(September 17, 2012) Gary Adcock will be the keynote speaker at the September monthly meeting of the Chicago Creative Pro Users Group, according to an announcement made by CCPUG President Sue Lawson. Adcock, recently back from the International Broadcasting Convention held in Amsterdam, will discuss his take on what cutting edge technologies will help shape the future of the digital media industry. The second part of his presentation will cover editing 4K techniques on a laptop.
Adcock is the founder and past president of the Chicago Final Cut Pro Users Group, now know as the Chicago Creative Pro Users Group and the principal at Studio 37, Chicago. Adcock is knowledgeable on all things HD, as the Tech Chair for NAB’s Director of Photography conference, as part of the ICG’s training committee for tapeless productions or speaking on HD and HD Technologies around the world, in addition to writing for Macworld LLC and as a moderator and blogger on CreativeCow.net.
While many video professionals have been sitting on the sidelines trying to figure out what their next upgrade should look like, Midwest Media’s Group Brian Plante and Mike Keeney may provide the answer during the first half of the Users Group meeting. Plante and Keeney will give an overview of the state of the Digital Union, covering the latest software, hardware and workflow developments for the Creative Editorial, Finishing, MoGraph and 3D markets. This wide range session is of major importance for those editors who have been trying to gauge what technologies are best suited to their clients’ needs.
The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 PM on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at DDB/Chicago, 200 E. Randolph St., Chicago, Il. For your chance to be part of what promises to be a productive and informative session, please log on to http://www.chifcpug.org
