IBC IP Interoperability Zone
There is no doubt that one of the biggest themes at IBC 2016 was the migration from SDI to IP. We were thrilled to be a contributor to what many consider the largest interoperability demonstration ever to have taken place. Harmonic Spectrum™ X servers were used as part of the demonstrations for IP transport, showing support for SMPTE ST 2022-6 and VSF TR-03. The booth traffic was tremendous throughout the show.
Thought Leadership in Action
On the conference program front, Thierry Fautier, Harmonic’s VP, Video Strategy, presented his paper “Exploring New Ideas in VR & 360° Immersive Media” as well as participated in a number of UHD sessions. Jeff Koehler, VP, Solutions Engineering, was part of the exciting “Live from Space – NASA and Imaging”
Plus We Won a Few Awards
The VOS 360 cloud media processing service captured the IABM Design & Innovation Award, as well as TVBEurope’s Best of Show Award. In addition, IBC awarded one of its highest honors, the Judges’ Prize to NASA for the NASA TV UHD channel. Harmonic played a pivotal role in helping the channel become a reality.
