AirScouter Wearable Display from Brother for Monitoring Video

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSAs a videographer, sometimes you can’t poise a camera to view through the eyepiece or even the display. If you are moving with your camera, sometimes you have to trust it’s capturing the way you want it. External monitors help, but you can’t always keep your eyes on it while moving. Brother has a solution to this in the AirScouter. This is a head-worn device that displays a 720p image in one eye. As you move throughout the shot, you can simply glance up to the screen to see if you are in the frame you envisioned. This is a wired pack, connected through SDI (HDMI version may also become available). Brother does make a wireless AirScouter for drone use. If you need to shield the sun, simply wear a hat. If you need even more light removal, you can get...

Switcher Studio Uses Your Phone for Facebook Live Cameras

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThis is not a new idea, but it is a newer innovation. Systems have tried to incorporate mobile video in their production switchers, but there has normally been a fail, especially when audio is involved. Switcher Studio has worked out that problem and turned their program to all mobile devices. I first saw this program at SXSW when a one-on-one interview was being conducted. Two phones, one iPad (for switching the video content). The phones would connect to the iPad via WiFi, then the iPad would not only swap out the video, but also add lower 3rds, graphics, and pre-recorded scenes. I grilled Switcher Studio on the latency issues. The biggest issue being lag from a phone to the audio track being supplied. I was assured that as long as audio came into the iPad via Lightning or headset, it will...

NewTek Open Source NDI Standard for Video Production

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIn a video production environment, spreading out tasks between computers can help in many different ways. From producing the video for public consumption to creating archive and even monitoring systems. Network Device Interface (NDI) is a standard that can bridge devices together – and you don’t even have to own a Tricaster. While at NAB, I talked with Phillip Nelson of NewTek about this open standard. NDI was announced back in 2015 to communicate with devices over Gigabit Ethernet. A standard that almost all corporate and video production buildings (even home studios) have. The idea is to have one computer send video or other items over to the production machine without having to convert or render. The end result is a reduction in production workflow. Many different programs have already adopted NDI into their systems. You don’t even need NewTek products...

HP Autonomy Broadcast Monitoring: Get a Timeline Look at Social Media – NAB 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWhen I first saw this program, I was reminded of the newsroom bulletin board. Above the board was the LED sign that scrolled new news while the board had post-it notes of information breaking when people found it. Now you can have all that on one screen with a lot more option. Broadcast Monitoring can not only give you a timeline of events but you also don’t have to do it yourself. Put in the event and you can see real-time tweets, video, demographics and more. A massive amount of information at your fingertips. David Humphrey shows us this great software. At the time, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher’s death was trending so we got to see how the social media universe dealt with that.
