Big Data, Big Resolutions & Big Names23 September 2013
By the time IBC2013 finally closed its doors a total of 52,974 attendees – conference delegates, exhibition visitors, exhibitors and press – had come together to share knowledge, conduct valuable business and set the industry agenda. While it is the sheer diversity of the industry that is addressed in both the conference and the exhibition, inevitably some key themes shine through. This year, there was huge interest not just in cloud services, but particularly in the possibilities of big data, to provide detailed information on audiences and thereby deliver tailored services and drive revenues. 4k resolution and beyond was another key talking point, with stunning demonstrations on many stands.
