This year, the Panopto team decided to create a holiday card using our own video capture technology. If you haven’t seen the card yet, it can be found here:
The holiday card takes advantage of some unique Panopto functionality – specifically, the ability to record multiple tracks of HD video across a distributed network of computers and mobile devices. This multi-camera recording capability, combined with a playback feature called Tile View, allowed us to create an e-card comprised of nine separate video tracks with almost no post-production:
Here’s how we created the card:
Of course, distributed multi-camera recording has very practical uses in business and education. For example, it allows you to record or live stream a professional looking presentation or event without any specialized AV equipment. In this case, though, it simply made for a convenient way to create a nice holiday greeting.
We wish all of you a happy holiday season and all the best for 2013.
