The MIPTV convention in Cannes starts today and the NAB show in Las Vegas will soon be upon us. At least they managed to avoid a scheduling conflict this year, so it’s at least possible to attend both these key conventions. Let’s hope there are no travel problems this time. We’ll be watching with interest for announcements from both events. Once again informitv is pleased to support the MPEGIF Master Class at NAB. Among the topics for discussion next Monday is whether broadband will be the delivery mechanism of future television. In our view, the future of television is definitely connected to the internet. Seven years after we launched informitv at MIPTV and NAB, that future is getting closer.
