In order to successfully peek into the future one must understand the past. Have you ever been asked what sort of television you had when you were young, in order to guess your age? Throughout history television has been redefined for the generations as technology evolved from
  • black and white to colour
  • 4:3 to 16:9
  • cathode ray tubes to flat panels
  • public service to advertising funded
  • standard definition through to ultra-high definition
  • being a few channels to being hundreds
  • being free-to-air only to incorporating paid-for offerings
  • being a scheduled broadcast experience to being an experience that could then be recorded and now is available on demand.
At present industries are more competitive and diverse than ever before. They embrace and drive change faster and faster. There however is one constant throughout, and it is the reason why we watch at all: The Power of The Story

What IS the Future of TV?

The two-day conference will be opened by Lisa Perkins, the Research and Innovation Director for Adastral Park.

We will hear from fantastic keynote speakers coming from all four areas which are the building blocks of Television:
  • Story-telling
  • Delivery
  • Production, and
  • Consumption
We will take time to discuss the well known trends - including all the good and bad that comes along, and we will hopefully discover new viewpoints during our breakout and meet and mingle sessions, to take away as inspiration.
