Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the 1970s ENG “mini-cams” revolutionized TV news coverage. Now smaller, lighter, cheaper cameras are revolutionizing the video news gathering business again. Anyone with a cell phone and editing software can be a videojournalist. So, do we need to teach students how to use larger, more traditional video cameras anymore?
Moderator: G. Stuart Smith, Hofstra University
Panelists: Dale Cressman, Brigham Young University; Discusses his backpack journalism class in which students can use any camera they wish
Peg Achterman, University of Washington; Will TV stations and videographers be willing to switch to these new mini-mini-cams?
Gary Symons, President and CEO, VeriCorder Technology; The Global Mojo Project and VeriCorder’s iPhone enhancements allowing the phone to be used as a full-fledged videojournalism camera.
