I tried to send this to RMorgan but the mail bounced. Here is the basic
info again. If anyone wants the details of the papers being presented
please e-mail me directly.
On 9 Nov. 1992 there will be two Pre-Conference Workshops at the 134th
Technical Conference and Equipment Exhibition in Toronto.
Each Workshop runs a full (very full) day.
1) Multimedia World
This workshop will provide both theoretical and hands-on coverage of
multimedia tools and applications; discussion will be devoted to display,
processing, control, and communications. Information on computer
platforms -- PCs, Macs, and workstations -- will be presented and
forecasts of the technology's future will be offered.
The tutorial will include an over view of the many multimedia standards
which exist and are under development, including SMPTE, ISO, and CCITT
standards. In addition, the session will address the topics of
multimedia production, covering the process of creating electronic
multimedia productions and demonstrating techniques of bringing together
sound, full-motion video, stills, graphics and text; teletraining and
distance education, focusing on interactive, easily accessible
educational materials; productivity and groupware, highlighting work
group and networking arrangements; and multimedia applications, covering
the process of communicating and conveying information interactively.
2) The Post Experience
This workshop will give attendees an overview of current vido editing
disciplines, including the integration of computer graphic images with
video. During the day, speakers will place emphasis on the electronic
post-production process, including film transfer, the screening of
dailies, off-line editing, on-line editing, colour correction, and
special effects. Sound editing, sound effects, Foley, and automatic
dialogue replacement and mixing will also be covered in full detail. As
part of the tutorial, registrants will help assemble a one-minute
segment of a television show transfered from film to videotape through
to editing and final international versioning.
A prize will be awarded to the attendee who wears the most logos from
the television and motion-picture industries. Dress casually.
This workshop was run earlier this year and the attendees found it was
an outstanding event.
