AV Foundation -- introduced in iOS 4, ported to Lion, and enhanced further in iOS 5 -- delivers a comprehensive framework for audio and video capture and playback. The capture functionality is so good, it's now the preferred option for still photography applications. In this session, we'll focus squarely on AV Foundation as a media capture framework. Attendees will learn:
* How to get the most out of the device for still photography, by using AV Foundation to access the flash, white-balance, and image resolution.
* How to capture audio and video to the file system
* How to process incoming audio and video capture buffers in memory, to create real-time effects or pick out interesting parts of the scene on the fly
