The organisers of the forthcoming New Zealand Digital Solutions Expo announced today that registrations for the seminars and workshops being held in conjunction with the expo are now being accepted. Seats are limited and registration is essential. This can be done from their web site at http://www.digitalexpo.co.nz.
The Expo promises to be bigger and better this year with the
addition of the TelstraClear Centre for workshops, seminars and
displays. The emphasis this year will be Digital Video, Digital Audio,
Digital Photography, Digital Printing and Digital Communications and is
open to the general public at 10am each day. There will be an extensive
collection of the latest products on display from major technology
companies such as Panasonic, Epson, Canon, Sony, Toshiba, Kodak, Apple
and JVC. They will be joined with an impressive array of dealers
representing many other major technology manufacturers and suppliers.
This is the third time that a show has been held in Wellington which fully highlights the innovations that are signalling the ever increasing move to digital technologies in many areas of our daily lives. The digital media sector is enormously complex and varied, comprising a disparate range of services and products, across a broad range of applications, platforms and tools, and industry sectors. As such, a number of digital media areas have been prioritised as a focal point and are being seen as the development of the Digital Hub.
In case you haven't tripped across this term lately, it's the notion that the personal computer is alive and well, and that it resides at the centre of your digital universe. Through high speed connectivity such as FireWire (IEEE1394), USB, PC cards, and Wireless Networking, you move multimedia files from cameras, DV recorders, scanners, and MP3 players to computers.
On Friday 24th September in conjunction with the expo, the second national MovieFest short movie competition and screening festival will commence in Te Papa?
