Past Meeting Overview

If you missed the September Meeting, you missed a great meeting! David Scott from Dish Technologies gave a great presentation on the new SlingStudio Hub. David brought in a whole system showing how easy it is to setup and get running. Using cameras as small as handheld with HDMI out to using Smart Phones and even an iPod Touch as the camera source for a multicamera shoot. David was able to answer most of the questions that were presented. David made himself available to get even some of the more difficult questions answered. Even thought the New SlingStudio Hub is new, it has gone through many software upgrade (which are free) to add more functions benifits. Right now you need an iPad as your controller interface running the Console app., but we were told there are plans to have software for the Macbook Pro to be the interface for the unit. This unit can open many possibilities to the independant Videographer for offering additional services to their bag of tricks. And the price is reasonable for most independents.
