Incubator workshop Basingstoke 8-Aug-17.

Agile Media


The media industry is going through a period of rapid change, which shows no sign of slowing down.  The use of cloud-based services and storage for acquisition, management and delivery of content promises to offer great flexibility, without the need for traditional investment in specialised media devices.  There is currently no quick or easy way to achieve this using open standards or specifications, and careful planning is required to deliver against end users’ needs.


Work in this area could become a new technical initiative for the AMWA (and other JT-NM partners) but all projects require solid business justification and support before proceeding.  Consequently the AMWA is researching the level of interest across our end user community before deciding the way forwards.  To that end, there is a short online questionnaire, which we invite end users and their service providers to complete.


Apart from the details of the person completing it, there are only four simple questions about your future planning.


Given in the fall of 2019, this presentation provides the chance to learn about steps towards Agile Media Workflows.

To ensure that everyone has the same understanding of our goals and how the project would move forward, in the 45 minutes we cover the following topics:-

  1. Brief overview of the AMWA; What we are and what we do.

  2. Why business agility and agile workflows are a hot topic.

  3. What we mean by “agile”, “cloud” and “COTS” in this context.

  4. Further industry reading on this subject.

  5. AMWA projects and processes / how we work.

  6. Conditions to join this project.

  7. The next step - discovering and analysing end user’s most urgent needs.
