The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) is uniting three experts on the TV industry on one “Super Panel” that will tackle the future of television, as the industry adapts to changing consumer tastes, new expectations and evolving technology.
At the 2015 ATSC Broadcast Television Conference on May 14, the three top industry executives — Gordon Smith, president-CEO of the NAB; Michael Powell, president-CEO of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association; and Gary Shapiro, president-CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association — will come together.
The Future of Television Super Panel, bringing these three industry luminaries onstage together for the first time, will be moderated by Richard E. Wiley, chairman of WileyRein and former FCC chairman and former chairman of the FCC’s Advisory Committee on Advanced Television Service,.
Registration for the May 14 conference is open now.
“Every pundit seems to have an opinion about where TV is going, with new technologies creating new business opportunities, with a new regulatory environment, and with Internet connectivity having a profound influence on broadcasters, pay-TV operators, and device manufacturers,” said ATSC President Mark Richer. “At the 2015 ATSC Broadcast TV Conference, we are thrilled to bring together Gordon Smith, Michael Powell and Gary Shapiro to share their views on the future of television. We’re asking these three remarkable industry leaders to share their predictions about the future, and while they may not always agree, I am certain that ATSC conference attendees will get a well-rounded view of how the television landscape is changing.”
