I've always been interested in video (probably stemming from my love of movies), but really in particular in the editing process. I guess you can say my "proverbial itch" was first scratched when I started to use iMovie. It then grew when I had the chance to mess w/ eZedia. From there I dabbled w/ Avid learning from the great Mr Pine; who in turn introduced me to Wirecast.
Wirecast is the ideal and affordable (if you consider $449.00 affordable) way to do professional quality webcasts/broadcasts in your school. Also, it is cross platform, very user friendly, and can handle HD, mutiple cameras, does backdrops w/ chroma-key, and titles/transitions on the fly. I used this to do morning announcements and have found it to be one of the greatest applications for video out there.
