With change as the new constant, there’s never been a more important time to create a greater impact.
With change as the new constant, there’s never been a more important time to create a greater impact. As a diverse home across engineering and technology, we share knowledge that helps make better sense of the world in order to solve the challenges that matter.
It’s why we are uniquely placed to champion engineering, and why we’re thrilled to work with other IBC partners to continually evolve the world’s most influential media, entertainment and technology show.
Future Trends Theatre in the Future Zone
The IET Media Technical Network will be running several panels about ‘The End of Broadcast?’ in the Future Trends Theatre in the Future Zone 13th September from 14:00.
Open to all visitors to IBC, the IABM Future Trends Theatre hosts a packed programme of presentations that explore up-and-coming technology and business trends and how they will segue from today’s environment.
They are designed to give attendees an understanding of how new technologies can enable business plans now, rather than being dismissed as way-out ideas and possible hype waiting to find practical use cases. These run daily throughout the show.
The Theatre sits within the Future Zone, which brings together the very latest ideas, innovations and concept technologies from international industry and academia, and showcases them in a single specially-curated area on the IBC show floor.

Where can NDI and SMPTE ST 2110 co-exist?

What are the practical limits of NDI? And whether VizRT’s purchase of Newtek – the creator of NDI – see a new era of adoption and use within broadcast. These questions and more from a panel of industry experts.
Platform wars – the deaggregation and reaggregation of content
4.00pm – 4.45pm

With participation from Colin Dixon of nScreenmedia and Brian Paxton of Kingsmead Security, plus others.
