IBC’s Content Everywhere theatre is a mainstay of IBC, but with IBC 2021 cancelled, our Managing Director, Ed Abis was invited to a virtual session to talk about ‘ways to build, engage and retain online audiences’.
Colin Dixon, Founder and Chief Analyst at nScreenMedia led the discussion with the team of experts including Matthew Wilkson, CEO of Magine Pro and Joe Foster, co-founder of Easel TV. With viewer trends changing so much over the last few years, the panel talked about the variety of different approaches in attracting audiences and delivering a quality viewing experience.
Considering broadcasters, video service providers and even touching on theatre productions, the focus turned to the number of ways to engage viewers on social media and how it “flagposts” the live production.

Discussing if Dizplai – our cloud-based display platform- works best for one particular genre, Ed stated, “No, we work with the BBC for The One Show which is an entertainment show, the Martin Lewis Money Show Live – a factual show, lots of sports, and any genre where you have an audience watching content that’s likely to have an opinion – we can make it work.”
An eye-opening session saw the panel cover various areas:
