IET: Scaling TV - The IET John Logie Baird Lectures at IBC

17TH SEPTEMBER 13:00 - 13:45 AT E102, FREE-TO-ATTEND

TV is in transition to full IP based delivery driven by consumer behaviour and the worldwide growth in Broadband connectivity. This introduces a whole new thinking on all aspects of building services, infrastructure, and distribution whether on fixed line broadband or 4GLTE/5G. It has an impact beyond the technology and the devices being used, as TV is a major part of our society in entertaining, informing, and communicating with viewers. Leading practitioners in our industry present their views on the thinking and impact of IP delivered TV.



IET: What's next for Audio Codecs? The IET John Logie Baird Lectures at IBC

18TH SEPTEMBER 11:00 - 11:45 AT E102, FREE-TO-ATTEND

Audio is a vital part of all media and decades of research into codecs have given us a sophisticated landscape of audio codecs which can deliver stereo music at very low bandwidths. With very low latency codecs available for contribution that also support surround sound and next generation audio throughout the broadcast chain, we ask what the future challenges are and what’s next for audio in television and radio.
