Sky´s Snap on track for the IBC Innovation Awards

Sky Deutschland has got a big chance to win this year´s IBC Innovation Award: The German pay TV´s service Snap, an online media library, competes for an award in the category Content Delivery. All winners will be announced during the ceremony on Sunday 14 September 2014.

There are three categories in the IBC Innovation Awards scheme for the best applications of technology in Content Creation, Content Management and Content Delivery. According to a press release, the jury now announced the 10 finalists to compete at the IBC Awards Ceremony, which takes places at IBC 2014 on Sunday 14 September at 18:30 in the Auditorium in the RAI Amsterdam.

The IBC International Honour for Excellence, IBC’s highest award, will also be presented during the ceremony, along with awards for Best Conference Paper and for Exhibition Stand Design (more information can be found on the IBC website at

"From a bigger list of submissions than ever, our judges have worked hard to whittle them down to just 10," said Michael Lumley, Chair of the IBC 2014 Innovation Awards judging panel. "What I love about this year’s shortlist is that in each category there is a surprise, perhaps because it is an often-unheralded part of the broadcast chain, or it is from a fascinating part of the world."

One of the finalists in the category Content Delivery is Sky Deutschland. At the end of 2013 it launched Snap, an online media library offering thousands of films, series and children’s programmes from the Sky Collection, for the web, iPad and iPhone, and Samsung Galaxy and smart televisions, with more platforms to come. To make Snap work Sky Deutschland brought together a huge technical team, including Accedo, Atos, Capgemini, Coeno, Contone, CreateCtrl, Deloitte, Fincons, HP, ID Media, Namestorm, NTT Data, SHS Viveon, Sky Italia, TDS, Wirecard and Weeks.

IBC visitors are invited to attend the ceremony, which is free to all. (7/14)
