Convergence vs. Collision: The Future of Personalized Experiential Media

 

Convergence vs. Collision: The Future of Personalized Experiential Media

Derek Woodgate

 

This is an overviewConvergence vs. Collision of a recent presentation by our President, Derek Woodgate.

In an increasingly post‐broadcast world, we are constantly celebrating the values of digital convergence. The multiplicity of interconnected technologies and devices, peer-aggregated media, open source, and collaborative design and development have created integrated communication, media, and entertainment opportunities, augmented by the greater unification of compatible standards.

 

This presentation considers two critical, distinctive strategic possibilities for the future of personalized experiential media. The first—promoting the continuation and expansion of interconnectivity and extension of the “anything, anytime, anyplace, anyhow” trend—we have been experiencing over the past decade. The second strategy amplifies the complexity and hazards of convergence, when too much simply leads to a collision of technologies, cost efficiencies, user ineffectiveness, and more.

 

The presentation looks at the whole field of potential future experiential media with the human at the center. It discusses the role of emotive feedback, affective systems, and invisible, intuitive interfaces and their impact on new distribution methods, new revenue strategies, and changing modes of audience engagement. It also demonstrates ways in which emphasis on the human will give more power to the user in creating more personalized multisensory delivery mechanisms, as well as developments in fully immersive, self‐generating, and responsive environments, metaverses, telepresence, and augmentation through AR, AI, and sensor networks.

 

Finally, we shall see how future experiential media will influence consumer behavior and societal change over the next decade.

 

The presentation covers a multitude of emerging technologies and behaviors that extend the potential of sensory enhancement and immersive environments, such as: adaptive projection maps, holographic overlays, hybrid and imaginary spaces, simulated worlds, and programmed atmospheres, as well as the seamless fusion between entertainment and communication and the seamless movement between real and virtual. The material demonstrates how such events are designed to be adaptive to personal aesthetics, imagination, moods, and emotions in order to facilitate new approaches to exploration, innovation, and learning.

 

Future Entertainment and Events Lab (FEEL)

After a period of intensive discussion and collaboration, Derek Woodgate , President of The Futures Lab, Inc. and Maggie Duval, the CEO of Plutopia Productions Inc, have decided upon a merger of the two organizations under The Futures Lab, Inc. banner. The new business unit within The Futures Lab, Inc. is titled FEEL (Future Entertainment and Events Lab), will be located in Austin, Texas. This is an apt name given Derek’s extensive consulting, authoring and speaking work over the past decade on the future of entertainment, media and communications and his input as Chief Creative Officer at Plutopia Productions. Derek has become recognized as an authority on the application of emerging and immersive technologies and the changing human in the design and production of experiential entertainment with his creation of what are termed “Sense Events.” These multisensory, immersive, interactive events show in practice many of the wonderful, creative inventions and innovations that are under way to future‐proof and augment our future, with content often reflecting ideas resulting from The Futures Lab’s consulting assignments.

The Futures Lab, Inc is in it seventeenth year of operation and will continue its global consulting activities for a myriad of categories and world-renowned clients, extending its network both in terms of territories and personnel. With sister companies/partner offices now in eight countries and having conducted consulting work in over 20 countries worldwide, the new set up will enable FEEL to expand it services which include the creation, design, content acquisition, rendering, curation, production, implementation and marketing of future focused ‘sense events’ into new territories. Plutopia events in the US have always had an international character, involving artists from across the globe.

Maggie was CEO of Plutopia Productions for six years. In addition to the revolutionary five SXSWi and two SXSW Music related ‘sense events’ that she produced during that period, Maggie also created and produced Showdown at the Unobtainium: Tesla vs. Edison and numerous other events featuring famous futures-related speakers and performers, such as Bruce Sterling, Cory Doctorow, Douglas Ruhskoff, etc.

Whilst most of the existing Plutopia Productions team will be integrated into FEEL, Maggie has already confirmed the addition of Randall Aretoo Squires as the Technical Producer. Randall was the technical producer on the Plutopia FutureMusic Summit 2012 and Maggie’s Showdown at the Unobtainium.

These changes coincide with Derek’s recent appointment as Consultant in Residence at DAEL: the Digital Arts and Entertainment Lab at Georgia State University.
