Big Challenges for Broadcasters

Submitted by admin on Wed, 05/27/2015 - 10:52

Dato’ Sri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, Minister of Communications and Multimedia of Malaysia, raised the possibility that  viewers might stop watching TV in the traditional sense unless broadcasters dealt seriously with new trends impacting their industry, among them; the rising popularity of over-the-top or OTT services, the reach and influence of  social media, and evolving media consumption behaviour.

Day 2 - Tuesday, 27th May 2015

1615 - 1730 : CEO Roundtable : Should Broadcasting Compete or Collaborate?

Broadcasting has dominated the communication industry, performing such roles as informing, educating, entertaining, and influencing opinion. Social media and emerging media share these roles. Consequently, they are pulling eyeballs away from television. Is broadcasting in a collision course with social media and to what extent? Should it consider social media competition in content creation, audience engagement and revenue generation? If so, how should broadcasters deal with this new player? Or should it collaborate as both platforms can provide what each other needs and influence people’s lives and routines? How far will collaborative strategies pay off for years to come? Should broadcasting embrace the power of social media to meet its business and civic obligations? Should both compete or collaborate?

Day 2 - Tuesday, 27th May 2015

1400 - 1530 : Parallel Session 4 : New Approaches to Deal with Emergency Situations

Social media has become an integral part of disaster education, response and rehabilitation. It can contribute to public awareness as an emergency unfolds, help locate loved ones and notify and alert authorities, and co-ordinate response, recovery and volunteer efforts. It can support rumour management and correction of misinformation. How can broadcasters tap social media tools and manage their risks during emergencies? How do we deal with the risks? What are some best practices in planning for social media use before a disaster occurs, using popular and relevant social media tools, localising disasters in social media use, and in utilising mapping efforts?

Day 2 - Tuesday, 27th May 2015

1400 - 1530 : Parallel Session 3 : Creative Content to Enrich Stories & Connect with Audiences

Broadcast organisations now have more access to content. Social media users participate in content creation and influence the type and nature of content. Some content are excellent; others full of abuse and spam. What is critical is to leverage social media to take advantage of compelling content and a rich variety of information sources. How is the creative industry dealing with new sources of content? What social media content is effective to enrich stories, connect with target markets and meet the viewers’ needs? With social media, how can broadcasters enhance various genres of programmes and collaborate in producing high-quality content and enhancing interactivity? What is the best time to post content to social networks?

Day 2 - Tuesday, 27th May 2015

1100 - 1230 : Plenary Session 4 : Making Sense of Big Data and Social Data

We encounter so much information that is diverse and growing faster day by day. This big data is migrating to all types of human endeavour, demanding that we see and understand the relations within and among pieces of information and what one can do with it. Big data has become a significant corporate asset and economic input to fuel the information economy. Social media is streaming big data that is appropriate for real time analysis and for communicating information about rapidly changing situations. Social data is mostly non-curated and its reliability varies substantially. What new insights can broadcasters glean from big data and social data? How can broadcasters sift and analyse them to improve content, viewer engagement and operational efficiencies? What analytic tools are useful and effective to drive the value obtained from big data and social data throughout the organisation?

Day 2 - Tuesday, 27th May 2015

0900 - 1030 : Plenary Session 3 : Defining and Implementing Legal and Regulatory Guidelines

As social media grows explosively, lawmakers and regulators grapple with important legal and regulatory issues to keep pace with the speed and impact of change. Guidelines to maximise social media’s benefits and protect the public and other stakeholders from its risks are critical. Broadcasters face a similar challenge as they increasingly use social media to inform, educate and influence their audiences and other stakeholders. What regulatory guidelines should be in place to handle the right to privacy, data protection, freedom of information, copyright infringement, and employee rights, among others? Should broadcast organisations do more self-regulation that will need a solid social media policy or should they prepare for more government regulation and stricter enforcement?

AMS 2015 : Moderated Debate

Day 1 - Tuesday, 26th May 2015

1615 - 1730 : Moderated Debate : Journalism, Ethics and Social Media

With the advent of social media, a new breed of journalists is emerging. In blogs and micro blogs, social networking sites and in multimedia content sharing services, these ‘new’ journalists contribute, disseminate and share information. They have also performed news gathering and gatekeeping functions that mainstream media journalists have traditionally carried out. Are mainstream media’s rights, privileges and principles such as truth seeking and independent reporting threatened by the ‘new’ journalists? Are citizen journalists making news more or less accurate? Do we need to reinvent a code of media ethics from the ground up? How do we deal with new values such as transparency over objectivity? How should we treat unfiltered sharing of information over a filtered verification of the facts? What are the best forms of practice, and the norms to guide journalists?
