Prolight + Sound 2019 with the first Broadcast + Production Forum

10 Jan 2019

A new highlight for professionals from the fields of radio and moving-image production: the première of the ‘Broadcast + Production Forum’ seminar programme will be held at Prolight + Sound on Friday, 5 April. There, speakers with hands-on experience will present technological trends and future-oriented projects. Participation is free of charge for Prolight + Sound visitors.

From the triumph of IP-based transmission, via virtualised playout, to UHD streaming: new technological solutions are changing the sector at a rapid pace. The new Broadcast + Production Forum at Prolight + Sound provides a platform for these and other innovations and creates a contact point between companies, decision makers and users. Manufacturers of products such as cameras, radio links, streaming encoders, picture mixers, broadcast panels and specialised audio applications have the chance to present their solutions in 45-minute lectures.

The programme will be compiled by experts of the Hessischer Rundfunk broadcasting station and product specialists from companies represented at Prolight + Sound. Exhibitors from the broadcasting and production sector can submit lecture proposals until the end of January.

The Broadcast + Production Forum will be held in Hall 4, Level C, Room ‘Consens’ from 11.00 to 18.00 hrs on 5 April.
