Think Different?

YouTube Changes the Way We Think

This is what's so fascinating about online video culture. DIY tools for shooting, editing, and broadcasting video aren't just changing who uses the medium. They're changing how we use it. We're developing a new language of video—forms that let us say different things and maybe even think in different ways.

I guess we're on the cutting edge of sociatal revolution (with apologies to Rush)

New LiveSets™ Released

NewTek announced the release of LiveSet™ Pack Volume 1, a series of five virtual sets designed for use with TriCaster PRO™, TriCaster STUDIO™ and TriCaster BROADCAST™ portable live production and virtual set systems and VT[5] production suite.

"NewTek LiveSet Packs allow video producers to add high production value without adding to their budget," said Rex Olson, vice president, content development, NewTek Inc. "Now, it's easy to get a large expensive studio look in a very small production space."

It also offers additional set locations to enable the inclusion of reporters or guests from a secondary reporting station and double box effects, which allows the background display to be either video or the virtual set environment.
