BOTHELL, Wash.—The schedule is set for the Alliance of IP Media Solutions’ (AIMS) IP Oktoberfest 2020 virtual event. IP Oktoberfest, taking place from Sept. 29-Oct. 1, will highlight the industry’s progress toward an all-IP ecosystem to support real-world media productions.

“As a dynamic real-time event, IP Oktoberfest 2020 will offer informative presentations with plenty of opportunity for discussion” said AIMS Chairman of the Board Mike Cronk. “We have built an impressive presentation lineup, with experts from leading technology suppliers and forward-looking media organizations sharing their insights and experiences. We’re confident that any operation moving toward IP will benefit from the remarkable knowledge and expertise our presenters bring to the table.”
