Key topics include:

- The need for broadcasters' investment in technology to change from a fixed-cost model to a variable-cost model, in order to keep with a fast-changing competitive landscape and take advantage of ongoing development in the IT world.
- How broadcasters weigh the additional investment in HD news production versus the ongoing benefits of cost-saving technologies such as template-based graphics, newsroom automation and file-based collaborative editing.
