“We’re thrilled that our opening keynote speaker will be Amazon Web Services’ Global Digital Media Business Strategy Leader Mark Ramberg; and that our marquee keynotes include Disney’s Program Director, Cloud Hosting, Chris Launey, and IBM’s Lead Partner for Global Business Services, Saul Berman,” said DCIA CEO Marty Lafferty.
“We’re also very pleased to have on our agenda Patrick Macdonald-King, CEO/President, DAX, who will speak at our Monday session at 1 p.m. on Cloud Solutions for Content Creation,” added Lafferty.

CCC at NAB will feature more than seventy speakers in a two-day event track that will demonstrate the new ways cloud-based solutions are providing increased reliability and security, not only for commercial broadcasting and enterprise applications, but also for military and government implementations.
From collaboration during production, to post-production and formatting, to interim storage, delivery, and playback on fixed and mobile devices, to viewership measurement and big-data analytics, cloud computing is having an enormous impact on high-value multimedia distribution.
