Many kinds of new technology that do not necessarily relate to post-production appear almost daily. We like to keep abreast of new trends as they develop to continue to be considered a forward-thinking company. Technology helps us to find new markets as they open up in which video certainly will play an important role. Video is one of the best ways to show new technology. After all, if no one knows about the technology or how to use it, what good is it?

Keeping up with the changes in the world in which we live is important for our future no matter what our chosen profession. This technology section promises to bring the latest and most innovative advancements that we believe will have an important role in our changing lifestyles. We will also bring to you those innovations that some may consider as gimmicks because they too can help to open the discovery process. Every new idea whether popular or not has a role to play in how we perceive ourselves as a culture and inspires other with new ideas and inventions. Ideas are key to creativity, and post-production needs creativity to work. We hope the articles presented here will inspire you to call on creativity that you did not think you had, allowing you to dig deeper into yourself. Ideas are limitless and sometimes seem impossible until someone is brave enough to realize there are no boundaries when it comes to innovation and the possibilities are endless.
