“Because of digital technology, multiple industry sectors are converging, and we have a lot to talk about on the creative side, technology side and the business side,” says IMERSA co-founder Dan Neafus, director of the Gates Planetarium. “Everyone wants to see more viable business models for production, distribution and exhibition. This Summit will be a conversation where we can share the wisdom, look at what works and what needs to be done differently, what tools exist and what tools still need to be developed or improved – and move forward.”
The 2012 IMERSA Summit is set to take place 3-5 February 2012 at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science (DMNS). “Lessons from our past, Visualizing our future – Winning solutions for the digital dome” is the theme. The two-and-a-half-day Summit is organized by IMERSA (Immersive Media, Entertainment, Research, Science & Arts) – a nonprofit trade group formed in 2008 to boost the adoption and creative application of the digital dome and other immersive media formats.
