Its focus is on identifying trends and exploiting the opportunities provided by new technologies and platforms not only to create and deliver content, but also to enhance interactivity. The FMG differentiates itself from other more technically focused groups not only by putting the spotlight on content, but also by including strategic and audience-related issues in its discussions. The FMG reflects the Media Strategy Unit's transversal approach by interacting with other digital media groups in the Media and Technical Departments. The Group maintains a close relationship with the Legal Department and MIS. The FMG will advise Media Strategy on the future development of the EBU Media Lab.

    The objectives of the Future Media Group are as follows:

    • to organise a Future Media Conference in 2014 involving senior executives in charge of New Media and Development in their respective organisations, as well as programme-makers, journalists and technology experts.
    • to commission studies and surveys if and when requested by Members
    • to organise ad-hoc workshops if and when requested by Members
    • to create a network of Future Media managers and to facilitate the exchange of relevant reports
    • to develop new ways of co-production and programme exchange within the EBU
    • to develop the Media Now platform into an online forum for a strategic conversation among members about content and technology issues

It aims to ensure initiatives of the highest quality that celebrate excellence and innovation, and to encourage pan-European collaboration whilst providing members with professional information.

    The delegates participating in the Access Services meeting will be discussing about future requirements for public broadcasters, and looking at strategic questions such as:

    • What are regulators planning and what does this mean for public broadcasters?
    • What is the EU Directive on audiovisual media and what are the implications in terms of national law?
    • In addition to subtitles and signed programs, what else can broadcasters do for the hearing-impaired and blind, or other special audiences?

    As linear programmes are increasingly accompanied by non-linear offers, there will also be a focus on this development to assist access services in keeping track.

    Imagine a TV that is an entertainment screen. Individual audience members and their friends and family are making and sharing some of the entertainment, such as family photos and video calls. Imagine a TV that presents viewers with interactive ads which are highly relevant to their lives and their interests. Imagine a TV, connected to the Internet, with an EPG that accurately recommends programming a viewer might like to watch - based on what it knows about them… and their friends!

    In this session, with social TV expert Colin Donald, we will look at the challenges and opportunities presented by social networks to the TV industry? What are the implications of social networking apps and socially-targeted advertising arriving on TV? What does this mean to programme-makers?

    The surprising rise and rise of conventional television. This is a session you will not want to miss

    Storytelling can change the world: a presentation by Chris Jordan, artist
    In our final presentation of the day, The Media Summit is proud to bring you world famous photographer, artist and activist Chris Jordan. An extraordinary speaker, Chris’ TED talk remains one of the most powerful and most-watched of all time. Chris is based in Seatlle, Washington, United States.

    His work explores the detritus of mass culture, from images of mountains of garbage to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina and his digitally-manipulated photographs depicting hundreds of thousands of cell phones, aluminum cans, plastic bottles and the like.

    In his newest project, Midway: Message from the Gyre, Chris has returned to traditional photography as well as video to document a richly symbolic environmental tragedy: the effect of consumerism on wildlife. His work draws us into the horrors of mass-consumerism, reminding us that the consequences of our unchecked growth extend to every corner of the globe.

    Chris is a brilliant storyteller who inspires and asks us to hold ourselves – our programmes, our audiences – responsible for changing and improving our world.

    As our day concluses...
    We end with an extremely powerful story from the environment, told by a master storyteller and artist. This presentation will ask us to think about vision for the world of the future -- as storytellers and programme-makers, yes, but also as human beings and responsible custodians of our planet. How will we tell the difficult stories?

    How will we write our future?
