The folks at
are offering two courses that will be held at Apple Canada’s headquarters.
The first is a two-day, production-based course on QuickTime Streaming. The course will be held at Apple Canada Inc. head office (7495 Birchmount Road, Markham, Ontario) on Feb. 17 and 18 and will be taught by QT Streaming expert Francesco Schiavon.
This hands-on course provides a focus on teaching content creators to better deliver their projects through streaming video, according to ici Media President David Gratton. Through this course, students will learn to set up and deploy a live stream to multiple users over a LAN or the Internet, and integrate their streaming content with Web pages and other desktop applications. This course has been developed specifically for the content creator that wants to deliver quality streaming content, Gratton said.
“This course is for anyone that wants to understand how to deploy streaming content, including network administrators, educators or managers that need to disseminate information internally and to an Internet audience,” Gratton said in announcing the course. “It would also be productive for technically inclined web designers, video producers, and entrepreneurs, who want a jump start into delivering rich media content through streaming and for those with experience in streaming with RealNetworks and/or Windows Media who want to learn to deploy richer content with QuickTime.”
Each student will have access to a high-end Mac for the two-day workshop. Schiavon is the lead instructor for the course and will be assisted by Gratton. The seminar is limited to 12 participants. It will run from 9 am to 5 pm both days at a cost of $695 (CAD). For a

ici Media Inc is now offering a two-day, production-based course on LiveStage Pro, which will also be held at Apple Canada Inc.’s head office. Gratton will be the instructor, assisted by video on the Internet specialist, Guillaume Iacino
In this hands-on workshop, students will learn how to create and deploy wired movies for the Web or CD-ROM using LiveStage Pro. Students experience the production aspects and customer benefits of LSP by actually producing wired movies during this two-day fee-based course, Gratton said. Working with LSP, this workshop will teach beginner to intermediate students to create interactive content within a QuickTime authoring environment, he added. It will also include training in video editing, compositing, compression and streaming.
“This course is also designed for students who would like a jump-start into delivering rich media content, including those experienced with RealNetworks and/or Windows Media who want to learn how to deploy richer content with QuickTime in the LSP Environment,” Gratton said. “This course is intended for those at the beginner and intermediate levels. This workshop focuses on teaching the student how to deliver wired media, and is not designed to be a highly advanced technical course.”
Again, each student gets access to a high-end Mac and the seminar is limited to 12 participants. The cost is $895 (CAD), and the number to call is (604) 709-9226.
