Aggie presentations captured by HD Vision
Texas A&M commissioned HD Vision of Irving, TX, to produce two HD presentations for its Les Appelt Aggieland Visitor Center. The productions featured various aspects of the 44,000-student campus and surrounding communities.
All images for the productions were captured using Sony HDC-700A cameras with Canon 9×1 and 18×1 lenses. The programs will be stored on an Avid/Pluto Hyperspace HDCAM server and projected by a JVC DLA-M4000 using a Panja System for server and lighting control with Dolby 5.1 sound.
HD Vision retained the services of 16×9 Productions to produce both of the presentations for the university.
Fujinon lenses go “Searching for Noah's Flood”
Director of photography Foster Wiley of DC-based Wiley Dowd Productions was given the task of “Searching for Noah's Flood.”
He took along Fujinon HD lenses on a Panasonic AJ-HDC20A HD camcorder. Fujinon HA20×7.8BERM and HA10×5.2BERM HD lenses were used for shooting the special.
“Searching for Noah's Flood” is the tentative title of a National Geographic special to air this summer on PBS that chronicles the search for parallels between the well-known biblical flood and evidence of a catastrophic flood in the Black Sea in Turkey in 5600 B.C. Noted explorer/oceanographer Bob Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic, led the exploration looking for signs of ancient civilization and sea vessels.
