Edge Music Network Announces Launch of “Play it Forward”

Mon, 04/06/2018 - 22:08

Game-Changing Video Syndication Platform Evolves to Bring a Fair Compensation Structure to an Industry Dominated and Controlled by Major Labels and Subscription Services

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Edge Music Network (EMN), a music video streaming service delivering on-demand video content through a powerful syndication platform, is proud to announce the launch of its one-of-a-kind “Play it Forward” feature – designed to connect music fans with artists in a whole new way. With artist and fan-friendly features built from the ground up – EMN allows users to interact, book a band, watch their favorite artists' new music video releases, watch live performances and now with "Play it Forward" fans can support their favorite artists with monetary donations via the click of a button. Created to enable a fair compensation structure for artists, EMN both ensures artists and labels get the payment they deserve, and fans get uninterrupted real-time access to the music videos they love—anytime, anywhere.

"In partnership with labels, musicians, music publishers and technology partners, EMN has evolved to bring a fair compensation structure to an industry dominated and controlled by major labels and subscription services, that for far too long have determined what artists get paid," says CEO Elizabeth Vargas, who founded EMN in 2011. "At EMN, we keep the math simple with a 90/10 split in favor of the artists, which is a tremendous shift from the 10/90 split typical of most streaming platforms."
               
“Play it Forward” allows fans to support their favorite artists by navigating to the artist’s page and selecting “Play It Forward”—then entering a one-time donation of desired amount or “subscribe (and get no ads)”—a monthly donation of $1.99/mo. Each artist will directly receive the money they earn through the new feature. The user will also be able to donate and subscribe to one or more artists at the same time to support all the artists they love. This concept goes hand in hand with EMN's goodwill mission. In addition to providing a new platform that prioritizes artistry over corporate profits, EMN dedicates 10 percent of its advertising revenue to charitable causes such as those that feed the hungry, aid victims of natural disasters and support homeless veterans.
               
"We're on a trajectory to revolutionize one of the world’s most valuable industries with an exciting new platform that exists as much to help artists extend their reach and realize lucrative monetization opportunities, as it does to serve as a catalyst for change," Vargas adds. "With a collective community of global citizens that believe in the universal and transformative power of music, we are determined to make the world a better place."

EMN is available through the Apple ITunes Store and Google Play. For more information, visit www.edgemusic.com

VITAS HEALTHCARE OPENS FIRST FREESTANDING INPATIENT HOSPICE UNIT IN NEW JERSEY

Mon, 04/06/2018 - 19:52

The New Facility at St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital will Serve Terminally Ill Patients with Complex Symptoms

Wayne, NJ, June 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VITAS Healthcare, the nation’s leading provider of end-of-life care, has opened a new, free-standing Inpatient Hospice Unit (IPU) at St. Joseph’s Wayne Hospital, caring for patients from Passaic, Bergen, Morris and Essex counties. VITAS currently operates 28 IPUs nationwide and this is the first, free-standing hospice IPU in northern New Jersey. The VITAS IPU is located at 220 Hamburg Turnpike, Wayne, NJ 07470.

Hospice IPUs, like the New Jersey facility, enable VITAS to provide care for hospice patients whose symptoms have become unmanageable in their home-care setting while adhering to the patient’s wishes for end of life care. The company leads the way in the development of hospice and palliative care to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.

“Though many patients choose to receive hospice care at home, the option of an inpatient hospice unit is invaluable when symptoms such as pain, respiratory distress, anxiety and others cannot otherwise be managed,” said Robert Danbury, VITAS Healthcare of New Jersey North General Manager. “The new IPU will allow our patients to receive the unique care they require, but still feel like they are in the comfort of their own home.”

The 9,800 square foot facility is designed to make patients feel like they are in the comfort of their own home and not in a clinical setting. Expected to serve approximately 500 patients each year, the IPU has 12 resident rooms that include private bathrooms, a spacious family room, a quiet room and kitchen amenities. It’s also equipped with support spaces where interdisciplinary teams of physicians, nurses, hospice aides, social workers, chaplains, volunteers and bereavement support staff members can attend to the medical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of patients and their families.

