W1. Advanced Codec Implementation & Production

09:00 AM2022-05-232022-05-23

Monday, May 23: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Over the last 5 years, we’ve transitioned from one codec, H.264, to seven or more (H.264, HEVC, VP9, AV1, VVC, EVC, and LCEVC). Keeping track of the performance, implementation status, and royalty status of these technologies has become exceptionally time-consuming, yet is mission-critical for all encoding professionals. This 3-hour workshop details the implementation status of AV1, VVC, LCEVC, and EVC, discusses competitive quality/performance, and shows how to encode with available encoders. Attendees leave knowing the implementation status of these codecs and production alternatives for encode/decode.

W2. Integrating High-Quality Inputs/Outputs With Conferencing Platforms

09:00 AM2022-05-232022-05-23

Monday, May 23: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

In order to achieve higher-quality video and audio than what consumer webcams and mics offer, live-event video production during the pandemic has rapidly accelerated the use of AV capture hardware and versatile outputs like NDI, SRT, and RTMP from popular conferencing tools such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams. While these products enable meeting organizers to directly push RTMP feeds from the cloud to social media destinations and custom ingest servers, the lack of customized layouts in these feeds creates new opportunities for webcasters to produce better-looking, fully branded live streams for their clients. Nearly every trade software product for video switching supports NDI, including OBS, Telestream Wirecast, vMix, and more. In this workshop, learn how you enhance the production values of your next virtual or hybrid event with high-quality sources derived from Zoom and Microsoft Teams. Learn about the differences between Zoom (Zoom Meetings, Webinar, and Rooms) and Microsoft Teams (Presenter Mode, PowerPoint Live, and Live Events) and how those modes affect your production process.

W3. Affordable Gear & Workflows for REMI Production

01:00 PM2022-05-232022-05-23

Monday, May 23: 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The pandemic has forced us all to become video production experts and knowledgeable in the technologies available for high-quality broadcasts involving multiple remote speakers in different geographic locations. Here’s the training you wish you had before the pandemic started. This workshop covers low-cost alternatives for producing videos with multiple participants in different locations, including mixing on-premise and in the cloud. This 3-hour workshop also covers available workflows, production alternatives (webcam, consumer cam, DSLR, Bluetooth, USB mic, XLR mic), and best practices. Attendees leave knowing how to remotely produce a live event as well as the pros and cons of the various production alternatives.

W4. FFmpeg 5.0 Advanced: Working With Multiple Sources, Inputs, & Outputs

01:00 PM2022-05-232022-05-23

Monday, May 23: 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

At the start of this year, FFmpeg 5.0 (codenamed "Lorentz") was released, a major upgrade from previous versions. This workshop guides you through the changes that might affect your current FFmpeg processes and workflow, as well as introduces you to more challenging FFmpeg features. If you’re already familiar with the basics of FFmpeg operation, you’re ready to tackle more ambitious tasks with one of the most powerful compositing tools available. We explore composition of two video sources with text labels and placement, setting up multiple processes to output multiple bitrates for adaptive delivery, using the “tee muxer” to distribute one encoding process to several outputs, and accessing connected hardware (e.g., webcams, AV capture devices) and networked hardware (e.g., IP cameras) as inputs to FFmpeg processes. Note: A diagnostic test is available for attendees to determine whether they’re prepared for this advanced workshop.
