The 'Video Collaboration: New Ideas' events will highlight new technologies making it possible for creative teams to be far more productive, both internally and with their clients, than previously possible. Unlike most vendor-driven marketing events, the focus will be on real-world applications, and axle, along with Adobe and IBM, will provide the opportunity for attendees to spend hands-on time with their technologies at the events, and ask in-depth questions of the companies' product experts.

 "I'm delighted to be part of this initiative to bring cutting-edge information and perspectives to media professionals in the country's two biggest markets," said Chris Dee, an industry consultant with management experience at major broadcasters including HBO, NBC and Disney, and the opening speaker at both events. "It's exciting to be part of the project and we're looking forward to great attendance and participation by some industry leaders."

Registration for the free events is at www.tinyurl.com/newideashollywood and www.tinyurl.com/newideasny. The agenda for the sessions is as follows:

Big Picture Overview – What's happening across the broadcast and postproduction industries today.  Chris Dee, principal at DeeTour Consulting and a pioneer of digital workflows at HBO, NBC, Discovery Channel, and Disney. 10 AM

Distributed Editing – It's been talked about as a possibility for years, but now it's real. Dennis Radeke will discuss Adobe® Anywhere for video, a collaborative workflow platform that empowers teams using Adobe professional video tools to work together in real-time across standard networks, using shared media.10:30 AM

Easy Media Management – This used to be a contradiction in terms; we'll explain how you can simply, affordably add media management to current workflows and shared storage. axle Video's Sam Bogoch will show you how to stop hunting around and start being productive! 11 AM

Truly Scalable Archiving – Archiving once involved complex user interfaces and custom setups; worst of all, vendors' unique storage formats meant you couldn't even exchange data.  IBM's Dave Taylor shows us how LTFS LE is making scalable, searchable, exchangeable archives a reality. 11:30 AM

Q&A and Demos – Stay with us for an open-ended discussion in the main room, and technology demos in the foyer. We'll make sure there's plenty of opportunity for hands-on interaction. 12 Noon
