This year’s show promises to cover the industry's hottest topics, from cyber security to blockchain, and from 5G to VR. Leading experts from companies such as Sky, 21st Century Fox and Microsoft will address IBC attendees.
There are a number of free-to-attend features available throughout the exhibition, including the IBC Future Zone, which this year focuses on multi-sensory virtual worlds and imagery of the future. Also free are more than 90 sessions in the IBC IP Showcase and the IBC Content Everywhere Hub Theatre, which explores the content everywhere revolution.
A visit to the IP Showcase at IBC2017 will confirm that realtime IP for production, playout and contribution is a practical, flexible, efficient reality that is rapidly taking hold in mainstream broadcast operations.
The IBC Content Everywhere Hub Program will present two hour-long sessions and panel discussions each day looking at consumer behaviours, business models and technologies that drive the growth of content engagement over connected devices.
The Hub will also showcase a series of short demonstrations exhibiting the latest products and services that are shaping the development of new connected technologies, and looking at their effect on traditional broadcast media.
