The world of codecs can be a very confusing place. It is not a big surprise that one might find it challenging to understand them all. Codec options include JPEG, MPEG and variants of MPEG, like H.26x, AVCHD and HDCAM SR. And let’s not forget VC-2 and VC-3! So, how do they compare? How are they different from JPEG and MPEG? This month’s SMPTE PDA Now speaker, Mr. Walt Husak, Dolby Laboratories’ Director Image Technologies will help make sense of the world of codecs by answering these and many other questions. Please don’t miss this exciting educational opportunity. Register today!
