I’m James Deane.
I’ve been shooting, managing and producing webcast events since 1998, when video was QCIF and about as small as a postage stamp. 176 × 144, 15 fps, 38kbps.
Now I stream with an all digital workflow, ingesting HD-SDI and broadcasting at high bit rates and HD settings. I manage a team of webcast producers that are the best at what they do.
Things have come a long way in 15 years.
I also shoot video when I can, and love lghting and framing for dramatic film. There’s only so much time in the day.
I’m happily married, 3 kids and a dog. I live in Toronto – the best city in the word, in the best country in the world.
