Come hear our ‘big screen’ thought leaders at this week’s IBC 2016!


Need an update on the challenges facing the broadcasting industry? Curious to discover groundbreaking new solutions? Or feel like attending some fascinating panel discussions on the future of cinema? If so, then Amsterdam is the place to be, as IBC - Europe's largest professional broadcast show – kicks off there today. Just as in previous years, several Barco thought leaders will join the conference panels. In addition, you’ll see Barco displays at work at the booth of video production leader EVS (booth 8.B90).

Discussing the future of the big screen
IBC is an exhibition, a conference and much more besides. Over the years, it has developed a whole series of dedicated extra events — like the IBC Big Screen Experience, a four-day program during which decision-making motion-picture professionals explore the latest developments in digital cinema and their impacts on cinema business models. You’ll meet Barco at four sessions, which are all free to attend:

11 September, 09:30 - 10:45 @ Auditorium, feat. Bill Beck, our Laser Guy
“Laser projection – is it ready for wide deployment?”

11 September, 11:00 - 12:15 @ Auditorium, feat. Brian Claypool, VP Strategic Business Development Entertainment
“Immersive audio – balancing key stakeholders’ needs”

11 September, 15:30 - 18:15 @ G102/3, feat. Tom Bert, Senior Product Manager Digital Cinema
“EDCF Global Update”

12 September, 16:00 - 17:30 @ Auditorium, feat. Domien De Witte, Strategic Marketing Manager Cinema
“Digital Cinema Investment 2.0: Where's the ROI?”

A backdrop for EVS’s media flows

In addition, there’s even more Barco at the exhibition: you’ll also find us at booth 8.B90, which is hosted by EVS, a leader in live outside broadcast digital video production systems. The EVS booth will act as an IP-enabled hub showcasing real-time media flows that connect live sports venues, broadcast center control rooms, studios and consumers. Our X1.9 LED and LDX-8482 displays will feature as a high-res backdrop for the images that EVS distributes at its booth.
