Entertainment Technology in the Internet Age: The Race is On!

by @ 3:48 pm. Filed under ALL, Computers/Software

Entertainment Technology in the Internet Age: The Race is On! June 16 – 17, 2015, at Stanford University

etia The convergence of connectivity, bandwidth, and technology improvements is rapidly expanding entertainment distribution over the web to the living room, mobile, and beyond. Often scoffed at as an inferior entertainment platform, the web is now poised to leapfrog traditional distribution mechanisms, because of the rapid pace of innovation and ability to upgrade with a software download. The concept of this conference is to explore the “old”, the “new”, and the “future” in the context of the technology requirements for delivering a compelling entertainment experience over the web. Is traditional media in danger of being overrun? Find out by joining us for this 2 day event on the beautiful Stanford campus where technical, creative, and ecosystem experts will explore how the Internet is changing entertainment and provide context to help understand technology and application trends. A must attend for engineers, creatives, and researchers focused on future of entertainment over the Internet. For more information, visit
