Adobe Customer Success 2014: U.S. Navy & Creative Cloud

NUWC_4K_655

Today at Adobe Systems Federal, we are proud to unveil a brand new Customer Success Video focusing on agencies of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC), part of U.S. Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), and their creation of a high-end professional collaborative media production pipeline.  NAVSEA engineers, builds, buys and maintains ships, submarines and combat systems for the U.S. Navy, and employs over 60,000 civilian, military and contract support personnel. NUWC is a Navy shore command for submarine warfare systems and other systems associated with the undersea battlespace.

David Bellino, a Digital Media Producer, provides the vision and roadmap on digital media and emerging technologies for a variety of Navy and government organizations including NAVSEA, Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group (CNO SSG), OPNAV N45 (CNO Energy and Environmental Readiness Division), U.S. Fleet Forces/NAVFAC, ONR (Office of Naval Research), NRL (Naval Research Lab) and others. Along with the 40+ films and multimedia projects he has directed and produced at NUWC, he has also developed a state-of-the-art Media Lab including a 4K Display Center, as well a Virtual Studio for real-time collaborative media production.

Adobe’s Creative Cloud tools play an integral part in David’s media production pipeline, in which he collaborates with Virtual Studio nodes across the world, involving designers, web developers, video editors and post-production personnel from Government and contractor agencies.  This cutting edge workflow and pipeline has resulted in significant cost savings in the area of digital media, along with providing improved efficiencies and increased collaboration.

One example project that emerged from this highly innovative and collaborative process is a web and mobile application that delivers videos and documentation on the Navy Acoustic Effects Model (NAEMO), which is a modeling and simulation tool used by the U.S. Navy to simulate the propagation of underwater sound resulting from Navy at-sea training and testing activities and the potential effects on marine species.

In our Success Story, David and his extended team discuss some common challenges and obstacles Government agencies face when trying to procure, deploy and stay current with the latest innovations emerging from the technology sector.  They also discuss the digital asset management needs of modern creative teams, and the many benefits of standardizing on a set of core creative and collaborative technologies.
