HPE Discover 2016 Blogger Coffee Talks – 4K 360 Video

This year at HPE Discover, I decided to put my Kodak PixPro SP360 to some major use. The task was to record the Blogger Coffee talks at the event. Each one is filled with lots of great content and I wanted to not only capture the speakers, but also the people asking the questions.

Case Logic Kontrast DSLR Camera Case Review

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWhen I travel with my camera gear, I look for a backpack that can hold everything I need for the plane, then have easy access when it comes to shooting. In my production, I don’t use DSLRs – I have prosumer cameras. Therefore, I need a slightly different organization over what a camera person would. The Kontrast Pro by Case Logic is a simple backpack that can hold all camera gear, a laptop and tablet easily. The nylon case with plastic base allows the case to never fold in on itself. Inside is a velcro compartment area that you can change to your needs. Perfect for a camera and around 9 different lenses. Overall, the size is 12.2 inches wide by 9.4 inches deep by 18.5 inches high. It will easily pass as a carry-on and even fit easily in some...

Sony URXP03D Easily Connects Wired and Wireless Microphones

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSIf you wanted to mic up a guest to an interview such as this one, you would need two wireless receivers to do it. Sony is now helping fix that with the UWP-D series wireless mics. The URXP03D is a receiver that not only can connect two wireless sources but also allows for two more inputs for many different operations. While at NAB 2016, I talked with Andy and learned about all the types of wireless they offer. The UWP-D series includes in-camera adapters and external adapters such as the URXP03D. This receiver is a 4-input, 2 output device. This means you can connect 2 wireless microphones – lavaliere or handheld – and either one or two microphones through the Mic Input (stereo connection). This will give you ability to mic the room and the speakers, then adjust for maximum performance. The...

The Great Digital Conversion 1

The Great Digital Conversion

I agree with Jeffrey that postponing the switch to digital over-the-air broadcast television is foolish. Problems are inevitable This just postpones them. I heard a report today that there are issues with closed captioning in the over-the-air digital signals. Here’s a news story. At the same time . . .

It’s the End of the DVD As We Know It (and I Feel Fine)

Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThat’s great, it started with video tapes, movies in the home at 8, Lenny Bruce is still not afraid. I remember when we got our first VCR. It was a Betamax and we had some of the coolest movies. Of course, the Beta went the way of the do do bird. Then it was VHS. Come and almost gone. Now it’s the DVDs turn. Earlier in the year the big question was “Who was going to replace DVD’s: HD DVD or Blu-Ray?” Now we know that answer – but does it matter? Blu-Ray players really haven’t been selling like hotcakes and if you have one, you know that it’s not the fastest thing on the planet. The ultimate irony is that Sony owned Beta and lost to VHS. Now Sony won with Blu-Ray, but will...
