IBC 2014: IBC delegates will be able to keep up with the Amsterdam trade show’s keynote sessions via a new online TV service.

The web channel will take the place of the daily 20-minute morning magazine programme that has been broadcast at IBC since 1996.

Keynote speakers at IBC include Channel 4 chief executive David Abraham and Imagine Communications chief executive Charlie Vogt, who will take part in the ‘Assessing the health of broadcast TV’ discussion.

Meanwhile, Google Europe president Matt Brittin will assess the impact of future technology while vice president of the European Commission Neelie Kroes will also deliver a keynote address.

The new 24/7 channel will be available from Thursday 11 September to the close of the exhibition on Tuesday 16 September, will also be shown on 26 screens around the RAI exhibition complex.

IBC show organisers added that much of the IBC TV output, including all recorded sessions from the conference and show-floor theatres, will be made available as video-on-demand content.

EVS’s new XStore Production shared storage platform will sit at the heart of the workflow, giving multiple editors instant access to content. 

XS media servers will be used for ingest and playout of news feeds, including live studio interviews, as well as playout to all digital screens.

Multiple ENG crews will upload content shot on Sony XDCam devices using EVS Xedio Dispatcher for instant availability on the XS server and XStore for editing with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, programme insertion and playout.

The integrated system encompasses EVS solutions for content management, production, quick-turnaround editing, playout and distribution, including IPDirector, XStore Production, Xedio CleanEdit, Xsquare and IPLink for Adobe.

“Our deployment for IBC TV this year is an excellent illustration of EVS’ integrated news workflow and the versatility it can provide,” said EVS senior vice president marketing Nicolas Bourdon.

“The convergence of broadcast and broadband distribution is on everyone’s mind right now. There’s no better venue to put these multimedia tools and techniques into practice than IBC.”
