Accepting IBC’s 2018 International Honour for Excellence award on behalf of Sesame Street co-founder Joan Ganz Cooney, Sesame Workshop COO Steve Youngwood finds himself guided by timeless questions as the iconic organisation seeks to establish new shows and fresh content beyond the lasting success
IBC2018: The video industry will have to learn to juggle between AV1, H.264, HEVC and VP9 and future codecs like VVC. That’s the lesson from IBC where warring factions in the codec wars came to trade blows without landing a palpable hit.
One of the recurring themes during the IBC2018 Conference was partnerships and the importance of striking deals to boost reach and the range of content that can be made available to viewers and consumers.
IBC is run by the industry, for the industry. Six leading international bodies own IBC, representing both exhibitors and visitors. Their insights ensure that the annual convention is always relevant, comprehensive and timely. It is with their support that IBC remains the leading international forum for everyone involved in content creation, management and delivery.
