Politics, Television & Innovation: How & Why

Politics, Television & Innovation: How & Why

Speakers

In the session, I will take the audience through some key moments in live coverage of politics from the first computer projections in the 1950's through today. Using many video clips, we will see that, much like with the olympics, election coverage every 4 years provides the opportunity and the drive to innovate and create new ways to display data, election results, and analysis. Television needs to be its best every 2 & 4 years, and producers keep moving forward.
