San Francisco, Calif., October 03, 2012 — Continuing its long tradition of serving customers with regional support channels, hyper-local educational forums, and solutions resources, Grass Valley® will host its 14th annual Latin American Technical Seminar on October 11 and 12, at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress hotel in Orlando, Florida. Current and potential customers looking for best-in-class solutions that address real-world workflow and business issues are welcome to attend the free seminar.
Prior to the Technical Seminar, Grass Valley will also host a two-day summit (October 9-10) for its regional reseller community that will provide the latest company, product and solutions information, while introducing new marketing and sales initiatives. Both seminars will include a full slate of sessions led by Grass Valley experts along with invaluable hands-on workshops as well as networking activities. Technical session topics will range from deploying IT-centric technologies to managing digital assets, and are all designed to help navigate the current industry landscape with existing infrastructures.
"Latin American resellers are an important part of Grass Valley's go-to-market strategy," said Ariel Sardinas, Senior Director of Latin America at Grass Valley. "The two-day summit serves as a way to strengthen resellers' knowledge base, develop regional strategies, and also express Grass Valley's appreciation for their hard work and dedication.
In addition, a series of hands-on demonstrations of Grass Valley solutions will include the new LDX Series™ camera (with 3G Triax), LDK 8000 Elite camera (with 3G Fiber), K2 Edge™ Smart Playout Center, new K2 Dyno® S with K2 Summit® 3G, EDIUS® Pro 6.5, GV STRATUS™ media workflow application framework, and the new Karrera® Video Production Center switcher.
