Empowering visionaries through technology

Attending guests include Frédéric Auburtin, Director of Paris, je t'aime; Sandro Monetti, Chief Operating Officer of Big Screen Entertainment Group USA; Francis Hellyer, co-founder and chief executive officer of London Theatre Direct, and more.
“Technology is constantly changing how art is made, displayed, viewed, shared, and consumed,” said Lian Zilong, IMC Senior Director, TCL. “It is now a go-to medium for connecting the world with the universal language of art. Evolving from monochrome TVs to color TVs and beyond, we have experienced exciting waves of change at every turn. Today, we continue to push the boundaries of creativity. Our efforts are exemplified by the recent launch of our TCL C84 Mini LED TV series that archives a new plane in visual immersion, and our TCL NXTWEAR S wearable display glasses that offer a private viewing experience and unprecedented freedom.”
