#Elements of the Viewing Environment
Instructor: Bill Thomas, InfoComm

The viewing environment is where your AV system meets the learner’s eyes. What are the most important visual factors to consider in designing or renovating your learning spaces? Explore how factors such as contrast ratio, display sizing, viewing distances, seating arrangement and sight lines affect your faculty’s ability to communicate their message clearly.

#Applying ARL’s Code of Best Practices in Fair Use To Media Preservation and VHS Digitization.

Instructor: Peter Jaszi, Professor of Law Faculty Director of the Glushko-Samuelson Intellectual Property Clinic

Can media librarians digitize the VHS collections? What does a media technician need to know to adequately advise an instructor on digitizing material? Several of the Codes of Best Practices in fair use which Prof. Jaszi and his colleague Patricia Aufderheide have been helping practice communities to produce over the last decade may be relevant to the professional activities of workshop participants. See http://www.centerforsocialmedia.org/fair-use. The 2011 Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries deals, for example, with such issues as digitization of collections for preservation and access, electronic reserves, the legal status of contributions to institutional repositories, and more. Participants should bring examples of issues that have arisen in their work for discussion by the group.

Instructor Bio: Peter Jaszi teaches domestic and international copyright law at American University Law School, supervises students in its Glushko-Samuelson Intellectual Property Law Clinic and writes about copyright history and theory. With Craig Joyce, Marshall Leaffer and Tyler Ochoa, he co-authors a standard copyright textbook, Copyright Law (Lexis, 8th ed., 2010). He and Martha Woodmansee edited The Construction of Authorship, published by Duke University Press in 1994. Their new collection, Making and Unmaking Intellectual Property (edited with Mario Biagioli), was published by the University of Chicago Press in Spring 2011. In 1994, Prof. Jaszi was a member of the Librarian of Congress’ Advisory Commission on Copyright Registration and Deposit, and in 1995 he was an organizer of the Digital Future Coalition. He is a Trustee of the Copyright Society of the U.S.A., and a member of the editorial board of its journal.

#Elements of the Listening Environment
Instructor: Bill Thomas, InfoComm

The listening environment is where your AV system meets the learner’s ears. Discover how factors such as loudspeaker placement, ambient noise, room construction, and microphone placement affect the learner’s ability to clearly understand their instructors and in-room media.

#Design Concepts for Evolving AV Technologies and Campus-wide Distribution
Instructor: Joel Carroll CTS, Extron Regional Applications Specialist

Designing AV solutions for teaching spaces involves developing a strategy to support and distribute a diverse range of AV sources. From local collaboration systems to remote streaming, successful connectivity depends on properly managing AV signals and distribution for the campus AV environment, while also considering the larger expectations of the organization. This seminar will provide strategies to manage and maintain digital video signals and explore methods for their distribution.

Seminar Objectives:
1. Review design concepts for the technology-diverse teaching space
2. Understand how to properly manage and distribute digital video signals
3. Consider three major categories of distribution: twisted pair cable, fiber optic cable, and network streaming
