Our first experiences making films reach back 35 years ago. At that time, Super 8 was available. Rolls of film had to be developed and then cut and stuck. If you wanted to set to music, you had to record the sound separately on magnetic tape recorder and then apply it on a magnetic track. Price it was relatively expensive and the film could not be played on the TV, but only on canvas.
Later, the first recorder came on the market, which recorded on magnetic tape and the sound was recorded automatically. The analogous cut was carried out via cutting desks. First player for the television were available.
With the Hi8 and SVHS formats, the first PC based cutting systems entered the market. The company FAST offered capture-cards that digitized the analog signal and Adobe introduced the first versions of Adobe Premiere.
In 1995, Sony launched the DSR-VX1000 DV camera with the first MiniDV cassettes in the semi-professional range. This camera was a breakthrough in price and quality. For the first time, razor sharp videos could also be produced in 16: 9 formats. Smaller broadcasters used this camera for reportage.
Various formats such as DVCAM followed.
The Sony HDR FX1, this time a breakthrough for the high-density format appears in 2004. 1080 i with 25 fps (1440×1080 pixel).
However, it took three years before the first Blu-ray could be produced. Software vendors have taken their time. At the latest with the HDV format, it proved essential to film with a tripod to produce a smooth and high-quality picture on the television set.
The next quantum leap carried out 2013 in Japan and reached Europe in 2014; 4K captured the market. 4K corresponds 4x Full HD.
