EVS enabled IBC TV to launch its first ever live streaming and VoD service for mobile devices at this year’s IBC2015, which closes today. Having powered IBC TV’s video production solutions for the seventh year in a row, EVS’ C-Cast technology was used in conjunction with streaming specialists Streambolico to deliver multimedia content exclusively to golden pass holders at the show.
IBC TV Live gave viewers a live video streaming channel and on-demand content of recorded keynote presentations and news bulletins from the IBC2015 show floor.
The solution was used to deliver content to the application uses both EVS’ cloud-based C-Cast platform to transport the VoD media and Streambolico’s CrowdWiFi streaming service to stream real time multicast content over the high-density environment of the trade show. This multimedia delivery is integrated with IBC TV’s existing live production infrastructure which also relies on EVS solutions.
“Having worked with EVS to build a close partnership for a number of years, we know that including C-Cast into our workflow would take the IBC TV news offering to another level,” said Sue Robinson, producer of IBC TV. “What we do has become such an integral part of the IBC experience and we’re so pleased that it continues to grow.”
“Every year as IBC gets bigger and better, our visitors want more and more,” said Phil White, director of technology and events at IBC. “Being able to offer this service to everyone at the show is a sign that as audience expectation grows and broadcasters deliver the latest content to consumers, so does Europe’s biggest broadcasting trade show.”
