Ain't Got the Speed -- Storage for Video Editing
Moderator: Larry Jordan, Digital Production Buzz
Video production and post-production don't just use storage, they inhale it. The voracious appetite that video requires means more than terabytes, as many enterprise vendors have discovered to their surprise. Different video formats have different video requirements. Storage is a four-way balancing act between capacity, transfer rates, cost, and a relatively inexperienced user with no IT background. This session displays the challenges this presents the storage industry, with reports from end-users, and storage developers. Find out what is required now and what is projected for the future.

"Who Gets to Be a Millionaire?" Studio
Profits on Trial
August 3: 6pm-9pm Dinner and Panel
Two legal verdicts this month dealt big blows to the way studios measure profit. The producer of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" was awarded $269 million by a jury that found Disney had denied UK-based Celador its fair share of profit. Separately, a jury ruled that Rysher Entertainment owed "Nash Bridges" star Don Johnson $23.2 million in damages and a share of future profits from the show.
At stake is the studios' well-oiled accounting formula, which sometimes registers a loss even when a movie or TV show is a hit. Some members of the creative community believe media giants are guilty of self-dealing and accounting sleight of hand. Studios argue that they are fairly portraying profits, once all costs for production, marketing and distribution are included.
