ATSC members are invited to attend the June 18-19 “Entertainment Technology in the Internet Age” conference at Stanford University, produced by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers in partnership with the Stanford Center for Image Systems Engineering.
The event will explore the technical, creative, and business requirements for delivering a compelling, high-quality, monetizable entertainment experience over the web, covering four aspects of the ecosystem and include an evening event with keynote speakers.
Entertainment technology development and content deployment has historically been the purview of Hollywood and traditional broadcast media. However, rapid convergence of technology improvements in connectivity, bandwidth, and media-processing coupled with consumer interest has caused a surge in media distribution over the web.
Among the sessions of interest to ATSC members:
“Future File Formats for Entertainment Media: What are the Tech Trends and Implications for Internet Distribution?”
“Next Generation Content in the Cloud: Ultraviolet”
“Mobile Internet Media: Content on the Go,” which highlights the ATSC A/153 Mobile Digital TV standard and its applications
“Internet, the Second Screen and Beyond”
