Looking for a way to get your message to a targeted audience

  1. 1. Looking for a way to get your message to a targeted audience?
  2. 2. I’d like to introduce you to the Iowa DTV Symposium, an educational seminar hosted annually by Iowa Public Television. The Iowa DTV Symposium draws engineers and technicians, digital content creators and educators from all over the United States to Des Moines, Iowa, to learn practical applications and problem solutions for implementing digital media technology. Attendees are offered two concurrent program tracks: one designed to educate content creators on working with digital media and the second track for engineers working to implement digital media technologies in their facilities. The two and a half-day program features presentations and demonstrations by leading industry professionals. The presentations are real-world solution-based and provide the attendee with valuable information and insights regarding a wide range of DTV topics. Over the last few years, the Iowa DTV Symposium has grown from a small technical seminar to a multimedia and multidiscipline technology education showcase that draws over 400 media professionals from all over the United States and is still growing. So why do we do this? The mission of Iowa Public Television is education, therefore, the DTV Symposium is an excellent occasion to accomplish this objective. Like all broadcasters, Iowa Public Television is in the process of implementing DTV on our statewide transmitter network and converting our origination facilities to handle high-definition television, multicasting, datacasting, interactivity, and a multitude of other technologies that are all part of the DTV experience. This conversion will require our people to learn about and understand the new technologies, and the DTV Symposium allows us an opportunity to learn and educate. Attendance to the Iowa DTV Symposium is free to all registrants and is open to commercial and non-commercial broadcasters, production houses, free lance consultants, educators and anyone who has a stake in learning about how DTV technology will impact their profession. This is where you come in. We are always on the lookout for presenters who can educate attendees on current and relevant solutions and trends in the digital arena. If you are interested in presenting at the 2005 Iowa DTV Symposium, I would like to hear from you. Please contact me at 515.242.3116 or hayes@iptv.org. Thank you for your time, William T. Hayes Director of Engineering and Technology Iowa Public Television
