Join us for a special presentation from film editor Vashi Nedomansky as he shares the 4K workflow he used editing the Waiting for Lighting documentary. He’ll also discuss using both an HP Z Workstation and Z Mobile Workstation, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors seamlessly with Adobe Premiere Pro CC to natively edit 4K and 5K files to create four nationally broadcast spots and a 20 minute epilogue for the film that describes Danny Way’s epic fall at the XGames. Additionally Vashi will talk about how the changes in technology, both speed and integration, are enabling individuals to create so much more by themselves.
