Bruce Shorts blast off for the third time!
After a long wait, our educational video series Bruce’s Shorts is back and better than ever. Most exciting, the new season is now part of the recently launched Dalet Academy, Dalet’s brand new, free educational platform for all broadcast and media professionals.
This season, we have a host of new topics for you, and I would like to personally thank the entire team that helped to make this possible. You’ll notice that my new shorts are now orange, not green. This reflects the corporate colours of Dalet, and I am pleased that education for our customers, partners and even competitors remains a core value within the company that acquired AmberFin back in April 2014. It’s a very exciting time with the launch of the Dalet Academy as well as the release of Bruce’s Shorts, Season 1 on our YouTube channel.
We’re kicking off Season 3 of Bruce’s Shorts by taking a look at Ultra High Definition TV (UHDTV) and what the many different acronyms are all about. Later episodes look at the different flavours of UHDTV and ask whether we need more pixels, better pixels, more frames or all of the above. I will even put on my brand new lab coat and take you into the Bruce’s Shorts Lab to do a bit of colour science.
Later in the season, we will explore the sometimes-confusing world of Business Process Management (BPM), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web Services, with future episodes adding some background to the world of metadata and looking at why the business of versioning is becoming more and more important in today’s media companies.
It’s been great fun making these Shorts, and we hope that you will find them as entertaining as they are informative. Remember, the only way to see Bruce’s Shorts videos is to subscribe, and they will appear in your inbox every week. Each episode is 2-3 minutes long, and the whole series is absolutely free. What’s not to like?
Don’t forget that you have to either subscribe individually to Bruce’s Shorts or globally to the Academy as a whole in order to receive invitations to our free Webinar series, which will take a deeper dive into the main issues facing our industry today. I’m preparing the first in the series right now – “UHDTV is for the future, what is it and why should I worry now?” – where I will explain in depth the technologies behind UHDTV and why you might want to think now about how you’ll tackle UHDTV challenges that will inevitably come at you towards the end of 2015.
I hope you’ll join me on this exciting educational journey and, of course, if you have any feedback or suggestions for new topics, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ciao for now!