“There is a growing demand for quality, compassionate care in this community, and we are honored to fulfill that need,” said Nick Westfall, CEO of VITAS Healthcare. “We look forward to providing patients and their families with the highest quality of end-of-life care and playing an integral role in the continuum of care for northern New Jersey.”

In addition, all hospice-appropriate patients will benefit from VITAS’ unique care model ensuring that only nurses provide hands-on, compassionate care at the bedside. VITAS also offers a wide range of holistic services to enhance the quality of life for patients and families including:

  • Lavender Touch: A gentle hand massage administered by trained volunteers that offers added comfort, support, and one-on-one attention.
  • Music Therapy: A visit led by a certified music therapist to patients with the goal of meeting physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and spiritual needs through music. 
  • Paw Pals: Loving animals—and their owners—who visit patients to provide comfort.
  • Life Review: A written, audio or video biography of a hospice patient, provided by specially-trained volunteers.
  • VITAS’ award-winning Veterans Program.

VITAS is actively looking for exceptional caregivers in New Jersey that want to make a difference in the lives of patients and their families as well as their own. The company is committed to hiring, training and mentoring highly skilled clinical and administrative staff. For more information, please contact General Manager Robert Danbury at Robert.Danbury@vitas.com.

Higher & Higher: The Jackie Wilson Story to Debut at Hologram USA Theater in Hollywood on June 7

Fri, 01/06/2018 - 01:24

The legendary R&B star will return via hologram in a showcase of his greatest hits (“Higher and Higher”, “Reet Petite”) and the highs and tragic lows of his life story; Huge influence on Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley finally gets his due in the only truly lifelike hologram format

Hollywood, CA, May 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hologram USA Networks Inc. today announced the date for the launch of its new hologram stage show, Higher & Higher: The Jackie Wilson Story. The show, from the leader of hologram technology founded by Greek billionaire Alki David,  tracks the wild life of the R&B star, dubbed Mr. Excitement, all the way to the end when Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley paid his hospital bills. In the same 30-minute narrative format that Hologram USA pioneered with its successful show, Billie Holiday Alive!,  the new show dramatizes scenes from the legend’s life--including the sex, drugs and rock & roll-- in addition to presenting his stage presence in all its glory.

Higher & Higher: The Jackie Wilson Story will debut with a red carpet premiere on June 7, 2018 at the Hologram USA Theater at 6656 Hollywood Boulevard. It will be followed by daily shows. A video and remix of the song “Higher and Higher” will also be released.


Wilson is an R&B and Rock & Roll hero whose time for new recognition is long overdue. An early bandmate of Motown founder Berry Gordy, Wilson was at the heart of the creation of modern pop music in America in the 1950’s. His electrifying stage presence caused riots, and he is credited with having created many of the moves that gave James Brown, Michael Jackson and Elvis their careers.


“When I first heard the music of  Jackie Wilson, I was incredibly moved. But when I spoke with his family about his life, I knew we needed to produce our next show about him,” says Hologram USA CEO Alki David. “We’re creating an immersive experience where audiences can discover not just the music but the lives of great artists. In the show we see him rise and fall, love and fight, and invent music that changed history.”


The show uses the same patented hologram technology as Billie Holiday Live!, the Hologram USA Theater’s first show--which has been seen by thousands on the Walk of Fame since its debut in November.  That show was praised for bringing Holiday back for modern audiences with Broadway World among others saying the experience was, “life changing.” (The Holiday show will continue to run in tandem with the new show).


The Hollywood Boulevard theater is the first dedicated hologram theater in the world. The next three, in a planned roll-out of hundred and  fifty theaters nationwide, will open soon in Chicago, Indianapolis and Foxwoods, CT. The theater is optimized for VR streaming of hologram events over parent company FilmOn Networks’ global streaming content platform, and for beaming live events to multiple theaters. A pilot music listening party for rapper Chief Keef drew standing room only crowds in December.  The Hologram USA theater serves Swissx CBD Oil popcorn and chocolates at its concession stand.


