The 2016 NAB Show will feature the new Satellite Industry Forum, a one-day program produced in partnership with the Satellite Industry Association (SIA).
Held Tuesday, April 19, the forum will focus on the role the satellite industry plays in broadcasting and delivering high quality video content to and from anywhere on the planet – on land, sea or in the air.
Mark D. Dankberg, co-founder of ViaSat Inc. will deliver the forum’s keynote address titled, “The Data Revolution in Satellite Communications” at 1:00 p.m. in S225 of the Las Vegas Convention Center on Tuesday, April 19.
Earlier this year, ViaSat announced plans to develop the first global broadband communications platform designed to deliver affordable, high-speed Internet connectivity and video streaming.
Dankberg is an industry expert in aerospace, defense, and satellite communications, and is the leading expert for a new generation of high-capacity satellite systems.
“In a connected world where customers of all types are demanding increased global content and services, we are proud to organize the inaugural Satellite Industry Forum at NAB Show,” said Tom Stroup, president of the Satellite Industry Association.
“From providing the world with global broadband and in-flight entertainment to the delivery of Ultra HD services, satellites continue to feed the worldwide thirst to be connected, and satellite companies continue to deliver ground-breaking new services designed to further connect the world for decades to come.”
In addition to the keynote address, the Satellite Industry Forum will feature three panel discussions that address the role of satellites in the delivery of ultra-HD content, satellite broadband technology and delivery, and in-flight satellite entertainment and connectivity for the aviation industry.
NAB Show, held April 16-21, 2016 in Las Vegas, is an electronic media show covering the creation, management and delivery of content across all platforms.
