Digital entertainment, home networking and ‘digital hubs’

One of the industries the Hong Kong SAR Government has identified as having good potential to develop in Hong Kong based upon the territory’s past history in the film and toys sectors and in its current excellence in telecommunications infrastructure, is the digital entertainment industry. The papers that accompany this report, one by the Information Technology and Broadcasting Bureau (ITBB), two by Dr Lily Chiang and the TIF background briefing paper, develop the arguments in more detail and should be consulted. This Forum sponsored by Intel Corporation, and supported by Bloomberg, is organized as a contribution to this Government initiative, to explore the issues involved in greater detail, and to understand how the fast growing digital entertainment sector is helping drive the demand for broadband to the home, and what network support is available to meet this demand. The discussion ranges over two areas of interest. The first session examines the state of the digital entertainment industry in Hong Kong; the second
examines the home networking side and the broadband infrastructure to support it.
