Join host Larry Jordan and co-host Michael Horton, as they talk with:

Rick Dean, Senior Vice-President, THX

THX has been certifying audio in movie theaters for a long time – since about Star Wars, in fact. Rick Dean, senior vice president of THX, is spearheading a new effort to standardize color management in post production. Called cineSpace, it is a suite of applications all designed to make sure digital images look the same on a variety of different outputs. Frankly, we are skeptical about why this is necessary, or even affordable, so we invited Rick on to explain their new system.

Robert Sharp, President, DigiEffects

Robert Sharp, president of DigiEffects, called us the other day saying he had some interesting news to announce to the world. So, we invited him on The Buzz to learn more. DigiEffects, as you probably know, makes Delirium and Damage and gave us a tantalizing glimpse of new products when we talked with Robert last month at NAB. We can’t wait to learn more!

David Peto, CEO, Aframe

David Peto, CEO of Aframe, is based in the UK, but he’s been making some bold predictions about the power of editing in The Cloud. Cloud editing, which means your media is stored on servers located on the Internet, is very attractive, but has lots of potential problems. Aframe claims to be the central platform from which everything can hang. We want to know more, so we are going right to the source.

Philip Hodgetts, CEO, Intelligent Assistance

Aframe is an interesting hybrid of cloud and local storage. So, we invited Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, to share his opinions with us this week on the challenges and benefits of using The Cloud in post-production. You’ll be interested in what he has to say.

You can’t find people or interviews like this anywhere else! It’s another fascinating show.
It’s all the information you need now to know what’s coming next!
