Nothing confuses more people faster than trying to figure out video compression. Yet, whether you want to go to DVD, the web, or venture into Blu-ray HD, using compression successfully is essential. This week, Andy Beach joins us to discuss what he learned about compression in his new book: “Real-world Video Compression.”

Thinking about Blu-ray, it’s time to check back with Bruce Nazarian, president of the DVD Association, to get the latest news. The last time Bruce was on, he spoke about the high costs of licensing pricing Blu-ray out of the reach of smaller companies. Time to see if that’s changed.

Scott Simmons was on a few weeks ago talking about the poor training of Final Cut editors – and causing a near-riot in the process. This week he’s back with something less incendiary – tips on getting better organized for editing.
