It lives! The Talk-Now video demo redone.

I’ve been experimenting with video again, and made another video of the iotum Talk-Now preview. The last video I made was criticized for:

  • Being overly long. This one is nearly two minutes shorter.
  • Being hard to view because it was shaky. In this one, I clamped the Blackberry into a stand on my desktop, and mounted the camera on a tripod.
  • Poor color and lighting. This one is much better lit. Now, the lights I used are NOT photographic lights, but rather ordinary halogen shop lights that I bought at the local hardware store. This has resulted in a yellowish cast to the video, which I believe I could remove (at shooting time) by using the color balance features of the camea.
  • Poor sound. Rather than record a voice-over using the PC, as I did last time, I simply used the microphone on the camera. The sound quality is much better, even when turned away from the camera, as I was when shooting the demo sequences.

Hope you like it, and I hope you give Talk-Now a try.

The video is available on You-Tube , Google Video , Video.ca, and Revver .

    Well, I thought that this demo was very good. Easy to understand and a very clear demonstration of how it would benefit the end user. Great. Well Done.
