The Best Of IBC announced

Thousands of new products appeared at IBC this year, with a wide spectrum of applications. Some offered simple solutions to long-standing problems, others raised the bar of quality higher, others were revolutionary. We are happy to present our Best Of IBC, the full list of winning companies, along with their winning products.

The cloud, the increasing predominance of IT-based systems and 4K were the key trends at IBC2013. The show was packed with more than 1400 exhibitors, most of whom had new products on display.

The TVBEurope and IBC Daily teams have selected the best of these products, across the categories of Acquisition, Recording and Acquisition Workflow, Camera Support, Lighting, Audio, Production and Infrastructure, and finally Links, Transmission and Delivery. A total of 81 products made the list this year, a testament to the increasingly high quality of innovation at IBC.
