PC-TV convergence is getting closer everyday as new, improved products enter the market. It is therefore no surprise that industry experts would want to discuss it. (I mean, you and I like talking about home connectivity so why wouldn’t they?)
DisplaySearch, the world leader in display market research and consulting, is hosting a panel discussion on home connectivity at its upcoming 2007 HDTV conference on October 10-11 in Los Angeles.
“Home connectivity has become an increasingly important topic, as convergence finally nears reality and we experience an increased desire to seamlessly transfer content from a PC to TV, leading to new innovations in connectivity,” said Paul Gagnon, DisplaySearch’s Director of North America TV Market Research. “New options now exist to transfer high-bandwidth, full HD content between devices, but it’s critical to know what considerations need to be made when planning products that feature these capabilities.”
The panel will feature executives from various consumer electronics manufacturers and will focus on new technologies being developed to connect the PC and TV both with and without wires.
The panel will also include a discussion of obstacles hindering convergence including the limitations of current devices, the low picture quality of content on popular websites such as YouTube, and the headaches of wireless networks.
