Immersive audio and a look forward

There is a packed programme of presentations and debates today at the IBC Content Everywhere Hub. In their different ways, they are all leading up to the final session on stage, a panel discussion on what is next in reaching the online viewer.

Each day, the theatre in Hall 14 offers two debates on the hot topics of the connected world. These debates, like all events in the Hub, are free to all IBC visitors.

Today at 13:00 there is a look at matching sound to pictures. Object-based audio is taking off in a big way in cinemas: can we replicate the immersive effect of genuine surround sound through online services?

Then at 15:30 the programme wraps up for 2015 with a look forward. From smart TVs and games consoles to phones and tablets, and now HDMI streaming dongles: the number of ways to get content to consumers is still expanding. But how can broadcasters and content owners make audiences aware of what they offer? What developments in the pipeline will help?

The day’s programme also includes sessions on ABR, streaming, multi-platform delivery and much more. As always, you can find full details of the programme at, or visit the IBC Content Everywhere Hub in Hall 14.
