An excited audience attending the talks 

On Monday, October 12, professionals gathered to discuss issues related to post-production and visual effects, two industries that are dramatically changing and are in the limelight from both an economic and political perspective. Throughout the day, talks and round table discussions allowed participants to take stock of the market and consider potential development strategies with French public and private experts, with support from several European companies.

The second day’s talks were dedicated to 360° virtual reality and UHD. Screen4All offered, for the first time in France, an event covering virtual reality and gathering key players on the market. Many participants came to learn about the topic and meet over 40 French and international experts. Meanwhile, the Ultra-HDay, a series of talks dedicated to UHD/4K, provided a platform for Europe’s most active professionals in the fields of acquisition, production and screening.

The talks are available as VoD on Screen4All Forum’s website.
