Finding Ben at NAB

I've had folks ask me where I'll be at NAB. Here's a list of my current schedule. I'll also be around at the Microsoft and Sonic Solutions booths as well - I'll post those schedules Sunday night when I get them.

I'm doing three conference sessions:


Audio and Video Compression In-Depth
Friday 4-7pm

Whether for HD, DVD, on-line stream or podcast, you need to be on the forefront of compression technology. But with all the different standards, formats, platforms, codecs and tools that are readily available, choosing and customizing the ones best for your projects can be downright overwhelming. This session will act as a guide through the myriad of options facing you and help you to determine what will best meet your need. We will also talk about best practices for capturing and preprocessing audio and video.

Audience: This class assumes some basic background in compression.


DVD Authoring: The Next Generation --- Encoding for Next Generation Discs - MPEG2, AVC, VC-1

Saturday 11:45-1:00pm at Post-Production World

Not one, not two but THREE different codecs are available to use in Next Gen DVD formats! This session will provide a summary and overview of MPEG-2, AVC and VC-1, and a chance to identify encoding tools and workflows available to next Gen compressionists!

Audience: All users wishing to get a better understanding of the Next Generation video formats and encoding options.

In-Depth: Dig Deep into Powerful Technology --- In–Depth: Professional Video and Audio Compression

Tuesday 10am-1pm at Post-Production World

Whether for HD, DVD, on-line stream or podcast, you need to be on the forefront of compression technology. But with all the different standards, formats, platforms, codecs and tools that are readily available, choosing and customizing the ones best for your projects can be downright overwhelming. This session will act as a guide through the myriad of options facing you and help you to determine what will best meet your need. We will also talk about best practices for capturing and preprocessing audio and video.

Audience: This class assumes some basic background in compression.

This will be largely a repeat of my Friday class, except I can talk about what gets announced on Monday Smiley.


Content Creators & IP Delivery: Content Creators Discuss the Challenges of Delivering Digital Content over IP Platforms

Kulabyte Booth (SL 13713) 11am Monday.

I'll also be participating in this panel at the Kulabyte booth. This one won't require a conference pass, of course.
