welcome PipeManMusic!
20:09
se6astian1
hey there!
20:24
PipeManMusic
I've checked into this project from time to time.
20:24
PipeManMusic
Just doing another checkup to see how things are going.
20:30
Bertl
and? what's the result? :)
20:30
PipeManMusic
Well, I had a hard time gleaning enough from the website so I came here.
20:30
PipeManMusic
I see the prototype.
20:31
Bertl
okay, good start ... anything you want to know in more detail?
20:31
PipeManMusic
The all important when and how much. :)
20:31
PipeManMusic
I'm sure the two hardest to answer.
20:32
Bertl
I think the how much is not that important ... we don't want to compete with low price discounter and companies trying to fill the market with cheap gadgets
20:33
Bertl
we will have solutions for a small budget as well as for a high budget
20:33
PipeManMusic
Sure.
20:33
Bertl
(this comes with the modularity)
20:33
PipeManMusic
I understand.
20:33
Bertl
for the when, it really depends on what you want
20:33
PipeManMusic
I was more wondering ballpark range.
20:34
Bertl
our goal is still well below 10k USD
20:34
Bertl
(for the 4k version that is)
20:34
PipeManMusic
For the complete setup?
20:34
PipeManMusic
Or the base camera?
20:34
Bertl
base camera, we'll see what it will include
20:34
Bertl
the 'complete setup' is open ended
20:35
PipeManMusic
Sure.
20:35
PipeManMusic
I'm not a professional film maker.
20:35
PipeManMusic
I a guy with a ton of stuff to film.
20:36
PipeManMusic
And a lover of FLOSS both hardware and software.
20:36
Bertl
so maybe you will be happy with 2k instead of 4k
20:36
PipeManMusic
Yes.
20:36
Bertl
which probably will reduce the price significantly
20:36
PipeManMusic
OK.
20:37
Bertl
the sensor we are currently using alone costs almost 2k USD
20:37
PipeManMusic
I actually come from the audio world.
20:37
Bertl
and there are other sensors for way less with reasonable quality
20:37
Bertl
so maybe you are interested in contributing on audio then?
20:38
PipeManMusic
Yes.
20:38
PipeManMusic
I'm very limited on time.
20:38
PipeManMusic
But I'm always willing to contribute what I can.
20:38
Bertl
well, if your contributions are valuable then small ones can make a big difference
20:38
PipeManMusic
:)
20:39
Bertl
for us, audio currently is a 'module we will look at later'
20:39
PipeManMusic
Sure.
20:39
PipeManMusic
Are you still running a linux core?
20:39
Bertl
yes, the axiom alpha is running linux
20:39
PipeManMusic
That simplifies things.
20:40
Bertl
indeed, most of our setup is done by shell scripts :)
20:41
PipeManMusic
Have you guys set a goal for the audio module.
20:41
PipeManMusic
?
20:42
Bertl
not yet, we didn't even consider what it should do or what interfaces are required
20:42
Bertl
but it would be a good idea to add something to the wiki about that or post on the mailing list
20:42
PipeManMusic
Well, on the one hand, you could just provide a usb 2.0 port and call it good honestly.
20:43
PipeManMusic
That isn't all that great for people looking for a traditional workflow though.
20:44
Bertl
I'm not so much a fan of usb and usb audio/video, mostly because the protocol itself is not very realtime and having proper sync and/or moving stuff around is complicated
20:44
Bertl
so something like a synchronized i2s bus or similar sounds much more appropriate ... but that's just handwaving
20:45
PipeManMusic
Well, a fist step could just be outputing a timecode that alows audio to be synce in post production.
20:45
PipeManMusic
And not handeling audio on the camera at all.
20:45
Bertl
yes, that's the plan
20:46
Bertl
(for the first step)
20:46
PipeManMusic
To be honest that is likely all I'd need personally.
20:46
PipeManMusic
I have tons of audio gear.
20:47
Bertl
the nick 'sounds' like that :)
20:51
PipeManMusic
Heh, I was the host of "The Open Source Musician Podcast" for many years.
20:51
PipeManMusic
I've been a musician for 20+ years.
20:52
PipeManMusic
And a contributior to the Ardour project for a very long time.
20:52
Bertl
nice!

Hey Bertl, how are you?
21:09
Bertl
fine, thanks! and you?
21:09
sasha_c
I'm well too, getting ready to go to work though...
21:11
Bertl
that sounds like you don't want to actually go to work :)
21:12
sasha_c
perhaps. This is one of the busiest times of the year at work (week 3 of Semester 1), where things can get a bit stressful
21:19
Bertl
I see
21:21
sasha_c
There's just this immense workload and not enough people in my team to be able to handle it all
