Visual effects and animation have dramatically changed the art of storytelling providing ever improving tools for content creators to engage audiences. More recently high dynamic range technology has provided new capabilities to increase audience immersion in the story. These tools are of particular importance to a company like Pixar which is constantly pushing the boundaries of what they can accomplish in the hands of skilled artists. Join us as we discuss how HDR, VFX, and other technologies are continuing to evolve how content is produced and presented.

The infrastructure we use to deliver content is in transition from a traditional point-to-point Serial Digital Interface (SDI) based infrastructure to an Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure, mandating new workflows and solutions. This clash in domains, from video engineers’ comfort with SDI to network engineers’ familiarity with IP, will require a bridge to foster collaboration between broadcast engineers and IT experts to troubleshoot issues in this new hybrid SDI/IP environment.
