IBC Exhibitors I – J – K

Stand 15.MS1 and 7.G37

At IBC2017, media management technology specialist IPV will present the latest advances of its in-demand Curator MAM system in two locations – with Microsoft on stand 15.MS1 and in partnership with Oracle on stand 7.G37. Throughout the show, IPV will present to visitors the key considerations that need to be made before a content producer or broadcaster choses which kind of MAM system deployment is right for them.

“This year we are exhibiting alongside two of our key cloud partners, in order to highlight the flexibility of our Curator platform,” said Dave Cole, IPV’s CEO. “By approaching the show in this way, we’re able to demonstrate how Curator can be to be rolled out in any production environment, deployed however it’s needed by the user – as a hosted service, cloud-based platform, an on-premises installation or a hybrid of them all.”

With this multitude of different deployments that will vary from company to company, any potential users must weigh up its own distinct needs before deciding what kind of MAM system is best suited to them. The key considerations that IPV will be able to talk to IBC’s visitors about include installing a system around existing infrastructure, the location of assets and users, how far reaching a system will need to be and how much future-proofing needs to be considered.

In its demonstrations on the Microsoft and Oracle booths, IPV will showcase the latest technical developments of its Curator MAM system and how it’s configuration of microservices can be rolled out for content producers of sports, news and entertainment as well as for retail or creative services.

“Tradeshows like IBC are important events for getting together with customers – new and old – as well as partners like Microsoft and Oracle,” adds Dave Cole. “To have a presence on both these partners’ stands means we’re able to demonstrate the flexibility of the Curator system while speaking to visitors about what we can deliver.”

IPV will be available on the Microsoft stand – 15.MS1 – and the Oracle stand – 7.G37.


Junger Audio
Stand 10.A49

Digital audio specialist Jünger Audio will be focusing on Smart Audio solutions at IBC 2017 and highlighting their effectiveness within the broadcast environment.

Jünger Audio’s Smart Audio concept encompasses effective, high quality and possibly automated audio production, particularly in live broadcast and production environments. Smart Audio means investing in complementing, reliable and future proofed equipment that can deliver audio content, in automated as well as non-automated workflows, while continuously maintaining the high quality that consumers rightly expect.

The concept has already been adopted by broadcasters such as Sky Sports, Input Media in London and ARD Tagesschau, the German prime time television news service.

“Today everybody expects and requires a constant flow of high quality digital media,” says Peter Poers, Head of Business Development at Jünger Audio. “However, broadcasters are reluctant to invest resources on simply improving audio quality. The Smart Audio concept not only guarantees a predictable, high quality performance, but also offers a remarkable increase in efficiency for the production and post-production processes.”

By using Jünger Audio’s Smart Audio adaptive algorithm solutions, customers can achieve high quality sound in a very efficient way and with minimal requirement for manual control or intervention from an operator. This is of interest not only for broadcast applications, but also for new services like remote production and live streaming.

“These, too, will benefit from Smart Production Technologies in general and from Jünger Audio Smart Audio as dedicated part of this trend,” Peter Poers adds.

Alongside intelligent and adaptive processing algorithms, the introduction of Smart Audio allows broadcasters to choose devices that are fully interoperable with others in the broadcast environment and can seamlessly integrate with both playout automation systems and logging and monitoring processes.

Jünger Audio will be showing its full range of D*AP products, all of which incorporate a collection of adaptive processing algorithms. They also employ the industry standard Ember+ remote protocol that allows seamless integration with an increasingly wide range of compatible equipment. The range includes natural sounding products for loudness control, audio monitoring, audio conditioning & metadata management and Dolby® decoding, encoding and transcoding. Among them are the D*AP8 MAP EDITION surround monitoring audio processor; the D*AP8 CODEC EDITION processor that provides a viable replacement for any discontinued legacy Dolby® hardware processors; the D*AP4 VAP EDITION two channel voice audio processor and the flagship D*AP8 TAP EDITION television audio processor, which ensures consistency of loudness and sonic “character” across multiple programme sources.
