Leading broadcast television associations, research laboratories and standards development organizations from around the world have organized a strategic conference focused on the future of terrestrial broadcast television. Supporting organizations include DVB, EBU, ATSC, NAB, NHK, and many others.
The Future of Broadcast Television (FOBTV) Summit will take place on November 10-11, 2011 in Shanghai, China. The purpose of the summit is to foster global collaboration to exchange technical advances in the rapidly converging areas of terrestrial broadcasting, consumer electronics and networking technologies – discussions that that may lead to the development of common strategies for the future of terrestrial broadcasting.
Industry technology leaders are being invited to work together to share their visions of the future of broadcasting. Bringing together the collective perspectives of experts worldwide should benefit industry leaders as they identify their optimum national path for terrestrial broadcasting.
The FOBTV Program Committee is co-chaired by Yiyan Wu, Principal Research Scientist of the Communications Research Centre (CRC) in Canada and Philip Laven, Chairman of the Digital Video Broadcast Project (DVB) in Europe.
