Also the innovation - open and collaborative - was part of the reward. Needless to say this means a lot for the VRT, the EBU and for us, VRT Sandbox.

We've been going on air whole summer long for the VRT's childrens channel Ketnet.
Our open-standards based, multivendor full IP live production studio broadcasted no less then 60 live events and more than 200 recorded clips that where watched and enjoyed by many Belgian and Dutch kids during the 2016 summer of sports.
Our once experimental LiveIP studio has grown to a very mature, robust and reliable live production setup, which resulted in a 100 pct uptime!
