With over 1,700 exhibitors, 400 inspirational speakers across 90 sessions, and more than 57,000 attendees from more than 170 countries, IBC is something we always look forward to. With its focus on “Shaping the Future Together”, the theme is perfect for what MainStreaming has been able to develop in the past year: the most innovative way to deliver video for live streaming and video on demand.
As experts and professionals from around our industry will be speaking and presenting on how to shape the future of media, entertainment and technology, it has never been a better time to attend this annual event. Meeting with our peers and bouncing ideas off of each other is something we’ve gotten to experience over the last couple of years that we’ve attended.
For 4 days, people will stamp the ground, looking for all the latest and most innovative technologies at RAI Conference Center in Amsterdam. The business center is a symbol for the ever-growing presence of technology in our world, a place to be for future-thinking people.
When I co-founded MainStreaming in 2015, it was the moment in which live streaming and VOD had taken off, but there was no technology able to back up their exponential growth. From my first experience at IBC, I realized there was a need for the technology MainStreaming was building, our one-hop delivery network. MainStreaming was able to directly deliver video content cost efficiently and seamlessly, answering a specific market need created by broadcasters and media companies while giving clients everything they needed to provide their audiences with an outstanding quality of experience (QoE).
