Multi-Screen Universe: TV, Tablets, Broadband, Smartphones and IPTV
We have entered the age of all video all the time. Video is no longer a manifestation of TV, video is a web experience, a mobile experience, as well as an IPTV, Cable and Satellite experience. Video is how consumers relate to the world. The conversion to the all-video culture has been so quiet and so quick, the implications of what an all-video culture may mean is only first becoming part of the national business and intellectual conversation. In this session, we are delighted to bring a group technology and communication experts who - through their own experience - have defined how the multi-screen universe has taken shape.