Hologram USA controls the patented Pepper’s Ghost technology behind the famous Tupac Shakur and Michael Jackson holograms and is the only company that creates lifelike, life-size images. Hologram USA has partnered with the Sony Pictures, Universal Studios, the House of Dior, Disney/ABC, Anheuser Busch and the Universal Music Group to create hologram events all over the world, including  using live telepresence to “beam” Jimmy Kimmel, Florida Georgia Line, The Band Perry, Jack Black,  Julian Assange and India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 


For press enquiries and access to the premiere contact: Owen Phillips owentphillips@gmail.com 310-383-4991

TORONTO, May 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V:YOO) (OTC:YOOIF), the leading secure digital media management and distribution company, today announced its results for the first quarter ended March 31st, 2018.

Revenue for Q1 was $1,949,090, 12% higher than in the same period in 2017 and 2% higher than Q4 2017. Normalized EBITDA for Q1 of $179,566 increased by 49% over the same period in 2017 and increased by 19% over the previous quarter. Net income in Q1 was $84,971, 159% improvement over Q1 2017 and 4% decrease over Q4 2017.

Advertising revenue of $1,229,455 in Q1, marked a 20% increase over the same period in 2017 and 4% increase over the previous quarter. The increase in revenue was a result of continuous growth in new customers and increased sales volumes with existing customers.

Entertainment revenue remains flat. Revenue in Q1 2018 was $719,635, up 1% over Q1 2017 and down 1% over previous quarter. Higher awards management revenue was recorded in the quarter but offset by a general decline in volume of video delivery and subscription fees.

“Starting in the second quarter of last year, the Company initiated a change of leadership and rebuilding of the sales team in the Advertising business,” said Gary Moss, President and CEO of YANGAROO. “Additionally, the mandate of the team was adjusted to focus on larger customer opportunities and during the last half of 2017, the team started to build a pipeline of target deals.  Closing sales to larger customers is a more lengthy process.  During the first quarter, this new pipeline started to deliver meaningful new customer wins. The Company is confident that the flow of new customer wins from the team will continue into the future and will support the growth of Advertising revenues especially in the last half of 2018.”

Total operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $1,901,097, 14% higher than the previous year and 5% higher than the previous quarter. Income from operations in Q1 was $47,993, 28% lower than the previous year and 53% lower than the previous quarter. The changes were primarily due to higher value of stock options granted and salary adjustments taken place in Q1 2018. Excluding the impact of non-cash and non-operating costs, the first quarter of 2018 had a normalized cash flow of $179,566.

Summary of operating results for first quarter ended March 31, 2018:

Yandex Announces Expansion of Alice Intelligent Assistant Ecosystem with new Smart Speaker and Skills Platform

Tue, 29/05/2018 - 14:00

MOSCOW and AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, May 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yandex (NASDAQ:YNDX), a technology company that builds intelligent products and services powered by machine learning, has unveiled Yandex.Station, the first smart speaker designed for the Russian market and Yandex’s first hardware product.   

Yandex.Station is equipped with Yandex’s Russian-speaking intelligent assistant, Alice, which helps millions of users navigate their daily routines with tens of millions of daily interactions.  Alice has been available on mobile since launch in October 2017 and is soon arriving in the car with Yandex’s connected car platform.

“With the introduction of Yandex.Station, we are excited to bring our intelligent assistant from mobile devices into the Russian home,” says Konstantin Kruglov, Director of Experimental Products at Yandex. “Our high-quality smart speaker offers Russian users the benefits of a highly localized intelligent assistant, unique options for audio and video streaming, and superior sound quality.”  

Alice is built with advanced conversational skills and an understanding of context giving it an ability to both chat with users and to manage a range of tasks such as checking the weather or traffic conditions or finding a restaurant through Yandex services. Combined with the recent public release of Yandex.Dialogues, a skills platform for third-party developers, Alice provides even more assistance with over 4,000 skills available at launch, with services ranging from ordering pizza from Papa John’s, to exercising with Reebok, or finding flights with S7 Airlines. These skills can incorporate both chatbots and live human customer service operators to provide the best possible user experience.

