CES 2018 Coverage, Day 1
January 8, 2018
Turner employees and talent were among the tens of thousands of people who gathered in Las Vegas for CES 2018. CES is the world’s largest gathering for those interested in the intersection between business and consumer technologies.
Turner Art Installation
Outside the Aria Wedding Chapel, attendees were enraptured by the Turner MAKERS mural. The dynamic work of art features the world premiere of the ArtBots, a robotic graffiti platform created by artist Scott Peterman.
Over the course of CES 2018, ArtBots will create one of the largest robotically executed murals ever attempted, celebrating Turner's unique ability to connect with fans through a massive piece of fan art.
“The Next Generation of OTT” Panel
Richard Steiner, SVP – Digital Products & Services, Turner, was one of the featured speakers for “The Next Generation of OTT” at Digital Hollywood.
The over-the-top (OTT) marketplace has exploded with new consumer offerings and created its own ecosystem within the TV industry – access to a plethora of data, innovative user interface capabilities, and new consumption behaviors. Richard discussed how technology has opened the door for innovation and how to create a winning OTT model in an evolving space.
