Who: Only 250 creative luminaries, production and studio leaders
Why: To scale and innovate, content creation workflows must move to the cloud. Technologies are rapidly evolving—faster than ever before because of global health and geopolitical risks—to meet the challenge of distributed, remote, and virtual production pipelines. The needs for security and sustainability have outpaced the capabilities of on-premises infrastructure to support production workloads. Microsoft Azure is where this is happening, with partners and service providers who can immediately deploy the latest solutions for creating the world’s greatest content.
You may also forward this invitation to your colleagues who you feel would benefit from this event, although we’re capped at 250 so early bird and all that.
With two full days of programming showcasing the intersection of technology and content creation, we would like for you to join Microsoft, NVIDIA, Epic Games, Avid, HP, Harmonic, and others for this premium restricted-attendance event. This special invite-only event will bring together studio executives, producers, and media tech evangelists who are eager to expand their knowledge and learn about the latest trends and technologies in virtual production, digital humans, virtual worlds, artificial intelligence, and real-world cloud production workflows.
