Led by Wayne Desmond, Sony’s national training manager for professional media, the seminars will focus on two topics: “Sony HD Media in Perspective” and “How to Protect Your Digital Assets.”

Seminar one provides an overview of the professional HD formats and media currently used in broadcast production and digital cinematography, including HDV, XDCAM HD, HDCAM, and HDCAM SR, as well as DVCPRO HD and D-5. The seminar will also cover continuing advancements in microprocessors, which have resulted in compression that’s virtually impossible to discern when compared to an uncompressed source.

Seminar two complements the first by providing an overview of the similarities and differences between film and magnetic media. Desmond will present guidelines on the care and handling of media, and will share data that’s based Sony’s sale of more than 230 million half-inch cassettes.
