ISE keynotes: America’s Cup’s Nuttall, Epic Games’ Johannessen, InnoQuotient’s Chuan

Stephen Nuttall

A trio of keynote addresses will see Stephen Nuttall (pictured) addressing the challenges of live broadcasting the America’s Cup; BK Johannessen exploring content creation in the systems integration ecosystem; and Fran Chuan assessing how innovative the AV industry is.

All three ISE 2023 keynotes feature language support from KUDO AI. Using the KUDO app and their personal headphones or earbuds, attendees can hear simultaneous translation in Spanish, Portuguese, French or German.

At 17:30 on Tuesday 31 January, BK Johannessen, Unreal Engine business director for broadcast and live events at Epic Games, will deliver a keynote entitled ‘All Paths Lead to Real-Time’. He will discuss how content creators are taking innovations from the games industry and applying them to their projects, from cutting-edge broadcast virtual production studios to real-time graphics for media & entertainment, live events, architecture and more.

During the session, taking place in Conference Suite CC4.1, Johannessen will share examples and inspiration from different industries that have adopted Unreal Engine, while digging deeper into the benefits of real time and looking at the resources available to achieve this.

“ISE is an amazing venue for Unreal Engine and Epic Games because it covers so many different verticals, all of which have relevance,” explained Johannessen. “There is a need for real time – it benefits every industry, whether or not you are using advantages such as introducing interactivity in an experience. You can also benefit within a traditional content production pipeline where real time offers much faster rendering times, and much more opportunity to iterate and collaborate.”

On Wednesday 1 February, America’s Cup head of television Stephen Nuttall will share how the team behind this spectacular event tackles planning, filming, editing, broadcasting live and more from the moving surface of the sea, in unpredictable, often harsh weather conditions. Discover how the stringent requirements for accuracy in all elements of racing are met, from the various sensors and imaging systems to precise measurements for the umpires. He will also shed light on the innovative technologies and the collaborative effort involved in broadcasting the finest sailing competition in the world to a global audience.

This session takes place at 17:30 in Conference Suite CC5.1.

The final keynote of ISE 2023 sees Fran Chuan, CEO and co-creator of culture innovation assessment platform InnoQuotient, take to the stage in Conference Suite CC4.1 at 17:15 on Thursday 2 February.

In ‘How Innovative is the AV Industry?’ Chuan will present InnoQuotient survey results collated from registered visitors and exhibitors in the lead-up to the show. 

The survey endeavours to find out more about the innovative culture of organisations by measuring the maturity of development of their innovation journey, pinpointing strengths, as well as identifying any gaps to then provide guidance on building and improving an organisation’s culture of innovation.

“We are very excited about this initiative, both capturing data from attendees and sharing the conclusions with participants. For me, to participate as keynote speaker at ISE 2023 is a great honour. I’m looking forward to sharing the findings on the differences between innovation and innovation culture, as well as presenting the data InnoQuotient has collated from the AV sector. I’ll be sharing my insights, along with some tips and tricks, to help accelerate the sector towards a culture of innovation,” commented Chuan.

All three keynotes are open to all ISE attendees and are free to attend.
