VFI Video Furniture International manufactures high tech furniture for video conferencing, presentation and meeting room applications. They are taking an 80 inch LCD TV mounted on one of their video stands to Las Vegas for the infocomm trade show, and will be playing this video on it. It is amazing how much better HD looks on a huge screen.
The video will be encoded as an mp4 and played off a USB memory key. Much less effort to produce, and much less costly than bringing down, or worse, renting, an HD blu-ray player on site.
The video includes elements shot with a Sony NX5U and a Canon 5D II.

I had the opportunity to Interview photographer Arnaud Maggs, finalist for the 2012 Scotiabank Photography Award at the Susan Hobbs Gallery in Toronto. Maggs spoke from his "After Nadar" exhibition featuring images based on the 19th century French photographer's work .
Maggs dressed in his signature all black, was shot against the white gallery walls, resulting in an image that was not unlike some of Maggs' own portrait work. This shoot was lit with 2 LED panels.
Another Maggs interview is here on YouTube
