2017 June 1st Downtown LA Morning Meeting

Thursday, June 1st, 7:15 am - 10:00 am
Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (Lobby Auditorium)
Speaker: Artin Nazarian
Topic: Netflix and Chill! The End-To-End Digital Distribution Supply Chain That Makes This Possible

Artin Nazarian
We went from bulky VHS tapes to very large laserdiscs to small digital discs and now just zeros and ones that magically travel through the air and turn into video and sound on your favorite virtual movie stores like iTunes, Netflix, and Amazon. As the movie watching experience has simplified for consumers, what happens behind scenes has never been more complex. In this talk, Artin will go over the end-to-end digital distribution supply chain and what it takes to distribute content to your favorite digital movie store and the important role project managers play in the process.
