Winter Olympics production focus set for NAB 2014
NAB Show Super Sessions focused on media asset management will include Sochi Reflections: Olympic-Sized Production Lessons That Can Apply to Everyone on 7 April. The session will feature key players in the production of the Sochi Winter Games, who will discuss how they managed workflows and content delivery during one of the most complex sports productions in history.
Other Super Sessions likely to be of interest to SVG Europe readers include Advanced Video Technologies – Visions of the Future, which will take place on 9 April and feature a panel of experts discussing the future of video compression technology, holographic presentations, and the demands of video capture, storage and distribution.
“The proliferation of digital content and distribution have made asset management and archiving more important than ever before,” says Chris Brown, executive VP for conventions and business operations at NAB. “NAB Show delivers a unique opportunity for content professionals to explore how they can leverage the complex nature of digital archiving and storage.”
The Broadcast Engineering Conference (BEC), which addresses the latest opportunities and challenges that face broadcast engineering professionals worldwide, will also feature several sessions on media asset management. During the BEC session Intelligent File-Based Processing: Cost-Effective, Efficient Tools for Broadcasters on 9 April, attendees will learn how the addition of intelligence to automated transformation processes, via metadata extraction and indexing, can enable broadcasters to maximise the quality of their assets and outputs cost-effectively. Then, on 10 April, BEC will feature a session entitled Phonetic-Based Search of Dialogue: The Key to Unlocking An Archive’s Potential, which will demonstrate how detailed, precise media descriptions can change how organisations discover and use archived assets.
