Once again some of team VUALTO headed out to Amsterdam for the annual IBC show. IBC is always an exciting show for us; the chance to showcase our latest technologies, to meet with familiar faces and to build exciting new relationships within the industry. This year was no exception!
Here’s a few of VUALTO’s IBC 2018 highlights:
We launched the VUALTO CONTROL HUB
Our stand this year was dedicated to the VUALTO CONTROL HUB (VCH). The VCH is our orchestration tool, which brings to life all elements of your video delivery. Developed out of deep understanding for content owners needs, the VCH brings integration with the encoders, streaming servers, workflow rules and DRM into a single set of APIs and GUI. The VCH integrates with VULIVE, VUREPLAY, VUOD, VUDRM AND VUPLAY to provide full control of your video delivery.
Our Head of Software Development Chris Airey, who has been instrumental in the creation of this powerful tool, presented at the Content Everywhere Hub on Monday 17th September. Here he demonstrated the flexible and scalable nature of this all-encompassing tool. Many existing clients have already upgraded to the VCH and demand for the VCH post IBC is high.
We sponsored the DASH-IF Conference
We were proud to sponsor the DASH-IF conference once again! A great evening was had by all at the Heineken Experience, with team VUALTO catching up with lots of familiar faces and meeting with many new individuals and companies who are doing great things within the industry.
OTT Football Tournament
We were delighted to host our second OTT Football tournament with our partners at Unified Streaming and Media Excel. After a very competitive but fun set of games, it was Castlabs who claimed this year’s golden boot trophy! Will you be game next year?!
At IBC there is no shortage of parties to attend. We chose well on Saturday night as we attended the Unified Streaming/Mux party at the A’DAM Lookout. From disco and karaoke lifts, to swinging ourselves off the 20th floor of the building, it’s safe to say team VUALTO had a night to remember!
We got to know each other better
IBC is first and foremost about technology and meeting like minded individuals who we can work with and innovate with. On a more personal note, travelling is always a great opportunity for a bit of team bonding! At VUALTO we strongly believe in the work hard/play hard moto. As always, Amsterdam gave us the perfect platform to do this!
Until next time…
