TIVA at The Video Show 2019
TIVA can't wait for The Video Show (a.k.a. the event formerly known as the GV Expo), running December 4–5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. This year sees the event focusing on the entire gamut of video production — including broadcast, independent film, sports, news, corporate video, government video, education, streaming and event video — so there will be plenty for everyone to take advantage of, including more than 100 sessions on eight presentation stages, as well as a dedicated screening room and an exhibit floor where attendees can get some hands-on experience with the latest products and technologies, showcasing companies including AJA Video Systems, Sony, Canon, Nikon, Barbizon, and many others.
And after a wildly successful pilot project at last year's event, TIVA is thrilled to be providing a live stream from the event floor, interviewing industry movers and shakers across the course of the two days!
Moreover, if you come and see TIVA at booth 300 at any point during the show, you can take advantage of special discounts that will only be available at The Video Show: 50% off of new TIVA memberships, and 25% off of annual renewals! (These discounts are only available for registering or renewing at the show itself.)
You can register for the show at www.thevideoshow.com/begin. Registration for the exhibit floor itself — allowing access to the 80+ exhibitors on the show floor — is FREE so long as you preregister by December 3. Or you can sign up for a premium Studio pass to enjoy not only the main floor, but to see some of the fantastic panels and robust content that will be presented. A one-day Studio Access Pass is $49, and a two-day pass is $75. But as a special discount for TIVA members, you can use the code TIVA to save $25 off of those rates! But be sure to register in advance — if you put it off until the event itself, that floor-access registration goes up to $25.
Speaking of which, TIVA will be presenting at not one, not two, but three panels this year:

This really is a fantastic opportunity to see some great new advances in the field of video, as well as catching up with your colleagues (and meeting new collaborators for the future). We really hope to see as many of you at the event as possible!
