Ten Projects to Watch & Study
The IBC Innovation Awards shortlist of 10 finalists are all worthy of praise

The IBC Innovation Awards honour not just new developments, but the way they are used to solve a real world puzzle. They have to help a broadcaster or media company be more creative, more efficient or reach its audience better. Although we don’t know the winner yet, we do have the ‘shortlist’ of the 10 finalists who will be waiting nervously at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday night at IBC.

To win an IBC Innovation Award a project has to show real collaboration between the broadcaster and its technology partners. What makes a successful entry is something that solves a real creative, technical or commercial issue with style and flair, says IBC.

From a huge number of entries, the international judging panel have narrowed the field down to a shortlist of 10 across the categories: content creation, content management and content delivery. Here, we’ll list all the finalists and their worthy projects. We’ll cover each in a bit more detail in future IBC SneakPeeks e-mails.
