Welcome to AdamPressleyFilms.com! We’re very excited to launch the online home of Jacksonville’s premier wedding video production company.
This blog is your backstage pass to what’s going on at Adam Pressley Films. It’s our way of giving you a bit of industry insight and demonstrating our prowess in the field. Each blog post will provide specific information on an aspect of wedding videography you might never have considered. Your comments are always appreciated.
Today, we’d like to talk about high-definition (HD) technology, now a standard in wedding videography, as the majority of new TVs have high-definition displays. Hi-def technology aims to deliver the highest-quality video picture yet available to consumers by displaying physically smaller details in vivid color. There are two main facets to the production of a high-definition video.
The first probably sits in your living room. If you own an HDTV, it may boast a 720p, 1080i, or even 1080p display. The number in each of these designations refers to the resolution of the screen; the first is 1,280 by 720 pixels and the latter two are 1,920 by 1,080 pixels. The suffix “i” means interlaced because odd and even lines are split up and displayed in separate sets. It’s an older idea that came from cathode ray tube (CRT) televisions, and it can result in jaggedness when displaying fast motion. Alternately, “p” means progressive scan, which displays each frame all at once as a series of horizontal lines from top to bottom. Therefore, the optimal TV has a 1080p display, and manufacturers are making them in larger proportion every year.
The second part of the hi-def experience belongs to Adam Pressley Films—the HD digital video camera, designed to make the most of all two-million-plus pixels you see. Our videographers employ the Panasonic AG-HVX200, a state-of-the-art HD video camera, to capture each of the beautiful weddings we have the privilege to attend in stunning detail. The camera’s 16:9 widescreen lens captures wedding scenes in any of 13 resolutions and standard frame rates, plus variable frame rates for special fast- and slow-motion effects.
Most importantly, we have the expertise to use this technology to your advantage. It’s our goal at Adam Pressley Films to preserve the joy of your wedding day to the highest standards, and our equipment that lets us produce a high definition wedding videos plays a big part.
