Changes in Technology

It’s amazing to look back at how technology has changed over the past few years. Just a few years ago, the new thing was day-by-day coverage of the National Quartet Convention. Written summaries were novel.

Two or three years ago, digital camera technology and upload bandwidth speeds had progressed to where daily updates of photos were feasible.

Last year was the first year when NQC offered a live video stream. Last year and this year, word is that it’s been riddled with technical glitches. This year, my video clip coverage here was (to my knowledge) the first time one of the most active Southern Gospel websites posted day-by-day video clips from the floor and Freedom Hall. While I know that the quality my little handheld camera produced wasn’t great for the Freedom Hall clips, it’s been a lot of fun being a little innovative.

So…what’s the next step forward? How can coverage be improved next year?
