Digital Asset Symposium Where Multi-Industry Experts Look at the Lifecycle of Assets from Production through Rights Management

What:
The Annual Digital Asset Symposium (DAS). DAS will address the full life cycle of the media asset – from content creation to rights management to assuring asset preservation – with speakers and case studies addressing what works in the real world.  Each part of the life cycle impacts the next and DAS is the only place where everyone is part of the conversation – content creators, post-production, systems designers, archives, asset managers – where commercial meets nonprofit and corporate meets public.

When:
Thursday, May 15 & Friday, May 16, 2014. Doors will open each morning at 8:30am, with sessions beginning at 9:00am. There is a networking reception following each day’s sessions at 5pm.

Where:
The Linwood Dunn Theatre, 1313 Vine Street, Hollywood, CA 90028, The
Academy’s Pickford Center.  Parking available at the Arclight Cinema nearby.

Why:
“Since the beginning, DAS has been the place where projects, problems, and solutions are discussed within a real world framework. This year’s event continues to engage an even greater diversity of experts and industries. We want the entire community of technical and creative users to share what they are working on, the lessons learned, what challenges they’re facing now and what might be around the corner,” noted Tom Regal, the DAS program chair.
