HPA Tech Retreat Unveils Main Conference Program

The Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) has announced details for the main conference program of the upcoming 2023 HPA Tech Retreat, now in its 28th year. Taking place February 20-23, the event will return to the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, CA. Registration for the event is now open.

A bellwether gathering of the most prominent creatives, technologists and executives leading the future of entertainment technology and content creation, the HPA Tech Retreat is composed of TR-X (Monday), the Supersession (Tuesday), and the main conference program (Wednesday and Thursday), which anchors the four-day conference with a curated series of presentations focused on the most exciting, pressing, and fascinating issues confronting the industry today.

Mark Schubin, who has steered the Tech Retreat Conference program for two and a half decades, said, “We received a true abundance of riches this year. Not only were there more proposals than ever, but they were of exceptionally high quality. Look for presentations from four major studios talking about some of the most important projects. You will see presentations on immersive entertainment like MSG Sphere, as well as virtual production, security, and cloud technologies.”

Changes to the program and speakers may occur and will be noted on the HPA website.

The Innovation Zone, a highlight of the Tech Retreat and an evolution of the famous HPA Tech Retreat demo room, has grown significantly and will include groundbreaking presentations and demos beyond the walls of the traditional Innovation Zone space. Three of the four days of the Tech Retreat also feature dynamic breakfast roundtables with industry leading companies and experts speaking and leading discussions on a broad variety of topics of interest.

Intentionally set in the desert, out of reach of the day-to-day demands of working life, the Tech Retreat fosters convivial and challenging conversations and desirable circumstances for professional networking. The schedule for the entire event is available at hpaonline.com and will be updated regularly.

The Tech Retreat is a limited attendance event and is expected to sell out once again, as it does every year. Details for the Supersession and TR-X will be announced shortly.

Seth Hallen, president of HPA, said, “There’s always great anticipation leading up to the reveal of each year’s main program lineup, and this year’s sessions deserve all the hype. I personally can’t wait to hear about these important topics, and meet the panelists and our attendees. Members of the HPA community constantly remind us how much they look forward to the Tech Retreat which many call the most informative and collaborative event in our industry. February has become the heart of the technology calendar and I look forward to seeing our community in Palm Springs.”

Hiltron to Show Latest-Generation HMAM LEO Motorised Satcom Flyaway at GovSatCom 2023

Hiltron Communications has chosen the upcoming GovSatCom 2023 in Luxembourg at which to promote its latest-generation HMAM LEO high speed motorised tracking antenna mount. The event will be held in the European Convention Center on February 23rd.

Based on over 10 years of Hiltron experience in designing, manufacturing and integrating motorised satellite mounts, HMAM LEO is capable of accommodating parabolic antennas of up to 2.4 metres diameter. Supported on a high-stability ground pillar, it incorporates the computing resources needed to track satellites using the NORAD TLE (two-line element) data format which defines satellite locations based on their location and velocity. The system can lock onto the desired LEO satellite within the approximately 10 minute timespan where the target satellite is in sight.
