In addition to hosting the biggest names in media and entertainment, IBC2023 will also welcome numerous first-time exhibitors from across the globe, showcasing everything from asset management control software and audio solutions to camera accessories and connectors.
AeroAudio, a designer and manufacturer of broadcast audio solutions, will be showing its wide range of products, including microphones, on-air switches and headphone amplifiers, in Hall 8.
Robojib will be introducing the compact P420 Pro at IBC2023
“We look forward to introducing you to our products and the range of products that we have with AeroAudio and what AeroAudio can mean for you,” said Edo Dijkstra, CEO at the company.
Blu Digital Group, a provider of end-to-end digital media software and services to the OTT, broadcast and streaming industries, is making its IBC debut on stand 7.P13.
“We’re really known for our cloud-based automation software that streamlines the content distribution process,” said Paulette Pantoja, CEO and Founder of Blu Digital Group. “We’re really looking forward to meeting everyone this September in Amsterdam. It’ll be a great opportunity to meet a lot of the core group that’s part of Blu to discuss our services, but we’ll also be providing demonstrations of our cloud-based automation software.”
Also showcasing its cloud-based innovations is Radio.Cloud, which is set to brings its cloud-native automation software for radio to Hall 8 and unveil Voicetrack.ai. Stations can use the Voicetrack.ai platform to fill dayparts (segments) that previously just played music and sweepers, turning what some see as a lost daypart into ‘appointment listening’ with custom local content.
Boutique design and manufacturing company PrimeLight Design will be bringing its Voxbox Pro and VoxCast to IBC2023. The Voxbox Pro is a camera accessory designed to capture perfect down the lens interviews, while VoxCast is a new webcam that is said to solve the problem of lack of eye contact online. Steve Lord, CEO, PrimeLight Design, said: “We really love interacting with our end users and resellers at events, so we’re really excited to be exhibiting at IBC this year for the first time.”
In Hall 12, Cinetica will be showing Nu.Tron 4.0 – a “purely mechanical tool” that offers weightless and stable camera movement “without electronic limitations”. The camera remains stable in any position by the sole means of perfect balancing, without electronic stabilisers.
Robojib, meanwhile, is introducing what it claims is “the most compact, versatile and easy to carry crane on the market”, the P420 Pro. It allows operators “to create unique shots in confined locations like a tiny apartment where usual cranes can’t go” as well as more traditional applications on TV sets or at outdoor events.
Vivaro Media will be exhibiting in Hall 5 as the company looks to expand its services internationally, particularly in Europe. “We have a network that already interconnects many of the big capitals in Europe to broadcasters, but now we’re bringing more services in terms of sports distribution, contribution from venues and also production,” said CEO Daniel Gonzalez. “IBC will be an excellent opportunity to connect and show you all the benefits that we can bring to your company.”
Also in Hall 5 is Recombee, an AI-powered personalisation solution that aims to improve the user experience and in turn increase retention. Gabriela Takacova, Co-founder and Head of Business at Recombee, said: “Visitors to IBC can expect to see the innovations in which Recombee helps media companies and broadcasters deliver the ultimate customer journeys. We will present you with the advances in our strongest features, like personalised search or item segmentations, and we will show you the use case applications from our biggest clients.”
SaaS platform provider Looper Insights is exhibiting for the first time at IBC, also in Hall 5. The company is launching new functionality for its analytics tool, giving studios, broadcasters and other content owners the ability to monetise their content through insight into the performance of their content or streaming app.
In addition to providing demos of its analytics tool on the stand, Looper CEO Lucas Bertrand will be presenting on the Content Everywhere Stage, offering an exclusive preview of the new functionality of the product.
At its first IBC outing, Perfect Memory will be showing the first asset management software to provide native integration of MovieLabs’ Ontology for Media Creation (OMC).
Steny Solitude, President and Founder, Perfect Memory, said: “Ontologies are powerful tools for collaboration and decision making. Many domains have their own ontologies, and we didn’t want to reinvent a new ontology. This technology partnership will not only allow us to support MovieLabs in their market evangelisation, but also to be immediately operational for the needs of production studios.”
In Hall 12, Songtech will be highlighting its wide range of connectors, including its recently launched High Density BNC connector (HD-BNC), which retains the electrical characteristics of the original specification within a footprint about a quarter of the size. This allows for much higher packing densities on circuit boards and equipment backplanes. The HD-BNC delivers both true 50-ohm and 75-ohm impedance, making them suitable for HD video applications.
