Are you stuck with too much footage? It can be impractical to try and remember exactly where each shot is on each tape, what the conditions were, and any additional information that may be important to that shot. Don’t worry, Word Wizards now offers video logging services to help you manage your footage libraries. Allow us to provide a customized log of all your shots, designed specifically to meet your post-production needs. Video logging in conjunction with traditional transcription provides a powerful advantage to your team, and allows you to save valuable time and resources.

Eliminate Hassles with IVL
We take some of the drudgery out of video post production with Interactive Video Logging services (IVL.) Let Word Wizards, Inc.transcribe, log, organize, and index your footage with our cutting edge IVL service package. Our team will provide superior quality transcripts with time code and accurate shot descriptions with industry leading turnaround. Your transcripts and b-roll logs will be completely searchable and synced to the video. With IVL, the editor receives fully populated clip bins in Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro 7 (FCP 7) to jump start the editing process. Save your editor from having to organize and catalog footage that has been piling up for years without being properly archived. Having a searchable transcript and accurate metadata synced to the video allows an editor to work faster and more efficiently.
How is IVL unique?
One of the innovative benefits of IVL by Word Wizards, Inc. is a customized QuickTime movie of your footage that includes a searchable version of the log or transcript synced to the video. With zero editing experience, anyone can use this QuickTime file to create a rough-edit to tell their story their way. Access to fully searchable metadata is available to anyone, anytime, using QuickTime Pro.
Why does IVL provide an advantage to the editing team?
IVL QuickTime files by Word Wizards are highly compressed so that they can be emailed directly to anyone in the creative loop. This will virtually eliminate down time caused by the need for physical delivery of DVDs with burned-in time code from the editor to everyone else for review. With IVL, you can avoid the painful process of jotting down lists of time codes to identify illusive sound-bytes and shot descriptions.
