IBC TV News re-signs with Digital Rapids

IBC TV News has retained Digital Rapids, along with partner Datmedia, to handle its Web presence for the third consecutive year. Digital Rapids will be responsible for the timely encoding and delivery of news stories to the trade show’s site, both as daily packages and up-to-the-minute Web exclusives. In association with the IBC Mobile Zone, now in its second year, the company will also be responsible for the encoding of selected stories to 3GPP and MPEG-4 formats for download to mobile devices such as 3G cell phones.

IBC TV News encoding will be performed using a Digital Rapids StreamZ content encoding server running the recently released Stream 2.3 software. Stories will be fed to StreamZ live via SDI from the IBC TV News edit suites, and encoded in real time to Windows and Real Media formats. The StreamZ encoding software will then automatically transfer the files to Datmedia’s servers for hosting.
