Solving Asset Management Challenges
For those interested in the evolving digital media ecosystem and the fundamental need for streamlined storage, join Avid’s Senior Director of Product Management Dave Colantuoni on Wednesday at 4.30pm in Salon 1 as he presents “Reinventing Content Storage to Solve Today’s and Tomorrow’s Media Workflow Challenges.” Colantuoni will outline the challenges that media professionals face with storage today, and explore technology innovations that can help overcome them. He will also describe the technology underlying Avid NEXIS, the first software-defined storage platform for media that enables true storage virtualization for any media application.
Honoring Student Filmmakers
Continuing Avid’s commitment to Education, we are proud to once again sponsor the SMPTE-HPA Student Film Festival to be held during the conference on Wednesday, October 26 at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. Student filmmakers will be competing in four categories, and award winners for each category will be announced at the Festival. The Audience Choice Award will also be voted on by attendees and presented at the conclusion of the festival. Tickets to the Film Festival are still available for those interested in attending.
Celebrating 100 years of SMPTE
After the Conference, Avid will join other SMPTE leaders, members, and supporters at the Centennial Gala – SMPTE’s 100th birthday celebration. The evening will reflect on the Society’s past, highlight its impact on today’s industry, and explore the technical innovations of tomorrow. The Society will also be honoring James Cameron and Douglas Trumbull.
