IBC has announced the shortlist for its 2013 Innovation awards.
The 10 finalists come from nine different countries and include achievements from a new way to get close to sports action through dynamic workflow management, to the latest in delivering interactivity.
"This year our shortlist reflects the remarkable breadth of our industry, from a blockbuster movie to the research behind getting the best possible HD quality to the home," said Michael Lumley, chairman of the IBC2013 Innovation Awards judging panel.
"We have a remarkably diverse and fascinating shortlist this year, and like everyone I am keenly awaiting the ceremony at IBC and the announcement of the winners."
The award goes to end users who have brought together the technology partners and collaborators to realise a creative, commercial or technical goal. There are three categories, for projects in content creation, content management and content delivery.
