AmberFin Announces Free Educational Program

Broadcast Industry Leader, Bruce Devlin Addresses Hot Technology Trends and Issues With Bruce’s Shorts Video and Webinar series

At IBC 2011 (stand 7.J15) AmberFin, a leading developer of file-based media ingest and transcoding solutions for content owners, broadcasters, sports organizations and post-production houses, will announce the launch of a free, non-vendor specific, educational program that is delivered to your email in-box, targeted at professionals working in the broadcast and electronic media industries.

Called Bruce's Shorts, the program consists of series of weekly video shorts and monthly in-depth webinars covering a broad range of industry topics including: "how to avoid the common mistakes when migrating from tape-based to file-based workflows" to "the secrets of metadata" and "which is the best HD format for your facility".

The program has been developed and will be led by Bruce Devlin, AmberFin's Chief Technology Officer and co-author of the MXF specification. Devlin brings 25 years of experience working at the leading edge of the broadcast industry, working on standards committees, designing products and developing software algorithms that help organizations create content effectively and efficiently.


“Today’s broadcast and electronic media industries face unprecedented levels of uncertainty and technology confusion. As a company whose mission is to help organizations solve their file-based workflow problems, we feel it is our responsibility to help our customers navigate these challenges equipped not only with the right technology, but also armed with the most up to date knowledge," comments Bruce Devlin, AmberFin's CTO.

Unlike many other vendors and publishers that request payment for access to training and information services, AmberFin is providing this expert tutorial series free of charge to all industry executives that register with the company.

“Bruce’s Shorts is a unique proposition within today’s broadcast industry, both in terms of the depth of technical expertise that Bruce brings to these tutorials and also that AmberFin is offering this knowledge sharing initiative free of charge to industry executives,” commented Jeremy Deaner, chief executive officer at AmberFin. “We need dialogue with our customers. In today’s unpredictable media environment we need a combined view, sharing our vision of where our industry is going and helping people prepare for what might be needed.”
