: Waiting for the Main Event
Ok. It's Thanksgiving. Helped my mom prepare dinner for 14 people, and found a way to shoot some stills and video along the way.
The main event is not dinner however. It is next week's big medical meeting we are putting on.
I just responded to an email from Sao Paulo, and was exchanging messages with Kuwait last night. We have people from 30 countries attending this meeting, and about 30 US states are represented as well.
I finalized the audiovisual gear - 9x12 screens with DLP projectors, audio, video switcher and lots o cables. We are doing a live switch to tape and plan to record direct to disk using OnLocation. As long as we are bringing our cameras and decks we might as well take an editing system along for the ride too. In theory this will save 24 hours of digitizing later.
Yesterday we added a satellite truck to the mix. I will leave it to that crew to figure out how to run cables from Times Square to the 4th floor ballroom!
So this is the main event. T minus 7 days and counting.
Thanks for reading.
PS - This post was written on my phone - don't worry, I already helped set the table!
