Media Innovation Accelerator Projects, the Media-Telecom Catalysts

The worlds of media and telecoms are converging, OTT's like Netflix and Amazon are disrupting the entire media ecosystem, audience viewing platforms are fragmenting and the race is on to deploy immersive technologies. Making the most of this convergence requires brand new thinking to exploit the opportunities and new technology available and requires collaboration between the media and telecoms industries. 

IBC, with a vast community of international broadcast, media and entertainment organisations is collaborating with the TM Forum, which represents more than 850 global communication service providers and their suppliers. Together we are bringing TM Forum's highly successful collaborative Media-Telecom Catalysts programme to the converging media-telecoms value chain.

Showcasing everything from AI to 5G, and from news gathering to smart tourism, make sure you visit the Media-Telecoms Catalyst Zone in Hall 9, included in your IBC Exhibition Visitor Pass. See it differently. 




"We believe that if you unlock the capabilities of those two industries by getting them to collaborate we can actually get them to move the world forward faster, we can deliver better services, better quality experience for users and start to unlock some really exciting uses for new technologies."

Nik Willetts, CEO, TM Forum
