A Little About CCWexpo 2014 & SATCON

Sometimes referred to as “NAB NY” (as opposed to the NAB super-convention in Las Vegas every year), but it is much more than a mini-NAB Show! At the Javits Convention Center in New York City on November 12-13 (2014), this superb northern show is actually three shows rolled into one! There’s the CCW (Creative Content World), SATCON (satellite Convention) and NY Post-Production Conference – each with its own distinctive subjects and styles!


First, relevant for senior executives and technical management in television, broadband video/streaming media, film and motion pictures, and production and post, including pro audio, the CCW Conference topics are selected by the CCW Advisory Board and feature such memorable conferences about everything from The Evolution of Content to How Digital is Driving Innovation in Media and Entertainment and everything ccw_logoin-between! And don’t miss the Keynote Speaker – none other than Chief Executive Officer of FX Networks and FX Productions John Landgraf! Don’t miss such exciting discussions as: UHD: Beyond the Hype, Broadcast Minds tm, and A Golden Age for VFX in NYC!

Second, relevant for satellite TV providers, radar and satellite operators, telco providers, and broadcasters seeking to gain efficiencies in satellite distribution, SATCON presents a distinctive assortment of commercial, military and government professionals who are the movers and the shakers in the ever-evolving global communications field. Sessions designed specifically by the SATCON Advisory Board feature such lectures from The Fundamentals of Satellite Communication Systems to Deliberate Jamming, Airline Connectivity, andSatcon Logo even The Global Satellite Environment! The Keynote for these sessions is Lt. Gen. Tom Sheridan (U.S.A.F., Ret’d) Vice President of National Security Space Vencore!

Third (I hate to use the term “lastly”), there’s the Post Production training program, which is designed for digital media professionals including editors, producers, directors, graphic artists, motion graphics designers and new media specialists in production and post, commercial video, distribution and delivery, and independent films, and usually rocks the convention! From CBS Black Rock: Recording & Clipping TV with a “DVR on Steroids” to Optimizing a 4K RAW Camera Output Signal for Postproduction Flexibility Presented by Canon, and such other topics as Loudness vs. Speech Normalization in Broadcast and The State of D-Cinema in 2015 and Beyond, there will be presentations by AJA, Sony, EMC, Panasonic and MORE! Everything from lighting to the Varicam will be discussed by industry professionals who are “in the know!”

And the Streaming OTT Theater Program? OFF THE HOOK! Providing presentations such as Achieving Any-Screen Reach with Streaming Media Presented by Wowza and Consumer Habits in OTT Viewing, other heavy-hitters include Cisco, Harmonic and Piksel, to name-drop a few! I hate to give away much more… visit and be prepared to be amazed at what this gigantic two-day convention has to offer! DON’T MISS IT!!!
