Entries are now invited for the IBC2014 Innovation Awards. Remember these are all about collaboration, not simply technical innovation, so please submit projects which are currently either completed or in implementation within the below three categories.

  • Content Creation: Could it be a ground breaking concept in Transmedia? Maybe an intriguing use of augmented reality? Startling virtual camera angles perhaps?
  • Content Management: Winners could be those with a radical approach to asset management or cutting edge live production workflows
  • Content Delivery: New applications in remote production over IP or a market defining set top box design? 
In 2013 the winners included New Zealand’s Park Road Post Production for its work on high frame rate 3D finishing; RTÉ in Ireland for its file-based infrastructure FAST; and the Commercial Broadcasters’ Association of Japan for an innovative intelligent IP network connecting member stations across the country.

Winners are crowned at the IBC Awards Ceremony at the show in September, so don't miss this chance to show off your expertise.
