Downstairs in the Altman Building at CE Week Exhibits
Private for Attendees of Your Next TV Conference: 1:45pm – 5 pm, June 23
1:30-2:30 June 24
12:00-1:00 June 25
With all the talk about revolutionary improvements in home entertainment displays (whether it be 4K/UHD, curved TVs, Smart TV, etc.), one technology seems to be rising above the rest: high dynamic range. For three years, Your Next TV conferences have spoken about “more than just pixels …”; but this year it is time to go beyond just talk, we are going to show you something.
Two industry insiders will explain and illustrate this compelling new technical and creative tool and explain why it is a feature that both display manufacturers and creative content producers are working to bring this experience into your living room —really soon now. With the new potential for enhanced experience, this demonstration will also illustrate some of the challenges that hardware and content will need to address.
You will be very sad if you miss this demonstration.
