NEW this year, the event will be colocated with DECE. Tuesday 13 June will be a day of shared content for APEX and DECE members and will feature a joint networking reception. **Details on this important collaboration are below. 

All day Wednesday 14 June and the morning of Thursday 15 June will feature content arranged by the APEX Technology Committee for APEX members. 

**So why the colocation with DECE?

With availability windows shrinking, the size of content sets increasing, and the degree of customization of content to each airline growing, the need for the IFE content delivery supply chain to establish workflows that are interoperable with other content markets, and to be part of a larger content delivery ecosystem, has never been more important. Even though the principles of Digital Asset Management (DAM) have taken decades to evolve, the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE)—originally formed to establish workflows and business models to support UltraViolet—has emerged as the leader in content delivery workflows utilizing interoperability and DAM. At the top of the Content Delivery Supply Chain is DECE’s Common Format that establishes the highest level of source material. Then the SMPTE Interoperable Master Format (IMF) established standards for mezzanine delivery. Movielabs’ MediaManifest provides a uniform way of identifying the assets of media files. DECE has brought all f these into a cooperative effort.
The APEX Technology Committee has established a collaborative working relationship with DECE that will see our current and future content delivery specifications for IFE aligned with Common Format.
Last year, DECE and APEX sponsored a day of collaborative exchange, and Day One of our next TECH will be devoted to this activity again to move our efforts forward. Supply chain experts from the major studios, Movielabs, and innovative supply chain companies will be participating in an open dialogue on the future of content delivery in IFE.
