With our 16th edition of the Broadcast Innovation Day that took place at our headquarters in Bingen, Germany, we set a new highlight for our event series. With around 350 participants from 30 countries, more visitors than ever before came to Bingen and turned the event into an international industry meeting.
The one-day free event provided visitors with demos, lectures, panel discussions and an exhibition to learn about new products and future technologies in broadcasting. Promoting the slogan “Explore the trail”, the event focused not only on presenting current projects - more than ten OB Vans under construction were on display in the Broadcast Solutions workshop. The exchange of experience within the industry was and is just as important to the organiser. The Broadcast Solutions’ experts provided information on new approaches and innovations recurring to projects the company has been working on all around the world. Part of the event was an exhibition area with over 35 manufacturers presenting their products and solutions.
A further highlight, as at previous Broadcast Innovation Days, were the panel discussions in which producers, manufacturers and system integrators discussed current trends in the broadcast industry. Topics such as SMPTE 2110 standardisation, the advantages of remote production or whether software will replace hardware in the TV industry were matters raised on stage.
