Welcome to the end of the year update from AV8 Media. We've got lots to share ,with 2 new Premiere Pro instructors and a range of new MDA approved specialty courses just for media practitioners. We also have a range of new software designed to make streaming and archiving a breeze.
Adobe Premiere Pro courses : Premiere 101 and 250
We are happy to announce that we have not one but TWO new Adobe Premiere instructors .After defeating 12 ninja video specialists with a flurry of L cuts and ripple edits in a secret facility deep beneath Adobe's offices , Ian Wee and Gerard Tay have been certified as instructors for Premiere Pro.
They will be teaching
Adobe Premiere Pro 101 ,targeted at beginners to editing
Premiere Pro 250,targeted at experienced editors making the switch to Adobe Premiere Pro.
Ian Wee is a familiar face at AV8 ,as he teaches most of our Sterescopic 3D courses and is also a FCP certified instructor. While Gerard may no be familiar to you ,you've probably seen his work. He's won awards for his editing on Fighting Spiders and was post supervisor for The Challenger : Muay Thai. He's also a regular contributor to websites like the LA FCP user group (lafcpug.org ) and Creative Cow.

One click archiving from Avid,FCP or Premiere
Proxsys PA series systems are a solution that allow you to choose a project file from Avid, Premiere or FCP.and have the sofware archive not only the project but all the associated media files. When it does this it also creates low resolution searchable proxy files of the video clips that you can search on a browser.
An example of how it works is shown below
