Folks, This is going out a little late due to us all having been buried in snow, but I'm doing a presentation at our local SMPTE chapter meeting tomorrow night. It's free to members and non-members alike. Here's the details from the press release: Pacific / Northwest Section Alberta / British Columbia / Alaska / Washington / Idaho / Oregon Thursday, 15 January, 2004 Meeting / Program 7:00PM Location: KGW TV 1501 SW Jefferson St Portland , OR (503) 526-7915 Stephen email@hidden Program: Video Compression Roundup Moore9s Law promises vast amounts of bandwidth and storage at low cost. But no matter how plentiful and cheap, we always seem to have more material to move or store. The answer is compression. Disk-based video servers have used compression from the beginning. Now tape, disc, and flash memory devices derive the same benefits from compressed media, and Internet distribution couldn9t exist without it. Even digital broadcast uses compression to deliver a quality picture to the home over a small slice of the spectrum. But what is the state of the compression art today? What9s available, what9s coming, and what are the pros and cons of each scheme? Ben Waggoner will take us through the sometimes murky world of compression, and present a high-level overview of what the technology has to offer today and tomorrow. While avoiding explanations such as the mathematics behind Discrete Cosine Transforms, Ben will explain the strengths and weaknesses of several compression techniques, and will discuss the future of the industry as he sees it. Ben compressed his first file in 1989, and has been working full-time in compression since 1994 and a compressionist, consultant, and encoder. He9s the author of 3Compression for Great Digital Video2 from CMP Books. No-host dinner: Leaky Roof Tavern, 1538 SW Jefferson; Portland, OR, starting at 5:00 PM.
