Bits By The Bay 2015


BITS BY THE BAY Returns for 2015

The Bits By The Bay conference returns in 2015 with a focus on technologies for news and content in the connected age. Streamlined, efficient and interconnected workflows are essential to deliver content quickly and accurately, not just for news organizations where pressures can be acute, but for all organizations that need to acquire and publish content quickly and distribute across a plethora of platforms.

The conference is now SOLD OUT! - no onsite/walk-in registrations are available.

As of Monday 4/20 the conference hotel is SOLD OUT!

A block of rooms at the Holiday Inn Express in Prince Frederick, MD has been set aside.  We will work on getting a shuttle for transportation on Monday evening, Tuesday AM and Tuesday PM.

If you still need a room please contact:

Holiday Inn Express Prince Frederick 

355 Merrimac Ct, Prince Frederick, MD ‎20678

(410) 535-6800. Must call and ask for SMPTE (Society of Motion Pictures) rate at $75/night



The migration toward IP-based production and distribution is radically changing the way media is managed, moved, and manipulated for news contribution and distribution.  Inexpensive and flexible workflows can deliver content quickly and accurately, not just for news broadcasters but for a spectrum of users that acquire, process and publish content.

The Bits By The Bay conference returns in 2015 with an emphasis on the transition to IP-based systems and other elements of the "Connected Age."  This year Day 1 will focus on news and newsroom technologies (plus a smattering of related topics) while Day 2 emphasizes the transition to IP and network-based functionality.

The conference targets IT or broadcast/media engineering managers as well as other key personnel, including those who design and maintain systems to create and deliver content for any platform in today's wide-ranging media environment.

You can download the program preview at the bottom of the page.

Space is limited and the conference is almost sold out so sign up now.  There will not be any on-site registration.
