It's a New Era

J. Scott IversonOut­side work, I hang around with a bunch of guys who call our­selves "Ras­cals and Gee­zers."  All of us, in one way or an­other, come from the world of broad­cast tele­vision (noted for its pleth­ora of the former).  At this point in life, how­ever, I'm afraid that the scales have tipped consi­derably a­way from our Ras­cal-izing and toward the Gee­zer side of the equa­tion: kind of like broad­cast tele­vision it­self, more's the pity.

More or less to­gether, we've watched the years go by with their inevi­table changes.  When we got into the busi­ness, most news stor­ies were ed­ited on op­tical film and played on-air via some­thing called a "film chain," which was a station­ary video cam­era fo­cused into a multi­plex of pro­jectors that pro­jected images onto a set of mir­rors and into the video cam­era.  Most video was recor­ded on video­tape that was two inches wide.  A one-hour reel of two-inch video­tape weighed a ton - even to us Young Bucks.  Today, of course, the con­cept of drag­ging a piece of tape over a rota­ting recor­ding or play­back "head" to create or dis­play a moving pic­ture seems quaint at the very least.
