Broadcast and digital media industry body recognises innovation and creativity in the broadcast and media industry.
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Belgian public broadcasting company VRT have announced they are finalists in the “special recognition” category of the IABM Design & Innovation Awards with the Sandbox LiveIP Project. The awards will cast the spotlight on new solutions and products that bring benefit or create new opportunities to the broadcast and media industry.
The LiveIP Project is a multi-vendor system integration to showcase IP-based live broadcast production using open standards. The collaboration between EBU, VRT and a group of innovative industry partners sees the implementation of a live TV production studio at VRT’s premises in Brussels.
Industry technology partners participating in the project include Axon, Dwesam, EVS, Genelec, Grass Valley, Lawo, LSB, Nevion, Tektronix and Trilogy who are providing all the elements of a live production chain driven by IP.
Peter White, Chief Executive, IABM says: “We’re delighted to announce the shortlisted candidates in our nine categories and highlight these pioneering products and services. Overall, the number and quality of entries are truly indicative of the talent and creativity inherent in the industry today. And, as we transition through some significant change, innovation and forward thinking have never been more important.”
Shortlisted entries will be judged by a panel of independent specialists chaired by John Ive, Director of Business Development and Technology, IABM. Winners will be announced at the IABM reception and awards ceremony at IBC in Amsterdam on Saturday, 12 September at 18:30.
