A panel session of film and storage industry experts will explain why digital video content is becoming important across all platforms and why flash memory technology is the storage solution of choice at the FMS (Flash Memory Summit) 2016 M&E Day, August 9.  The series of panel discussions will cover the complete spectrum of video capture and production as part of FMS 2016 being held August 9-11 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. 

“Whether it’s for pure entertainment, education, business discussions or documentaries, high-speed, high-performance flash memory storage is helping digital video content become an integral part of people’s lives,” said Lidia Paulinska, Editor in Chief of Bright Blue Innovation International and panel moderator.  “Flash-based storage has become the go-to storage solution for film capture and production because of its rugged and reliable performance.

“During the session, hands-on filmmakers and storage technologists will discuss how much content 4K/HDR cameras, 360/VR (virtual reality) and aerial (drone) filmmakers capture every hour they shoot films at 48fps/120fps.”

In addition, panelists will explore why video projects today call for “keep it rolling” high-capacity storage and processing.  Attendees will also learn why filmmakers are pushing for a wider range of open standard flash technology to meet the needs of their audiences.

Moderated by Lidia Paulinska, the panelists for the session will include:

  • Chris Haeffner – Other World Computing
  • Neil Smith – LumaForge
  • George Krieger – Xarray Digital Design & Productions
  • Alex Grossman – Symply
  • Mike Cavanaug – KeyCode

The one-day of M&E sessions brings together leading filmmakers, digital storage/ solution providers, media and entertainment experts to discuss the growing requirements and the advancements being made in film/video content capture, production and post production.  The no-cost sessions are open to individuals and organizations interested in understanding the solutions for the complete M&E industry content cycle.
