I record sports for a small college teams using my own Canon GL2. The color and sound are great and the production timeline has been manageable. I'd shoot a game on tape one evening, do a little editing overnight and deliver discs to coaches the next morning.
Because of changes in the conference, we'll need to produce discs for the opposing team right after the game. Consequently, we need to record directly to some type of device in real time. I've seen several concepts used at other schools...outputting the signal to a computer, recording to a DVD deck, etc. but am looking for the simplest, most cost-effective method.
Does anyone have a recommendation? Details are appreciated...
Incidentally, I still plan to record to tape as well, for archival purposes...I'll use that copy to create highlight reels!
