It’s one of team VUALTO’s favourite times of the year; we pack our bags and head out to Amsterdam for the IBC Show.
This is an opportunity for us to meet with new and existing clients, partners and industry influencers and to showcase our latest technologies.
IBC 2019 did not disappoint and here are some of our highlights…
WE MET LOTS OF PEOPLE DOING COOL THINGS IN ONLINE VIDEO
This year we met with a host of people looking for an online video orchestration and delivery tool. The VUALTO CONTROL HUB (VCH) was our key focus for this year’s IBC, together with our VUDRM content protection. We have had multiple conversations with existing and new clients, who are excited to now receive personal demos, so they can understand exactly how the VCH can work to enhance their online video delivery and complement their personal business model.
As always at IBC, it’s a prime opportunity to catch up with our partners to include: Bitmovin, Unified Streaming, JW Player, THEOplayer, Media Excel, Garland etc. There are exciting developments in the pipeline for our growing relationships, so keep watch on our blog for future announcements.
WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT VIDEO!
This year we were proud to deliver a talk on our partner Bitmovin’s stand. VUALTO Tech Lead, Mark Niland showcased our live clipping tool - CLIP2VU and explained how the integration of the Bitmovin player has assisted us in developing a highly effective clipping tool, for publication methods such as social media syndication.
Our Head of Software Development, Chris Airey and VUALTO Technical Lead, Chris Jones presented at the IBC Content Everywhere Hub, demonstrating to the audience VUALTO’s ability to deliver live event scaling on-the-fly.
In addition to this, we delivered a series of talks on the VUALTO stand, demonstrating our expertise in other areas to include: Live Media Syndication and Archiver.
WE PARTIED WITH OUR PARTNERS AT UNIFIED STREAMING
We were delighted to sponsor Unified Streaming’s party at the A'DAM Lookout. A perfect end to day one at the show, with top tunes, flowing wine, disco and karaoke lifts and catching up with key players in the industry. A great night was had by all!
WE SPONSORED THE DASH-IF CONFERENCE
Once again we were proud to sponsor the DASH-IF conference at the Heineken Experience. More networking and the chance to sample the local produce!
WE WENT WILD FOR OTT!
An annual tradition at IBC, we hosted our OTT football tournament in collaboration with our partners, Unified Streaming and Media Excel. This year we pulled in quite the crowd with lots of new participants. After a tense final between THEOplayer and Cleeng, it was Cleeng who triumphed to win the infamous golden boot! A big thank you to all to took part! Who will brave the table next year?!
So here’s to another great IBC!
New relationships forged, existing relationships strengthened and as always, there’s nothing quite like an IBC for a bit of team bonding.
We’re looking forward to the coming months and seeing lots of new opportunities develop further.
Tot volgand jar Amsterdam!
