Session Description

Spoiler Alert! Technology is Transforming TV. Today’s water cooler conversations about TV shows now include a new element – how did you watch the show? Stream it to your smartphone, tablet or game console? Watch it on your smart TV via an app or a cool new streaming device? Technology and TV are clearly a match made for each other. Hear from some of tech’s biggest names about the new services and experiences they are now unleashing. Plus! In its debut on the Imagine Park stage, BitTorrent – yes, BitTorrent! -- will reveal its new “BitTorrent Live” platform, powered by its peer-to-peer streaming protocol and including a lineup of announced-on-the-spot programming partners. Then, see the launch by Portuguese operator NOS of its next-gen TV product, which includes 4K video and a breakthrough user experience (UX) designed by Espial and powered by the RDK.
