Video editing has come a long way since the days of manually retouching film or being forced to use tedious cutting-room techniques and equipment. With modern digital video equipment, producing professional-quality movies, shorts and videos is more accessible than it's ever been. From recording to editing to broadcast, all you need is the right hardware to put together your own video editing studio. For filming on the fly, a handheld video recorder is the perfect solution. They make it quick and easy to capture video virtually anywhere. Unlike many video recorders, the TASCAM and Alesis models have stereo microphones built in to make sure the quality of the sound is as high as the video itself. The ION Twin Video camera, on the other hand, has front and rear cameras that can record simultaneously, making it perfect for YouTube or reaction videos.
If you're looking to capture or broadcast video to and from HD sources, MOTU's video interfaces are a valuable tool for your workstation. These units have a number of HDMI and component video connection options for turning your Mac or PC into an all-in-one digital video editing system. If you decide on one of these interfaces, take care to pick out the right connection option: the ExpressCard version if you use a laptop, or the PCI-express version for a desktop computer. Read More >
