As we've written and discussed at VRARA events, content creation will be a critical part of VR/AR ecosystems. Everyone is talking about the gadgetry -- which is also important -- but content could be a gating factor to the true size and pace of VR/AR opportunities.
New Content Horizons is set against this backdrop. Taking place in L.A. May 16th & 17th, it will explore business opportunities in home entertainment and broadcast sectors. The goal is to explore services, hardware and content plays, many of which will shape VR/AR landscapes.
Confirmed speakers so far include Twitter, Google, Samsung, Turner Sports, Intel, NextVR and several others. [From the event's own collateral], it will also cover:
- How Robust is the Traditional Pay-TV Business Model?
- The Evolution of Subscription Video on Demand - Where Now?
- The Future of Premium Sports
- Embracing the Hollywood Studio Challenge
- Unleashing the Potential for Kids Content
- Monetisation through Social and Discovery
- How will Audio Enhance the Next Generation Video Experience?
- 4K, UHD and Beyond
- Virtual and Mixed Reality
We hope to see you there.
