DCS Event: “What’s New in Desktop Editing”

This event is still in the final planning stages, but we wanted to let you know to expect it. On the evening of Wednesday, December 4th, we will return to Key Code Media’s Burbank headquarters for an event to catch us up on what’s new with NLEs; both the areas of traditional off-line creative editing and for finishing on the desktop, including dealing with 4K. We’ll see what’s new from Avid, Adobe, Apple, and perhaps even some that do not start with the letter "A." If this subject is of interest, please mark your calendars, keep an eye out for further announcements, and we’ll start taking RSVPs after all the details are confirmed.
