The Acquisition to Archive events will take place at Vistek’s flagship store at 496 Queen Street East in Toronto.The day-long free event is designed to enlighten and inform attendees about the best practices and products to improve their production workflows. Presentations include such topics as File-based Acquisition (with Francois Gauthier of Sony Canada), Digital Recorders, File-based Media Backup & Transfer, and File Management & Archival. Exciting new product introductions are part of the agenda, as well, with product displays & demos that include Sony, Teradek, Atomos, Aja, Convergent Design, Cinedeck, Telestream, CatDV and Cache-A, to name a few.
“The video production environment has changed dramatically over the past few years, with tape-based acquisition being almost entirely replaced by advanced file-based acquisition,” says Vistek’s Brian Young. “Of course the image quality and file size has increased as well as we have moved to the HD world. This event has been designed to highlight some of the powerful new tools available to manage your overall file-based production workflow.”
