2015 Convention Disks are Shipping!

It took forever, but at long-last, the video of the 2015 convention is now shipping. All the main talks were painstakingly edited from three cameras, (mostly) crystal-clear audio from the sound board, and the original Powerpoint slides photos and video clips digitally inserted. Some images have been reformatted for 16x9 presentation; in other places, there are zoom-ins or highlighting to help illustrate the presentation.

There are eight main talks, including both halves of Nick Klase on LED lighting, keynote speaker George Farmer, dirt expert Phil Edwards, Cavan interpreter Sean Murphy, Tom Barr, and Rachel O'Leary.

In addition, we've also got a highlight reel of the aquascaping workshop, and a 40-minute edit of the Iron Aquascaper challenge. Finally, three of the micro-talks are preserved (audio and slides only).

If you missed part (or all) of the convention, do yourself a favor and buy this disk. If you've got Blu-Ray, buy it in high-def for the same price!.
