A lively opening discussion providing a comprehensive introduction to the world of IP, from pioneering technology companies including Grass Valley and Open Broadcast Systems. The technology overview gives a clear explanation of what IP is, how it works, the main benefits to different areas of the facilities sector, the things to consider when incorporating IP and what the future holds for IP.
The IP Summit continues with a compelling session from a major UK broadcaster talking through its ‘IP transition project’. During the session, the broadcaster reveals how it has successfully implemented IP at different stages of the production and post-production process. You will also be one of the first to hear details about its planned new regional office that will be completely IP when it opens next year. The office has IP links from its in-house production studios direct to several local sporting venues.

The move to IP is set to shake up outside broadcast. If broadcasters are directly connected to stadiums using IP, does this mean far fewer productions will require outside broadcast vehicles to cover live/sporting events? This compelling session debates the impact of IP on outside broadcast and discusses how outside broadcast companies could adapt their business to survive and thrive in the new world of IP.
The final session at the IP Summit focuses on a post-production house that has used IP to good effect. Jellyfish has recently opened a fully-IP facility, stripping away the requirements for a machine room and enabling the VFX house to immediately adapt the functionality of its rooms to respond to client’s needs.
