08:45  to  09:30
Technology Overview
09:30  to  10:10

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.

Kieran Kunhya. Founder & Managing Director. Open Broadcast Systems.
Matt Salvidge. Manager, Solutions Specialists. Grass Valley.
Broadcaster Innovations
10:10  to  10:40

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.

Chair: Jake Bickerton, Broadcast Tech

Ian Wagdin. Senior Technology Transfer Manager. BBC Research and Development.
Roger Crothers. Head of Technology. BBC Wales.
Coffee break/networking
10:40  to  11:10
The impact of IP on outside broadcast
11:10  to  11:45

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.

Daf Rees. Deputy Director of Operations. Arena Television.
Quinn Cowper. Lead Vision Engineer. Timeline Television.
The post-production IP debate
11:45  to  12:15

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. 

Jeremy Smith. CTO. Jellyfish.
