The technological and social changes happening within television (from YouTube to 18DoughtyStreet, Current TV to Joost) together with the increasing democratization of the medium are obvious. Likewise, the inherent conflicts for those running a television operation are equally clear; balancing being commercially viable, technologically up-to-date, creative, and maintaining audience interest and participation. Less clear is what to do about it all.
Bringing together some of the people who have looked these challenges in the eye. We will discuss how the latest technologies are already being harnessed (socially, politically and technically), how commercial, creative and operational demands have
been met and what possibilities we might expect in the future.
