Sorenson Services USA, a provider of streaming media encoding, consulting and training, and
Future Media Concepts, a digital media training center, have launched a new training program: the
Ultimate Streaming Seminar. It offers two days of training covering MPEG, QuickTime, Real Media and Windows Media solutions for both video on demand and live streaming.
“We wanted to create an event where digital media professionals could get advanced training on all the major streaming media formats all in one place,” said Dale Sorenson, president of Sorenson Services USA in a statement. “We’ve taken all our experience working as Apple Solution Expert Consultants, Real Partners and Windows Media Services Providers and combined it to offer objective advice and solutions from an independent perspective.”
The seminar features solutions from Apple, Media100, Microsoft, Real Networks and Sorenson Media including Cleaner 5, Cleaner Live, Sorenson Broadcaster (which enables users to stream video and audio using QuickTime) and Live Channel. Also featured are services from streaming hosting partners
BopJet. Attendees will learn advanced encoding techniques for achieving high-quality results and examine the pros and cons of different delivery strategies. Side-by-side comparisons and hard data will show how the formats compare, Sorenson said.
“In this new economy, streaming media is the key to pumping up web traffic and sales,” he added. “The Ultimate Streaming Seminar is designed to help companies with the tools and knowledge they need to develop and implement effective streaming media strategies.”
The Ultimate Streaming Seminar will also let participants learn how to use the most advanced streaming media technologies of the present and future. You’ll purportedly get an object perspective from an independent source of all the major Web video architectures and hard data on how they compare. Attendees are promised a “road map of the future of streaming, including the newest technologies from Apple, Microsoft, Media100, Real Media and Sorenson Media,” as well as a “jump on MPEG-4.”
