It’s that time of year again…It’s on everybody’s minds, and not one industry magazine can be opened without mention of its name. You guessed it, it’s nearly time for IBC Show 2017. As always, we’re never really sure if that’s a good or a bad thing. But every year we leave the RAI with a feeling of accomplishment and lots of exciting coals in the fire!
IBC is a massive event in most of our clients’ calendars, so the office is always abuzz with talk of launches, announcements, partnerships and so on. This year, our accommodation takes the form of a house boat. When in Amsterdam, of course!
At stand 14.E14, Accedo will be launching Accedo One™, the first cloud platform to grow and transform the video experience. It is a restructured portfolio of products and tools which puts operators, broadcasters and brands in control of how they build, manage and deploy high-quality, engaging video experiences. Accedo will also be demonstrating its latest innovations in VR (more information to follow) and showcasing Magenta Musik 360, a VR music concert experience developed with Telekom in Germany.
Cantemo, the media management specialist, will be demonstrating the latest updates to its solution, Portal 3.2 at booth 7.K01t. Search functionalities have been much improved and enhanced, increasing efficiency and simplifying the user experience. Cantemo will also be demonstrating iconik, its yet-to-be-released hybrid cloud platform.
We also have the experts in object storage attending IBC this year, Object Matrix! Head to stand 6.C28u for a demo of the latest version of its Process in Place solution as well as to hear about the newly developed Management API. Object Matrix is also offering Disaster Recovery for Free at IBC. The ‘DR for free’ deal will allow new customers to receive a free MatrixStore digital content governance and object storage platform with the purchase of two petabytes of MatrixStore storage.
Stand 7.J38u will host the pioneering IP specialists, Open Broadcast Systems. Visitors to its stand will see a demo of its high-density Integrated Receiver Decoder (completely software based and capable of handling 16 channels at one time), and a demonstration of remote production, requiring of broadcasters only a camera and one single connection in the field, as production and selection of camera feeds are done in the studio. It will also be demonstrating brand new IP contribution solutions for e-gaming and digital cinema.
Last, but most definitely not least, Martin Coleman of the Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) will be leading several masterclasses over the course of IBC, focusing on Carrier ID and its role in solving interference. Any US broadcasters looking to prepare for the FCC ruling on video transmissions should consider attending. Register here. IRG will also be hosting a champagne reception at 4pm on Saturday the 16th at booth 1.A33.
And of course, the Radical Moves PR team will be there and always happy to meet for a cup of tea and a chat! Get in touch if you would like to schedule a meeting with us or any of our clients.
