Steps in recording
We use what is known as the Schreiber method for Video ITC. The
technique of connecting the output of a video camera to the input of a
television set, and then taping the video noise that can be seen on the
television screen, was apparently first developed for Schreiber by Martin
1. Preparing the Video Loop:
Position the camera about three feet in front of the television screen. Connect
the Video-Out of the Camera to Video-In of the television and select Video-In
on the television set. Aim the camera at the television set and slowly adjust
the focus, and zoom until the dark to light flashing is visible on the
television screen, with cloudy or foggy texture in various colors during the
bright flashes. The focus should be six to twelve inches past the surface of
the screen when the equipment is ready to record. The most important objective
is to see swirling clouds.
2. Preparing Yourself: Follow the same preparatory process
you use for EVP sessions. Remember that there are nonphysical entities who are
present and able to “witness” your activity. Consider using the same music each
time as a “signature” or “signpost,” indicating that preparation for a session
is underway. Also consider conducting a short meditation or prayer.
After meditation, we change from music to the background sound
that we use for EVP. The background sound of white noise is used because we
always listen to the video sound track. Also, an IC recorder is usually
recording during the sessions. This, of course, is optional. Speaking out loud,
we talk to our team about the last session and discuss the various successes or
failures of that experiment. Asking for their assistance in bringing the images
through, we announce that we are going to begin the experiment. This is all
done just as if they were standing in the room with us. Each session brings
different discussions and questions. Ask for information on how to improve the
experiments, and for specific people to show themselves in the video.
The experimenter is part of the circuit and we feel that
meditation and/or prayer helps bring the experimenter into a more balanced
state. This helps to focus the experimenter’s intention and better helps those
on the other side create a link to the experimenter.
3. Conducting the Experiment: Speaking out loud, tell the
entities that you are about to begin recording. State what you wish to see in
your video frames, and perhaps, offer feedback about the previous experiment.
Turn on the equipment and wait a few seconds for the feedback loop to
stabilize. Record for about thirty seconds. You may record longer, but remember
that the camera will record around twenty-nine frames a second, and that thirty
seconds represents a large number of frames. Turn off the video camera and
verbally thank the entities for their help.
4. Analysis of Video: Transfer the video onto a computer.
You can alternatively include the computer in the recording circuit during the
experiment and record the video with the computer rather than with the camera.
Once in the computer, examine each frame of the video and "grab"
frames that have optical texture, such as blotches of color. Examine each
grabbed frame in a photo editor as if it were a photograph. Use magnification,
intensity changes and rotations while looking for features.
