This weeks interview is with ever popular Larry Callahan. Larry is the founder of Pro-Touring.com and Co-Host of the Pro-Touring Update. If you know Larry at all you’ll realize that he is incredible at adapting great technology into practical use.
He’s been producing really great multi-camera videos on Pro-Touring.com of his ’55 Chevy, so in this episode I asked him if he could walk us all through the process of doing it.
The conversation quickly turned into a full blown lesson of which systems work best, how to integrate in external microphones, where cameras should be placed, how to implement live-streaming, which software is best used for easy and slick post editing…and even how to integrate in a robot camera-man.
Check out the video of Larry pushing the 55 to it’s limits testing the new tires and old suspension. Note it is shot from multiple angles as well as showing a layout of the track and where on the track Larry is at that time. He noted that there is the possibility of recording a video for a driver and giving them a copy of it right there on the track.
Larry said he spent a lot of time checking out different systems and determined that Race-Keeper.com met his demands. The system has multiple ways to receive data and it records everything while you drive including vehicle OBD data, GPS information, and G forces on the vehicle. Since all of the data is saved you can play with it after driving and turn features on and off as you wish. Listen closely in the video for the other camera systems and editing software that Larry recommends.
Thanks Larry for the great interview and technology update Pro-Touring style!
Former TMCP Assistant Director is Getting Married!
I’m happy to share the news that Darren Johnson our former Assistant Director (of pretty much everything) is now engaged! I asked Darren on for a bit to share the good news – and also share what his time at TMCP influenced on him about cars.
Long story short: we’ll miss him dearly, but know the world is better with him out there leading it.
Congrats Darren and Rachel!
