In what is set to be the biggest IBC ever, the conference will kick off this Saturday with a live transatlantic transmission between Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation SKG, and Christie, a leading provider of visual solutions.
The interview is being conducted in 3D to showcase Christie's new projector, the CP2000-XB which uses RealD technology.
