MPEG Pioneer to Keynote NAB2003 Engineering Conference
Leonardo Chiariglione, VP of Multimedia for the Research Centre of Telecom Italia Group, will give the opening keynote for the NAB2003 Broadcast Engineering Conference April 6 in Las Vegas.
Chiariglione will address the current struggle between content creators, distributors and users and how that conflict prohibits the exploitation of digital technology's business opportunities. His goal is to create a greater balance between the parties by identifying what civil liberties and business aspects need to be preserved, letting technology provide the answers and legislation to fill in the gaps.
Chiariglione worked on the creation of the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), which developed current standards for digital and audio video creation for the Web, DTV, mp3, DVDs and other multimedia technology.
