Eight diverse innovation project teams that have spent the last six months working on complex business and technology challenges will reveal their results through proof of concept demonstrations and discussions at this year’s show.
It will also be possible to view their progress on the IBC Digital platform.
This year’s Accelerator programme, supported by Nvidia, includes AP, Al Jazeera, Audible, BBC, BT Sport, Digital Domain, EBU, ESL, Fox Sports, Multichoice, OBS, Reuters, Pixar, RAI, RTÉ, Sky, TV2, VRT, Yle, Unity Technologies, Unreal/Epic and ViacomCBS.
“Collaborative innovation is at the core of IBC’s Accelerator Programme, which is exemplified by this year’s eight diverse, boundary-breaking project challenges,” said Mark Smith, Innovation Lead and Advisor to IBC.
“IBC Show attendees will see some world-firsts and context setting discussions with project Champions and Participants about their challenges, specific barriers faced and lessons learned through the Accelerator framework, with final proof-of-concept demonstrations that underline the ‘learning by doing’ ethos of the programme.”
