“Live from Westlake Village” – The Renaissance of Larry Jordan

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2015

Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc. (LJA) is a multi-faceted company led by the highly-regarded producer, director, and editor Larry Jordan. LJA provides high-quality, engaging training and information covering video production and post-production for practicing professionals and students through a variety of media worldwide.

While LJA has been in business providing training for almost 12 years, 2015 may prove to be a banner year for LJA. Their growth has been exponential over the past few months, expanding their capabilities with the opening of a new video and audio recording studio in Westlake Village, CA – Digital Production BuZZ Studios – which provides a new home for Digital Production BuZZ. LJA has also launched a redesigned website – LarryJordan.com – to provide enhanced training for video post-production professionals and students, with an emphasis on Apple and Adobe software.

DIGITAL PRODUCTION BUZZ STUDIOS
Some 20 years ago, DTS had constructed an audio studio as they developed a new way to deliver surround sound to movie theaters. This acoustically-treated studio was designed to maximize audio quality. LJA has spent the past four months updating that same space, adding video and lighting capabilities to the mix. The new studio – dubbed the Digital Production BuZZ Studio – is ideal for live webcasts, news and information programs, interviews, training, and other smaller video or audio projects.

The goal and key benefit of LJA’s entire system is live webcasting. From their new studio, they can stream live audio and, at the same time, live 1080p video anywhere in the world. This gives LJA the technical ability to respond to industry news almost immediately.

The studio has a list of features to be envied: four new Blackmagic Design Studio cameras with Manfrodo tripods and heads, two of which have teleprompters, Marshall Electronics Lipstick POV camera; an all-new lighting grid a 24-channel Leprecon lighting control system driving an ETC dimmer pack with lights from Hexolux, Source4, Mole-Richardson and Arri; a Behringer digital snake that supports thirty-two audio inputs and sixteen audio outputs, fed by a variety of mics including Electro-Voice RE-20s for voice work; and a 15′ projection screen with built-in theater speakers.

The control room is another engineering feat, with a 32-channel Behringer X32 Producer audio mixer, five Blackmagic Design Hyperdeck shuttles (digital recorders), a Blackmagic Design Teranex format converter, NewTek TalkShow Skype system, and a rack full of support gear. A 20-channel Blackmagic Design ATEM switcher handles all of LJA’s video sources: five cameras, two computers, a Skype feed, all feeding into a Telestream Wirecast system for graphics and streaming.

The lion’s share of the control room installation was performed by Advantage Video Systems (AVS). Jeffrey Stansfield, President of AVS and a 20-year veteran of the computer IT and motion picture industry, states: “The whole team at Advantage Video Systems had a great time helping Larry and his team make their vision a reality.”

DIGITAL PRODUCTION BUZZ
The Digital Production BuZZ podcast – both video and audio – covers filmmaking, video production, post- production, and distribution worldwide. From the people creating the gear, to the people using it to create cutting-edge film and video projects, “these are the interviews you need to hear and can’t find anywhere else,” says Jordan. “Each show presents interesting guests and industry leaders, media news from the US and the rest of the world. Media is world-wide and we work hard to present guests from across the globe. Far beyond the ‘what, when and where’, we explore the ‘why’ behind today’s top stories in media and content creation.”

Produced by industry veteran Cirina Catania, Digital Production BuZZ is the longest-running weekly audio podcast covering media in the world, and the 2nd longest continuously-running audio podcast ever. This is an extraordinary accomplishment in and of itself, but Digital Production BuZZ has now made the substantial leap into video. With LJA’s new studio, the BuZZ produces a weekly live podcast, creating both an audio show and video show simultaneously. Guests can appear live from the studio, or remotely via Skype utilizing NewTek’s TalkShow VS-100 system. The TalkShow box allows for live Skype video calls to be routed in the control room like any other video source. Digital Production BuZZ Studios is one of the first adopters of this remarkable new technology.

LARRYJORDAN.COM
The new LJA website offers a clean, modern design, easy-to-navigate functionality, and a content-rich site experience. In addition to a simplified and modern interface, the freshly-renovated site invites visitors to explore the full library containing thousands of Jordan’s training tutorials, as well as browse a brand-new online store featuring all of LJA’s wide range of training downloads, DVDs, webinars, accessories and more. The site’s Workshop & Events section spotlights the company’s various options for private/corporate training, including their brand-new on-line educational initiative, “Learn With Larry”, that allows students and educators around the world to invest in and customize the professional-caliber post production training skills that they’re looking for.

