Axle Video, Adobe and IBM are teaming up to present free seminars highlighting new trends in the media business. One takes place on December 10 in New York City, at 353 West 46th Street. The other on December 12 in LA at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. They will start at 10am.
Video Collaboration: New Ideas will highlight a wave of technology making it possible for creative teams to be far more productive, both internally and with their clients, than has previously been possible. The focus will be on real-world applications, and Axle, which makes media management software, and its partners will be providing the opportunity for attendees to spend hands-on time with their technologies at the events, as well as ask in depth questions from the companies’ product experts.
Chris Dee, an industry consultant with management experience at major broadcasters including HBO, NBC and Disney, is the leadoff speaker at both events, said “I’m delighted to be part of this initiative to bring cutting-edge information and perspectives to media professionals in the country’s two biggest markets. It’s exciting to be part of the project and we’re looking forward to great attendance and participation by some industry leaders.”
Here is the schedule:
10am: Big Picture Overview – What’s happening across the broadcast and postproduction industries today. Chris Dee, principal at DeeTour Consulting and a pioneer of digital workflows at HBO, NBC, Discovery Channel, and Disney.
10:30am: Distributed Editing – It’s been talked about as a possibility for years, but now it’s real. Dennis Radeke will review and discuss how Adobe’s Anywhere technology lets you edit with familiar tools on lightweight workstations, far from where your high res media are stored.
11am: Easy Media Management – This used to be a contradiction in terms; we’ll explain how you can simply, affordably add media management to current workflows and shared storage. Axle Video’s Sam Bogoch will show you how to stop hunting around and start being productive!
11:30am: Truly Scalable Archiving – Archiving once involved complex user interfaces and custom setups; worst of all, vendors’ unique storage formats meant you couldn’t even exchange data. IBM’s Dave Taylor shows us how LTFS LE is making scalable, searchable, exchangeable archives a reality.
12pm: Q&A and Demos – Stay with us for an open-ended discussion in the main room, and technology demos in the foyer. We’ll make sure there’s plenty off opportunity for hands-on interaction.
