IBC2017 Innovation Awards

IBC announces the shortlist for the IBC2017 Innovation Awards. The international judging panel reviewed an array of entries, settling on 11 finalists from around the world, all offering different solutions.

 

The shortlist covers everything from a major football final to e-sports; from virtual studios to channel marketing; from mobile OTT on a massive scale to seamless content delivery on high speed trains. Taking to the stage during IBC Awards Ceremony on Sunday 17 September will be representatives from Toronto to Singapore, the UK to India, and Spain to the USA.

 

For 2017, IBC’s 50th anniversary year, categories in the Innovation Awards were updated to reflect and respond to the shifting industry landscape. Three awards will be presented for the most innovative projects in Content Creation, Content Distribution and Content Everywhere.

 

“I was astounded by the quantity, and most important the quality, of entries this year,” says Michael Lumley, chair of the judging panel. “It took a lot of intense discussion to get down to 11 finalists – it was a very tough task and there were many excellent projects which did not make the shortlist, often by a very fine margin.”

 

“The international spread of 2017 finalists reflects the global reach of IBC, and the global significance of these most highly-coveted awards,” Lumley adds. “I look forward to congratulating all the finalists and hearing the winners announced on Sunday night at IBC.”

 

Content Creation – three finalists: ITV, Mediacorp and Groupe Média.

Content Distribution – four finalists: Arena Television, DMC, Sinclair Broadcast Group and Viacom 18.

Content Everywhere – four finalists: BT Sport,  ESL, Google Earth and Renfe (along with Telefónica).
