My name is Ben and I work for a small transcription company called Word Wizards. We are currently working on a new product to further improve the workflow benefits of using transcripts during video production. I am trying to identify how many producers out there still use transcripts with time code in their post production process. Please weigh in on this if you feel you have something to share.
Grab your camera and go! That's what many of us think when it's time to shoot. But take a step back and think - would it have been better to get your camcorder? or something else? What do we actually mean when we say camera and camcorder?
Sometimes I really hate technology. OK. I'm no technophobe, but lately, it seems that just as soon as I learn the new updates to some software, they go and makes changes on me and I either have to update again, or buy fresh and start over.OK. Maybe I don't HATE technology.. but wasn't it supposed to make our lives easier?
SO now we can see some new toys from Apple have been announced. Wow the new MacBook Pro is sweet but is the new tech worth the hype? My assessment is that once again Apple is releasing Technology before the market can provided components and accessories to utilize it.
Yeah, thunderbolt is cool, but there are no thunderbolt audio / video interfaces yet and the new MacBook Pro doesn't come with a Firewire port!! They say next December there will be a converter, but what can people do until then???
There was a time when a person could buy a piece of technology and expect it to be at the relative top of technological advancements for almost a year, but alas, those days are far behind us. In light of these facts, we'll take a close look at what is coming around the corner in the world of camcorder technology.
