The theme of this SMPTE conference is to examine and understand the impact of technology on the art of storytelling with the web as a key focus. The expansion of connectivity, bandwidth, and service options are redefining entertainment distribution to the living room, mobile, and beyond. Broadband, Wi-Fi, and Mobile networks are now beginning to leapfrog traditional distribution mechanisms, because of the rapid pace of innovation and performance improvements, flexibility of consumer options, and the ability to upgrade with a software download. Disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence could well revolutionize how, and by whom, stories get told. Join technical and creative experts for this 2-day event at the brand new Google Event Center in Sunnyvale, CA. Learn from the experts who are developing, driving, and deploying the next generation of storytelling to gain actionable understanding via parallel technology and strategy tracks. A must-attend for engineers, creatives, researchers, and management engaged in the future of the technology of storytelling.
