For anybody who has an interest in the future of television, the 2015 ATSC Broadcast Television Conference is this year’s not-to-miss event.
Under the banner “Tune In to the Future,” the May 14 conference will feature a broadcast executive roundtable addressing strategic business issues surrounding the incentive auction and the future of broadcast television, as well as presentations on the status of ATSC 3.0, industry research reports, sponsor company demonstrations, and presentation of the prestigious Bernard J. Lechner Outstanding Contributor award.
The centerpiece of the program, The Future of Television Super Panel, moderated by Former Chairman of the FCC Richard E. Wiley, will bring together industry leaders – NAB’s Gordon Smith, NCTA’s Michael Powell and CEA’s Gary Shapiro – for a lively dialogue on the future of television as the industry adapts to changing consumer tastes, new expectations and evolving technology.
