The other day, I got an email about the TV Electronics Conference 2006. The event will take place on Thursday, June 22, 2006 at the Hyatt Santa Clara in California.
Flat panel televisions are one of the fastest growing revenue categories in consumer electronics. TV electronics represent one of the most exciting opportunities for semiconductor manufacturers as the 200 million unit TV market goes digital. Until now, there has never been a conference with all TV electronics technologies (tuners, demodulators, MPEG decoders, video processing, audio processing and input/output) under one roof.
Leading TV IC companies will present their views regarding the development and evolution of this exciting market, top financial analysts will examine and discuss the TV IC investment opportunities and DisplaySearch analysts will present their views regarding the current state and future outlook of the TV and TV IC industries.
The intelligence and data you’ll receive in this one-day event are worth thousands of dollars. Whatever your TV questions, you’ll have an opportunity to interact with and learn from leading industry players.
