After an absence of three years, IBC – the International Broadcasting Convention – was back last week. This was a chance for the industry to come together, share knowledge, exhibit technologies and solutions, and meet people for the first time who they might previously only have seen on screens. It was a great event – despite the travel problems for many attendees – and we reviewed it at this week’s OTT Question Time, (Thursday 22nd September).

Together with Jean-Francois Pigeon, EVP of Sales & Marketing at Synamedia, Chris Ambrozic, VP & GM Discovery at Xperi, and Justin Fyles, Managing Director of Skylark, we discussed:

  • – The state of the OTT industry now, in 2022
  • – Highlights and trends from the show
  • – What people were talking about incl. FAST, AI and sustainability
  • – The companies to look out for
  • – And what’s on the cards for OTT product and commercial development over the next 12 months
