Rowan de Pomerai leads the technology strategy and delivery for the Digital Production Partnership (DPP), the media industry’s business network, where customers and suppliers come together to solve problems and create opportunities. He has an MEng in Electronic Engineering with Media Technology from the University of York, and a strong background in media innovation, having started his career at BBC Research & Development. Since then, he has delivered transformative change for major international broadcasters and producers, including the BBC’s Automated QC solutions, and Production Modernisation for ITV Studios.
Together with Tania Rechert-Facilides and Tim Greve, he will discuss “The Tech Dilemma: How German Productions can use Tech for Success” on the Entertainment Stage of MediaTech Hub Conference 2021. These three questions he has answered in preparation:
Where do you see the biggest opportunities for MediaTech in your sector?
It’s hard to over-state transformation of our industry to one that is software defined. Yes, it enables remote working and location agnosticism. But it also enables greater flexibility, greater market opportunity, and greater speed of improvement than ever before.
Do you have any intriguing MediaTech insights that you want to share with us?
The barriers to entry are lower than they’ve ever been for creating and distributing media. But the need for incredible storytelling is just as strong as ever. Technology is creating new opportunities for creators to form direct relationships with consumers; but ultimately technology does not ever change the need for great stories.
