Better Together! Dalet Acquires Ooyala Flex Media Platform business.
Your chance to vote on the best of the blogs from the past year and win an awesome prize! While the Dalet Academy only launched in January, Dalet has actually been posting educational blogs since NAB 2014 when we joined forces with AmberFin (and thus acquired some of their blog posts as well), and you, our readers, have been “voting with your clicks.” There are clearly some very popular topics on this blog, and the number of views speaks for itself...
If you won’t be attending NAB this year, we’ll miss you, but you can still get involved. If you are coming to NAB 2015, pay attention.
While the Dalet Academy only launched in January, Dalet has actually been posting educational blogs since NAB 2014 when we joined forces with AmberFin (and thus acquired some of their blog posts as well), and you, our readers, have been “voting with your clicks.” There are clearly some very popular topics on this blog, and the number of views speaks for itself.
For NAB 2015, we’re taking the Dalet Academy, and this blog, live to the show floor. As a part of our exciting daily schedule in the Dalet Academy theatre, we’ll be turning one of these blog posts into a live presentation – and we want YOU to decide which one gets the live treatment. (This is by no means a competition between myself, Kevin and Bruce to see who wrote the best blog!) As with the “Bruce’s Shorts, Live” sessions, also delivered in the theatre, there will also be the opportunity to sign up to an exclusive workshop where we will discuss, in depth, the topic covered in the presentation with Dalet and other industry experts.
To narrow things down a bit, the voting will be based on the three most read blogs of the last 18 months, as follows:
Title: Change Management – 4 things to consider when implementing a MAM
Kevin Savina discusses four simple steps to ensure your organization is on board when implementing a new media asset management system. This excellent blog clearly hit a chord with readers, getting a significant number of “shares” on social media shortly after it was posted.
Title: MXF AS02 and IMF: What's the Difference and Can They Work Together?
Written by the Dean of the Dalet Academy, Mr. MXF himself, this highly technical post continues to receive a high number of regular views 18 months after it was first published. A lot has changed in the development of IMF in that time, but the topic remains increasingly relevant. A presentation would bring this blog bang up to do.
Title: Pictionary, Standards and MXF Interoperability
I’m surprised to see this one here but, alongside Kevin’s blog on change management (above), it’s the most popular blog of the last 6 months. In it I discussed the work of organizations around the globe to standardize on file delivery and exchange formats. I also hint at how I got a room full of people to play Pictionary during a (very serious) presentation – something that could perhaps be repeated on the NAB show floor!
Which topic we present is up to you. Whether you attend NAB or not, you’ll have the chance to win an excellent prize just for voting, and see the resulting presentation on video via YouTube. Be sure to place your vote in the coming weeks – we’ll be announcing the chosen blog on Sunday, April 12th before the show!
