It's been a long summer, fall is in the air and we're ready to face some new challenges--we're preparing to upgrade our studio, will possibly be adding the following:
- HD cameras
- DVD to Blu-ray transfer
- Delivery on Blu-ray
- Tapless video acquisition
As many videographers are or have already upgraded to the new technology, we have been considering doing the same--however, many clients do not ask for HD video or Blu-ray discs, even though the picture quality is better and many movies/TV shows are being released on Blu-ray.
Tapeless acquisition is becoming the way to go--consumer MiniDV, VHS, Hi8 and VHS-C cassettes are rapidly disappearing from retail stores (although professional grade MiniDV is still around), indicating big changes are on the horizon. Until it's time to finally go with the flow, we'll continue using what we have, as it has served us well and should continue to do so.
The 2011 Fenton Moose Idol is coming up on the 17th, be sure to check out some past performances on our site and this year's as they're added; there will be many talented folks competing, let's cheer them on as they go for the gold!
That's it for now, stay tuned for updates!
