BOTHELL, Wash. — Sept. 23, 2020 — The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has published the presentation schedule for IP Oktoberfest 2020, a live, interactive, virtual event for broadcast and pro AV professionals to be held Sept. 29 – Oct.1, 2020. The event will highlight the industry’s significant progress toward an all-IP ecosystem supporting today’s real-world media productions.

“As a dynamic, real-time event, IP Oktoberfest 2020 will offer informative presentations with plenty of opportunity for discussion,” said AIMS Chairman of the Board Mike Cronk. “We have built an impressive presentation lineup, with experts from leading technology suppliers and forward-looking media organizations sharing their insights and experiences.
