LED lighting green hue

While taking a video in a coal mine I used aTriopo LED panel light, due to size and being battery operated, and the resulting footage when played back had a distinct green hue. The LED light is dimmable and can be adjusted between 3200K and 5600K using alternative rows of LED to create the colour t...

As Brian has already given a flavour of the video content of the show I will try and cover some of the other aspects of it. At one of the Filmmaking workshops the benefits...

Re: Where to from here?

[They managed to attract entries from budding professionals which we aren't getting today, more's the pity, because I honestly don't think that the standard has risen since those days, possibly it has even regressed] Thus is the rub! There are many young filmmakers across the UK who make films, that...

Re: Where to from here?

Most Universities have their own filmmaking section and this can be a very productive element or become just another social film viewing group. I don't know if the IAC has any links to these filmmaking groups, one of the problems is that due to the nature of their membership, continuity and ongoing ...

HDMI Signal extenders over CAT5 cable

I have to produce images from my pc for a show over some distance. I believe one solution is to use HDMI line extenders using CAT5 cable to link up the HDMI output of my computer to the corresponding on the remote projector.

Re: Creating a searchable video archive

Thanks for the info. I'm looking for something similar to CatDV that can capture, analyse and store HDV, AVCHD and SD formats. I think that CatDV is limited in the range of video formats it can capture and handle. Plex looks a very comprehensive media management system, and for club members interfac...

Creating a searchable video archive

Looking for suggestions on the best way to create a archive of video footage that will provide a file index that is searchable. The idea is to use a server of some sorts that will allow saved video files to quickly be found and viewed via a HDMI link to a projector. If you have a club set up that pr...
