My career spans an interesting time period. When I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with my degree in RTVMP (Radio, Television and Movie Production) it took an entire tractor trailer full of equipment to run a decent production and video cameras still used picture tubes. I had solid skills on all sides of this. My first camera was a DXC3000K Manufactured by Sony and was a first generation CCD (charge-coupled device)style camera and my footage looked much better than the network standard at that time. When computer editing came out in the early 90’s you got a virtual computer based program that mimicked the hardware I was used to using. This gave me an excellent point of reference to learn and master computer editing and video encoding standards.
