Navigating the Video’s Time Line

Have you noticed all those red naviagtion dots embedded into LectureMaker’s video player? These dots allow a viewer to quickly get a sense of what content is included in the video.

“I usually regret when people ask me to watch online video because I just don’t know if my time will be well spent – especially a long video – so I added these red dot hot navigation spots to put online video back on Internet time” – said Ron Fredericks, designer of LectureMaker’s video player.

With these navigation dots, the nature of “Watch my video” has really changed for the better!

Here is a list of navigation dots embedded into this video.  This may help you quickly find content of interest in this video.

Deep-Pixel Event Photograph

The seating area was completely full as attendees listened to the data mining expert panel.

The snapshot presented here shows LectureMaker’s high-definition portable broadcast video studio with two seperate video cameras and several other media sources. Two studio lights are seen on either side of the panel discussion table to help reduce video noise.

    Hi Ron – I am a representative from SAS. Was wondering if there is still time to coordinate the recording of my session. If not, no worries. But if there’s still time – please let me know what I would need to do to make it happen. Also – is there a cost involved to record the session? Thanks very much. Roland Chow. 415-694-3361.