Yandex.Station provides a complete in-home multimedia entertainment experience. As the first smart speaker with both audio and video capabilities, it not only plays music but also streams films, videos and television through its HDMI port to any connected display. Currently, Yandex.Station has access to Yandex's video streaming service KinoPoisk, as well as a wide range of other content including premium local video service providers ivi and Amediateka.

Developed by Yandex engineers, Yandex.Station features a proprietary array of seven microphones, which enable the device to accurately hear voice commands from anywhere in the room. Yandex.Station delivers advanced sound quality that exceeds the quality offered by most other audio systems in its class, and has a removable speaker grill for enjoying the sound in its purest form.

Yandex.Station features five acoustic components: two 20mm 10W tweeter drivers, one 85mm 30W woofer driver, two 95mm passive radiators. It is Bluetooth-compatible and measures 14х14х23cm. Total system power: 50W. Frequency range: 50-20,000Hz. Signal-to-noise ratio: 96dB.

Yandex.Station will cost 9,990 roubles ($160) and will be available this summer. With the purchase of Yandex.Station, consumers will receive a one-year complimentary subscription to Yandex.Plus. Yandex.Plus is a bundled subscription offering combining multiple Yandex services, including a full subscription to Yandex.Music, advertising-free video streaming on KinoPoisk, in addition to discounts on Yandex.Taxi and Yandex.Drive, and many others.

El Media & Key Digital Bring Downtown Nashville to Times Square

Thu, 24/05/2018 - 19:00

Printers Alley features live music, traditional southern dishes, and the latest AV technology for the best customer experience this side of the Mason-Dixon Line

Mount Vernon, NY, May 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Opening a much anticipated bar and restaurant in NYC is no small feat. Add in the high-traffic and even higher expectations that come with opening any business in Time’s Square and the already large feat turns into a situation requiring precision with flawless electronic hardware and control system performance.

Host Restaurants, owner & operator of Printers Alley and other iconic NYC dining destinations, required the highest quality and most reliable hardware for their AV system. They also required a control GUI built exactly to their specifications. When searching for industry leading hardware and software needs, the installers at El Media Group turned to Key Digital. Since 1999 Key Digital has lead the constantly evolving A/V industry with a suite of the most flexible and functional hardware and software products. Compass Control Pro has elevated the company into a literal one-stop-shop for A/V distribution and control needs. 

Key Digital has become our go to offering for our bar and restaurant customers.  With Key Digital hardware and Compass Control, we give our client a reliable system with a custom-fit controller at the most cost-effective price possible”, said Ernie Lake of El Media Group. “In every bar and restaurant that I’ve install Compass Control, I have not yet run into any GUI design request that the software couldn’t accommodate.”

The AV equipment blends seamlessly with décor inspired by Nashville’s iconic Printers Alley. 17 displays are installed in two levels of bar and dining spaces. Each of the displays has full independent matrix selection of the sources playing sporting, news, signage, and more. Private and semi-private dining rooms share and view content on the central AV system, making Printers Alley the ideal venue for hosting events for NYC’s countless corporate and private organizations. 

When asked their thoughts on the authenticity of Printers Alley, one guest commented, “I have never been to Nashville but now I don’t know if I should even bother, because [Printer’s Alley] seems like it can fulfill that bucket list visit for me!”

El Media’s Compass Control Pro installation delivers a user-friendly GUI that makes controlling the distributed video and audio system easy. Bartenders, servers, and management pick up their iOS devices and enter a single page to control content on each screen or change the channels of the satellite boxes. Each audio zone is able to listen to a customized music channel from El Media’s El Music Player.  Volume is set for each zone through Compass Control Pro’s IP driver for Symetrix audio DSP products. To maximize efficiency, the Compass Control Pro GUI for Printers Alley features an assortment of customized buttons that completely configure Printers Alley with a single press, automating a process that would otherwise take 20 minutes to complete. 

Whether customers are popping in to the bar for a drink in a place with flair, sliding up to the table to enjoy the amazing traditional southern menu, or taking the elite route in the private party spaces, the only thing they’re going to notice about the equipment and control system is that it works precisely and that the staff spends virtually no time controlling the displays - and that’s exactly how it should be.  

