Hollywood Post Alliance Tech Retreat Agenda Set
HOLLYWOOD, CALIF.: The Hollywood
Post Alliance has released the program for its annual Tech Retreat held annually
in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The 2011 event is set for Feb. 14-18 and features a
full slate of presentations, discussions, and social events.
The list of topics to be covered on the HPA’s 2011 agenda includes such
hot-button issues as the FCC’s proposed TV spectrum redesignation,
next-generation television broadcasting, 3DTV, audio loudness, reference
picture monitoring, and content restoration.
The list of speakers includes such industry notables as Peter Putman, Mark
Schubin, Steve Lampen, Bob Seidel, Jim Kutzner, Jim Starzynski, Art Alison and
Peter Symes, among many others.
Of special interest to many will be the Retreat’s emphasis on file-based
workflows, with several presentations and panel discussions zeroing in on the
topic. These include: “File-Based Mastering,” “Hollywood in the Cloud Panel,”
and “The New Role of LTO-5 Technologies in Media Workflows.”
The Retreat’s “Movie Night” event will highlight the restoration of Stanley
Kubrick’s 1964 classic, “Dr. Strangelove,” with Grover Crisp from Sony Pictures
on hand to discuss the restoration process.
The 2011 Tech Retreat marks the 17th such HPA event. Complete details are
