For over 50 years, the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) has been an unmissable opportunity to discover the emerging technological and economic market trends within the satellite broadcasting industry.

The 2019 edition of the show brought together over 1700 exhibitors including Google, Facebook, AWS, Cisco, Akamai and Microsoft. During the 3-day convention, 56000 attendees from 150 countries around the world participated in unique exhibitions and events in addition to attending a conference programme themed around ‘Shaping the future together’ which offered a line-up of over 400 speakers sharing insights into the latest tech trends and innovations.

Additionally, various networking events were organised throughout the convention allowing attendees to meet up with other key delegates in a relaxed environment.

Among the emerging trends noted this year were:

  • The migration of broadcasting data to IPTV platforms with the associated security risks.
  • The development of OTT platforms and the standardisation of DVB–I
  • LEO constellation projects which are starting to materialise

Sonema has attended IBC for many years now in order to meet with our partners and suppliers and confirm technological and economic market trends within the industry in addition to focusing our innovations to better serve our customers.

The next edition of IBC will be held from the 11th to the 15th September 2020
