LOS ANGELES—The 2016 HPA Tech Retreat is now accepting proposals for presentations for the main program and breakfast roundtables taking place Feb. 17-19. Presentation topics may include anything related to moving images and associated sounds, including areas like augmented reality, energy use for HDR TV sets, soundfields, terabit transmissions, x-rays in 8K and more.
No formal submissions are required, simply provide a sentence or two on the topic and HPA will reach out if it needs more info. Presentations in the main program are typically a half-hour, including set-up and Q&A; requests must be submitted for a different duration. HPA is also accepting proposals for panels, which run longer. Panel proposers are expected to provide the moderator and panelists. Presenters, moderators and panelists may attend sessions for free and get a discount on the full retreat.
