Next week is the Edinburgh International Television Festival and the keynote by Dr Eric Schmidt of Google is keenly anticipated. We’ll have coverage on informitv although there’ll be no newsletter next Monday as it’s a public holiday in England. We’re already looking forward to the annual IBC tradeshow in Amsterdam. So here are a couple of dates for your diary during the show. On Saturday 10 September there’s a networking reception hosted by MPEGIF presenting advances in Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP or DASH. On Sunday I’ll be moderating a free business briefing on Social TV, introducing new research from GfK. Further details can be found in the events section of the informitv web site.
