TORONTO - The Canadian Satellite Users Association (CSUA) today announced the details for its 11th Canadian Digital Broadcasting Summit. The two-day conference will be held in Toronto on February 1 and 2, 2005.

The Conference theme, "Reality Bytes Back", will reflect the overall consumer reaction to the deployment of digital television. "A major consumer implication of digital broadcasting is the ability to watch what they want, where they want, when they want and on any device they want. What some have called the personalization of communication," said Alliance Atlantis' Harvey Rogers, chair of the conference committee.

Following a keynote describing this personalization trend, a MuchMusic VJ will quiz a panel of young people on their leading edge desire for broadcasting. A series of sessions will then examine industry capability for the delivery of consumer demands.

Market trends, including original research will be presented to see if the industry is on track with consumer expectations. A panel led by CRTC staffers will look at new regulatory implications in the digital environment. The final session have a wrap of the newest consumer products - some not yet off the drawing board.

The summit will also have keynote speakers at each meal function and video clips throughout the event with comments from industry leaders.

The CSUA Awards Dinner will be held on February 1 with hot Canadian comedian Derek Edwards entertaining the delegates.
