Join executives from the technology community in Silicon Valley as well as the premium content community in Hollywood to learn more about the future of entertainment technology in our homes and pick up some tips for what to buy for the Holidays!
Specific topics to be discussed will include:
- How will video entertainment be consumed in the home of the future?
- Is the premium video content industry headed in the same direction as audio, which is rapidly -moving towards MP3 and iTunes downloads as its primary delivery vehicle - and away from CD/retail delivery?
-Will the DVD's successor, the high-definition Blu-ray disc, be widely adopted by consumers or is it headed the way of the 8-track tape?
- Will an Internet-connected unifying media server emerge, recording and downloading all the entertainment content needs for a home's residents?
