WASHINGTON — A strong lineup of speakers, sessions and exhibitors are set for the 2015 Government Video Expo, to be held December 1-3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The show is sponsored by NewBay Media, a leading publisher of digital content creation media.
Leading the lineup is the session “Police Body Cameras and the Urban Patrol,” a keynote offered by Cathy L. Lanier, the chief of police for the Washington, DC Metropolitan Police Department. Chief Lanier’s presentation will discuss her department’s experience with police body cameras and will touch on the issues raised with the use of these devices, including what they mean to the department, its officers and the legal system.
NATIONAL DRONE SHOW
This year, Government Video Expo is co-located with the National Drone Show, a conference and product showcase focused on UAS video capture technology, a market that is projected to be a multi-billion dollar opportunity over the next 10 years. Drawing thousands of drone technology users and buyers from the government and commercial media sectors, the National Drone Show features a flying cage for drone demonstrations, intensive training sessions, and on-site discussions and presentations.
EXPANDED TRAINING & EDUCATION
Government Video Expo will also offer the DC Post|Production Conference, a three-day, three-track conference presented by Future Media Concepts that provides intensive training on production and postproduction technologies and techniques. The full schedule can be viewed at www.gvexpo.com/dcppc.
