Francesco Schiavon

Francesco Schiavon
Francesco Schiavon is a recognized expert in the topic of digital media deployment for web and optical disc. A dedicated educator, Francesco has spent the last decade teaching in some of Canada's leading multimedia schools.


By Martin Sitter

Early in 2000, I became fascinated with interactive video deployment, and specifically, interactive video in QuickTime Player. At the time, there were less than a handful of people teaching this topic ... but Francesco was one of them.

Francesco has been a mentor to me. He knows video compression better than anyone around (I know the people at the top of this game, and IMHO, Francesco rules the roost). In fact, Francesco's compression knowledge has been requested by Apple on many occasions, including as a guest speaker at the now defunct, but always infamous, QuickTime Live conventions.

You can see Francesco's compression skills daily at his cooking how-to portal, rouxbe.com.

As an author, Francesco has contributed to the Streaming Media Bible (Hungry Minds), QuickTime Pro 5 & 6 (Friends of Ed), and the LiveStage Pro Handbook (Morgan Kaufmann).

The instructional exercises in these books come from experience sharpened in front of the classroom. A seasoned lecturer and presenter, Francesco has instructed at the Vancouver Film School, The Art Institute (Vancouver) and at elite private courses for industry professionals.

But most importantly, Francesco produces training for macProVideo.com ...
