Paris 2024 Olympics: opportunities for the TV industry

The City of Paris and France are in the running for the organisation of the 2024 Olympic Games. Seine-Saint-Denis is an important bid partner with several sites planned to host the events, including the Media Village, which will concentrate the dedicated technical resources made available to professionals from around the world.  On this occasion, we propose in the context of Screen4All and UltraHday an afternoon of conferences which will be centered at the same time on a feedback of experiences on the recent sporting events of the last months, by taking the focus of the technological innovation and we will make a review the present and the future of Ultra High Definition.

Euro 2016, Olympic Games, Roland Garros, ... The sport continues its developments in Ultra High Definition. For the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, Japan plans to capture the main sports in 8K. This conference will review the present and propose a forward-looking vision for the coming years on content production and distribution.
