IBC Announces New London Tech Event

IBC has announced a new broadcast technology event, IBC London Technology Booster, which will take place at Dexter House on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 June 2013.
The conference will focus on Cloud Services and Connected Content.
"We have had a lot of feedback from vendors and buyers who see great value in the IBC Conference, but are unable to attend as their priorities lie primarily with the exhibition. Many see great opportunities arising with the convergence of services and technologies in the Cloud, and with new technologies for connecting content to consumers, but are unable to keep up with the fast pace of change," says Professor David Crawford, Chair of the IBC London Technology Booster.
"We have created the IBC London Technology Booster to overcome this difficulty. New attendees to this event will experience an informative and interactive approach to these topics, and regular IBC Amsterdam Conference delegates will find this a crucial technology booster in the run up to IBC2013."
The sessions give an insight into the implications of the Cloud and Connected Content on the broadcast and electronic media and entertainment market.
Over two days, the conference offers over 15 hours of tutorials, case studies, workshops, audience debates, panel discussions, presentations and networking activities addressing core business issues.
Expert speakers include Bob Harris, CTO of Channel 4, John Honeycutt, EVP and COO of Discovery Networks International, Professor Ed Candy, CTO, 3 Group, and John Zubryzcki, Principle Technologist, R&D at the BBC.
Delegates are able to submit questions in advance through the IBC website, which will be addressed by the technical experts throughout the sessions, and will be particularly useful for the Quick Fire Questions Clinic at the conference. There will also be additional opportunities to raise queries for speakers during the pre-event networking sessions, these will be answered in the Ask Me Anything online forums. 
Day one of the programme covers Cloud Services to help participants understand how to handle large datasets in the Cloud and includes a case study from the Oxford e-Research centre.
Day two focusses on Connected Content, exploring the market opportunities offered by new convergent platforms, explaining how to manage digital assets and predicting the future role of broadcast in a multicast world. 
Aimed at technical professionals working in the electronic media, broadcast, and entertainment industry in the UK and Europe, the IBC London Technology Booster brings together sales engineers from vendor companies with engineers from broadcasters in order to forge closer relationships and develop stronger business links between participants. 
Register before 5 June to ensure a discount of up to £100 with early bird passes starting from £199. To find out more out the IBC London Technology Booster visit
