Q. What is Non Linear Editing?
A. Non Linear Editing (NLE) is editing using random-access video storage. It means you can get access to your video from a hard drive randomly and instantly. The video files on your hard drive are just like normal Word documents, you can load, watch, manipulate, any part of the file in a non-linear mode. Instead of using jog shuttles and special video decks, you simply capture the video to your hard drive. You can then edit and rearrange the shots much like moving paragraphs around in your word processing program. Since the video is digitized, you can instantly get to any exact point in the video.
Q. What is FireWire?
A. Also known as IEEE1394 or iLink, FireWire is a interface standard that allows super high speed data transfer. When you use a DV (digital video) camcorder the video is passed directly from the camcorder to the hard drive. Because the signal stays digital through the entire process, you get zero loss and a final video with identical video quality to the original footage.
Q. Is your edit suite digital?
A. Yes. Our studio features two digital video editing suites. We take your tape and convert it from analog tape to a digital format. From that point on there is no loss of quality.
