I was invited to do a one-day seminar at a local University in the subject area of codecs, last year.

It was a total waste of time. I somehow got the erroneous impression that it was for the "film" students, but it turns out the institution offered it to the general public, and a few people attended, but not one person from their program showed up. The point to all this?

During the course of the day, I learned a few things (not that surprising), among them; everyone assumes that what the camera produces is what is being recorded (not even close to being true), and this stuff (meaning recording strategy and codecs) is not being taught, in any form. How many of us have had to patiently explain that someone's "24P" footage is actually pulldown 2997? Show of hands?

I realize that a solid understanding of optimal quantized storage would involve some, what is academically classed as "communication theory", in the sense of applied science/engineering, and not everyone really needs to know what the Nyquist threshold is, or why it is the core criterion for aliasing, but....

Come on, not knowing what "ink" is confounds me when someone claims to be a writer.

You mean "Old Ben"? Ben Kenobi?
