Building Media in the Cloud

An effective transition from analog to digital involves changes to workflows that take advantage of the resources the non-linear, digital world has to offer. In order to accommodate this, IT staff who normally work outside the video domain need to become involved in the process. To the IT manager, the large video files that need to be moved around might be an annoyance. In order to avoid a messy collision between the broadcast side of the facility and the IT department there are some important things to consider when planning for and implementing digital workflows. Central to the planning of the new IT centric broadcast workflow is the content storage management system that will be the pivot point for content as it moves from point to point. If well planned and implemented, the CSM system will improve workflows and separate the movement of video content from other mission critical IT facilities.

As CTO at Front Porch Digital, Brian Campanotti is leading industry advancement in global content storage management (CSM), media asset management (MAM), migration, and preservation solutions. He has made innovations in the area of cloud-based solutions for handling “big data” targeted at content owners and media companies, and was one of the primary inventors of the Archive eXchange Format (AXF).

As such, he continues his work as a founding member of the SMPTE AXF committee. Mr. Campanotti and his team have won Emmy® Awards for their work in videotape collection preservation technologies and for innovation in serial digital video technology.

3D Cinematography/Videography Demonstration

For educators of new media the teaching of 3D storytelling fundamentals requires a completely new way of seeing and doing. This brief 3D camera and story workshop will look at the conceits and fundamental teaching differences between conventional 2D and 3D instruction. We will explore the story implications of a camera's interaxial distance, lens focal length, convergence and divergence settings, and discuss in detail the issues of subject roundness and point of view. We will consider the nature of the 3D volume and audience comfort zone, the use (or non-use) of 2D conceits such as soft-focus and close-ups, and discuss the prospects given the advent of the 3D iPad and mobile phones of a burgeoning non-theatrical 3D universe in for students. The workshop is intended to inspire educators willing and able to grasp the stereo gold ring. Panasonic cameras will be available for hands-on use and experimentation during and after the session.
Moderator: Denise Belafonte-Young, Lynn University
Guest Speaker: Barry Braverman, Cinematographer & 3D Trainer/Consultant for Panasonic
