The Digital AC 201 class builds on knowledge gained from the 101 class. This class will approach the curriculum from a professional camera prep point of view. You will learn to build camera packages according to the needs of production. Issues such as aspect ratio, frame rates, monitoring scenarios, and codecs will be discussed.

Internal and external recording scenarios will also be tested and discussed.
