IBC Innovation Awards finalists revealed


IBC has announced the 10 finalists for this year’s IBC Innovation Awards. There are three categories: content creation, content distribution and content everywhere.

‘[We were] astounded by the range of imaginative projects submitted and had some really tough decisions to make,’ said Michael Lumley, chair of the international judging panel. ‘Although we never look for a theme in our list of finalists, the shortlist usually reflects the wider industry. This year, you can definitely see that there are a number of projects that are global in their scale and that use new opportunities in connectivity to bring us astounding images, whether that is capturing life under the sea or the excitement of sports.’

The finalists for content creation are:

The content distribution finalists are:

  • Associated Press for its technical audacity in using lasers through open water to bring broadcast quality video from depths of 200m off the Seychelles
  • BT Sport for its practical demonstration of the use of 5G for remote production
