The Audio-Video Media Production team of DK India under the guidance of Nain Rawat (AV Media Manager) had the opportunity to showcase their skills, mainly in the domain of audio and videos in an event titled Team in Focus: Audio Visual Media Production (Digital Operations) organized recently by the DK Manager's Inter-departmental Communication (IDC) focus group.
The enthusiastic team members comprising Rohit Rojal, Vineet Dubey, Vishal Gupta, Roshan Singh, Gaurav Chaudhary, Mahipal Singh, Pramod Pant, Alok Singh, Manish Bhatt and Sachin Tanwar put up a great event showcasing important and interesting information using interactive and collaborating activities, props and quizzes.
There was a lot to discover among the vast range of videos made for DK Book's YouTube channel, DK India, DK FindOut! and Rough Guides. The team enlightened colleagues from all departments on various capacities of their work such as 2D and 3D workflows, production processes, specialized deliverables and future prospects of digital publishing. There was also a special discussion on DK YouTube that gave the audience a vivid insight into facts and efforts gone into making those videos.
Another interesting exhibit – aptly named 2D Vs. 3D – showcased subtle but critical differences between 2D and 3D graphics and animation, very suitably explained on two separate LED screens.
The Show and Tell event reiterated the point that the production of videos for various purposes such as entertainment, learning and development, marketing and promotion of books, or raising sales pitches, provides an user-friendly and attractive medium for showcasing DK's content and holds much promise in the future of publishing. It also helps in getting customer traction both into online bookstores and the offline, brick-and-mortar ones.
Here's a peek into the highlights of the event.
