NAB Show’s Technology Summit on Cinema: The Future of Motion Imaging and Sound
5-6 April 2014, Las Vegas, NV USA
Cinema has historically been in the forefront of motion imaging invention and deployment. Over the years, revolutionary new technologies have been first tested and proven in the movie theater, only later to become mainstream in television broadcast, packaged media, and even gaming. The 2014 Technology Summit on Cinema (TSC) at the NAB Show brings together a unique cross-section of the most knowledgeable, visionary, and innovative engineering and creative minds to discuss leading edge technologies and issues that will define the next generation of the movie-going experience. TSC 2014 will provide a 2 day forum covering the future of content creation technology and workflows for cinema production, post-production, exhibition, as well as conversion workflows for the aftermarket. The Summit format will include case studies, tutorials, keynotes, demos and panel discussions providing an up to minute understanding of the technologies, issues, and solutions.
Chris Cookson, who has served in senior technology executive roles at Sony Pictures and Warner Bros. and is widely considered a technical visionary in the industry, will take a look ahead with his TSC keynote, “Cinema: Act 2, The Future.” This conversation will continue through a subsequent roundtable discussion moderated by Michael Karagosian and will include Matt Cowan, chief engineer, Entertainment Technology Consultants; Rob Hummel, president, Group 47; and Howard Lukk, vice president of production technology at The Walt Disney Studios.
