Mitch Jacobson To Present Workshops in Multi-Camera Live Streaming Technology

Director, editor, and author Mitch Jacobson presents a seven city, two day workshop in multi-camera live streaming technology.  The workshop is based on his successful textbook, Mastering Multicamera Techniques: From Pre Production to Editing and Deliverables (Focal Press) and introduces techniques in next generation multi-camera streaming technology with integrated social media functionality.

Each workshop features: Pre-Production Secrets; Camera Synchronization; Timecode & Genlocking; Formats, Bit Rates & Codecs; Live Directing & Switching; Livestream Encoding & Hosting; Social Media Integration; and Skype Video Calls & Multicamera Editing. The course culminates with a live stream project where students will demonstrate their new skill set in a live one-hour program entitled: “Cutting it Close- Live! from The Barn on the Creative Cow” which will be simulcast on media partner USTREAM.

“Working with live sports, music, and variety programs for  U2, Paul McCartney, the NFL, and America’s Got Talent has taught me how to use the simplest tricks to solve the biggest problems,” says multicamera veteran, author and workshop creator Mitch Jacobson. “ attendees will be able to take advantage of that experience to learn how to avoid pitfalls and ensure success for live production, webcasting, and post.”

“I’ve worked with Mitch for a long time and not only is he a master of Multicam but he is dedicated pro and a generous teacher. His classes are deeply precise with logical presentation but maybe more importantly, he is an all around great guy to work with. At, you’ll walk away with a lifetime of knowledge and have a great time,” said Gary Adcock,  digital artist and technologist that specializes in Customized  Workflow Solutions for Episodic and Feature Film production.

The six city tour kicks off on October 6 in Washington, DC, and includes stops in New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, DC, and Orlando.  It is presented by AJA Video Systems with additional support provided by media partners WEVA, USTREAM, Adobe, Telestream, Creative Cow, NewTek, Panasonic and Teradek. The workshops are hosted by AbleCine, DC- Camera, Rule Camera, Magdalin Creative Media, and Magdalin Studios.

Jacobson is a veteran of the entertainment, music, and event business with over 30 years of experience in broadcast television, live streaming and entertainment production. He is the owner of Category-5 Studios in New York City and is a member of The Motion Picture Editor’s Guild (Hollywood/NY).  His book, Mastering Multicamera Techniques, has been adopted by two college graduate programs and was published in four languages.
