Eric Norrell, Applications Specialist for Desktop Products, Telestream

Eric Norrell applications specialist for desktop products for Telestream, joins us to talk about their latest update to Wirecast — version 4.1. This video production and streaming software is designed for live switching, production, and streaming. The latest release adds support for Lion (OS X 10.7) along with a variety of new ways to get media into the application; including the ability to integrate audio and video from multiple locations. With webcasts becoming ever more popular, we are very interested in what Eric has to say.

Ned Soltz, Contributing Editor, DV & Videography magazines

Ned Soltz, contributing editor for DV and Videography magazines, needs no introduction to The Buzz audience. We are delighted to have him as a regular on the show for his in-depth technical knowledge and his ability to make technology understandable. This week, Ned joins us to discuss picking the right audio gear for your edit suite. What gear works best for podcasting, for voice over recording, for all the different audio tasks you need to do that DON’T involve a camera. Join us this week and find out.

Frank Radice, Creative Advisor, Thought Development

Frank Radice, creative advisor for Thought Development, was formerly the president and chief marketing officer for the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). Recently, he started working with Thought Development to create ON-AIR Pro, a leading workflow automation system for Network and Cable television and Film and Gaming media promotion. This new software is the only production tracking system developed exclusively for and by entertainment marketing, designed to manage the on-air promotion processes. It integrates all phases of program scheduling and promo production from initial creative briefs to a final media delivery. It sounds good on their website, but what does it do, really? We invited Frank on to tell us more.

Jessica Sitomer, President, The Greenlight Coach

Jessica Sitomer, president, The Greenlight Coach, is another favorite regular on The Buzz. She returns this week to discuss how to keep up in this world of constant technological change. Especially for people in media, change is both remorseless and constant — and staying current can make the difference between survival and failure. Jessica joins us to share some of her secrets.
