Trade shows are the lifeblood of the broadcast biz. It’s where deals are made, knowledge is passed and internet acquaintances become friends. Due to the pandemic, it has been impossible for trade shows to happen. We’re in full support of the decisions that have been made this year to cancel the trade shows. We have however missed the buffet dinners in Las Vegas, the stroopwafels in Amsterdam and will miss the bagels in NYC. We especially miss seeing all of our friends that drop by our booths to say g’day and see what we’ve been up to. We do hope that you’re all staying safe and looking out for one another. […]

IBC 2019 saw the first ever Streaming Mascots Alliance European meetup! In the above photo you can see Dan, Spiny and Whitley gathered together at the StreamShark booth at IBC. A great time was had by all! There were plenty of stories and escapades shared over Tim Tams and luke warm stroopwaffels. Unfortunately Harry was forced to remain at the vMix booth to make sure that at least 1 SMA member was doing their job! You never know who might turn up and want to join the Alliance. Bindi was also unable to attend IBC and Dan and Eamon sent their apologies.
This year at IBC 2019, there was a real change whispering through the winds, ushering in a new Streaming Mascots Alliance superstar. Although Dan Sinclair has been the face of the vMix Media Conglomerate for many years, not many people know that Harry has played a pivotal behind-the-scenes role. Harry has decided to take a brave step forward to become more visible among the vMix ranks and it’s really paid off. He’s heavily featured on 2 of the 3 vMix IBC 2019 mousepads! This is a prestigious acknowledgement of his tireless efforts and hard work over many years. Congratulations Harry!
