GVExpo 2004

GVExpo 2004

The Seventh Annual Government Video Technology Expo 2004 will run from October 6-7 at the Washington DC Convention Center. This year, over 75 exhibitors will be presenting upwards of 250 new technologies and services. More exhibitors than ever before plus the expected increase of attendees to reach at least 8,000, mark the continued growth of the East Coasts largest technology expo.

GVExpo is known for presenting creative new ideas and techniques to communications professionals involved in Production, Content Creation, Editing, AV, Multimedia, Digitization, Law Enforcement, Military, and Education. In its six-year history, GVExpo has brought together under one roof leading manufacturers, multimedia gurus, and primary government officials. The only way GVExpo 2004 will be different is that it will be bigger and better. Nowhere else does the opportunity exist to learn from and network with such a diverse, powerful purchasing and selling assembly. This year includes exhibitors such as Adobe, Avid, Canon, Fuji, JVC, Panasonic, Sharp, and Sony. (For a full list of exhibitors, click here.) The FREE show floor gives attendees a chance to interact with such influential manufacturers and see hands-on demonstrations of new products.

GVExpo regularly affords premier training opportunities in a wide range of video, audio, and multimedia technology and services. GVExpo 2004 features 4 tracks of over 40 sessions geared towards the changing technologies affecting so many areas of media production today. Sessions this year will include tips for transporting video over IP, simple solutions for the classroom for broadcast educators, and instruction in digital TV, PMCP, DVD authoring, digital imaging, streaming media, and more. With the inclusion of the DigitalMediaDC Conference and the LEVA International Training Conference, GVExpo attendees have hundreds of ways to learn about whats new in video technology.

Additionally, GVExpo is the place to see the best in the business at the FREE 4th Annual Star Awards. Since its induction in 2001, the Star Awards have honored excellence in training, promotional, and news/information videos produced in the public sector. Taking place during the Opening Night Reception, the Star Awards share the spotlight with the FREE Keynote Address, a presentation that always manages to impress. GVExpo 2004 welcomes presenter Armando Oliu from NASA's Kennedy Space Center, who will discuss the space agencys use of video in its "Return to Flight" plans.

GVExpo consistently grows beyond the expectations of both exhibitors and attendees. The 2004 exhibition is already promising to follow in that tradition, providing the best and latest information available.
