Roll Up, Roll Up Media, Ents and Tech Enthusiasts!

🎵“Heaven, I’m in heaven”🎵

It’s tech heaven in Nevada this week with two of the key global media, entertainment and technology conferences taking place back-to-back. Las Vegas doesn’t do things by half so it’s the ideal place to host these phenomenal events. 

We could feel the excitement among the crowds as soon as our plane landed and we couldn’t wait to get to our stand at Avid Connect to start chatting with other tech enthusiasts.

Avid Connect 2019

Avid Connect (6–7 April) at the Aria Resort was a huge success. The two days featured many fascinating demonstrations and talks. Experts from Avid were joined by speakers from Microsoft Azure to discuss the media industry moving to the cloud and AI disruption in media workflows. Another excellent discussion centred on monetization opportunities with live video streaming and OTT.

We at Overcast HQ were delighted to showcase our latest integration with the premier editing solution in the world at Connect 2019. Overcast’s Collaboration, Review and Approval application recently went live on the Avid platform and already there are global media companies taking on our unique workflow solution.

NAB 2019

From there it was on to NAB 2019 (April 8–11) in the Las Vegas Convention Center, where we are co-sited with AWS – yes that’s right, Amazon selected us as their tech partner to join them here. They are expecting 100,000 film, video and TV experts and engineers from around the world during the conference. We’re having a blast!

Day 1 featured an Avid session with John Ottman, Oscar-winning editor of Bohemian Rhapsody talking about assembling scenes and his editorial process. Other hot topics that will be explored during NAB 2019 include AI and machine learning; trending technologies; cybersecurity; how cloud is pushing the limits for content; and the content creation and management workflow.

Whether you’re a production house, studio, network or brand, there are many talks and panel discussions exploring the opportunities being generated by the explosive growth in the global OTT content marketplace.

Meet Us In Las Vegas

We’d love to show you how to save time and money by making your video workflow effortless (with the aid of our good friends at Amazon, of course), so why not come to Booth SU2202 for a chat!

Alternatively, you can tweet our CEO @PhilippeBrodeur or email him on philippe@overcasthq.com to arrange a meeting at a time that suits you.

And remember, you’re never too young to start editing!

Content: The Localisation Challenge

In this world of streaming video, the demand and opportunity for content targeted at global markets is continuing to skyrocket. But the total money available in those markets is lagging behind. One of the key challenges is how the media industry versions and localises content.

What do these terms mean? Most of the content produced has to be versioned for the various platforms and services on which it will be distributed. Most of it will also be ‘localised’ — that is, prepared for consumption in another territory — this can include adding foreign language subtitles and soundtrack, and re-editing to comply with regulatory and cultural requirements.

Creative Services: How A Collaboration Platform Can Make Your Life Easier

Being the Head of Creative Services isn’t an easy remit. It involves managing a team of people, all of whom have their own ways of creating visual and graphic content. It also involves meeting tight deadlines, which can be tricky on a project that requires a lot of input from different people. And it demands leadership since the buck stops with you in terms of delivering projects to your clients — on time and within budget — that are aligned to corporate goals.

While juggling all of these challenges, you’re aiming to deliver top quality content, cultivate a strong brand voice through that content, and ensure consistency of brand messaging through digital marketing channels.

Is Your DAM Future-proofed?

Your business is complicated. It has many different people in many different divisions doing many different things. Unsurprisingly, they all have unique ways of interacting with your products, services, clients, and assets.

A DAM provides an effective, streamlined way to manage your digital assets. But is yours future-proofed? Here are three of the key considerations when assessing if your DAM will stand the test of time.

End-To-End: What Does It Mean and Why Do So Many Media Organisations Claim To Do It?

It used to be when you went to a broadcasters’ conference like IBC or NAB you would meet vendors who sold cameras, graphics, encoders, transmission systems and even satellites. But that has all changed since video started migrating to the cloud.

As the use of video becomes ubiquitous, so too does the creation of video tech solutions to help you create videos efficiently and distribute them. But a quick walk around IBC this year and it’s clear that the messaging is anything but clear.

Why Invest In Corporate Video Technology?

The use of video as a business tool is exploding in popularity, but what’s also constantly expanding is the range of ways in which video can serve a business to foster more engaging communication with workers and share business intelligence with co-workers, customers, partners, prospects, vendors and shareholders. The video revolution is here and the time to invest is now!
