Groundbreaking Workshop in Multi-Camera Live Streaming Technology Enables Media Professionals to Produce Live Web Productions.
Renowned director, editor and author Mitch Jacobson presents a six city, two day cutting edge workshop in multi-camera live streaming technology. 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.
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 the Creative Cow” which will be simulcast on media partner USTREAM.
“Working with live 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, says multicamera veteran, author and MulticamP.tv workshop creator Mitch Jacobson. 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.

It is presented by AJA Video Systems with additional support provided by media partners WEVA, 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.
