Deploying component-based workflows: experiences from the front-line

We are hosting a session at the IBC conference this year:

Deploying component-based workflows: experiences from the front-line
12:30-14:00 PM on Saturday 15 September 2018 in the Emerald room

The content landscape is shifting, with an ever-expanding essence and metadata repertoire, viewing experiences, global content platforms and automated workflows. Component-based workflows and formats, such as the Interoperable Master Format (IMF) standard, are being deployed to meet the challenges brought by this shift. Come and join us for a first-hand account from those on the front-lines.
