What industry challenges will next year's Accelerators take on? 

The IBC Accelerator Innovation Programme has, since its inception in 2019, reflected key emerging themes and challenges within the broad media & entertainment eco-system.

The IBC Accelerator Kickstart day is an opportunity to get involved and learn more about the programme – a framework to support fast-track collaboration and innovation, identifying, addressing and solving business and technology challenges in a matter of months.

Submissions for projects can focus on any area of the industry’s big picture transformation or in specific areas, such as:

  • 5G and Connectivity
  • Cloud and Virtualisation
  • IP Transport & Networking
  • AI/ML, Content Security, Blockchain
  • Sustainability
  • Ad-Tech
  • Remote Production
  • Metaverse/Web3
  • Immersive/XR technologies

Only 8 projects will be selected to be a part of the programme and present their final POC results at IBC2023 in September and your voice counts!
