Keys of Art: Bringing the art of the movie trailer to pre-wedding videos Case Study

When you think about wedding videos, the typical thought is the event itself, being captured for posterity. But Keys of Art in Thessaloniki, Greece came up with another idea — the pre-wedding video. A short film that serves as a trailer for the individual lives that are about to become one. Bringing two lives together in a short film, in a short span of time, can be daunting.

Key of Art's Deligiorgis Athanasios (cinematographer and editor) and Dimitrios Milonas (photographer) needed an editing system that would be fast and versatile, while providing for creative expression.

TourGigs: Recreating the Live Experience with EDIUS Case Study

If you've ever been to a great live concert of your favorite band and wished you could have a video of the show to relive the experience, Jake Saxbe and Ty Roberts have the answer. The two seasoned rockers (along with a third partner, Fletcher Lee) have founded Austin, Texas-based TourGigs which produces a multi-camera recording of live concerts and makes high-quality Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and downloads of each show they shoot available for sale online within days of the show.

TourGigs has produced more than fifty shows around the globe in places like Colorado, California, England, Jamaica, the Bahamas, New York, Boston, Chicago and Texas using up to 14 cameras ranging from the Panasonic Lumix GH-3, to the Blackmagic Design Cinema 4K and Canon C-300, to the Sony F55 and F3 (all shooting at 1080p24). Footage captured is used to produce a line-cut live stream with a customized switcher built around Blackmagic Design hardware, a 24-channel PreSonus live mixing console and a streamlined workflow. The line-cut from the live stream is imported into EDIUS with the camera ISO feeds and assembled into a program using the line-cut as a guide. Sometimes there are minimal changes other times there are more.

The Road to UHDTV White Paper

Television's next evolution, while its end result might be deemed revolutionary by some, is Ultra High Definition TV (UHDTV), the next improvement in HD. While the major standards surrounding the technology have been identified and many have been worked out, the name, oddly enough, is still in flux. For production, we refer to it as 4K; CE manufacturers call it Ultra High Definition (UHD); the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) calls it UHDTV1 or 2160p (UHDTV2 describes 8k). For purposes of this paper, it will be labeled UHDTV or UHDTV 4K.

Hybrid Routers: A New Era of Routing White Paper

When embedded audio first came about it was considered a universal solution for many audio woes, for which it has been very useful. However, as is the case with many new technologies unforeseen problems may arise, specifically, when the embedded content needs to be manipulated. Additionally, video and audio control rooms have to use both embedded and discrete audio coming from sources such as microphones.

Yes. By combining traditionally external processing equipment with discrete audio and video routers we have entered a new era in routing; the era of the hybrid router.
