New Review Calls Ozer Book a Home Run

Or, to be precise, the reviewer, Sundiata Cowels, say that I “hit the ball out of the park” (which won’t fit in a headline). Here’s the opening paragraph:

The passing of Hurricane Irene (and the resultant power loss for five days) gave me ample time to catch up on my reading (by candle light no less). Streaming Media guru Jan Ozer has hit the ball right out the park with his book on video compression techniques, entitled (appropriately enough) “Video Compression for Flash, Apple Devices and HTML 5“. If you’ve ever wondered just what all of the adjustments and settings are for in Apple’s Compressor, Soreson’s Squeeze, Adobe’s Media Encoder or even Microsoft’s Expression, then you might want to give this book a good read.

Cowels found the book “rich and thoughtful” and praised the “immediacy of the information” that the book provides. He also liked the first hand account of streaming my first live production, which he found “an excellent primer on what could go wrong (and what can go right) as long as you pay attention to what you are doing.”
