For online delivery and viewing on laptops/tablets, 720P should be sufficient for capturing the entire sheet in a legible way, but resolution isn't the only factor to consider... A 1080P camera would capture higher-resolution images, but a 1-hr lecture at that size would probably result in a file size around 1GB. Assuming the intended delivery is online, ...

Comparable yes but unlike Flash you have a very consistent average size over the timeline of your content. So you don't need to download as much to show content but can actually just start right away to play the video if your bandwidth is equal to (in practice it should be a bit higher of course) the average bitrate of your video. You only need to pre-load a ...

If it is a flash source, then there is a good chance it has vector elements. You should export at a higher resolution from the source rather than trying to upscale the mov file. Working from the original will ensure accurate pixel data for any vector elements and produce a much higher quality upscale. (This is actually one of the major reasons for ...

I would try and see if you can't reduce the bitrate a little more even, you have a very low resolution here so you might be able to improve it even further. Just take it to a point where you can say the quality is still satisfiable, size matters on the web. Handbrake has a lot of options available to tweak the video size. The RF slider being the most ...

Sure - it seems ok. However, it is also a good idea to offer other types of video for browsers that do not support mp4 / h264. The usual best practice involves supplying mp4, webm and ogg as containers. This site is a good reference. A back of the napkin calculation: 1000 viewers / month @ 7.4 MB = 7.4 GB / Month. Which is probably within the acceptable ...

It may be a backlight, or it may be an overhead light for use in getting the noir look. Either way, use of a softbox is fine. It would actually have a narrowing impact on the category of the light rather than a widening influence. The light itself in that kit radiates light in all directions, the inside edges of the soft box bounce that light forward, it ...

Is it normal to use a softbox for a back light? It can be sometimes. With two softbox lights, one can very nicely, evenly light a background show here. Note in the video that the subject is much farther than 2ft from the background. Wouldn't it leak light onto the wall behind the subject? Yes, it would, but not because it's a softbox. Softboxes only ...
