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.
