2010 Storage Visions Conference Now Open for Presentations, Sponsors and Exhibitors

Conference Theme: Bytes Into Bucks -- Digital Storage Creates New Wealth!

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - June 25, 2009) - The Entertainment Storage Alliance announces the Ninth Annual Storage Visions Conference to be held at the Riviera Hotel Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 5 & 6, 2010. The Storage Visions Conference is the premier event bringing together digital storage oriented people from throughout the digital content creation, distribution and use value chain. Join CEOs, industry leaders, manufacturers, and end users at Storage Visions 2010 in a relaxed and informative environment where you can network with world changers and industry titans and discover the trends that will drive economic recovery and new profitability.

2010 is the beginning of a new decade, ushering in enormous changes in the way we know the world and the people around us. According to Tom Coughlin, conference organizer, "The next decade will give us new tools to capture and organize our lives, more content created by more people and more ways to distribute, monetize and make that content useful. From cloud storage to life-logs, from external direct attached and networked storage to the increasingly high resolution content that we will surround ourselves with wherever we go -- we live in an age when the personal and collective memory of humans will reach new levels." He continues, "The nine year old 2010 Storage Visions Conference is experienced in showing how these memories will be the source of unprecedented personal understanding, management of the world around us and the basis of a more sustainable and adventurous world."

The pre-CES Storage Visions Conference will include sessions on critical topics. These range from enabling and supporting technologies for richer mobile devices, professional and personal content creators' needs for digital storage and content management, storage for the next generation of static and mobile games, online storage services and external storage devices. Storage technologies will be discussed including next generation hard disk drive, flash memory and optical recording, storage for content delivery networks and new storage-related standards that will change the world. Attendees will also get valuable perspectives from analysts and channel experts on investments and trends for digital storage in the content value chain and storage for richer personal content capture and use.

Speaker, sponsor and exhibit proposals on these and other topics are now being accepted at the conference web site:

The well attended and well reported 2009 Storage Visions Conference featured keynote talks by Dr. Paul Liao from Panasonic, Wendy Alysworth from SMPTE and Warner Bros., Jim Elliot from Samsung Semiconductor and Rab Mukraj from NBC.
