The world’s biggest trade show for the broadcasting industry is upon us again. The IBC Conference kicks off at RAI Amsterdam on September 9, with the IBC Exhibition starting a day later. As well as being a barometer for the health of the industry, IBC is an opportunity to view the latest equipment, learn and see where the industry is heading. To help you make the most of your time in Amsterdam, Digital Studio suggest 10 things that you shouldn’t miss at IBC.

1. Super Hi-Vision in action

Super Hi-Vision was first shown at IBC in 2008, where it surprised audiences with its mind-blowing 7680 x 4320 resolution – more than 16x that of high definition – and 22.2 audio channels. Developed by Japanese national broadcaster NHK, it has advanced further in the last two years and now it’s back at IBC.

New for 2010 are practical full-resolution cameras, with three image sensors each of 33 million pixels. One of these will be set up permanently in the centre of Amsterdam, sending live pictures back over fibre to IBC. As well as the theatre, with its high brightness projectors, the signal will also be seen on special 58” diagonal plasma screens with 0.33mm pixel pitch.

Staff from NHK and its partners will be on hand throughout IBC to talk about the practical implementation of Super Hi-Vision for museums and galleries, town centre screens for major events, and eventually perhaps for broadcast to the home. If you want to know what one possible future of TV looks like, don’t miss this demonstration.
