Bay Area Women in Film & Media presents:
What is it? Where is it? How can you get involved? If you thought interactive TV was nowhere to be found in this country, you were wrong. It is being deployed all over the United States on every platform (cable, satellite, the Internet, mobile phones and on CE devices in your home).
The medium of television is changing. Those changes are taking place because of new technologies and ideas breaking in the marketplace and news everyday. Knowledgeable producers and developers are actively exploring ways to create fiction and non-fiction programming incorporating new concepts such as social networking and viral advertising. Tracy Swedlow, editor-in-chief of InteractiveTV Today itvt, the publication "of record" for the ITV industry, will lead a panel of experts who will discuss what is happening today, how to recognize what interactive television is and is not, and how you might be able to participate fully in the TV of Tomorrow. (Click here to see Method's rebrand of itvtv's TV of Tomorrow conference.)
