A concert video with Convivium Musicum playing renaissance and early baroque music at Artisten, Gothenburg on April 25. Most pieces are of central, eastern European origin and Poland in particular.
Video recorded with a single Panasonic HDC-TM300 and sound from a Zoom H2. Camera set to spotlight with manual white balance and 50i recording mode.
Edited in Avisynth using digital zoom (from the HD original) to get virtual scene changes in SD.
I just checked how the Vimeo transcoding would work and audio really got much worse compared to the original. All crispness has turned into distorsion.
original WAV files (it's a four channel recording with only front mic's present in this version) slightly polished to even out the worst transients in CoolEdit.
Resampled within Avisynth to compensate for the H2 clock (48000/48006) to keep sync with the camera.
Raising soft parts by 3-4 dB and normalizing in Avisynth.
Encoded to 192 kbit mp3 with a Cyberlink encoder.
Vimeo transcoding involves decoding, resampling to 44.1 kHz (the video standard IS 48 kHz) and reencoding to flash video (AAC, I suppose) which would explain most of the audio degradation...
