lynda.com events has added Dale Herigstad to the interactive all-star roster at the D×3 Conference & Expo taking place in Boston, May 15-18, 2007. Herigstad, Chief Creative Officer at Schematic, has been leading the interactive and broadcast design charge to adopt new ways of visualizing content while incorporating users' new view of time. To illustrate the shifts in configuring space and time in a world of rich media interfaces, Herigstad will use work created for Universal for the HD DVD platform and several EA Sports projects to explore design and user experience.
"TV is in the midst of being redefined, from user-generated content, to subscription services, to recording devices on your set top and desktop" said Lynda Weinman, CEO lynda.com events. "It's up to interactive designers to reconfigure the user interface for time-shifted and on-demand viewing. Dale brings a seasoned perspective to the field born from his deep experience in traditional formats. Schematic is behind some of the most innovative television interfaces in the industry, and it will be a giant treat to D×3 attendees to share some time with a thought leader like Dale."
Herigstad has an extensive background in broadcast design and branding, and has pioneered advanced navigation systems for interactive TV and connected screens that feature a unique spatial context approach. He was honored with one of the first ITVT Interactive TV Leadership Awards and has 4 Emmys in broadcast design and interactive TV.
"New content mediums are emerging from this work, content that blurs the line between TV and games," said Herigstad. "My screen work includes both advanced content-finding interfaces and explores new content and advertising models--ideas I want to share with D×3 attendees."
