One of the hottest topics for Elemental at IBC (Hall 4, Stand 4.B75) this year will be time-shifted services that give consumers view their video content with DVR controls like time delay, pause or repeat – on any device. The company we’ll announce a new product that will help content owners and distributors implement services that enrich live TV experiences and can be adapted for multiscreen viewing.
Elemental will have software-defined video demonstrations – from cloud demos featuring live linear encoding, non-linear TV services, and live-to-VOD apps to 4K/HEVC, MPEG-DASH, time-shifted TV services and seamless input failover solutions.
No Stress at IBC, Have Some Fun : let’s go to the 4K 4Charity !
The first annual 4K 4Charity Fun Run is being held at 07h30 (I know, it’s early but for the good cause) on Saturday 13 September close to the RAI. This is a celebration (co-sponsored by Ericsson) of all of the industry’s 4K HEVC achievements over the past several months – and an opportunity to do some good for those in desperate need. Proceeds will be designated for OXFAM International, which works to end poverty and injustice by mobilizing the power of the people against poverty.

This event is support from leaders from across the industry, including AJA Video Systems, Broadband TV News, deltatre, Dolby Laboratories, DTS, Microsoft, the Whiteoaks Consultancy and IBC’s organisation.
