PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- June 24, 2013 -- The IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) today announced that online registration for the 2013 IEEE Broadcast Symposium is now open. This year's conference will take place at The Westgate Hotel in San Diego Oct. 9-11, offering attendees the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge, interact with, and learn directly from thought leaders and experts on a variety of compelling topics including cellular broadcasting technology, mobile DTV systems, streaming content delivery, non-real time (NRT) broadcast services, and second-screen technologies.
Keeping with its tradition of bringing pertinent, quality education to the broadcast community, the 2013 IEEE Broadcast Symposium will play host to a variety of technology sessions and tutorials, enabling attendees to get a closer look at the implications of next-generation broadcast platforms such as those being contemplated by ATSC 3.0 and FoBTV.
