CeBIT Australia will for the first time live stream this year’s keynote conference sessions over the internet.

Sessions from speakers including NSW Premier Mike Baird, Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore and IBM Chief Innovation Officer Dr Bernard Meyerson will be streamed live for access by anybody with an internet connection, in Australia or internationally.

Viocorp will provide its Viostream adaptive bitrate streaming technology for the event.

Harvey Stockbridge, managing director of CeBIT Australia organiser Hannover Fairs Australia, said the incorporation of live streaming is designed to reflect the show’s new format for 2016.

“This year’s event is all about shaping the business technology landscape and live streaming goes hand in hand with that notion,” he said.

“Technology and business leaders have come to expect consumer-grade capabilities of streaming video through their experiences with YouTube and Netflix; simple, easy-to-access and a seamless viewing experience whether they’re in a boardroom or the back of a taxi.”

CeBIT Australia 2016 keynote speakers also include Innosight managing partner Scott Anthony, Australian entrepreneur Ross Dawson and technology futurist Shara Evans.

The event will take place at Sydney Olympic Park from 2–4 May.
