If I were to guess (and this is a bit of guesswork), I don't think you need anything advanced. You've got me thinking how to do it with FCP 7 and it is just a combination of effects. Keyframing and shrinking the picture at the same speed as its surrounding frame is how I would do it. Plus I'd add a little camera movement in post.
To give you an idea what I am talking about, I'd look at 1:22 on the last interview I shot - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vED1...layer_embedded -it isn't exactly what you want because it's not in a specific frame. However, the overall effect is how I'd do it in FCP7.
It looks like a drag to get it right all the time and probably AE would do it better but you could do it in FCP7. If you can do it in FCP7, you can do it in Premier or Avid. The one proviso is I couldn't do the scene where the individual is walking away downstairs with the iPad - that would require AE.
I'm going to try it so watch this space.
