Who uses Neat Video?
Since it’s birth in 2005, Neat Video has helped
many different users to improve the quality of their videos. From high-level
professional producers to enthusiastic amateurs, Neat Video has been employed in
countless ways by a multitude of content creators. Here is a small snapshot of
the people who use Neat Video to achieve a better result.
Brides expect excellence, yet weddings are some
of the most difficult occasions to capture. Continuously changing conditions,
different locations and lots of rapid activity make this a pressurized shooting
environment. There are no second chances to film the bouquet toss and the last
thing you want to discover is an unusable shot in the edit. Neat Video offers
wedding videographers a level of security, allowing them to shoot with
confidence knowing it is possible to improve the occasional noisy clip in post.
Fashion shows, product launches, company parties,
religious ceremonies, sporting events, trade shows, music performances, circuses
and many more. People who shoot these events are often working with available
light in dimly-lit venues with spotlights and other effects that make it
difficult to avoid digital noise completely. Neat Video helps these creators to
clean up their shots while preserving the rich colors and vibrant lighting of
Advertising agencies produce a vast array of
content both for in-house and external purposes. From campaign case study videos
to street VOX pops for research presentations. From agency chemistry videos to
creative holiday messages to clients, agencies need to produce content that
showcases maximum creativity on a fixed budget. That means shooting on
less-than-stellar cameras and lenses and often without the best lights. Neat
Video helps these professionals to take their videos to the next level.
UAV pilots and Aerial Video Makers
Many amateur drone pilots are discovering the
joys of using their devices to capture stunning videos of their surroundings to
share with the community. In addition, many professionals are using UAVs to
amplify their creativity. Enabling them to capture incredibly unique shots that
would have been undreamed-of just a few years ago without a great deal of
expensive rigging and jibbing equipment. The drawback is the small action
cameras in use. While these cameras are constantly improving, they still suffer
from limited dynamic range, tiny sensors and poor low-light performance that
makes noisy clips inevitable. Neat Video offers a way to work around these
limitations and improve your breathtaking footage by cleaning up those
disappointing noisy spots.
Commercial and Corporate Video
Product explainer videos, industrial safety
videos, infomercials, conferences and seminars, investor videos and CEO messages
to staff. The ways in which the corporate world makes use of video is constantly
expanding. Often these productions are difficult to manage. You could be
shooting in a cramped factory, or you may only have 5 minutes to interview a
business head. What happens if you import your footage only to discover grainy,
unusable clips? It would be unthinkable to go back to the client or your
superior to request a reshoot, but there is Neat Video! With this highly
automated plug-in you can quickly transform your video into a product you can be
Producers of Online Video
Platforms like YouTube and Vimeo have opened up
an array of opportunities for brands and individuals alike. Small businesses now
make YouTube pre-roll ads to promote their products. Big name brands make web
series to attract attention to their particular brand lifestyle. Vloggers make
money from online views. Journalists create product reviews. However, the need
to produce a great deal of content for online release means production costs
must be kept to a minimum. This means cheaper cameras and of course, digital
noise! Neat Video helps these content creators by improving their video quality
for a fraction of the cost of high-end gear.
Real Estate Videographers
In the digital age residential and commercial
real estate agents are finding they need to produce higher quality content to
promote their properties to prospective buyers. Yet most do not have the budget
to hire professional videographers and top-shelf gear for every property. The
good news is that many agents that are inexperienced with a camera are still
able to employ an entry-level camcorder with automatic camera modes to produce a
good result. These customers use Neat Video to take their creations to the next
level by significantly improving the quality of this footage.
Documentary Film Makers
If you’re a “run-and-gun” documentary film maker
you know how tough it is to get the story in the can and capture beautiful
imagery at the same time. There’s just so much to think about. You’re
negotiating your way into restricted areas, following subjects, conducting
interviews in different environments and handling a camera at the same time. You
can’t always change to the right lens or spend 10 minutes setting up a tripod
and lights. The inevitable result is digital noise during an important moment.
With Neat Video you may not need to abandon that critical shot, offering you
more options in the edit to get your story across.
Even top-level broadcast professionals run into
digital noise from time to time. In fact, Neat Video’s customers include a
sizable number of broadcast news editors, magazine shows, reality TV shows,
episodic TV series and creators of many more kinds of content that you see on
your screen every day. The incredibly rigid quality standards in these
applications mean that digital noise is simply unacceptable. Neat Video is in
use every day by studios, TV stations and production companies to help them
adhere to their broadcast technical requirements. Which means there’s a good
chance that you’ve already seen Neat Video in action without even realizing it.
Other Uses: Underwater Video, Slow Mo, 3D
Animation, Digitized Film and VHS, etc.
There are many other scenarios in which Neat
Video helps to improve the quality of video – including some that you may not
have ever thought of. For example, vintage films and VHS tapes often suffer from
grain, dust and scratches and other artifacts. Once digitized, this can be
improved by Neat Video’s advanced noise reduction algorithm. Highly compressed
video can also be improved. Underwater video presents its own unique challenges
that lead to noise. Filming in high frame rates also sometimes results in
picture quality issues. You may be surprised at when and where content creators
are applying Neat Video. Even 3D animators use Neat Video to reduce unwanted
artifacts in the rendering of CGI sequences.
