IBC and TVBEurope reveal new conference partnership

IBC has announced a new broadcast technology event for engineers, as Audio Pro International sister title TVBEurope partners with IBC on events for 2013.

The IBC London Technology Booster takes place at Dexter House on June 25th to 26th 2013, and will focus primarily on Cloud Services and Connected Content.

“We have had a lot of feedback from vendors and buyers who see great value in the IBC Conference, but are unable to attend as their priorities lie primarily with the exhibition," said Professor David Crawford, chair of the IBC London Technology Booster. "Many see great opportunities arising with the convergence of services and technologies in the Cloud, and with new technologies for connecting content to consumers, but are unable to keep up with the fast pace of change."

"We have created the IBC London Technology Booster to overcome this difficulty. New attendees to this event will experience an informative and interactive approach to these topics, and regular IBC Amsterdam Conference delegates will find this a crucial technology booster in the run up to IBC 2013.”

Expert speakers include Bob Harris, CTO of Channel 4; John Honeycutt, EVP and COO of Discovery Networks International; Professor Ed Candy, CTO, 3 Group; and John Zubrzycki, principal technologist, R&D at the BBC.

TVBEurope is a media partner for the event and in turn IBC has pledged its support for TVBEurope’s Beyond HD Masters and IT Broadcast Workflow conferences in 2013. Both events take place at London’s BAFTA, with Beyond HD Masters taking place on June 11th 2013, followed by IT Broadcast Workflow on July 9th.

Beyond HD Masters follows the successful series of HD and 3D Masters conferences from TVBEurope that helped to chart and forecast the maturation of HD and 3D in the broadcast market.

In its fifth year, IT Broadcast Workflow is dedicated to change management, greater operational efficiency, multiple platform delivery and business process management improvement in television broadcasting.

Delegate places are now open for both conferences. Sponsorship opportunities are also available through Steve.Connolly@intentmedia.co.uk or Ben.Ewles@intentmedia.co.uk on +44 (0) 207 354 6000.
