Also new for IBC will be TANDBERG Television’s broadband television solution that enables content programmers and aggregators to create, manage, publish and syndicate their content to multiple broadband platforms and devices in one complete system. The cross-format solution reduces the complexities of syndication through a turnkey system that works in any environment.
