On the Verge: How Innovation Threatens the Future of Broadcast

Sat. April 22| 3:20 PM - 3:55 PM | N262-N264

UHD, EDR, HDR, HFR, WCG, 8K… As the alphabet soup keeps getting thicker, it may be less clear which technological innovations will have the biggest impact on the future of broadcast. The dominance of on-demand viewing and the frequent advances in display technologies have shifted the balance of power from distributors to consumers. Traditional broadcast and cable companies are now in a race against OTT distributors such as Netflix and Amazon, who already have a clear lead on harnessing innovation to win more and more of viewers' time. Ultimately, the "winning" innovations are being chosen by a new generation of content creators, those redefining media to cross platforms freely and eschew the conventions of format and distribution that have defined our past.
