SMPTE NY Presents Editing Showcase June 15thAudio Engineering Society will host audio-related editing exhibits. (June 01, 2004)
The New York Section of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers will present an Editing Showcase on Tuesday, June 15th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The event is open to the public and admission is free. The table-top style demonstrations by the industry's leading editing systems manufacturers will run in two sessions between 2:00PM and 9:00PM to accommodate busy visitors' varied schedules.
"We are excited," says Ray Blumenthal, chair of the SMPTE NY Section, "to be able to provide area professionals, many of whom might not have gone to NAB, with an opportunity to learn about the latest versions of the most popular audio and video editing systems."
The Marriott Marquis Hotel, located at 45th Street and Broadway, is the perfect venue for the the Editing Showcase, which will be in the hotel's 37th floor Sky Lobby, from 2:00PM to 9PM. SMPTE expects that there will be large attendance by the region's freelance editing and production community, broadcasters, institutional equipment users and students from local film and television courses.
The event is co-sponsored by the New York Chapter of the Audio Engineering Society and there will be a number of audio-related editing exhibits, such as DAWs, included in the exhibit areas and in adjacent suites on the same floor of the hotel.
From 5:00PM to 9:00PM the event also offers attendees a 'meet and greet' networking time with refreshments and an evenhanded series of panel discussions by expert editors on the 'state of the art' of the technology. Several user groups including those of Apple and Avid also plan to hold on-site meetings synchronous with the Editing Showcase.
The event was inspired by a similar one, which has been run quite successfully by SMPTE's New England Section in Boston for eight years.
