The team who produced Wolfstock Live traveled to Manhattan to attend the Content and Communications World Expo (CCW) and showcased their use of The Padcaster on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013.

Josh Apter, inventor of The Padcaster, invited School of Journalism students and faculty to attend his presentation, “Fast, Cheap and Good: Pick 3,” at the Streaming Media Theater in the Javits Convention Center. Apter presented on how to shoot, edit and deliver video productions using the iPad and a Padcaster.

During Apter’s presentation, Technical Manager for the School of Journalism Phil Altiere led students in producing a mini news show for the CCW audience using the same technology as they did during the Wolfstock Live broadcast.

CCW is an annual event with over one hundred vendor booths and many workshops and presentations.

According to its website, CCW “brings together the most inspired minds in media and entertainment production, post and distribution from around the world” to “interact with the latest products, explore technological innovations firsthand, and hear from experts who shape the industry at every stage.” More than 6,000 people attend.

Apple Senior Systems Engineer for High Education Jason McHugh also attended the event to watch the SOJ at work.
