Doppler has just the right disposition for television. She is calm. She is content. She is quiet. She doesn’t shed!
I have some video at the bottom of this entry. How it got here is a story of how TV’s changed.
When I first got into TV we were just making the transition from film to videocassettes. Everything was recorded on physical media–tape.
While the newscast was still on I walked to my desk, opened a web browser and called up a small clip editor. I set the in-and-out points, hit a button and watched as the video was deposited on my desktop. Then I dragged the files to a flash drive I carry with my keys.
For some reason the video won’t play on my PC at home, but YouTube found it acceptable so I uploaded it there.
Now the video is universally available! That’s crazy. It exists in the cloud.
The cost of entry used to prohibit anyone but a large corporation from owning a video production facility. Nowadays you can do most of it on your phone!
