Join host Larry Jordan on this special holiday edition of The Buzz as he talks with:

Brian Claypool, Senior Product Manager, Entertainment Solutions, Christie Digital Systems Inc.

If you want to see the future of digital cinema, look to the past. In this case, Alfred Hitchock’s classic “North by Northwest.” Beautifully restored, the film was recently presented in brilliant 4K digital projection to members of the Hollywood community and screened on the latest generation Christie Digital 4K DLP Cinema projector. This was the world’s first full feature screening using a 4K DLP. Our question is “Good Grief! Is 4K REALLY necessary? We just got switched over to HD!” Tune in and find out the answer — and how you can benefit from the latest technology.

Rodney Mitchell, President, DCFCPUG

Rodney Mitchell is the president of the Washington, DC, Final Cut Pro User Group, and a long-time exhibitor at GV Expo. He is also heading up the team of reporters we are sending to cover GV Expo next week for The Buzz. This week, though, we want to talk with Rodney about why a user group would exhibit at a trade show and his sense of what to expect at the show.

Scott Gordon, CEO, Word Wizards, Inc.

Scott Gordon CEO of Word Wizards Inc., has made a career of turning audio into text. And, for the last 13 years, he has run a panel at GV Expo helping private sector production and post-production folks land jobs with the federal government. In this wide-ranging interview, we discuss his “Meet the Producers” panel at Government Video Expo, what producers need to know about captioning their media to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the role free-lancers play in meeting the media needs of the government.

Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy

Bruce Nazarian, The Digital Guy, is an insider when it comes to conferences. From attendee to speaker to organizer, he brings a unique perspective which we want to share with you. We asked Bruce to take a look at the schedule for Government Video Expo 2010 – starting next week in Washington, DC, and share some of the highlights of some “must see events” that caught his eye.

Jack Reilly, Event Manager, Future Media Concepts

Jack Reilly is the event manager for Future Media Concepts. As such, he’s responsible for the entire FMC training program at next week’s GV Expo. So, this week, we spoke with him to get a better understanding of what they have available, and learn the benefits to us to spend the time getting trained at GV Expo.
