NAB Tuesday's Tastiest To-dos!
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.

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.
