How relevant are the new consumer products and solutions coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show to the TV industry now facing an unpredictable digital future?
Ken Blakeslee, Chair of Webmobility and contextual technologies guru, reviews general trends, what caught his eye in terms of gadgets, hot topics and how the ecosystem and real, consumer friendly solutions are emerging.
He then joins Nigel Walley, MD Decipher Digital Research who chairs a formidable panel including Martyn Suker, Head of Production Innovation, ITV, Anthony Karydis, Founder & CEO, Mativision, and Sarel Madziya, MA student and digital native, to debate the creative impact on broadcasting and production of inexpensive digital consumer technologies, and 360⁰ storytelling (a literal revolution).

Steve Dann, MD Amplified Robot, rounds off the evening with a try-for-yourself area of 3D360⁰ storytelling
