Every year some of the VUALTO team up sticks for five days and head out to Amsterdam to ‘talk online video’ at the the International Broadcasting Convention. IBC has been running since 1967 and with over 55,000 visitors it is one of the key events in the year for VUALTO, with the worlds broadcast and media industry in attendance from all over the globe. We are now all back in the office having just about survived the marathon of meetings and the odd party of course! So here’s some of my top highlights from this year…
Our CEO & Co-Founder James Burt delivered a presentation titled ‘Live2VOD – There’s No Longer Time to Wait’, at the Content Everywhere Hub on Saturday 16th September. James explored the ever increasing demand in the industry for this service, and how VUALTO are making this happen with our VUREPLAY product offering.
Over The Table League Championship 2017
VUALTO hosted a football themed party with our partners Unified Streaming and MEDIA EXCEL. Along with free flowing drinks, the highlight of the party was the inaugural Over The Table (OTT) Football Championship (see what we did there…?!). JWPlayer, Cedexis, DTS, 24i, PCCW and Nexplayer all showed their competitive side but in the end, it was THEOplayer who played their way to victory, taking home the golden boot! We’re already planning a bigger and better tournament for next years show!
VUALTO’S New Orchestration Platform
In addition to our new brand identity and our more transparent approach to demonstrating our capabilities through our suite of products: VULIVE, VUREPLAY, VUOD, VUDRM and VUPLAY, we also showcased our new orchestration platform, the VUALTO CONTROL HUB. This allows broadcasters and content owners to control and automate their infrastructure and is the driver for integrating our products together, to make your online video happen!
Time for a Heineken at DASH-IF Networking Reception
After a busy day on the VUALTO stand on Sunday 17th, we all headed off to the DASH-IF Networking Reception at the Heineken Experience. We were proud to be silver sponsors for this event and it was great to relax with clients, colleagues and potential partners over a nice cold beer.
Catching up with Friends and Funny Hats!
There are many reasons why we love being a part of IBC. It’s great to see what’s happening in the industry and to be surrounded by companies who are doing some truly innovative work. It’s an inspiring environment and it’s great to meet so many new faces year on year, knowing that it will be the start of a new relationship. It always the perfect opportunity to meet with business partners and clients, many of whom have become good friends. So… at IBC, it’s fair to say we can always guarantee lots of fun moments!