About Key Digital®

Led by the “Father of DVD”, Mike Tsinberg, Key Digital® is an InfoComm, CEDIA, CES, and NAHB award winning manufacturer of professional distributed video and control system equipment.   

Since 1999, Key Digital has lead the constantly evolving  A/V industry by designing products that deliver industry leading quality, performance, and reliability to corporate, bar & restaurant, digital signage, education, government, and house of worship applications.  

Key Digital products are designed and engineered in-house in Mount Vernon, NY.  Superior quality, ease-of-installation, and versatility are the result of strenuous research, development, and testing. Expertise and unparalleled knowledge have created a unique hardware-software suite solution ideal for the consultants, designers, and installation firms of the A/V industry.

Wed, 23/05/2018 - 18:36

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

MONTREAL, May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stingray Digital Group Inc. (“Stingray”) (TSX:RAY.A)(TSX:RAY.B) today announced that it has completed its previously announced subscription receipt offerings for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $138 million.

Public Offering of Subscription Receipts on a Bought Deal Basis

Stingray issued 7,981,000 subscription receipts (the “Public Subscription Receipts”) from treasury at a price of $10.40 per Public Subscription Receipt, on a bought deal basis, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $83 million (the “Public Offering”), through a syndicate of underwriters (the “Underwriters”) co-led by National Bank Financial Inc. and BMO Capital Markets.

Stingray has granted the Underwriters an option (the “Over-Allotment Option”) to purchase up to an additional 1,197,150 Public Subscription Receipts at any time up to 30 days after closing of the Public Offering for additional gross proceeds of up to $12 million.

Each Public Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to receive, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions and without payment of additional consideration or further action, either one subordinate voting share of Stingray or one variable subordinate voting share of Stingray, depending on whether the holder is a “Canadian” under the Broadcasting Act (Canada).

The Public Subscription Receipts will commence trading today on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) under the symbols RAY.R and RAY.N.

Private Placement of Subscription Receipts
Concurrently with the closing of the Public Offering, Stingray has issued 3,846,100 subscription receipts (the “Private Placement Subscription Receipts”) from treasury at a price of $10.40 per Private Placement Subscription Receipt to an affiliate of Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (“La Caisse”) for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $40 million (the “Concurrent Private Placement”).

La Caisse is entitled to purchase up to an additional 576,915 Private Placement Subscription Receipts if and when the Over-Allotment Option is exercised by the Underwriters, for additional gross proceeds of up to $6 million.

Each Private Placement Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to receive, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions and without payment of additional consideration or further action, one subordinate voting share of Stingray.

The Private Placement Subscription Receipts are subject to a four month hold from the closing date of the Concurrent Private Placement.

Exercise of Subscription Rights
As a result of the Public Offering and the Concurrent Private Placement, 8978832 Canada Inc., a member of the Boyko Group and a holder of multiple voting shares of Stingray, has exercised subscription rights attached to the multiple voting shares of Stingray and subscribed for 1,452,850 subscription receipts (the “Pre-emptive Subscription Receipts”) from treasury at a price of $10.40 per Pre-emptive Subscription Receipt for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $15 million (the “Pre-emptive Rights Exercise” and, together with the Public Offering and the Concurrent Private Placement, collectively the “Offerings”).

Each Pre-emptive Subscription Receipt entitles the holder thereof to receive, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions and without payment of additional consideration or further action, one multiple voting share of Stingray.

The Pre-emptive Rights Exercise was funded by Investissement Québec and Le Fonds de solidarité FTQ through follow-on investments in the share capital of 8978832 Canada Inc.

The Pre-emptive Subscription Receipts are subject to a four month hold from the closing date of the Pre‑emptive Rights Exercise.

Stingray will use the proceeds of the Offerings, funds drawn on new credit facilities and cash on hand to finance (i) the purchase price and related transaction and financing costs payable in connection with the previously announced acquisition of Newfoundland Capital Corporation Limited (the “Acquisition”) and (ii) the repayment of an existing credit facility.

