Swarm Recording 2017-05-23 09:11:08 Swarm Recording Ever hear of this?Swarm Recording - the process of using a number of synchronized cameras and/or microphones to record an event. Nothing to do with bees, except of course if they are a logical part of the event. ;-)For example, the better modern cell phones contain pretty fair still/video cameras and microphones. The microphones may be more limited, but high quality bypasses of them are possible.AFAIK if the cell phones are all on the cell system, or running off of a common WiFi Hotspot, they are automatically time synchronized with each other. Precisely!Basically you have a bunch of cell phones that are each pointed at one of the various people that are involved in an event, or at least the most important ones or at least the overall event from as many angles as desired or possible. You set them up to record video as desired and press the start buttons. You run the event. When the event is over, you download all the videos and/or audio tracks and edit them into a usual multi-camera and/or multiple microphone recording.The way this is economical is that you can now get really pretty good used cell phones for about $100 each. Not a bad price for a mic and a video camera. If you synchronize them to a WiFi Hotspot they don't need SIM cards. BTW, VOIP still works on them, even without SIM cards. They work like small WiFi Android tablets. In terms of local storage, they can be expanded up to the uSD capacity of the phone, which may be 128 GB.