“As we continued adding new resources to our old website,” said Larry Jordan, President of Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc., “we realized that we needed to totally redesign the interface to make it easier for editors to find the answers they need. With over 1,000 technical articles, and more than 1,200 videos in our Video Training Library, there was so much information available that no one could sort through it fast or easily. My goal during this redesign was to provide faster access to exactly the answers you need, so editors can get back to work as quickly as possible.”

A RENAISSANCE IN MEDIA
“We have made a dramatic but essential investment in our all of our properties,” says Jordan. “By expanding our offices to include an in-house video and audio studio, broadening Digital Production BuZZ’s offering to include video podcasts, and revamping our web presence to make our training resources even more accessible, we have taken a huge step into our future. We are very excited by everything that’s happening and hope you’ll join us.”

Adobe Prelude CS6 Training Announced by Larry Jordan

Oak Park, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2012

Larry Jordan, known world-wide for his in-depth Apple Final Cut Pro training, is now the first to offer a complete training for the brand-new Adobe Prelude CS6 software – the ideal program for ingesting, reviewing, and selecting video footage.

The new release of Adobe Creative Suite 6 software features major innovations and powerful new releases of fourteen applications, including the new Adobe Prelude CS6.

“Adobe Prelude CS6 is designed for tapeless media,” said Larry Jordan. “Whether you are working alone, or as part of a group, Adobe Prelude speeds the process of media review, ingest, logging, and sending files to your editing system. And our latest training shows you how to make this new program fly!”

Adobe Prelude CS6 provides the muscle for a member of the production team to use it for logging and selecting specific clips, without requiring the use of dedicated editing software or tying up an expensive edit suite. Then, when done, instantly send the selected files to Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, or Apple Final Cut Pro 7.

“Larry Jordan has provided informative training for Adobe products, and it is great to see the addition of Adobe Prelude to his mix of dedicated training courses for production professionals,” said Bill Roberts, director of professional video and audio product management, Adobe Systems Incorporated. “With the latest version of Adobe CS6 and the inclusion of Adobe Prelude, professionals will be able to take full advantage of the new features faster and utilize all that Adobe Prelude CS6 has to offer like never before.”

Users can ingest almost any file-based format and begin logging immediately, creating searchable markers and other temporal metadata that flow through post-production, then share the results with the rest of the editing team. Adobe Prelude is included in Adobe’s Production Premium, Master Collection and Creative Cloud.

Larry Jordan Announces Closed Captioning Added to Final Cut Pro X Training

Oak Park, California (PRWEB) May 14, 2012

Two titles in Larry Jordan’s Final Cut Pro X training are now closed captioned, Larry Jordan, internationally renowned Apple trainer, announced today. He took the unusual step of making his NLE training closed captioned after a seminar he taught at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., the world leader in liberal education and career development for deaf and hard of hearing students.

“Both hearing and non-hearing students attended my Final Cut Pro X seminar at Gallaudet last autumn so we arranged to have sign language interpreters,” said Larry Jordan. “Those interpreters were provided by Mandy David’s wonderful, Florida based company, JFD Communications, LLC. From her I learned that closed captioning would improve accessibility not only to the deaf and hard-of-hearing, but to individuals who do not speak English as a first language. So, I asked Mandy to take on the challenge of closed captioning my training.”

The challenge was significant, more than 90 individual video files, containing more than 11 hours of in-depth, technical training which required detailed transcription and careful placement of closed captions so that the text would not block key features of the software.

“Taking on a captioning project this large takes commitment,” said Mandy David, President of JFD Communications. “I’m proud of my captioning team for the attention to detail on this challenging project. We are delighted to see Larry Jordan add Closed Captions to his training series. It is exciting to think about all the people who will now have access to learn Final Cut Pro X from such an innovative trainer.”

“Closed captioning Larry’s Final Cut training took five months, and more than 20 people to create,” said Laura Peters, Marketing Director for Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc. “We are so pleased with the result. The increased access closed captioning offers to our global community means that people from around the world can benefit from learning this new software”

Titles available with closed captioning include:

Final Cut Pro X – Workflow & Editing

Final Cut Pro X – New Features (10.0.3)

About JFD Communications, LLC 
JFD Communications, LLC, was founded in 2010 by Mandy David. With more than 20 years experience in interpreting for and working with the deaf, Mandy felt that much more could be done to provide high-quality communication services to reach this significantly under-served market. JFD now provides closed captioning services for broadcast and web media, in-person interpreters for events, and consulting services for companies that want to improve their ability to communicate more effectively with all members of their community.
