NEXT MEETING: June 25, 2014 @Turner Studios
The Atlanta Cutters welcome Dell to the ATL! “Why Moving to 4k is a ‘Scary’ Good Idea”
Although 4K content is still slowly being adopted by the masses, creative professionals with an eye towards the future are seeing great value in upgrading to 4K video now. Please join us to hear from Erik Horn, Executive Creative Director + Principal at Arts+Labor, and Scott Hamilton, Media & Entertainment Market Strategist at Dell, for a discussion on the benefits of using 4K video. Erik will share his experience of using 4K to create a “strange, funny, and absurd” horror film and re-create a record-breaking moment in college sports. Scott Hamilton will discuss how to leverage today’s technology to be more productive and more creative with 4K.
Also at this event…
