We’re thrilled to announce that our product Channel Studio has won in this year’s Best of Show awards at IBC 2023 in the TVBEurope category.

The awards recognise the very best broadcast products and solutions on display at the show, with hundreds of submissions received. All entries were reviewed by a panel of industry experts, speakers, and editors, who considered the diverse and comprehensive sets of product features, ease of use, and how products can integrate with other tech stacks, not to forget the level of innovation brought to the market nowadays.

Channel Studio is the product for operators looking to launch a live linear channel in a matter of days. Utilising existing VOD assets and creating live channels in the cloud with optional ad insertion and a seamless playback experience. A Channel Studio-powered channel becomes broadcast quality through its easy-to-use scheduler, with multiple ways to distribute content to the end-users: a virtual channel with adverts or enriched by data-driven dynamic graphic overlays; a pop-up channel; a barker channel; or a FAST channel – free, ad-supported – syndicated to multiple platforms.

Dan Finch, Chief Commercial Officer at Simplestream, stated:

This award is a great achievement for a product we’ve been consistently working on across the past 12 months and beyond. With monetisation at its core, Channel Studio is already powering several projects within Simplestream’s portfolio of clients, from teleshopping and infomercial channels to real-time new coverage, supporting several ways for content distributors to increase their revenue streams.

The Best of Show Awards’ editorial team also said:

This year we received a record amount of entries and the quality across the board was incredible. Those who won should be extremely proud of their achievement – their product showed true innovation and hugely impressed our judging panel.
