MESA Europe Post CES Review to focus on M&E Show Highlights

Published January 10, 2017

With the doors now closed on CES 2017, the dust is now settling after what was once again a very high profile event, attracting news headlines around the globe.

Inevitably, many of the headlines focus on the weird and wonderful gadgets and the more unusual applications of leading edge technology, which often distract from the important announcements and significant product breakthroughs that emerged.

For the media and entertainment industry there was much on show and discussed, that will inevitably start to filter through into products and services for the European market in the months and years  ahead. As Ultra High Definition and High Dynamic Range take hold, as enhanced audio expands into a wider range of devices and becomes even more ‘enhanced’ and as the challenges of web delivered TV services and the shift away from linear content viewing continue, the industry continues to respond to the challenges presented by offering an interesting array of creative technology based solutions.

Meanwhile, voice recognition is showing signs that it is coming of age while developments in the field of VR and AR (Virtual and Augmented Reality) are beginning to demonstrate real revenue generating potential.

At next week’s MESA Europe Post CES Review  a number of senior industry executives and experienced industry observers will talk delegates through the highs and lows that they took away from the show and share their insights into the announcements and product launches that are likely to have an impact on the European M&E business.

Spaces at this breakfast meeting, which takes place on 18th January at the Ray Dolby Theatre in Central London are strictly limited but a few seats remain for people who have not yet committed.
