5th Kind, Dolby.io Tout New Tools for Creatives at July 21 EES Event

While remote production has brought all sorts of benefits to the industry, it’s also brought an unexpected downside: tool fatigue.

At the July 21 inaugural, all-virtual Entertainment Evolution Symposium event, 5th Kind and Dolby.io will show that the way past this is by centralizing and integrating tools together, to reduce fatigue and make it even easier for teams to work together wherever they are.

Their breakout presentation — “Next-Gen Tools: Improving Productivity for Creatives” — will show how the companies are responding to demand by crafting products that bring teams together and facilitate communications, with 5th Kind introducing its latest feature, LIVE Rooms, an all-in-one tool representing the next evolution of entertainment collaboration.

Don Terry, chief revenue officer for 5th Kind will moderate the discussion with Steve Cronan, CEO and CTO of 5th Kind, and Rich Holmes, product lead for media with Dolby.io.

“We hope our breakout helps educate them on new innovative tools to help them securely manage LIVE real time collaboration, from any location in the world,” Terry said. “The challenges, opportunities and considerations when evaluating options for these types of remote production use cases.”

Produced by MESA, the Entertainment Evolution Symposium is a partnership between the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School and HITS, with an advisory committee represented by MESA, Pepperdine, Amazon Web Services, Apple, The David Bishop Group and TwentyOne14 Media.

The event is sponsored by Whip Media, 5th Kind, PacketFabric, Qumulo, EIDR, the Trusted Partner Network, Klio and LiveCGI.
