Just the other day, Widen hosted a webinar on video asset management. We were glad to see so many customers and others in the meeting with us, hungry for information that would help them make better use of their video assets and their DAM system.
Al Falaschi, our in-house video expert, led us through a crash course that included topics like codecs, metadata, embed codes, file conversions and HTML5. We based the topics included in the webinar on responses to a survey, in which we asked respondents what they were most inrerested in learning about. Here is a chart showing the results. As you can see, there was a pretty even distribution.
We got great feedback on the webinar, and people seemed to really appreciate getting Al's perspective on some of the hot topic in video management. In case you're not familiar with Al, here's the bio we shared during the event:
Al Falaschi has been with Widen since October 2006, but his roots in dealing with digital audio and video date back to the late 1990’s. He has built numerous audio recording and video editing facilities and continues to be an independent music producer/engineer and video editor. Understanding the technological blueprint of digital audio and video, he has helped form Widen’s expansion of the Media Collective to include additional audio/video capabilities, and helps plan future growth in these areas. Understanding industry standards and custom workflows allows Al to guide Widen’s products and maintain their status as one of the leading providers of DAM systems and services.
Immediately after the webinar was over, we started getting questions about whether and when a recording of the webinar would be available. The whole thing takes about an hour, and we know that, for many of you out there, this would be an hour well spent.
