Digital entertainment is about to become more dynamic, more vibrant and more lifelike than ever before. When it comes to delivering exciting and compelling entertainment experiences, rich visual content is critical: this is the promise of High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology.

Delivering the best and most consistent content experience regardless of device or format is imperative for any network service provider (NSP). In this webinar, we will discuss how NSPs can enable quick, smooth consumer adoption of new immersive content by providing a timely, consistent HDR experience for viewers who have made the transition, while continuing to serve their SDR customers. We will also cover the challenges and opportunities of the emerging HDR market, along with a look at how to boost distribution efficiency and eliminate the need for costly infrastructure upgrades.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
