Broadcaster and Streaming services are all fighting to get the viewers attention. Almost all broadcast and streaming services offer viewers with the same one size fits all solution, from Live events and this has led to viewers fatigue and disengagement of the viewers from the live broadcasts. Research figures confirm this disengagement by showing that more viewers are using a second screen for relevant information on the event while watching the Live broadcast on TV. This means that while broadcasters pay millions of dollars to buy rights to Live sporting events, their audience is not fully engaged and is spending time on other platforms. This leads to revenue erosion for the broadcaster/streaming service. In this presentation, Christof Haslauer from NativeWaves will talk about how new immersive viewing experiences can be created and delivered without making any major changes to existing workflows to grab the viewer's attention, opening new revenue generating opportunities for broadcasters and streaming services.
