INSIDE 4


It’s a shame that, once again, we’re not able to bring you news from the exhibition halls of the RAI, but this issue will still provide you with the latest product launches from the industry’s most innovative technology firms. If the past couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that the ability to adapt and adjust, often at a moment’s notice, is essential. For the IBC Daily, that means moving from four issues to two (with the second issue to be published on Monday 20 December). It also means a considerable reworking of the content programme; since the cancellation of the in- person event, many of our IBC colleagues have been working hard to reschedule and capture all of the content that would for the first time have been delivered on the exhibition floor of the


RAI. Instead, the keynotes will be published on IBC Digital next week, and then the focus will turn to the theme of ‘innovation’. To make sure you don’t miss a thing you’ll find up-to-date schedules online at IBC Digital. If you haven’t already, then make sure you register to use IBC Digital where you’ll find videos, exhibitor profiles and the ability to chat with other members of the IBC community. And throughout this issue, where you see video or digital icons, you will be able to quickly access additional content hosted on IBC Digital.


In a neat nod to the past, some of the keynotes and presentations (including the session pictured above) are now being recorded at our technology partner 4Wall’s studio at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. The more experienced readers or those with

a knowledge of IBC’s origins will know that this was the location of the first IBC conference and exhibition. While the use of Unreal Engine-generated virtual environments would have blown the minds of delegates attending the inaugural IBC back in 1967, I’m sure they would recognise IBC’s ongoing focus on providing the industry with a focal point for discussing, exploring and engaging with the latest ideas and technology for capturing, crafting and delivering great content. We hope this issue provides you with a flavour of that insight and be sure to keep an eye out for the 20 December issue when we will bring you more product news and insights from our keynote speakers and panellists.
