(New York, New York--October 11, 2012) Renowned director, editor and author Mitch Jacobson presents Multicamp.TV a six city, two day cutting edge workshop in multi-camera live streaming technology. There are four cities left in the tour.
The workshop is based on his successful textbook, Mastering Multicamera Techniques: From Pre Production to Editing and Deliverables (Focal Press) and introduces techniques in next generation multi-camera streaming technology with integrated social media functionality. More about Mitch here.
Each workshop features: Pre-Production Secrets • Camera Synchronization • Timecode & Genlocking • Formats, Bit Rates & Codecs • Live Directing & Switching • Livestream Encoding & Hosting • Social Media Integration • Skype Video Calls & Multicamera Editing. The course culminates with a live stream project where students will demonstrate their new skill set in a live one-hour program entitled: “Cutting it Close - Live! from The Barn on Creative COW” which will be simulcast on media partner USTREAM.
"People have been working with multiple cameras for hundreds of years but on almost every show I edit, there are multitudes of sync problems that cause countless hours of wasted time in post," says multicamera veteran, author and MulticamP.tv workshop creator Mitch Jacobson. "Working with sports, music and variety programs for U2, McCartney, the NFL and America's Got Talent has taught me how to use the simplest tricks to solve the biggest problems. MulticamP.tv attendees will be able to take advantage of that experience to learn how to avoid pitfalls and ensure success for live production, webcasting, and post. I'm on a mission and my goal is to forever eradicate poorly executed multicamera techniques from the face of the earth."
“I've worked with Mitch for a long time and not only is he a master of Multicam but he is dedicated pro and a generous teacher. His classes are deeply precise with logical presentation but maybe more importantly, he is an all around great guy to work with. At MulticamP.tv, you'll walk away with a lifetime of knowledge and have a great time”, said Gary Adcock, digital artist and technologist that specializes in Customized Workflow Solutions for Episodic and Feature Film production.
The six city tour kicks off on October 6th in Washington, DC and includes stops in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC, and Orlando. It is presented by AJA Video Systems with additional support provided by media partners USTREAM, Adobe, Telestream, Creative COW, NewTek, Panasonic and Teradek. The workshops are hosted by AbleCine, DC- Camera, Rule Camera, Magdalin Creative Media and Magdalin Studios.
Jacobson is a veteran of the entertainment, music, and event business with over 30 years of experience in broadcast television, live streaming and entertainment production. He is the owner of Category-5 Studios in New York City and is a member of The Motion Picture Editor's Guild (Hollywood/NY).
