An IBC 2005 update courtesy of IBC…

IBC Displays Zone...
Launched at IBC last year, the Displays Zone was a popular attraction with both exhibitors and visitors and will be back in Hall 8 for IBC2005.
With the technology constantly evolving, Displays are an increasingly hot topic within today's industry. This year the Displays Zone will present screens ranging from the largest plasmas to the largest projectors, whilst still embracing the best in small screen technology for mobile communications and miniature replay devices from key industry players JVC, Frontniche and Christie among others.
Sony will be hosting a living room of future concepts, providing you with a glimpse into the future of the technology that is on the way into our homes.

Content Production and Protection - A key theme for the Conference…
On Sunday 11th at IBC the focus of the Conference Theme Day sessions will be the subject of Content Production and Protection.
The day begins with a look at Metadata and will examine the current state of play, survey the metadata standards landscape, and explore the business benefits involved. Are the real metadata wars between competing standards, or between manufacturers? And their customers? And is the biggest metadata war the one against ignorance? Standards bodies, manufacturers, broadcasters and web publishers will debate these issues and more.
The day will progress on to the subject of rights in a digital world where pirates could potentially end up with something indistinguishable from a legitimate copy. Is the answer to develop ever more complex rights protection systems? Or is a better solution making the content cheap enough that piracy does not pay? Hear the technical, commercial and moral concerns of the subject, and bring your views to the debate.
The theme day will move on to look at the increasing number of platforms that consumers are able to view content on and the further pressures this places on producers especially in live situations. What implications will the growing number of available reception options have and will this mean separate coverage or programmes or can the same material be processed to make it suitable receiving and viewing on different devices?
The day will end by looking at the trends as traditional software companies' make major inroads into the broadcasting industry. Will they control the process and provide all the answers for an efficient production system to meet the demands of a multi platform world. Also, this session will look at the implications for broadcasters of developments that would allow programme makers to sell directly to the viewer.
In an interview with IBC TV News, Neil Dormand, Content Production and Protection Theme Day producer, questioned whether broadcasters would be able to afford to produce content for various outputs if it would mean having a production team or a producer for each of those outputs. This is just one of the many questions that will be tackled during this Theme Day. Click here to see the full interview.
