NAB and FMC Launch Post|Production Show in New York

WASHINGTON, DC - October 4 - The National Association of Broadcasters and Future Media Concepts announced plans today to launch the annual NAB Post|Production Show. The first event, which will be held November 15-17, 2005 at the Javits Convention Center in New York, will feature a cutting-edge conference and a full exhibit floor.

"We are very excited about launching this event in New York which will complement our annual Post|Production World Conference held in April at the NAB show in Las Vegas," said NAB Vice President, Science & Technology John Marino. "Our partnership with FMC will ensure that conference attendees receive the highest quality professional training available anywhere. Our expo will offer a hands-on showcase of the very latest tools for aspiring and professional digital artists."

The NAB Post|Production Show, developed to complement and build on the highly successful NAB Post|Production World Conference, held at NAB's spring convention, capitalizes on the partnership between NAB and Future Media Concepts (FMC). It is planned as an annual event specifically targeted to the New York and the East Coast audience and will train digital artists in cutting-edge production and post-production techniques and showcase the latest content creation technologies. The target audience includes video and film editors, visual effects artists, producers, graphic designers, animators, Web developers, sound designers and DVD producers. Conference programming provided by FMC will offer tips and tricks for intermediate to advanced users by expert instructors, certified trainers, leading authors, power users and gurus.

The exhibit floor will showcase the latest content creation technologies, giving exhibitors the opportunity show their products to some of the best and brightest New York and East Coast digital artists. In addition, event attendees will find the NAB Post|Production Show a great place to network with their peers and exchange ideas about projects and career enhancement.

"The NAB Post|Production Show will provide the New York and East Coast video and film community with a high-end digital media expo and a training conference. The Expo will be an ideal opportunity to showcase technologies introduced at the NAB spring show to the East Coast community. The training conference will address today's unique challenges and provides tips and techniques attendees can take to their next project," said FMC President and Co-Founder Ben Kozuch. "As software is becoming more affordable yet more capable - the need for qualified training has never been so evident. Our sessions are designed for intermediate and advanced users who wish to maximize their efficiency and creativity to stay competitive and get ahead. There will be multiple tracks to choose from and over 100 sessions."
