Digital Production BuZZ

Jul 16, 2010

Join host Larry Jordan, and co-host Michael Horton, as they talk with:

Jonathan Handel, Of Counsel at Troy/Gould, is a regular on our show talking about legal issues. We were deeply troubled to read this week of legal challenges to Joe Berlinger, a filmmaker who made a documentary about a class action lawsuit against Chevron's oil operation in Ecuador. Chevron is demanding all Joe's outtakes as part of their legal defense. Is this an issue of First Amendment rights, or trying to uncover the truth? The Court of Appeals will decide. And the impact for filmmakers could not be more significant. Tune in this week to learn more about this critical issue.

Paul Jordan is the Digital Archivist for the International Monetary Fund. As part of the Fund's efforts to make their actions transparent, he works to acquire and process the records of the Fund, and most importantly make sure that they remain accessible over the coming decades. He likes to say that his job is him versus seventy million digital documents, and so far, the documents are winning. We talk with him this week about the various hardware options filmmakers have to preserve their digital assets.

Tom Dixon,VP of Marketing,and Tom McAndrew, Pro Audio Manager for North America, for DTS, Inc, join us to talk about surround audio. DTS is justly famous for the high quality of its theatrical decoders. However, DTS recently has expanded into hundreds of consumer devices and, most recently, to the web. This week, we want to learn how surround sound on the web works!

Philip Hodgetts, CEO of Intelligent Assistance, is one of our favorite regulars. This week, he returns with a look at Adobe's increasing support of metadata in their CS5 products. As we continue moving to tapeless media, metadata is how we are going to keep track of everything. Philip explains why.
