TV Technology has been a weekly part of my professional career dating way back to the early-mid 90′s. If you’re college student in a “trade” you always load up on all of the free subscriptions, and TV Technology was one of the better reads for gathering information on all that BetacamSP stuff we all longed for back in the day.
Consol has been featured in a number of these, and I find it kind of funny that I’m giving interviews for all of these trade mags that I used to read. Back when we were younger we would look at the guys in these articles and think “I’ll never be that smart or get there”. Turns out the smartness requirement was highly over-rated.
Robin did a pretty good job trying to fit 100 topics into a tight word count. I would have liked to go a little bit deeper on the file management and stuff like that, but honestly our setup is so complex and there are so many layers of technology in there that it’s tough to get it into one story. It’s sort of like when I knew Phish was on David Letterman or something like that and I’d hope they’d let them jam on for a 10 minute song instead of the standard 3.5. Nice thought, but not grounded in reality.
