration as opposed to application integration and the result of consistent and sound system engineering;
  52. 52. Whilesemantic technologies (web 3.0) may help to harvestunstructured information and to processnaturallanguage-based sources, model-drivendevelopment and structuredmeta-data are a criticalsucces factor for successfullydeployingComputer IntegratedManufacturing.</li></li></ul><li>23<br /><br /><br /><br />
