Q&A: Michel Bais, managing director, Mobile Viewpoint

Has IBC come at a good time for the electronic media industry? Why?

IBC presents an opportune location to share and showcase our latest innovations across IP and live video production. We believe that with the push on technologies on IP in video production that IBC is perfectly timed to highlight the latest developments in these technologies including our own. The ability to meet and interact with industry professionals in person is very important in this rapidly developing business. It is great that IBC offers a platform to make this possible.

What do you think are the key developments in, or threats to, your market sector at the current time?

In today’s fast paced media environment the ability to deliver news fast is more important than ever before. Using IP technology enables broadcasters now to be live fast and from almost every corner of the world. The deployment of our solutions by major broadcasters such as the BBC shows that this technology is now widely accepted as the major tool for cost effective and fast newsgathering. Using our web-based IP MCR customers are now also able to also share live feeds with other broadcasters and receive feeds from around the world. However, we still experience that low cost solutions sometime affect the image of the current professional wireless broadcast market by offering low cost solutions but with poor quality.

Why should delegates visit your stand at IBC? 

Mobile Viewpoint, Europe’s number one company, is developing IP contribution solutions for major broadcasters such as BBC, Sky Sports News, TVP, RTL and many other media companies worldwide. In meeting our customers’ needs in enhancing mobile newsgathering facilities, we keep innovating and developing new products and solutions which we launch on every big broadcast event. At IBC2015 we are showcasing our WMT Store & Forward solution for wireless fast uploading of camera feeds from the field to post production facilities.
