NAB Show and USGIF to Host Digital Transition Workshop for Government and Military Sector

--Broadcasters will join government experts to discuss how lessons learned from the switch to digital TV can be applied to government organizations during their digital transition--

Washington, DC -- The NAB Show and United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF) will present a one-day workshop on Wednesday, December 1, that will unite broadcasters with government and military professionals to discuss the challenges of the transition to digital television and how this relates to professionals in the government sector. Participants will have the opportunity to network and develop new business relationships while applying the lessons learned from the digital TV transition to the government and military's ongoing transition to digital technologies.

Titled "Mastering the Transition to Digital," the workshop will include presentations from Bob Seidel (CBS vice president of Engineering and Advanced Technology), Jim Kutzner (chief engineer, PBS) and Gary Nadler (general manager of Telecommunications & Affiliate Services, ABC TV Network), as well as panel discussions featuring government and broadcast professionals. Panelists will examine the demand for high-quality video standards in the government and military sectors, as well as the challenges of using digital technologies over traditional analog techniques. Additionally, multiple case studies will be presented by the NAB Show and USGIF that will examine lessons learned from the digital transition, managing video content in a modern broadcast facility and the digital workflow process.

"Mastering the Transition to Digital" will be held on December 1 from 8:00 - 5:00 at NAB headquarters in Washington, DC. For additional workshop information, and to register online, click here.
