As part of my weekly podcast – Digital Production BuZZ – I get to interview some truly interesting people. Sometimes, when I prerecord these interviews, I get more material than I can use for the show.
This was the case last night when I interviewed Rob Sheeley, President of Vaddio, a manufacturer and distributor of robotic cameras. When I was doing daily production, robotic cameras were large, clunky, VERY expensive, and not particularly useful.
However, when Rob told me that fully remote-controllable cameras could cost as little as $8,000, be put in places that a human operator could not work, and have a broadcast-quality image, I was very impressed.
Part of the interview that I needed to cut for time, though, was his description of the recent evolution of the industry, which I found very interesting. So, I thought I would post it here so you could listen to it as well.
