WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF POST?
The Future of Post is an upstream, bi-annual free to attend event for post-production senior management, CTOs, chief engineers and senior operators as well as post supervisors, production company and agency resource directors and managers, heads of production and all those closely involved in defining and delivering post for mainstream broadcast, SVoD drama, film and commercials.
We have an exceptional speaker line-up including senior post executives from
* Technicolor * The Farm Group * Envy * Molinare * Films@59 * Prodigious * Pinewood * Clear Cut * Fremantle * Splice * Cinelab *
Along with Black Mirror PPS * Moira Brophy * and leading technology experts from
* Jigsaw24 ** Quantum ** Rohde & Schwarz ** Avid ** Oracle ** Elements ** Atomos *
Registation is essential and given the event's historial popularity, we encourage you to register early to avoid disappointment.
The Future of Post is where post and vendor speakers meet to share expert knowledge, best business and technical practice and to discuss and debate points of change – both opportunities and threats. Televisual has gathered together many of the leading voices in this space who combined will shine a light on many of the challenges and possibilities you’re already aware of and possibly some that you’re not. The event content is both detailed and comprehensive but retains an informality - this is a 'community event'
The Future of Post is an upstream bespoke event comprising five 60-80minute stand alone panel discussions (some accompanied with case studies) over the course of the day exploring the post-production business, technology choices, workflow best practice and how the post market is evolving to meet new demands.
Delegates can choose to attend one 60-90minute session or all five but you do need to register as spaces are limited.
If you work in or with post, you need to be at Televisual’s Future of Post event.

THE FUTURE OF POST TIMETABLE, SESSIONS & SPEAKERS
The sessions lead with a panel discussion with leading post and vendor experts with two also leading with case studies. All of the sessions lead on best current and future practice and explore change management. What's new? What's changing and what's already changed? Where are the opportunities and what are the challenges? The format for the conference-style sessions is a panel discussion with leading post and technology experts and business managers, often supported by a case study.
9.30-10.45am The Future of Broadcast Post
A broad panel discussion ranging from the changing (PSB) broadcast ecology and declining audience figures (and revenues for commercial broadcasters), an already reported downward pressure on rates from many post companies with ever-increasing costs, the increasing commoditisation of post processes, regionalisation and Brexit. Is it a race to the bottom or will the more agile post houses find new streams of revenue and make efficiency savings to secure a better future?
Speakers include: Dave Cadle, MD, Envy Post * Rowan Bray, MD Clear Cut * George Panayiotou, Business Development Director, Films@59 * Donna Mulvey-Jones, Head of Post Production, FremantleMedia UK * (Chair - James Bennett, MD, Televisual)
11.15-12.15pm Remote Editing, VFX and Grading Workflows and the Remote MCR
What is the appetite within post and what's the demand from the customer? Is post-production becoming less location dependent? What's now practical and who's working through IP? Do post customers want to work remotely and what should be client attended sessions?

12.45-2.00pm HDR: The Devil in the Detail
From current best practice (leading with a Black Mirror Dolby Vision HDR case study for Netflix with PPS Moira Brophy and Senior Colourist Alex Gascoigne) to monitoring and colour management, test and measurement, captioning and titles, delivery formats, grading imperatives and what the publishers want.

2.30-3.45pm Storage, Archive and The Cloud
How to manage, serve and store ever larger files efficiently while exploring many of the options currently being deployed and what's next? What storage do you need for higher bandwidth, higher resolution storage? How does it all link back to the cloud and what is the cost model? What connectivity is best for what uses? This session starts with a case study of Prodigious recent Xsan migration before exploring the key concerns post companies should have before embarking on new or additional infrastructure and what are the pitfalls?

BESPOKE TECHNOLOGY & BUSINESS SESSIONS FOR POST
The Future of Post offers distinct conference-style sessions to bring you up to speed with current structural implementation and workflows. Both sessions will provide practical and relevant technology insight and give you plenty of opportunity to ask your own questions of the assembled experts and hear how your peers are mastering to HDR and embracing IP workflows and solutions.
The Future of Post event is all about sharing essential knowledge about emerging technologies and processes that should prove immediately practical to all who attend.
Each session runs for approximately 60 - 90 minutes with half-hour breaks between each session. You can register for one session or all of the sessions but with limited spaces, registration is essential.
REGISTRATION IS ESSENTIAL
You don't need to attend for the full day but you do need to register for the sessions you'd like to attend at "BOOK NOW".
The Ray Dolby Theatre holds 70 people so attendance is limited and we kindly ask that you register in advance.
Please arrive at least ten minutes before your session is due to begin.
Promotion for The Future of Post is staggered and deliberately close to the event. We recommend you register early to avoid disappointment. (The last two events have both been over-subscribed.)
Drinks and snacks will be served throughout the day and there's plenty of time to see some of the product solutions and demonstrations in the main foyer and to catch up with our assembled technology experts and your peers before and after each session.
We want you to take an active part in the discussion, so please come armed with your own questions, challenges and concerns. The Future of Post is an opportunity to get up to speed with how post companies are embracing recent technology developments as well as to hear (and see) what's coming through and to directly address the fast changing business environment in which broadcast, film and commercials post operates.
