The Tommy Flowers Spring Conference (March 2018) – Attracts Its Largest Audience Yet !March 12, 2018
A jam-packed audience of well over 100 people attended the fourth Tommy Flowers Institute Conference, across the two days, exploring the Future of TV.
Industry experts including Ericsson and OFCOM; together with academia and post-graduate researchers joined senior representatives from some of the World’s biggest TV and production companies, including the BBC and BT Sport. It was also brilliant to have support from our Innovation Martlesham companies: Sandvine, Huawei, Cisco; NetComm Wireless; Coderus; ADVA and Diometer – many of whom gave technology demo sessions.
BT’s Lisa Perkins, the Research and Innovation Director for Adastral Park opened the conference. Lisa provided a great overview of the topic, highlighting that even with rapid technological change, there is always the fundamental desire to tell a good story well – people want to communicate, transact and be entertained.
Attendees were encouraged to think about changes in the delivery of TV; the way the production of TV will change and addressed the ways that we understand how our audience will change.
Sharing and communicating these ideas with each other certainly proved to be a very interactive conference.
