T hat’s right. NAB Show New York is right around the corner, October 18–19 at the Javits Center, in one of my favorite US cities, also home to the most delicious bagels in the world.
Aside from those heavenly circles of chewy goodness, there are some amazing sessions and networking opportunities at this growing show supporting the media and entertainment industry, which is why it’s becoming one of the must-attend events on the East Coast.
Here are the top four things I’m most excited about at NAB Show New York this year. What are yours?
- No longer will you wonder what the buzzword “AI” can do for you as a media professional. Quantum has the answer. In conjunction with Veritone—a global leader in the orchestration of artificial intelligence (AI) engines—we’re excited to showcase cognitive computing for media workflows with live demos at our booth (#N336) and a special Lightning Talk, Maximizing Content Value with Artificial Intelligence, from our very own Keith Lissak, senior director of M&E solutions marketing, on Thursday, October 19 at 3 pm. Our award-winning aiWARE™ for Xcellis® is an appliance-deployed, on-premise and cloud solution that applies the power of AI to your content for mining and monetization.
- Whether you have a small post-house, manage a corporate video team, or just need the power of an enterprise-class storage solution at a price you can afford, you’ll want to get a personalized demo of Xcellis Foundation. Xcellis Foundation is our new, powerful, and easy-to-install and manage scale-out NAS storage appliance. Providing high performance and scalability, it lets you tackle the most-demanding tasks you’ll face today—or in the future. Schedule your demo at our booth (#N336) here.
- You’re creating more and more content in higher resolutions and distributing it globally in many different formats. But how would you rate your level of content or data awareness within your storage infrastructure? Without this visibility, you could be keeping content you rarely use in expensive storage tiers, or you could have redundant files taking up your precious storage space. In partnership with DataFrameworks, we’ll feature demos of ClarityNow for Xcellis, an application that provides the visibility and insight needed to intelligently manage your content and cut costs. Read more and schedule a meeting at our booth to see how you can gain content awareness in your environment.
- Enjoy a cocktail with us and Dalet on Wednesday, October 18 at 5pm at the Dalet booth (#N344). You’ll see how Quantum’s StorNext® 6 advanced data management solution and Dalet’s end-to-end production, management, and distribution platform are seamlessly integrated to provide a complete solution to help you make the most of your content—easily and efficiently. Dalet-Quantum happy hours are always a fun time, so we hope you’ll join us!
We’re absolutely thrilled to be at NAB New York this year and, beyond the bagels, look forward to meeting with you to discuss how we can optimize your media workflow. Schedule a meeting with us or just stop by our booth, #N336.
