The IPTV and Mobile Zones at IBC2008 were busy and offered lots of technology to consider for those interested in advancing Internet Protocol television, Web TV and video to mobile devices like cell phones and in-car receivers.

Broadcast Engineering produced video reports from around the entire convention, and IPTV Update had a chance to host a short video tour of the IPTV Zone. During the tour, Mark Lambe from Shenick discussed his company’s efforts to make IPTV monitoring effective; Alex Hayward from Digital Fountain talked about how the company’s proprietary forward error correction technology is enhancing the viewer’s experience; and Mikael Samuelsson from Edgeware discussed his company’s solution for serving up content for Web TV content over the public Internet.

This edition’s Sound Off is presented in video form.
