The following courses, seminars, webinars, and workshops are in my “inventory”: I’ve presented each on at least one occasion. Contact me if you’re interested in any of these, either for in-house, private presentation, or for open, public presentation. If you have any ideas about organizing a public presentation in your city, please let me know: Being aware of some support early on makes it easier for the local sponsoring organization to commit to the event, and I'll add your name to the list to receive announcements (for that event only, unless you indicate otherwise).

You can review past public courses and seminars that I have presented, in the 1990s, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011.

I have taught courses for film and animation studios, workstation and PC manufacturers, companies that design and manufacture integrated circuits, and companies that make display systems and subsystems. I have presented courses on digital video, color science, color management, and other topics. You can review the syllabus for the 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day versions of the Digital Video Technology course.

When I teach a course on digital video, I usually arrange for each participant to be given a copy of my book, and I also distribute customized course note handouts. If you're interested in having me teach at your organization, telephone me, and we'll discuss your needs, my references, and my rates. I may also be available for consulting (much as I hate the word).
