At the heart of the Kelly Thomas murder case is a grainy black-and-white video that covers, almost in its entirety, the struggle between the homeless man and police officers at a bustling Fullerton bus depot on a summer night in 2011. As jurors in Orange County now deliberate the fate of the officers, they must determine what that video actually shows. Prosecutors say the tape clearly presents a confused and vulnerable Thomas who died because one bully cop picked a fight and another lost control and slammed Thomas in the face repeatedly with his stun gun. In the defense's telling, the video captures a violent and errant street person who gave police the fight of their lives.

"What transpires in the court room is public property. " Writing those words in 1947, the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed a principle so intrinsic to our national character that it predates the Declaration of Independence. America's founders believed that justice was facilitated by openness. In 1774, the first Continental Congress specifically stated that trials should occur "in open court, before as many of the people as choose to attend. " Their reasoning was that public openness would ensure the honesty of judges, witnesses and jurors, who could not "injure [the defendant]

The surveillance footage shows the man--identified as 46-year-old Porfirio Santos-Lopez--appearing to punch at officers before he falls to the ground, apparently after being Tasered.

Microsoft has given up its quest to sell millions of set-top boxes that connect TVs to the Internet. Its new goal is to sell millions of set-top boxes that can digitally record two channels simultaneously, pause and rewind a show as it's being broadcast, instantly replay any scene, provide an interactive program guide . . . and incidentally, connect a TV to the Internet.

Two companies, TiVo and ReplayTV, are out with similar but not identical products generically known as "personal video recorders." These are nifty devices that allow you to pause, rewind and fast-forward broadcast and cable shows as though you were watching a videotape. They work by recording the TV signal onto a hard disk just like the one inside your computer and spooling it onto the screen with a couple of milliseconds' delay.

Doctors increasingly treat people using tiny cameras, and some patient-safety experts are urging physicians to hit the record button. Marty Makary, a surgeon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and author of a bestselling book on patient safety, said two examples of video recording show the potential benefits for both patients and doctors. At Indiana University, he said, researchers recorded 98 colonoscopies performed by seven gastroenterologists. They were unaware that they were being filmed and researchers found wide variations in quality.

Kobe Bryant wasn't at Staples Center for obvious reasons Sunday. But his prerecorded message to teammates hung in the air of the Lakers' locker room after their 91-86 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. It can't be printed here, the curse words definitely of the stronger variety, but Bryant's appeal was delivered Saturday by a 30-second video recorded on General Manager Mitch Kupchak's cellphone. Kupchak visited him earlier that day before Bryant underwent surgery for a torn left Achilles' tendon.

One of the most popular new shows of the fall television season is NBC's "Revolution," a drama about post-apocalyptic America. But the real revolution is how people are watching it. About 9.2 million viewers tuned in to a recent episode, a so-so performance. But that number jumped by nearly 5 million when the Nielsen ratings service added in the people who recorded the show and watched it later or saw it through video on demand or online. Full coverage: Television reviews "Revolution" isn't the only show whose popularity can no longer be measured solely by traditional TV ratings.

For some outdoor enthusiasts, the age-old question, "If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" has been replaced by "Did we actually have any fun on our rockin' mountain biking/kayaking/rock climbing adventure if we didn't get it on video?" Simple and rugged, wearable cameras have been proliferating on the market, recording video from a perch on one's helmet, chest or handlebars. Watching and editing is simple; just plug the units' USB cords into a computer to turn your high-adrenaline pursuits into home movies.

Think of it as a Christmas bonus. That's the way the Rev. Curtis Page is looking at the unusual accessory that came this week with a computer and videotape recorder delivered to his Kirk o' the Valley Presbyterian Church in Reseda. Page was happy enough to get the equipment, which was recovered by police after being stolen in an Oct. 29 break-in at the church. But the minister wasn't expecting also to be handed what could be the solution to the burglary.

I recorded my son's birth with a Kodak. No, not in 1997 or 1957. Just last week. It's even in high definition (but not 3-D, perhaps thankfully). I figured a new camera/video recorder would be just the thing for capturing those newborn moments, and I wanted to know if Kodak's new PlayTouch had enough "added value" to make it a useful substitute for, say, Apple's recently released iPod Touch, which has HD video capability. The PlayTouch also piqued our interest because Kodak and other camera makers have been losing ground to smart phones that are increasingly multifunctional and can take pictures as well as shoot videos.
