Beginning tomorrow, September 13, and for the next five days, Collabora will be at the RAI in Amsterdam to take part in the 2019 edition of IBC, the "world's most influential media, entertainment and technology show"! If you are planning on attending, please make sure to add booth D15 in Hall 14 to your itinerary & come say hello!
This year, we are showcasing two brand new Open Source software demonstrations featuring the Xilinx high-performance Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, and the Magic Leap One augmented reality headset.
Here's Nicolas Dufresne, Principal Sotware Engineer, with a brief overview of our two Open Source software demonstrations at IBC 2019.
In addition to our booth and demonstrations, Olivier Crête will be kicking things off at the IBC Content Everywhere Hub this year with the very first presentation on the programme. His talk will take a look at the most relevant Open Source software in the broadcasting industry, and how these changes are empowering device creators, software developers and the end user. Read below for more on his presentation, and join us on Friday at 11:00 CEST!
Across the digital media ecosystem, whether it's capture, transcoding or playback, Collabora integrates leading Open Source projects such as GStreamer, FFmpeg, and Video4Linux, with the latest multimedia standards. At the intersection of capture interfaces, graphics drivers and display controllers, Collabora brings unmatched multimedia expertise. Please contact us to set up a meeting with us at IBC!
We look forward to seeing you at the RAI!
The broadcast industry is in the midst of a deep transformation, with flexible software solutions replacing static hardware products. Simultaneously, the software industry is being revolutionized by the replacement of inflexible proprietary software with customizable Open Source systems. The convergence of these two trends is key to empowering the end user of technologies and putting them in the drivers seat. It is now easy to create complex audio/video processing systems using Open Source software and generic computers and public cloud. From the initial capture to delivery, Open Source software that can be used throughout the broadcast chain to create complete, end-to-end solutions. Whether it's GStreamer, ffmpeg, UPipe, WebKit, SRT, OBS or simply Linux, there now exists a wealth of Open Source projects that can be customized to build software based systems, from the cloud to embedded devices. Building on Collabora's strong background in the video transport, broadcast & AV industries, we'll give a brief overview of how you can take advantage of these deep changes, and demonstrate how Open Source puts you in the driver's seat by allowing you to create better products faster, all while maintaining the ability to support them in the long run.
