Author and Presenter,
The SF Guide to Digital Video Compression is an information packed, quality video production which offers an in depth, on location tour of one of the 20th century’s most exciting and revolutionary technological developments.
Drawing on over 30 years of experience in the satellite telecommunication industry, author, technical trainer and consultant, Mark Long, takes us on a journey through the brave new world that was born from the marriage of tiny Ku-band satellite dishes and digital video compression. He takes the viewer on a down-to-earth tour of what video compression does and how it works.
Using simple language and analogies, along with detailed animated graphics, Mr. Long makes video compression easy to understand. Featuring interviews with satellite and compression industry leaders, this technical short course, The SF Guide to Digital Video Compression, covers MPEG 1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and Digital Video Broadcasting.
Watch 11 minutes of clips taken from the DVD. Press Play.
This information packed DVD also demonstrates a wide array of compression applications, including:
educational satellite delivery, desktop and corporate video-conferencing, twisted pair telephone delivery, direct to home satellite delivery, personal computer & CD ROM, laboratory demos of MPEG 2 digital video at various data compression rates.
This program offers a virtual short course on the technical concepts used in compression and was designed to be part of a complete course of instruction on the technical aspects of satellite communications. It should be used with our Satellite Installations and Satellite Technology Overview DVDs to touch upon all aspects of the technology. Our Satellite Learning Package is great for Vocational/Technical schools and ideal for training entry level industry technicians and installers! It is also an excellent tutorial for emergency management and disaster recovery personnel unfamiliar with satellite technology.
