    This sounds interesting. It would be better if you expand a little on the details of the session.

    • Are you going to focus towards the bigger picture or are you going to talk about what constitutes the experience on TV?

    • Is the session going to be about the designing process or is it going to delve into the technology requred for it?

    <p>Is it only about UI design or HTML,CSS and javascript also involved in the process of “Design for TV” ?</p>

    @Jitendra - It will focus more on UI and UX design. Nothing to do with coding.

    - The focus will be more on what constitutes the experience design for a TV and the nuances of interacting with a TV interface.
    - The content will focus on the design aspects more (including UX concerns), design process may not be discussed so much. Nothing to do with technology at all.

    It’s interesting, but I’m reserving my upvote because I’m unsure how many in the audience need to design for TV. Could this be a 15 minute crisp talk?

    Sure Kiran. I am fine with a shorter presentation as well.
