The Convergence of Media: Changing the Way You Live!



  • 2001 CSPA Annual Conference

    Are you ready for the new world of media convergence?

    Co-sponsored by SDForum - SDForum members get the member rate! For detailed information, please visit the CSPA conference page.

    With the advancement of networking and communications technologies, we are seeing the convergence of Internet, telephone, broadcast, cable, and wireless technologies. The borders among the different media channels are disappearing. You can watch interactive TV delivered over your phone line; or you can hook your computer to the Internet through the cable network. The media convergence will profoundly change how we work and live. It presents an unprecedented business opportunity for those who can master the diverse areas of technologies and build truly compelling mixed-media applications.

    In CSPA Annual Conference 2001: The Convergence of Media, we will explore the implications and business opportunities in this new era of convergence. Prominent speakers in different segments of this area, from infrastructure suppliers to content providers will provide you insight and hopefully inspire ideas on how to embrace and capitalize on this revolution.
