High Definition Medical Video

COW Blogs : Mike Cohen's Blog : High Definition Medical Video
No clever title this time. As we have been editing HD projects over the past year we have been collecting sample clips showing surgical and non-surgical training footage. This is just a sample.

The Sony HVR-V1U has proven to be a great camera for use in the sensitive operating room environment. It is lightweight enough to hang over an open incision, the battery life is long and the images are astounding. Given the potential negatives of HDV, we have found it to be a robust format with good color reproduction and ease of editing using Premiere. It is a processor hog and Premiere seems to want to re-index HDV on a regular basis, but the end result is what matters.

As we investigate tapeless ways to capture video including interfacing with new HD medical systems, we are developing some nice material.

But technology aside, as elucidated in this article:

getting great images is as much about knowing what you are looking at as it is knowing how to control your equipment.

For now, enjoy the show. Viewer discretion is advised.

I have a passion for my job, which entails training for medical professionals such as surgeons, nurses and administrators, not to mention various industries.

Technology is great, but how you apply your skills is what pays the bills.

Years ago I canceled my Media 100 support contract upon discovering what a treasure trove of helpful advice can be found on the Creative COW website. I am proud to be a part of this fantastic community.

In my blog I talk a little about media production, a lot about travel and workflow, and occasionally about cooking, nature and my four-legged friends.
