Re: [Mann] Editing HD tandem-footage on-the-spot, fast. Any ideas?

In reply to:
setting up a new video editing system, because our cameramen are already filming in HD, but customers are still getting SD videos as we're burning everything onto DVD's. And that's not cool.

So you want to burn on Blue ray?

I have thought about this, and as many customers are ready for this, many are not.

Wouldn't you be better sticking with SD for now and actually editing on a computer and get the the high definition when you and your customers are ready?

Correct me if I am wrong but you can't burn HD footage onto a dvd, so you have to use Blue ray or HDDVD, which not everybody has a player. and HDDVD is going the same way as Beta video?

So you will have to do both SD and blue ray and your camera guys will have to get HD lenses.

It is close for all that but not quite there yet I don't reckon.

Computer editing is an undertaking on its own and you will find less and less cameras with editing functions in them.

You said you do all the editing on the camera that is also HD. Is that a HD mini DV camer or what camera/editing?

Burning in HD is is a whole other can of worms.
