    Mr. Wietholter, Would you please re-link info and registration page? The current link leads to a nonexistent page. Thank you! Cedar
  10. Playback Kit

    Hi Brian, I sent an email to you this morning... the one attached to your Yahoo Legal Video Forum. If that isn't the correct one, let me know and we can discuss.
  11. Playback Kit

    I bought all equipment necessary to do trial playbacks a couple of years ago. Never used the equipment. I've decided to continue to use subs for playbacks and go a different direction. I'm in the Philadelphia area. All of the equipment would be too expensive to ship. If you have an interest, my # is 267 992-6289. We can discuss the equipment included. Thanks.

  24. What are your HD Deliverable Encoding Bit Rates?

    Craig, the likelihood is the size of the video display aspect ratio is not creating your "syncing" issue. I sync 720x480 MPEG-1 all the time without any problems. I often use YesLaw instead of Timecoder, however, which may be the difference maker as to why I don't see issues with this specific size and codec. Jan Ozer talks about the old Power of 0.75 formula in the linked article. It will give you a good starting point on calculating an appropriate bitrate for your larger MPEG-1 video, based on what you think is good at the smaller 352x240 DAR (display aspect ratio). You can make HD MPEG-1 video. It falls well within the spec. MPEG-1 does not support interlaced video, and it's not as efficient (small versus quality) when compared to a properly encoded for legal video MPEG-4.
  25. There are three, primary aspects of the legal video field. At the AGCV, we have positioned our Certification Courses to support these three, key areas of emphasis. Join us as we take a look at each one and break them down a little bit so that you know what to expect and how your career can progress through these three phases of legal video.

  26. AVCHD, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-3, MPEG-4, H.265, WMV, Ogg Vorbis, FLV, 3GPP, the list goes on and on... Making sense of which video file format to choose is only the first step. Then you have to consider frame size, pixel aspect ratio, GOPs, constant bit rates, variable bit rates, multipass encoding... Again, the list goes on and on. Join Jason Wietholter and the AGCV as we break down deposition video deliverables to make them easy for you to produce and easy for your clients to work with. Learn More & Register
  27. What are your HD Deliverable Encoding Bit Rates?

    I think the big issue is what the clients can actually play on their computers. MPEG-1 is by far the go to deliverable. It plays on any computer. I've been experimenting on delivering MPEG-1's at 720x480 @ 2mbps audio @ 2kbps. The video looks great at full screen. The issue we have been having with that is the auto-synching with TimecoderPro sometimes is off. I asked TCP about that and they said it would work if you were doing it at 4mpbs, I tried it, it didn't work either. MPEG-4 as a deliverable is the way to go in my opinion. However, most people don't know that MP4's only play in WMP 12. The very first time I delivered in MP4 I got a call from the attorney saying he couldn't play it on his older computer. I had just found out about MP4s not being able to play in older WMP's and told him about that and fortunately he asked if VLC player would work, which it does. From that point I decided to go back to MPEG1 deliverables and not have to worry about the frantic call from an atty in trial pissed off because he couldn't play the video. The old saying if it ain't broke don't fix it really apply's here.
