IS Tech

Very interesting ... I refer to production values in 'Hashtag Islam' and elsewhere , but this looks closely at the actual tech: Yorck Beese, GNet, Shooting for 1080p Full HD – Assessing Islamic State’s Cameras

"This blog contribution analyses the technology Islamic State has used since the inception of the al-Furqan Media Foundation in 2007. This study, brief though it is, is made possible by a years-long scientific viewing practice of Islamic State videos that goes hand in hand with building an extensive jihadist propaganda video library dating back to 1986. Most of the videos mentioned below can (still) be found in the Zelin-corpus, on, and throughout rather obscure websites."
