mithro-CarlFK, wtf?04:12
CarlFKI think this is how you make java work04:14
CarlFKyou will find this code in vimeo/__init__-v1.py04:15
CarlFK-v1 is because.. um..   I have no idea.04:16
CarlFKI think someone saw Chris's talk and missed the "don't do this."04:16

*** davetoo has joined #pycon-av04:44
davetooThe TDD Django guy keeps shaking his lav mic off :)04:50
davetooNo keyframes? Is that why youtube isn't showing me a preview in the timeline?04:51
mithro-hey davetoo04:52
mithro-daven, == Dave Noel?04:53
davetooright, and davetoo = Dave carmean04:53
*** davetoo is now known as _davetoo04:53
_davetoowhichever :)04:53
_davetoomithro-: = Tim?04:53
_davetooTim the Tim-Tam Man :)04:55
_davetoohow goes?04:55
_davetoo(I'm just getting around to watching videos of the sessions I would have wanted to attend, noticing interesting technical things)04:57
mithro-daven / _davetoo: could you write up a document on how to properly setup a sound mixing board and how you would control the levels on it?04:58
mithro-basically a "This is what I do when sitting at a mixing board, and this is why it's a good thing to do"04:58
_davetooI could probably come up with something, yeah.05:00
*** sylphiae has joined #pycon-av05:00
mithro-Dave was talking about setting everything to some level which gives be best signal or something05:01
_davetooright; 0db on the master meter = -18db on dvswitch05:01
_davetoothat's a common rule of thumb for digital recording05:01
_davetooWhen the ART boxes were in use, we used the knobs on the ART box to set that;05:02
_davetooI did not see what he did after the ART boxes started failing.05:02
_davetooWe also had a strange situation where we used the one board for recording and PA; that's not common on such a small board, so we had to get creative05:03
_davetooWhat I'd write is for the way he reconfigured them after he arrived05:03
_davetooIf you saw the big board in the big room, you'd see that most of the time all of the sliders (faders) were very close to '0' or Unity Gain.   You're trying to get all of the signals to line up around one standard output level.05:04
_davetooMake it as close to "wires with tone controls" as possible.05:05
_davetooWhen is the next gig/show?05:06
CarlFKMonday :)05:11
mithro-I was more interested in knowning from a "how could we automated this away"05:12
_davetoooh, I see, not a training document?05:12
mithro-first we figure out what a human does05:14
mithro-then we figure out how to make a computer do it :)05:14
_davetooThat requires things like auto-leveling amps and such :)05:14
_davetooWhich are.. pretty common in the broadcast realm05:15
_davetooMight be code out there05:15
_davetooWe overdid it a bit on the audio compression, which is why you can hear the echo so well in some of the big room talks05:16
_davetooCarlFK:  what/where is the show on Monday?05:16
mithro-_davetoo, let me worry about doing the computer side - Plenty of options - I just don't know enough about how a human does things05:17
mithro-what would people add to05:17
tpb<> (at
_davetooNot going to bother with composite? (sony bullet cams must be getting cheap)05:19
_davetoo(probably not worth the trouble)05:20
mithro-_davetoo, nope! it's dead - barely doing VGA05:20
_davetooWho is iiie? Roman?05:23
iiieyes :)05:23
mithro-what's a synonym for "Environment" or "Programming Language" which is really short....05:30
_davetooWhat's the context?05:31
_davetoo(in some cases, the word 'context' itself might work?)05:31
tpb<> (at
_davetooSolution Domain but that's not short05:33
mithro-If someone wants to make all the boxes on line and similar sizes that would be great :)05:35
tpb<> (at
mithro-Medium I guess could work?05:36
