Hey Everyone,

I am looking to gauge input on the level of interest people might have in attending a multi-day intensive HD-DVD authoring workshop.

We are starting to plan the next big META (http://www.mediaexperience.org) event that will take place in February and in conjunction with that I was considering teaching likely a 3 day class on HD-DVD authoring. It would be a hands on (meaning attendees in front of a computer, writing code) comprehensive workshop covering all aspects of making a real fully functioning disc, including the regular menu and video/audio/subs stuff as well as network connections, persistent storage, and gaming.

Before I take on the business aspects of booking a venue for such an event, I was trying to gauge how much interest there is for it. There would have to be a fee involved, likely high 3 figures, as renting a venue with suitable computers for everyone unfortunately costs money.

Does anybody have any comments or interest

regards,
_scott

Hi Scott,
a lot of interest here. Two or three people from Voila DVD art (Barcelona/spain) may come to a workshop on HD DVD Authoring, including me, of course ;-).

I forgot to mention location... should there be enough interest to make this happen, it would occur in the Los Angeles area on February 6th, 7th, and 8th.

Well, Together with THX, BPL, and Microsoft we will be begining the VC-1 Certification program in Oct. It will be a 3 day comprehensive course covering everything from iyuv creation to QC methods. It looks as if it will be less than 1,000$ which is a bargain (~330.00$ per day). I would like to cover paralel encoder hardware setup as well, but that may be another course.
