Broadcast Academy


AT IBC2019

Broadcast Academy is the proud partner of IBC, and together they promote training and build expertise of the broadcasting professionals around the world. Every year, the Broadcast Academy hosts a series of panel sessions and practical training sessions at the IBC to share experiences of working on major international sports events.  

Day 1: Panel Sessions 

The panels and topics have been carefully chosen keeping in mind the impact of next-generation technologies on live sports production workflows.

A deeply engaging discussion on editorial, technology, cost saving and efficiencies in the sports broadcast environment allows all attendees to benefit from the experience and relevant examples of the successes and challenges of the African, Asian-Pacific and Middle East broadcast industry and professionals.


DAY 2:   Live sports directing with live TV simulator     

The Broadcast Academy and EVS in partnership with IBC has worked towards developing live production and operations skills of broadcasting professionals with focus on bringing new talent into the industry and encouraging more women in the field of sports production.
