TAPR Conference Videos Online

From the ARRL Letter, 1/12/12:

Amateur Radio Video News (ARVN) has released high-definition videos of all the talks presented at the 2011 ARRL/TAPR Digital Communications Conference (DCC), held September 16-18. The programs are now available online on the ARVN website.

The DCC is a three-day conference on Amateur Radio digital technology. Among the video presentations are 18 seminars, the Saturday Banquet and the welcome introduction by TAPR Chairman Steve Bible, N7HPR. According to ARVN Producer Gary Pearce, KN4AQ, most of the talks are fairly technical, although there are four separate sessions that cover “Intro to” topics. “All of the talks — except the ‘Intro to’ talks — were shot in three-camera high-definition, with wireless mics for ‘close-up’ audio of the presenter, as well as the question-and-answer period,” he explained. “The ‘Intro to’ talks were shot with a single, standard-definition camera.

This year, Pearce decided to release the programs on the web instead of the DVDs that have been produced in previous years (although the DVDs will be available later). “I wanted to make the programs available more quickly and easily to a worldwide audience,” he said. “The web has become an easy, high-quality distribution medium.”
