Newtek's TriCaster family has transcended being used solely for live production, and is now found in many creative projects where post production is needed.  The hurdle is now getting the media generated by TriCaster into various editorial platforms for editing. I've drawn up a handy-dandy guide for planning and using this media within Avid Media Composer and Symphony.  This is valid for any of the current TriCaster models which support Quicktime wrapped ISO recordings.

So, from the michaelkammes.com camp: big news - Kate Miller has agreed in principal to spend the rest of her life with me, and that suits me just fine.  It's a good thing, or so I'm told.  I personally think she's nuts for spending 3 years with me, let alone the next 70.  But as soon as ink hits paper, she's mine and I'm hers, and our geek powers shall set you free. And while I've known for a while she was the one, how I was going to do it that would be good fodder for dinner parties and for post production industry acronym discussions - that angle eluded me.  GEEK, NERD, + MARRIAGE PROPOSAL Google searches seemed to pop up cool ideas, but nothing that married (ahem) my life choice of Post Production with my life mate choice of Kate. Then it dawned on me: 3D.  It's future viability in this world aside, it offers a technical and logistical challenge, and would be something she wouldn't see coming.  2 things which could be a whole 'lotta fun to exploit.

Matt Stratton turned me on to Clicky Stats awhile ago, and through Clicky, I’m able to see what web searches come up with my blog as a result. I also see when these searches lead them to my blog – but then they leave because they didn’t find the answer. I thought since the search engines think I already have it on my site, perhaps I should.   Below is a sampling of the search queries (that I can decipher from cryptic keyword searches) that my website supposedly already has the answers for.
