Of Broadcasters and Game Masters
Games and Television Summit
Since the early 90s, interactivity has been a serious issue in the television industry. As we know today, interactive television was never truly realized, the Internet having absorbed most proprietary technologies relevant to the field. Nowadays, interactive content and innovative business models abound at the intersection between television and digital games: transmedial programs adopt and develop gamified elements; broadcasters serve as developers, publishers and distributors of digital games; marketing agencies use games to promote television channels and programs; and novel technologies are shared and expanded by both worlds – just to name a few examples!
“Of Broadcasters and Game Masters” aims to explore the exciting junctures and synchronicities of television and digital games by presenting and discussing cutting-edge projects and promising experiments. Experts and audience members alike will have the opportunity to critically assess the current state of this field as well as discuss its myriad potentialities.
