Did you know that if this music is not registered with performing rights societies, you are missing out on a valuable source of revenue? In this session, Ivy Tombak, President - Litchfield Entertainment Co., Inc. will discuss the benefits of registering original music with the performing rights societies and how to navigate the complexities of the royalty collection process so that no money is left on the table that is rightfully yours.

CGI (computer generated imaging) gives companies and their ad agencies the ability to create ultra-realistic product images without using photography. These images can be multipurposed for all media platforms: TV, print, Web, social-media apps and more. In addition to this boundless flexibility, CGI hugely reduces photography and post-photography expenses such as retouching and color correction. Basically anything can be created in CGI from cellphones to cars to soda cans. In this session, Rob Bender, Chief Technology Officer - MCT, and Mike Banka, Senior Executive Account Management - MCT, will discuss the new technologies in CGI, applications, as well as the cost savings over traditional photography.
