ou’re right Neil… Now your clients can shoot video on an i-phone, edit on their i-pad, one day they'll decide they don’t need you any more; you’ll just say “Well it’s just keeping up with the times”

You are correct, They don't need me anymore
I closed my facility in 2001
I had a old school big steel shop
CMX,ADO,Deveous,Chyron,GVG Switchers, 1",D2,D3, BetaSP,Digibeta
and 32 racks of other stuff.
All done in by Avid, Things Change my friend,Things Change
So you ask, Why did I close my shop after 21 years?
At which point I also owned a few Avid MC8000's
Short answer: I didn't see a way that I could continue the way
I wanted to (having great people,paying good salaries & benifits
and making money for myself) at what I saw as a future of
constant pressure on rates and increasing competition brought on by
innovation & technology.(AVID) and a diminishing barrier to
entry. In short it was going to become the land of the digital slave
and it wasn't for me. You make jokes about Iphones, well all I can
say is, turn on the news, any show, and you will see Cell Phone footage being aired. The electronic versions of Zapruder.
In the late 70's and 80's I was part of a
news stringer operation in NYC. We had guys out all night running around looking for stories. Two person crew, one carried a RCA TK76
camera and 40 pounds of batteries the other guy carried around
a 3/4" deck (BVU50)and another 40 pounds of batteries.
These guys were connected by an umbilical.
That's Over, Done, Stick a fork in it, replaced by a cell phone
or 200 dollar flip phone.
Don't for a heartbeat discount new technology,
It will be banging on your door soon.
I also see the complete elimination of tape sometime soon
SSD's are going to eat tape for lunch
