Creative Amsterdam at IBC: Games and screens

Datum & tijd

2013-09-16 14:00:00
The IBC shows many things and especially many screens – 8K screens with more detail than the human eye can see, connected TV sets that show new forms of interaction, advances in 3D screens that make you reconsider the viability of the medium and lots more. The IBC Future Zone for instance provides a tantalising glimpse into the future of tomorrow’s electronic media.

Amsterdam Economic Board and iMMovator Cross Media Network invite the Dutch game industry to the IBC, to learn from innovations in the broadcasting industry, and see where the game and screen industries connect.

We invite you to visit the IBC on Monday 16 September, for two special events: a 90 minute seminar on the state of games worldwide, a 2 hours tour of IBC’s most interesting exhibitors. The 'Games and screens' session starts at 13.00h, the tour starts at 15.00h.
