Session Abstract: 
In the age that is being dominated by new mobile devices, the anchor of the content consumption industry is still the Television. As the major device and biggest screen in your home, it is the most sought after territory for viewer audience, ownership and controlling content. This conference will review several of the key technologies associated with getting content up on that screen.
The program is separated into two halves - technology related to connectivity for the screen, and technology for content creation/distribution and quality of experience for the images on the screen.
The program is being led by two keynotes – (1) SMPTE on the new directions and standards for the HEVC (H.265) Codec and UltraHD (aka 4K tv), and (2) Harris Broadcast on the technology an requirements for managing second screen content as part of and in synchronization with standard broadcast.
Featuring live demos, talks and Keynotes on 4K Ultra HDTV!
