IBC: The Show, Trends & More with Michael Crimp, CEO

IBC: The Show, Trends & More with Michael Crimp, CEO

IBC CEO, Michael Crimp talked exclusively to us about the past, present and future of the IBC Show. 

ProductionHUB: IBC is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. What is it doing to celebrate this occasion?

Michael Crimp: 50 years is a great achievement, and of course we will be recognizing it. We are producing a commemorative book, and our annual party will be particularly special this year. IBC is also starting a new charitable venture, supporting an Amsterdam group that provides support through sport for disadvantaged and disabled children. If you want to play against former
Ajax players in our Saturday night match, bid now to join the IBC All-Stars! But the most important way we can celebrate the golden anniversary is by carrying on being the leading global forum where the real issues of the industry are discussed and new strategies developed. Back in 1967 the founders of IBC knew that to be a success the event had to have three strands: a comprehensive exhibition, a visionary conference, and the networking opportunities to share ideas. 50 years on we have a huge amount to talk about: from Ultra HD to 5G connectivity; from IP to cyber-security. And IBC is still the best place to do that.

Avid's Latest Innovations Involve Leveraging the Cloud & More at IBC 2017

Interview Image

Avid’s President, Jeff Rosica, answers a few questions about Avid at the 2017 IBC show.

Q What's "hot" right now that you think will make a big impact at the show?

A Two key areas are immersive experiences and the continuing rise of 4K. Sports broadcasts are increasingly employing virtual and augmented reality to make viewer experiences more immersive, while filmmakers are enhancing the cinema viewing experience with immersive audio. And with companies like Netflix and Amazon producing 4K content, this high-res media format is firmly taking hold. Another topic that will probably be a big topic this year will be content protection and system security as they’re more critical than ever, particularly as the industry embraces open platforms and cloud-based workflows.

Miller Camera Support Has Two Projects in the Pipeline... Stay Tuned

Interview Image

Charles Montesin, Marketing Manager, Miller Camera Support Equipment talks a little about the 2017 IBC show.

Q What's "hot" right now that you think will make a big impact at the show?

A 4k and HDR will remain the key topics. 4k TVs remain very expensive however, so uptake will be minimal until the price of them comes down. 5G is being discussed in C-Tech Forum. 5G, when it becomes a reality, is likely to have a greater impact on our lives than 4K and HDR. 5G is worth keeping an eye on.
