Convergence or divergence?7 February 2008
DVB World continues to be the annual, unique opportunity to be updated on the all too rapid developments in digital television. This year’s conference is being held on 12-14 March at the Intercontinental Hotel, Budapest, writes Fergal Ringrose.
The Conference promises to embrace the many strands of development and applications that are leading to an all-digital world. Subjects will include ‘Internet Television – Friend or Foe’, ‘Content Protection and Copy Management’, ‘Use of the Spectrum’, ‘Preparing for an All Digital Europe’ and more.
Speakers will include: Viviane Reding, EU commissioner for information, society and media; Lieven Vermaele, technical director, EBU; Charles Dages, executive VP, emerging technologies-Warner Bros.; Ildiko Sarkadi, commissioner for audiovisual media, Hungary; Ulrich Reimers, chair of DVB technical module, and a host of other well-known names.
Delegates at past conferences have commented that DVB World is: “An opportunity to get a coherent helicopter view of what we are doing”; “In a class of its own”; “Unique and should remain so to differentiate itself from trade shows and commercial staging.”
In short, this is a conference not to be missed, so register now as the early bird rate has been extended until 8 February.
