Archivision is pleased to announce that we now take multiple, short HD video clips of each important site we document (where possible). The intent is to compliment our still photography with video where it can better show the space, landscape or site, or the relationship between various architectural spaces, including moving through the space where appropriate.
We are using the Sony HDR-XR200V with wide angle lens to capture truly amazing high quality video footage.
Each Archivision video clip begins with a title screen which gives the 1) name of the site; 2) location (city, country); 3) creation dates; 4) creator name; 5) date the video was made. Furthermore, we supply the full VRA Core 4 metadata with each file so you can attach full data in any online system just as with our still images (data to be made avaiable for download later this year).
NOTE: this is a sample of our compressed files (compressed in QuickTime using "save for web". You can change the .m4v to a .mov).
Base Collection: 44 / Module One: 2 / Module Two: 0 / Module Three: 10 / Module Four: 0 / Module Five: 1 / Module Six: 37 / Module Seven: 7
Your IT people will need to convert either our compressed or Full Frame .mov files into something your end users can use in PowerPoint and other slide show applications, for both Mac and PC users, as well as into flash or straming video for online systems.
Note: Not all DAPs (discovery, access and presentation software) currently support video. Ask your IT people before ordering and attempting to load video into any online system. We suggest where possible you take our compressed files and make them available on your secure server for download (with password) so your faculty / students can simply download them and use them in PowerPoint or other presentations until such time as video is accepted in your DAP. Your IT people can also set up streaming video for you (you will need a streaming server, or use progressive download) and use our HTML table as above. You can also hand them out in your image library on DVDs.
