Ryan Salazar & Pixar Discuss Render Farms

Ryan Salazar & Pixar Discuss Render Farms

Teaming clusters of systems together to generate frames of videos is an amazing time-saver, especially when there are heavy scenes that need lots of processing power. Imagine now an animation that could take millions of hours to render, and one computer is no longer an option. With an in-house system, or a render farm using the latest Cloud Technology, speed and optimum results are what it's all about.

Digital Asset Management in Broadcast and Post Production

Digital Asset Management in Broadcast and Post Production

One of the least considered functions at many studios is Digital Asset Management (DAM). More attention needs to be spent on this mostly under-used asset. Many files are created and then unceremoniously dumped into outer space, never to be seen again. However, it doesn't have to be that way; once created, digital assets become a goldmine that just keep giving.

3DTV To Go: The Evolution of 3D and Multi-Screen Viewing

Editor-in-chief and publisher for The Hollywood Reporter for 17 years, Bob Dowling is the co-producer of both the 3D Entertainment Summit and the Multi-Screen Summit, and offers a front row view.

3DTV: The Industry's Challenges, Your Opportunities.

3DTV: The Industry's Challenges, Your Opportunities.

As consumers, it is easy for us to see that 3DTV has not spread as quickly as originally hoped. There are still lots of opportunities for manufacturers and broadcasters to make big moves, and Al Caudullo, The 3DGuy discusses them. More important, Al has seen opportunities for independent content creators like himself to find new revenue streams, even in this trying economy -- and believes you can do it too.

Rewiring, Automating and Scaling Up for Broadcast Post

Rewiring, Automating and Scaling Up for Broadcast Post

How do 34 staffers produce 1,850+ Television spots & 600+ Radio spots...every month? Automation. Ryan Salazar also rewired studioZ's entire facility top to bottom for digital workflows that can still accommodate the HDCAM some of their clients still require. Combine that with a new machine room, 40 servers, eight Pro Tools suites, triple-redundant archive backups, and you'll find a facility that constantly rebuilds itself for the future.

The New IT Director Versus the Old Broadcast Engineer

The New IT Director Versus the Old Broadcast Engineer

From the earliest days of media, it was recognized that there needed to be people who performed the technical workings of the studio. As today's technology calls for new skillsets, there is a new demand for someone - a hybrid engineer - who can bridge the gap between the broadcast engineer of old and the IT director of new for today's specialized media markets.

Confessions of a Teenage Girl

Tim Wilson's bio photo may look like the vague approximation of a man in his early fifties, but he assures us most emphatically that it is the face of a teenage girl -- at least when he thinks about The Vampire Diaries. Look, this is just the way it is when you're a fan. We might try to keep our cool, but really, fans aren't about "cool." They're about passion.
