IBC HACKFEST - Media Convergence and the Future of Audiovisual Content Creation, Distribution, and Monetisation - #CanYouHackIt?
The first IBC Hackfest is slated to kick off at IBC2015 in the Netherlands from September 11-13, in the heart of the RAI venue in Hall 5. The event will run a full weekend with the theme of Media Convergence and the Future of Audiovisual Content Creation, Distribution, and Monetisation. Coders, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, hardware hackers, UX and UI specialists and others will come together and brainstorm over a couple of days to build out their ideas on the future of broadcasting.
Partners include Twitter, Amazon, Monterosa, Genius Digital, Beatgrid Media and Streamzilla. Driven by the IBC project management team and the Hackitarians, the IBC Hackfest will offer thousands of euros in prizes, three days of hacking, livecoding contests, algorave-style performances by Alex McLean and other international audiovisual artists, two nights of accommodation at the venue and the opportunity to show work to some of Europe's top players in the broadcast community.
“Here at IBC we are always looking to bring innovation to the show floor amongst our many Feature Areas. We are particularly excited about the first ever Hackfest at IBC 2015 which will see the next generation of young industry experts pitch against each other in a bid to create something original and state of the art,” said Mike Crimp, CEO of IBC.
By tapping into API's and SDK's made available by technology companies currently, as well as scores of publicly available APIs, developers can work together with other participants to cultivate new ways of tackling old problems. Brainstorming together over the three days can of course also result in new friendships, new networks and most importantly, new products and services.
“We are really thankful for our partners and IBC getting behind the concept of real time innovation and hacking to make this all possible,” said Hackitarians founder Richard Kastelein. “This is not only a brilliant opportunity for IBC Hackfest participants to get their ideas and present them to a group of influential judges and win some serious cash, it’s a great opportunity for our partners to reach out to a younger demographic of innovators and enhance their own developer communities as well as find new human resources for the future.
The IBC Hackfest was created to help drive innovation in both the old and the new realm of broadcast entertainment.

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia23.3.2018 07:00 | Pressemelding
Given the momentum behind Elliott's campaign at Telecom Italia to improve both performance and governance, Elliott was not surprised to see yesterday's resignation of seven board members affiliated with Vivendi. Unable to advance any meritorious arguments, the Board has simply abandoned their posts to stall for time. Elliott regards this action as cynical and self-serving, in that it delays the ability of Telecom Italia shareholders to express their votes at the upcoming AGM. This is yet another example of minority shareholder rights at Telecom Italia being abrogated and the continued disregard of corporate governance best practice. Finally, Vivendi should note Elliott's forty-year track record of consistent value creation, and sustained, long-term commitments to expose poor governance and catalyse positive change; Elliott's investment history in Telecom Italia dates back to 1999, well before Vivendi became a shareholder in the Company.

SafeHeal, an early-stage medtech company specialized in digestive surgery and focused on the development of the Colovac device, announces today that it has closed a €6 million Series A financing round led by Sofinnova Partners.

Redwood delivers a catalogue of 35,000 of these ready built robotic services that can be linked together by business users in a visual plug and play interface. End-to-end business processes can be modelled, robotized, tested and deployed without cost and risk.
