Streaming Media Primer, A Free Resource From DMA………

By Jan Ozer

Download a free primer on streaming media from DMA instructor Jan Ozer. The primer starts by defining commonly used streaming terms like bandwidth, streaming and data rate, and then explains universal encoding parameters like VBR and I, B and P-frames. Then it introduces readers to the big three codecs, H.264, VP6 and VC-1, and briefly compares and contrasts Flash and Silverlight. The primer finishes with a section on how to choose common encoding parameters like data rate and resolution.

This summer, Ozer will teach two courses for Digital Media Academy, Producing Video for the Web (3 days) and Web Video Compression & Delivery (2 days). The courses will be offered twice; once at Stanford (7/20-24) and once at Harvard (7/27-31). Check http://www.digitalmediaacademy.org/courses/all-courses.html#videopro for more details.
