Video and photeo - a video-like experience utilizing items you can see or hear - are increasingly a part your training. However, you've got a lot of learners who are remotely located and don't have a lot of bandwidth. And your IT department would like you to hold down on the streaming content because it's increasingly taking bandwidth. How do you deal with using even more video but not gobbling up bandwidth like crazy?

Participants in this session will examine some of the compression schemas and software available, both for free and otherwise, and see which ones make the smallest files and have the best temporal quality. At the end of the session, you'll understand how best to compress video based on file sizes and some real-world examples. You'll get a boatload of information that will enable you to make solid decisions about which compression techniques and which codecs you can use in Articulate or other eLearning development tools.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Which compression method makes the smallest file sizes
  • Which compression method gives the best temporal quality
  • What different kinds of compression software are available
  • How to create the best video (or audio) without breaking the servers

Intermediate-to-advanced designers, developers, project managers, managers, and directors. A knowledge of basic video and audio compression methods is helpful.
