The Switch® is to host its first ever booth at the IBC Show, showcasing a range of media solutions.

On stand 1.F10, the patented customer controlled scheduling and switching platform, SwitchIT™, as well as The Switch Access™, The Switch Studios™, The Switch OTT™ and The Switch At-Home™ will be displayed.

The Switch also plans to demonstrate its ability to customise solutions for the international content aggregation, delivery and management needs of its customers.

"The Switch has proven its capabilities as a global, full-service, media solutions provider. Much of our focus in 2018 has been on international expansion, and from a growth perspective it's been an exciting year for The Switch," said Keith Buckley, President and CEO at The Switch. "In addition to bringing multiple international locations on to The Switch network, The Switch also played a key role in supporting many of the largest international news events of this year."

Earlier this year, The Switch announced the launch of its global IP product, The Switch Access™. Since its release, The Switch Access has aided in connecting multiple, dedicated international locations to its robust fiber and satellite network across multiple continents, including hubs in Istanbul, Guam and Mexico City, and has supported remote productions for key international events like the E3 Conference, The Royal Wedding, The World Cup, the Mexican elections and the Turkish elections.
