Digital Video Expo Returns With New Location and Focus on HD Content Creation and Distribution for the 21st Century
NewBay Media, a leading publisher of digital content creation media, today announced new features, a new location, and new dates for its 13th annual Digital Video Expo (www.dvexpo.com), which is to be held at the Pasadena Convention Center on September 22-24, 2009. Thousands of professionals in the content creation industry are expected to gather at the show for three full days of intensive education, training, and networking events, as well as the unique opportunity to test drive the latest products and services from over 100 key industry innovators, including Panasonic, Sony, JVC and Matrox Video.
This year's Digital Video Expo includes three new conference tracks, the integration of Broadcast Symposium West, and Apple certification, including Final Cut Pro 7 instruction from authors and master trainers Diana Weynand and Michael Wohl, plus immersion courses for everyone from beginners to advanced users. Also new this year is a special track focusing on career management and development.
"We're excited to present programming that addresses today's incredibly competitive marketplace for our growing family of attendees," says David Williams, Conference Chair, Digital Video Expo, and Editor, DV Magazine. "Not only will we have a great show floor featuring all the latest technology for production and post, but Digital Video Expo takes the next step by also offering insight on how to actually build your career. To quote one of our keynote speakers, veteran entertainment industry career coach Jessica Sitomer, ‘Sometimes talent isn't enough.' Well, technology alone often isn't enough either. Today's creative content professional needs to have not only talent and a firm grasp on technology, but the ability to bring those attributes to the marketplace. And Digital Video Expo is the only show that addresses all three of those elements necessary for your success."
The changes being made by Digital Video Expo have already resonated with the content creation community, as attendee registration is up more than 40 percent to date over last year's event.
"We're gratified by our increased registration, as it confirms our belief that this year's Digital Video Expo programming and message is the right response to today's challenging business realities," says Carmel King, NewBay Executive Vice President. "In addition, our move to the Pasadena Convention Center will offer our attendees a centralized, engaging, and lively destination, featuring a world-class, pedestrian-friendly entertainment district with over 500 restaurants, bars, theaters, and an array of hotel options. Pasadena also has a rich TV and film production industry history, and will make for a safe, convenient, freeway-close, and comfortable destination."
