IBC2016 Hackfest Hacks

IBC2016 Hackfest Hacks

2016 saw the second IBC Hackfest, the live competition to create new technological solutions to help speed the future of the media industry. This year’s winner was Skipaclass.

Sponsored by Accedo, Avid, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure and Streamroot, and part of the global Hackathon initiative, the IBC Hackfest set teams challenges which have to be solved with ingenuity and invention, in a short period.

Skipaclass - WINNER

A feedback platform for online courses for both teachers and students using facial recognition technology.

Nightcrawlers - 2nd Place

Allows broadcast companies to request on the ground video help anywhere in the world. Auto streams live footage from multiple shooters even on low frequency (4G) bandwidth.

Sportie - 3rd Place

Customised sporting stats and fan reactions for streaming sports games. 

Lie or Die

An app in which you can watch live and earlier recorded videos of presidential candidates interviews and speeches. A smart algorithm analyses facial expressions, voice tone and semantics to identify the probability that the candidate is dishonest. The audience is voting real-time to express their level of agreement/disagreement with what is happening on-screen.


Every VR Headset needs a little adjustment of settings. Easy to use, because you don’t need a controller. Just use your voice and/or head movements to for basic video playback controls. This app can bhe used on smartphones and on Smart TVs and broadcast to each other.
