San Jose, CA, February 10, 2012 -- The 2012 Creative Storage Conference
(CS 2012) will feature Clyde Smith, Sr. VP of New Technologies at Fox

The Sixth Annual Creative Storage Conference (CS12) will be held Tuesday

Storage Enables Universal and Ubiquitous Workflows. At CS 2012 you can
find out the latest developments in digital storage for media and
entertainment and network with industry professionals.

Clyde Smith’s keynote presentation on Digital Storage and Object Based
Media Workflows abstract follows: The visionaries working on the Material
eXchange Format (MXF) standard foresaw the need for more complex
operational patterns. With the exponential increase in methods and types
of media distribution the complexity in today’s workflows needs to be
simplified to achieve practical interoperability. Industry Initiatives
such as the Advanced Media Workflow Association's AS-02 and the
ETC/SMPTE's IMF are redefining how the entertainment industry can rapidly
evolve it's processes to meet quickly evolving marketplace demands. Media
workflows producing content as a compilation of objects are quickly being
adopted. This presentation will address how, why and what it could mean
for storage implementations.
