IBC Connected World

The exponential growth in the penetration of internet connected devices together with the increasingly diverse services that can run on them have huge implications for traditional media.

Using smart phones, tablets, games consoles, netbooks and connected TVs, consumers are seizing the initiative and devising new ways to discover, consume and interact with their favourite content. Broadcasters and content owners are responding by offering on-demand and streaming services as complements to their traditional distribution.

Anyone looking to make sense of these changes visited the IBC Connected World, a special area of IBC which brought together the very latest developments in online and mobile TV, 3G, 4G and OTT services, pioneering “second screen” applications and IP technologies that are impacting the creation, management and delivery of content in our increasingly connected world.
