Applications Now Open!

Showcasing Industry Progress Towards the 2030 Vision

MovieLabs meets with organizations large and small that have aligned their strategy and products around the 2030 Vision and its 10 Principals for the future of media creation.

We created the 2030 Showcase Program so we can share the innovative work these industry leaders are doing with the rest of the M&E community.  Now in its second year, the 2030 Showcase Program has created some great case studies that demonstrate how the Principles of the 2030 Vision have been leveraged in workflows from pre-production, through sound and visual effects pipelines, to broadcast and streaming distribution and into rapid access archives.

Submissions for the 2030 Showcase program are now open year round – whenever you have an meaningful case study – share it with MovieLabs and submit to be part of the 2030 Showcase Program!

All the details for your submission are included below, we look forward to seeing the amazing work you have been doing!

Program Benefits

Organizations that participate in the 2030 Showcase Program will be recognized by MovieLabs in the following ways:

Case Study

MovieLabs will publish a case study detailing how the product/service aligns with the 2030 Vision. A library of selected 2030 case studies are hosted online at Movielabs.com for all to see, each highlighting its achievements, and the corresponding 2030 Principles that have been put into practice. MovieLabs promotes the case studies on it’s website and social channels.

Technology Sandbox

As we continue to develop and publish further architectures and specifications for the 2030 Vision, MovieLabs may include Showcase partners in potential MovieLabs sandbox development projects, additional case studies or multi-party implementations.

Industry Outreach

MovieLabs reference participating Showcase companies in the industry outreach work we do to promote the 2030 Vision including in videos, keynotes, events and social media posts. MovieLabs has also promoted Showcase participants at major tradeshows including HPA Tech Retreat and IBC.

MovieLabs 2030 Vision for Media Creation

MovieLabs also makes available exclusive promotional assets to companies selected for the Showcase to enable organizations to promote their case studies and their alignment to the 2030 Vision.

You can include a demonstration of the product or service and include which partners are also  involved (if applicable).
