Q: What benefits are there to Bluray Discs?
A: The main benefit of Bluray is picture quality. Only Bluray discs can play High Definition video which has a frame size more that twice the size of standared definition video. Bluray discs also offer more storage capacity so sometimes unedited footage can fit on the same disc as the edited video.
Q: Do you shoot with DSLR cameras?
A: Yes and No. Video from DSLR cameras look amazing, but there are serious drawbacks to using them for a live event. They lack many features that normal video cameras have (after all, they are photo cameras). That is why we use a digital cinema camera instead which gives you the look of DSLR video and also has the normal video camera features crucial to shooting a live event.
Best of both worlds!
