2014 NAB Show Brings Cloud-Based Workflows Center Stage

Amazon Web Services' Mark Ramberg to keynote two-day conference


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- NAB Show, the world's largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums, will bring cloud-based technologies center stage through dedicated conference programing and exhibiting companies that are leading the way and breaking new ground in cloud technologies and services. The convention takes place April 5 - 10 in Las Vegas, Nevada.


The NAB Show Media Management in the Cloud Conference on Tuesday, April 8, and Wednesday, April 9 will feature a keynote delivered by Mark Ramberg of Amazon Web Services, in which the 24-year veteran of the software industry will address how cloud services can be leveraged to meet ever-increasing infrastructure demands of workflow scenarios present in film production and broadcast.


Day one of the two-day Media Management in the Cloud conference will feature sessions including Content Creation in the Cloud: Post Production, in which key executives working across digital landscapes will discuss their visions and real-world applications for current and future cloud-based production solutions. Day two will play host to A Look into the Future of Cloud, a panel discussion on where cloud media technology is headed and how executives and creatives can prepare for it. Cloud computing will also be a key topic within the Media Technologies for Military and Government Workshops. Additional sessions will address topics such as independent film, post production, next generation workflows, security/reliability and ROI.


"Today's content-creation workflows require both the flexibility and security to allow crews to shoot in remote locations while collaborating with editing and visual effects departments that may be housed halfway around the world," said NAB Executive Vice President of Conventions and Business Operations Chris Brown. "Cloud-based production and distribution workflows are critical to this new reality, and NAB Show tackles head on the challenges of such complex work environments, and how to successfully implement them."


Key NAB Show exhibitors within the cloud computing community include Accenture, Amazon Web Services, Aspera (an IBM Company), Dell, Digital Nirvana, EMC Isilon, EVS, Hitachi Data Systems, Huawei Enterprise USA, Oracle, Quantel and Verizon.
