There's something at night. Something about meat, I think. Gimme a minute. It'll come to me.

You know Kylee Peña as a post-production pundit and Managing Editor at Creative COW, but you may not have been following the course of her career on the technical side of production. By day, she's Netflix's Coordinator of Production Technologies - Imaging and Sound. If you're making movies or TV shows for Netflix, you're talking to Kylee about how to do it right.

It's in this capacity that she's leading an NAB session on Next Generation Media Technologies called "Machine Intelligence: From Dailies to Master - Machine Intelligence Comes to Video Workflows".

This half-day series looks at machine learning, deep learning and artificial intelligence technologies and at how studios, networks and creative service companies are using them to help produce content. We'll hear how they can boost productivity, efficiencies and creativity in production planning, animation, visual effects, editorial, post and localization. We'll see what AI and ML apps are capable of doing right now and glimpse their long-term potential to alter jobs and workflows. Listen to top technologists, production executives and filmmakers share the latest research and case studies and learn how you can prepare for a future with machine intelligence as your team member.

Kylee's specific session begins at 11am in Room N257, and you can read more about it here.

This comes on the heels of her packed-house Monday presentation, "New Post Workflow Strategies", so don't be late.

Also coming back for more after packing the house Monday for Adobe: The pilot of Video Copilot his own self, Andrew Kramer, and Valentina Vee. Andrew will talk about how he uses Adobe After Effects to produce high-end FX in a fraction of the time, and how to maintain project consistency when you’re working with a team of artists at 2 PM.

Valentina will talk about balancing commercial work with passion projects and producing video content for a variety of platforms using Adobe Premiere Pro at 10:30.

Then at 3PM, James Safechuck and JB Fondren will talk about how AvatarLabs helped garner significant buzz ahead of the release of My Little Pony: The Movie. Learn how they combined the Facebook Live platform with live animation achieved with Adobe Character Animator, to successfully help Hasbro and Lionsgate engage fans and build excitement for the film. More details on Adobe's festivities here.

Before I came to work at Creative COW, I worked at Avid, and I can tell you first hand, these ppl know how to put on a show. Even if you have no interest in Media Composer, swing by Avid's main stage Tuesday to get creative insights from picture and sound editors from Black Panther, Stranger Things, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Westworld, and much more. Avid has lots of details here.

While you're there, poke around the broadcast side of the booth. You'll see that there's a lot more to Avid than NLEs as you get a close-up peek at the future of sports broadcast, news, on-air graphics, and much more. Tell 'em I said hi.

It's another big day for Adorama (C4345) , too, especially if you're interested in cameras, lenses, and HDR.

  • 11AM: RED + Lens Choices with Phil Holland (“Life of Pi,” “Moneyball,” “Fast & Furious”); It’s about more than just focal length – lenses can tell a story in many ways. Director of Photography Phil Holland will take the audience through the different emotions and characteristics of spherical, anamorphic, and prime lenses of different makes and models.
  • 1PM: What is HDR and how do I use it? With Jeromy Young, CEO of Atomos: HDR seems to be a new imaging craze, but not many people understand what it is or how they can integrate it into their work. Jeromy Young joins us to demystify HDR and look at ways to put it into your workflow.
  • 4PM: Cinema Lenses with Fujifilm and Philip Bloom (“The Wonder List with Bill Weir,” “How to Start a Revolution”): Philip Bloom comes to Adorama Live to discuss the optical and mechanical differences between cinema and photo lenses.

More details, including re: their daily giveaways, here.

LumaForge continues to define not just the cutting edge of shared storage workflows, but the scope of ambition for booth presentations.

Our good friend Marco Solorio added some captions to Grant Petty's Blackmagic Design presentation on his OneRiver Media Twitter feed. There's no question that if you didn't get a chance to see Blackmagic's press conference yesterday, you're gonna wanna catch up to it today.

And if you haven't been catching some of the conversation around DaVinci Resolve, by all means, take a gander here. The short version: wow. The long version: wooooooooooooow.

Speaking of the LONG version:

Ah yes, and speaking of Monday press conferences you might have missed, if you don't know what Vimeo is up to this year, you really ARE missing out. To wit:
  • Build an over-the-top (OTT) subscription streaming app for live and on-demand video. With the power of our over-the-top streaming custom apps, you can build a Netflix-style OTT app for your on-demand video content in no time at all, and monetize that content with a subscription service. And now you can also add live content to your OTT apps. This is great news for fitness, sports, media, and any content creators looking to engage their audiences with live as well as on-demand, all within a dedicated home of their app or website.
  • Studio 5: now available for beta in Windows and Mac. Livestream Studio is a live-editing and encoding software that allows you to transform your computer into a professional live production control room. Use Studio during your live broadcast to input multiple feeds, add graphics, master audio, and stream in one robust, easy-to-use package.
  • eCDN for Corporate Communications Streaming. Our pals over at Livestream now offer an eCDN (enterprise content delivery network) for all enterprise customers with large, global employee bases. This new feature will allow them to stream company announcements and events using peer-to-peer networking technology, that won’t stress their internal servers and networks. It also improves content delivery speed, reducing buffer time.
  • Meet our brand new hardware: Studio One. Looking to take your streaming tool kit to the next level? Studio One is our newest encoder with a compact desktop size (an 11-inch Mini-ITX box) that doesn’t skimp on horsepower. Stream up to 4K resolution, from two 4K inputs, or four HD inputs (HDMI or SDI). Studio One also features two quarter inch analog audio inputs, an Intel eighth generation 6-core CPU, a high performance graphics card, and advanced hardware encoding.

By all means, swing by the Vimeo booth, C3307, but you can also start by checking out yesterday's presentation by Vimeo CEO, Anjali Sud, and GM of Live, Mark Kornfilt, unveiling their newest releases.

Live from NAB w/ CEO, Anjali Sud, & GM Live, Mark Kornfilt from Vimeo Staff on Vimeo.

Then at 3PM Eastern, noon Pacific today (Tuesday), they'll be doing live presentations of all their latest stuff, with a live stream, and much, much more information on Vimeo's latest news available here.

Oh, yeah, and that Tuesday night thing with the meat. We hear it's Super.

Okay, what are we missing? Let us know!
