HD Recording

We are delighted to announce that we have installed high-definition video recording capabilities across our focus group facilities in the US.  Researchers now have the option of recording qualitative studies in high-quality standard-definition or high-definition format. 

Enhanced Video Information

High definition is the new standard in video recordings.  HD combines increased scanning lines with a greater pixel count, producing recordings with a vast superiority in image quality over standard definition recordings.  Enhanced color, sharper images and more clarity in facial expression are immediately noticeable for more compelling video data. Schlesinger’s HD filming is at 1080i, allowing for download time to remain reasonable.

HD at every Schlesinger location in the US

Each Schlesinger location in the US offers high definition recording.  HD cameras are not in every studio so please request HD in advance to ensure we can book you into a studio with HD capability.

No additional costs for Your HD recording

At Schlesinger, we believe in investing in quality.  If you select HD recording over SD definition, there will be no additional costs for your high-definition option.

HD recording is immediately accessible

Your HD recordings are available immediately after the last qualitative session on a USB drive.  Alternatively or additionally, recordings can be uploaded (upon request) to our ftp site within 24 hours of the final session.

Enhanced high-definition video streaming

FocusVision now provides its high-definition video streaming service through Schlesinger’s in-house HD cameras, allowing for even better picture quality while streaming your qualitative sessions. (FocusVision HD streaming rates apply).

Going big?

For clients who may require and can accommodate production quality video, we can provide (with notice) uncompressed raw video files on a 4-terabyte hard drive.
