The Production Technology Seminar is one of the EBU's flagship events for technology, offering a mix of high quality presentations, in-depth tutorials and cutting-edge technology demos.
There are few, if any, other conferences that offer the same breadth and depth of coverage of recent and future developments in media production technology away from the hype of commercial conferences and trade shows. In recent years, this event has consistently been a sellout.
PTS 2018 will feature two and a half days of presentations and tutorials, demos and discussions, with plenty of opportunities for the peer-to-peer conversations that make such events so valuable. Whether you are interested in a specific area – immersive content, IP production, new production workflows, audio technologies – or are seeking a broad overview of the production technology field, this is the event for you.
The programme for PTS 2018 is currently in development. The programme from PTS 2017 will give you an idea of the scope of the conference; and EBU Members can sign in to view videos of the presentations.
