Sony offers online seminars on handling HD media

The Professional Media Group of Sony Electronics has developed a series of online seminars to help production professionals learn more about HD tape and discs, and how best to care for and handle the media for optimum archival life.

The free sessions are targeted toward cinematographers, directors, directors of photography, editors and other content creators working in TV and motion picture production.

The seminars are led by Wayne Desmond, Sony’s national training manager for professional media, and focus on two important topics: “Sony HD Media in Perspective” and “How to Protect Your Digital Assets.” Desmond will present guidelines on care and handling, and share data based on the more than 230 million Sony half-inch videotape cassettes sold to date.

The first seminar includes an overview of the professional HD formats and media currently used in broadcast production and digital cinematography, including Sony’s HDV, XDCAM HD, HDCAM and HDCAM SR, as well as DVCPRO HD and D-5 formats. The seminar will also cover advancements in microprocessors, which have resulted in compression virtually impossible to discern when compared to an uncompressed source, according to the company.

The second seminar complements the first seminar by providing a comparison of the similarities and differences between film and magnetic media.
