How to Set Up Your YouTube Live Events

Basically a way to stream to your Youtube account. In this video, I show you what you need to get approved for streaming, the process of setting up an event and of course streaming it. I use Wirecast for the software host (Get Wirecast Here). You can use other software, especially if you are setting up more than one camera.

With this, they are able to provide specialized management consulting for top clients and customers. With this program, when a customer make a purchase with APM, they send in a CA fellow with real-world experience leading that type of implementation with the Fortune 100 company.

Jason English on LISA and Service Virtualization – CAWorld 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI got to talk with Jason English, Director of product marketing at CA Technologies. He joined the team when CA acquired ITKO – an enterprise software company dealing in virtualization, SOA and cloud computing.  Their program suite called LISA deals with service virtualization. With LISA, you can test, validate and deploy a program. You can simulate mainframes, databases and whatever your system needs. This CAWorld for Jason is about Dev Ops. The application delivery bridges the gaps in dev ops. From idea to deployment instantaneously. A lot has to happen for that – which is where LISA comes in. Accelerating the development process.

HP Z1 All in One Workstation for Minimal Space Video Editing – NAB 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSHP showed off two high-end video production machines at NAB this year. The Z820 and the Z1 All-in-one workstation. Dan Bennett guided us through this Z1 workstation with the all-in-one form factor. Some great highlights included the ease of opening this all-in-one system, hydraulics so you don’t close the case too quickly and the optimization for thermal and acoustic performance. The HP Z1 ranges from a Core-i3 all the way to a Xeon processor. Other features – MXM Thermal card video processing, an internal USB so you can put the software key dongle into the computer and lock it so someone can’t steal the dongle. Pro Tools iLock license dongle would be a good example. If you don’t need that, you can put in a wireless keyboard or Bluetooth USB connector. Pricing for the Z1 starts at $1700 (Core i3 with integrated graphics)....

HP Z820 Workstation for Video Production – NAB 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSDuring our interviews at NAB I kept hearing about the Z820 and Z1 workstations by HP. So I went right to the source to find out what makes these desktop computers so special. I met up with Dan Bannett, HP workstation lead engineer. We tore apart a HP Z820 desktop with dual Xeon processors to see just how powerful this machine is. The Z820 was a RED edition – with RED mockup bay to show how to connect your RED camera and use the Rocket encoding card. We also learned about Fusion-IO partnership with the IOFX card for uncompressed 4k video work. We also look at the HP Z1 workstation, which you can see in the next video.
