LIVE: IBC Edition – VidTech sessions for all in the OTT industry

Bitmovin’s next Virtual Event Series Live: IBC Edition, which includes content applicable to all regions across the world, is taking place between September 8th – 24th.  This content-rich virtual event will focus on how to innovatively reduce the cost of video distribution, app development, and optimizing video workflows with a plethora of tools. For our 3rd event series, we’re joined by some great partners and clients alike, like Dalet, Dolby, Google, Google Cloud Platform, IABM, Intertrust, Looker, Streamroot, Sky Studios, Teleport Media, Variety, ViacomCBS, and more!

These events are broken by content that anyone within the OTT industry can enjoy, from technical deep dives around codecs, compressions, and super-resolution, to high-level discussions and panels for decisionmakers around how to succeed in the global streaming industry. The International Trade Association for Broadcast & Media (IABM) stated:

“The Bitmovin Live series has demonstrated how it has been possible to adapt quickly and effectively to an online-only conference format in response to COVID-19,” said Ben Dales, Digital Media Manager from the broadcast and media technology industry trade group IABM. “IABM has long been a champion of collaboration, and with Bitmovin Live: IBC Edition, we are impressed to see Bitmovin expand its involvement to partners, industry leaders, and sometimes even competitors in the spirit of providing a place for the community to thrive despite the global challenges.”

LIVE: IBC Edition – Virtual Event Innovation with VR

Bitmovin is dedicated to using new and innovative ways of interacting with event participants.  As a complement to the usual programming of webinars, tech talks, and panels, it has created a “Virtual VR Event Booth,” a space that can bring prospects and customers closer to Bitmvovin’s employees and services. 

“The ‘Virtual VR Event Booth’ will showcase a high-level overview of Bitmovin origins, the value the company brings, as well as a look at the solutions and products that are offered,” said Jamie Attfield, Head of Design at Bitmovin.  “Attendees are also free to explore an assortment of collateral pieces that can be downloaded to their machines and devices for further reading. This experience will be accessible on mobile, desktop, and Oculus Quest, bringing a new perspective on how the company can communicate in the digital realm.