Avid Enters Multiyear Agreement with Seneca College to Upgrade Media Creation and Production Teaching Facilities across Eight Campuses

Wed, 23/05/2018 - 18:28

Toronto’s Seneca College adopts Avid Media Campus to deliver state-of-the-art tools and curriculum preparing students for film and TV career success

BURLINGTON, Mass., May 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avid® (Nasdaq:AVID), the leading technology provider of software tools and platforms that power the media and entertainment industry, today announced that Seneca College of Applied Arts and Technology has become an Avid Media Campus site standardizing on Avid’s platform-based workflows across its eight campuses to ensure students college-wide can learn on the leading technologies and tools for film and television creation, production and distribution. This includes the Avid Learning Partner Program, which provides the curriculum and associated materials to enable Seneca to train its students to become Avid Certified.

Avid Media Campus schools get significant education discounts on all Avid products. As one of Canada’s premier institutions for higher learning in media creation and production, Seneca’s School of Media earned its reputation through its commitment for giving students first-hand experience with state-of-the-art technology. The school gives instruction in a range of disciplines, including Film and TV, Broadcast and Journalism, as well as web-based multimedia and video, and provides access to media industry leaders and highly sought-after experience in professional settings where knowledge of Avid tools and solutions ensures opportunities for students to stand out.

“The Avid Media Campus program will allow us to plan where we will be in the next five years,” said Adrian Klymenko, Senior Media Specialist and Avid Certified Support Representative (ACSR) at Seneca. “Avid’s commitment to support, training, and hardware and software licensing models has allowed us to establish an upgrade pathway for our studios, suites, classrooms and supporting infrastructure. Having a unified support structure, complete with ACSR certifications and access to Avid Professional Services makes for a smooth process and transition for planning and implementing hardware and software upgrades, including any day-to-day technical or operational issues that may arise.”

To maintain its position as the top post-secondary school in Ontario and enable students to develop the skills needed to succeed in a competitive job market, Seneca needed to upgrade its outdated media production infrastructure. To meet these needs, Seneca has signed a five-year Avid Media Campus agreement that will result in college-wide adoption of Avid’s industry leading tools for audio and video editing, asset management, storage, graphics, music notation and publishing, and content ingest and playout. This agreement also includes a “Connecting Education to Industry” (CETI) programming partnership that will help Seneca students connect with local and international media companies who use Avid in their workflows.  As an official Avid Learning Partner as well, Seneca will receive training and certification for its staff, and deliver official course materials and exams that will ultimately prepare and certify students for proficiency in media creation, production and distribution.

“We are committed to implementing innovative technologies and services to offer greater learning experiences to our students,” said Radha Krishnan, AVP, Information Services, Seneca. “Establishing Seneca as the most advanced institution in Canada providing cutting edge media technologies is a major step in fulfilling our commitment.”

Avid channel partner Deltech Communications is supporting the implementation of MediaCentral® across all Seneca campuses. Seneca’s new workflow will include Avid NEXIS®, the media industry’s first and only software-defined storage platform; MediaCentral | Production Management for advanced file and workflow management; and FastServe™ media servers for ingest and playout. Seneca has also invested in Avid creative tools including Media Composer® nonlinear editing systems, Pro Tools® digital audio workstations, and the Maestro™ Graphics Family for on-screen graphics creation and management. Maestro | Designer will allow students to create state-of-the-art real-time broadcast graphics while Maestro | Virtual Set will enable them to create high-end virtual environments.

“Through Avid Media Campus and the Avid Learning Partner program, Seneca is giving students the clear advantage of learning their craft on the tools that media professionals use to build their careers,” said Alan Hoff, Vice President of Market Solutions at Avid. “Seneca students will gain valuable skills to let them stand out from the field of aspiring professionals to find work with film, broadcast, and post production companies that rely on Avid daily for their mission critical workflows.”

Avid Media Campus – Enabling the next generation of media professionals
With flexible volume licensing and affordable industry solutions tailored to the specific needs of each school, the Avid Media Campus program modernizes campus media production and helps educators better prepare students for careers in the media and entertainment industry. It provides a foundation to integrate campus media production with technology for classroom and remote learning programs, and offers deeper partnership engagement, industry connections, and collaborative workflows for campus-wide production.
