Join Larry Jordan and Mike Horton as they go live to the trade show and talk with:

Karen Everett, Founder, NewDoc Editing

Karen Everett is a documentary story consultant. She helps documentary producers figure out how to craft their stories to catch the eyes of distributors and viewers. She has discovered there are two “templates” that are very successful today and, after she gave her presentation at the Digital Video Conference, we sat down with her to learn the highlights of her approach.

Bruce Masters, Senior Program Manager, IBM

Increasingly, producers are turning to LTO tape for archiving projects. In fact, some networks are now accepting LTO for final program delivery. Bruce Masters, Senior Program Manager for IBM discusses Ultrium – the consortium of IBM, HP, and Quantum that are the driving force behind LTO. What is it? How can it help us? And where is it going in the future?

Mark Pastor, Strategic Business Manager, Quantum

Whitney Lippincott, Business Alliance Manager, HP Storage

Bruce Masters set the scene about LTO tape. Mark Pastor and Whitney Lippincott provide specific examples of how it is being used in the real world. We also spend time talking about specific techniques you can use to be successful using LTO tape to archive and access your projects.

Sam Thomas, Business and Development Manager, Petrol Bags, Division of Vitec Group

Petrol Bags is relatively new to the industry. If you need to carry cameras or other gear from one place to another, these are products you need to check out. Sam Thomas joins us to talk about their newest bag – the Cambio – which provides a built-in tripod and internal lighting system!

Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, DV and Videography magazines

What can we say? It’s Ned Soltz. Ned looks at the new camera technology on display at DV Expo with an eye on showcasing new cameras and camera accessories and his surprising discovery of removable lenses for the iPhone 4!

Doug Pircher, General Manager, International Supplies

Every year at Digital Video Expo, Doug Pircher introduces us to products we’ve never heard of that become part of our regular production tools. This year is no exception – Doug has scoured the earth to find a great collection of intriguing products that can simplify your life — or at least make it more fun.

Larry Laboe, Executive Director, NewFilm Makers – Los Angeles

It is easy, at a trade show, to get totally captivated by technology. But the purpose of filmmaking is to make films that other people want to watch. That’s where Larry Laboe comes in – he heads New Filmmakers – Los Angles, an organization that is part user group and part film festival. And a GREAT place to see films. Join us as Larry explains.
