IABM Young Person of the Year - in association with IBC365

Dominik Schulz

A student at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences, Dominik was one of the IABM-sponsored students attending IBC and his submission from that event demonstrated excellent use of the opportunity. In his report he provided a detailed account of how the industry is changing and the key developments shaping the future. He achieved this through an intensive schedule of time spent in the conference, the exhibition, the future zone and discussions with industry experts. He covered many topic areas including new image formats, camera technology, virtual and augmented reality and immersive audio. Dominik is clearly a rising star and one to watch out for in the near future.

IABM Peter Wayne Golden BaM Award for Design and Innovation

All the 20 winners of the IABM's NAB Show and IBC BaM Awards are automatically shortlisted for the year's top broadcast and media technology prize - the Peter Wayne Golden BaM Award for Design and Innovation. The judges got together again to pick this year's golden development:

Microsoft - Video Indexer

Video Indexer (VI) is an artificial intelligence service that provides an orchestration of multiple and customisable machine learning models based on multiple channels (voice, vocals, visual), to extract deep insights with no need for data analysis or coding skills. VI enables deep search, reduces operational costs, new monetisation opportunities, new user experiences and more; on large archives of videos with low entry barriers. It also enables easy integration with a customers' existing infrastructure via a REST API and ready-made embeddable widgets.

IABM 2018 Creative Collaboration Award

The Creative Collaboration Award celebrates ground-breaking innovations that have been realised through creative collaboration between technology suppliers and their customers. It recognizes break-through solutions resulting from close partnership between technology supplier(s) and their customer that provide measurable commercial or creative benefits to the customer. The 2018 winner is:

FOX Sports

For its FIFA World Cup coverage, FOX Sports wanted to send live video from Russia to editors and producers in Los Angeles for quick packaging and turn around to air in live shows being hosted in Russia. In essence, the network wanted to achieve the appearance of a live broadcast fully staffed on-the-scene, without the majority of the staff actually on-scene.

To accomplish this technical feat, FOX Sports convened Reach Engine by Levels Beyond, Amazon Web Services (AWS), IBM Aspera, Telestream and CenturyLink to build an integrated solution that would allow the network to keep its entire post-production team at its Los Angeles media centre. The process of sending video from Russia to L.A. and back in edited form was seamless thanks to all the tech companies participating, and represents a giant leap in sharing live events with audiences halfway across the planet within moments of the action taking place, said Levels Beyond CEO, Art Raymond.

IABM Technology Leader 2018

The Technology Leader Award recognises a person who is at the forefront of disruption and innovation within the broadcast and media industry who, through inspired leadership, has helped to deliver ground-breaking technology and business benefits. This year's winner is:

Michael Cronk

As a founder of AIMS, and chairman of its Board, Michael has been a driving force in inspiring the industry towards a clear, efficient path to standards-based, interoperable IP.

IABM 2018 Outstanding Woman in Broadcast - in association with Rise

IABM is delighted to present this new award in association with Rise, the not-for-profit, advocate group for women in the broadcast manufacturing and services sector, dedicated to the promotion of gender diversity in the industry. Rise aims to open up more opportunities for female broadcast professionals through holding quarterly networking events, seminars and a yearly mentoring programme.

Winner:

Glodina Connan-Lostanlen

Dr Glodina Connan-Lostanlen, PhD, MBA, began her career in the broadcast industry in 2001 with Harris Corporation, rising through sales and business development roles to become director of Product Marketing in 2012. In 2015, Glodina was appointed Chief Marketing Officer of Imagine Communications, and in April this year, became SVP & GM Americas Sales & Services.

Highly commended:

Aubrey Russell

Aubrey Russell has designed and built streaming workflows and master control rooms for clients such as Warner Music Group and Classpass Live. Her launch team for Classpass Live was fully female; director, technical director, and audio engineer. At Live X, Aubrey manages a team of nine producers who are shaping the future of the broadcast and streaming industries every day. She is proud to have strong women on her team. The best way to prepare the next generation of engineers, men and women, is to give them role models. Aubrey has built a team that is worthy of that.
