Jo Booth, Mesh Networks
Jo has a keen interest in new technology including communications, redundant networks and communications (particularly after critical events), digital photography and multimedia technologies.
He is vice president of the WelMac, the Wellington Macintosh Society Inc, the largest Mac users group in New Zealand and is on the executive committee of Unlimited Potential, a Wellington IT association. He is also an active member of the Wellington Linux Users Group, WellyLUG.
Jo has facilitated the WelMac New Media special interest group, and helped to create and organise several key events including the nationwide amateur short movie competition and festival MovieFest; the 2005 IT Careers Fair; and the 2006 Gadgets, Games and Geeks exhibitor showcase. His recent developing project is Mesh|net, which is involved in implementing community based network and broadband technologies that can be used for bandwidth intensive multimedia content, such as on demand delivery of high definition video, and community collaboration projects.
Internet video is now mainstream and is creeping into business websites. Jo will explain the various options for embedding non-streaming downloadable video into websites, covering the pros and cons of the various options available for delivery. This will include third party websites such as Google's YouTube, RSS/Pod casts and developing for the various platforms Flash, Quicktime, and Windows Media.
He will explain the steps needed to create good video, and then address optimisation, bandwidth and other issues relevant to a commercial web developer.
