2012 Creative Storage Conference Focuses on Entertainment Storage Challenges, Opportunities

Speaker Submission Deadline is April 26

The 2012 Creative Storage Conference (CS 2012), in association with key industry sponsors, is finalizing a series of technology/application/trend sessions that will feature distinguished experts from the professional media and entertainment industries. The Conference will be held June 26 in Culver City, CA to address the changes taking place in entertainment storage/distribution. The speakers from leading studios and firms will cover the complete spectrum of digital storage for content capture, post production, content delivery and archiving.

Tom Coughlin, program coordinator/chair, notes that he will also have a number of key content industry experts in content/video production and post-production in sessions throughout the day. “This will be one of the most popular conferences we put on throughout the year,” he noted, “because we have an outstanding roster of creative people as well as post-production and storage experts who will be addressing the capacity, performance issues and solutions of media organizations and independent teams.”

The Creative Storage Conference is a truly unique event focusing on key technologies in the professional media and entertainment industry. New media and organization sponsors/participants include Advantage Video Systems, and the Digital Cinema Society.

Coughlin noted that last year’s event included attendees from across the country and speakers from Deluxe Digital Media, TV Guide and movie/television show production firms. “The program is very focused on new production techniques and the impact they are having on the changing storage industry,” he commented. “We will be presenting a lot of information in the one-day event that people will be able to immediately use as well as be aware of what will be available in the next 6-12 months.”

The Sixth Annual Creative Storage Conference (CS12) will be held Tuesday June 26, 2012 at the DoubleTree Hotel West Los Angeles in Culver City, CA (www.creativestorage.org). This event brings together digital storage providers, equipment and software manufacturers and professional media and entertainment end users to explore the conference theme of Digital Storage Enables Universal and Ubiquitous Workflows.
