How do you turn a great idea into a disruptive technology that becomes an industry standard? The Digital Catapult and the DTG will try to answer this question.

DTG has been taking new technology into the mass market for 20 years, and the Global TV Innovation Detonator seeks to explode the myths and explore the evolution of big new ideas in broadcasting: usability, ultra HD, mobile video and future distribution networks.

i2 media research, with its 12 years' experience, is among the expert companies invited to talk at this free half-day morning seminar, that has the aim to encourage creative technologists to find the opportunities to innovate in the broadcast video experience.

Speakers from the DTG and our UK industry partners will include:

• Professor Jonny Freeman, Goldsmiths University/i2 media research
• Chris Johns, Sky
• Matt Stagg, EE
• Graham Mills, DVB
• Simon Gauntlett, DTG

Start-ups, SMEs and university spin-outs/spin-ins will attend alongside DTG members representing the UK TV broadcast delivery chain, from broadcasters to TV, smartphone and receiver manufacturers.

The DTG Global TV Innovation Detonator is free to attend and will be held at the Digital Catapult Centre, 101 Euston Road, London NW1 2RA, from 9:30am - 12.30pm.
