IBC IP Showcase

Learn From The Innovators

IP is no longer a “future” — it is here and now.  A visit to the IP Showcase at IBC2018 will confirm that real-time IP for production, playout and contribution is a practical, flexible, efficient reality that is rapidly taking hold in mainstream broadcast operations. 

Demonstrations

More than 50 vendors will work together to demonstrate real-world IP interoperability based on SMPTE ST 2110 final draft standards and AMWA NMOS specifications — a single set of common IP interop standards and specifications that are unleashing the full potential of IP in real-time media. 

To prove ease of use as well as interoperability, the demonstrations are divided into logical application pods — live production signal flows, contribution and playout signal flows, etc. — all shown under the control of familiar user interfaces.

Real World Scenarios

In the IP Showcase theatre, visitors will hear about the rapidly increasing number of real-world IP deployments from broadcasters who have already embraced IP signal flows. They will also learn about the business and creative benefits of IP, and how these benefits can be applied to their own operations.

Education Sessions

With no direct sales agenda, the IP Showcase is dedicated to educating and energising IBC visitors to embrace the change, plan effectively, and ultimately build a more flexible, more efficient and more creative broadcasting industry.
