When will it be a 4K world?

The industry is buzzing as technologies for 4K emerge. With four times the resolution of 1080P (the clarity and picture quality in each direction), 4K creates a stunning viewing experience for film, and new possibilities for broadcast and display applications. What are the benefits of shooting in 4K today? What are challenges with implementation? When will distribution of 4K be available? Is it sooner than you think? What might all this cost? Hear a panel of experts from across the 4K ecosystem discuss the pro and cons, and the long-term potential for 4K as a trend in this industry.

“The Future of Satellite Communications: New Developments, New Technologies and New Markets”

The satellite industry has survived and thrived through the downturn in the global economy.

This panel will bring together industry leaders who will discuss future developments in broadband satellites, HTS, mobile applications, and new markets.

Participants of this panel discussion include: Susan Irwin, President, Euroconsult USA, SATCON Conference Chair; Steve Collar, CEO, O3b Networks Limited; Pradman P. Kaul, CEO, Hughes Communications, Inc.; and Leo Mondale, Managing Director, Inmarsat Global Xpress.
