A video experiment

[flashvideo filename=https://kevinsprague.com/media/Dracula1080.flv /] This is the video I shot of “Dracula”, Darrell Pucciarellos’ Ballet Metropolis Production
at the Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA on November 1st. My Nephew, Ruslan, danced the lead role and the whole cast did a marvelous job. The experiment here has to do with the creation and distribution of High-Definition (HD) video online. HD is a slightly moribund format outside of broadcast because there is no well-developed distribution mechanism (DVD’s are standard-definition). I’ve been playing with how best to bring access to this kind of media and in this case the original HD video (shot at 1080i) has been scaled down slightly to 720P and encoded as flash-video. I think the result is quite vivid. Watch it full screen!
