Digital Lifestyle Expo & Symposium Series to Teach DV, Audio, Web and HDTV
TUSTIN, Calif. - July 19, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- A new education and direct buying
symposium series will show educators and the public how to harness the latest in digital
technology. The program, called the Digital Lifestyle Expo will kick off in Long Beach August
14-15, with shows following in New York City September 25-26 and Atlanta November 13-14. The
DLexpo is a "convergence program" that bridges the gap between low-cost professional
equipment and solutions and individuals who never before could afford to utilize this type of
equipment. DLexpo is presented by California Event Management.
All 2004 events will feature two-day symposiums and workshops and will introduce people to
video editing, audio production, digital photography, web design and the all-important
migration to HDTV. The program has special pricing and seminars for schools and educators, in
addition to the general public programs. All presenters are outstanding professionals whose
work is widely recognized in the digital media industry.
Instructors scheduled for 2004 series include:
- David Pogue - New York Times Technology Editor
and Macintosh Expert
- Andy Ihnatko - Chicago Sun-Times Columnist
- Hall Davidson - KOCE TV Technology Editor
- David Barrett - Video Producer and Filmmaker
- Bill LaCommare- creator of Movieworks
- Colin Smith - Founder of Photoshop Café
- Lynne LaMaster - Certified Adobe Trainer
- Cameron Barrett - Video Producer and Editor
- Josh Mellicker - Owner, DVcreators.net
- Mike Lawrence - Technology Expert, Orange County Department
The first show is at the Long Beach Convention Center (next door to the new Pike Shopping
Center) with symposium presentations in the morning, workshops each afternoon and a hands-on
expo running throughout. A special three and a half hour workshop on filmmaking with Final Cut
Pro HD is open to the paying public on Friday, August 13. Renowned trainer Josh Mellicker of
DVcreators.net will lead the workshop. Special workshops for schools and educators will also be
offered, produced in conjunction with the Orange County Department of Education. The latest
information on the program is available on the DLexpo website: http://www.dlexpo.com.
"This is a program that cuts through the noise of a thousand companies waving their hands in
the air and is what attracted me to the DLexpo," said Cameron Barrett, video producer and
former University professor who is organizing the educational offerings for DLexpo. "It's not
another trade show with workshops going on in side rooms. It's a unique approach to getting the
general public, already hungry for information and education about these tools, to find what
they've been looking for."
The DLexpo is not a traditional trade show. It is designed to show people how digital products
work and fit into their existing lifestyles. "The floor plan is designed to optimize traffic
flow to all areas of the expo," says Chris Jacobson, Managing Partner of California Event
Management, the producer of the program. "A central exhibitor demo stage and 'expert bar' are
surrounded by pavilion exhibit areas for each of the featured segments of the expo."
Featured companies and products currently include:
- Apple iLife, Final Cut Express, and Final Cut HD
- Adobe Photoshop Elements, Photoshop and GoLive CS
- Panasonic DV and 24p DV cameras
- Nikon digital cameras
- Movieworks multimedia software
- Hoodman DV accessories
- Epson printers
- eZedia interactive authoring software
- Samsung HDTV displays
- ...and many other products.
