Video Compression for Flash, Apple Devices and HTML5

At StreamingMedia East in New York City, the StreamingLearningCenter announced the immediate availability of Video Compression for Flash, Apple Devices and HTML5. Written by streaming producer and compression expert Jan Ozer, the book costs $29.99 and is available now at Amazon.com and other online bookstores.

The production and distribution of streaming media has been complicated by new playback devices like smartphones, new codecs like WebM, emerging standards like HTML5, and new technologies like adaptive streaming. Video Compression for Flash, Apple Devices and HTML5 provides clear, research-based guidance to help streaming producers decide when to use these new technologies and how to do so most efficiently.

“Jan has a unique ability to understand new technologies and then present that knowledge simply and logically,” said Streaming Media Magazine editor Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen. “This is reflected in his articles and screencams in Streaming Media Magazine, and workshops at StreamingMedia conferences around the world, which are always among the highest-rated and best attended.

“Like all of our writers, Jan doesn’t just test new products in his studio, he uses them to produce real world projects, like the HoustonFest concert he streamed live last weekend,” added Stephen Nathans-Kelly, editor of EventDV Magazine. “He’s been our go-to guy on compression-related topics since the DVD days.”
