A PVC Exclusive

By Jeremiah Karpowicz | April 07, 2014

FCPWORKS has taken a different approach than many at NAB 2014. They’ve chosen to setup a demo suite off-site of the busy show floor so those curious about Final Cut Pro X and how they are integrating Apple’s NLE into a number of different workflows can have a much more quiet, personal demo. PVC took a tour of all the different stations set up by FCPWORKS that includes storage, digital asset management, and many different types of workflows. It was quite interesting to see the many different solutions from on-set logging via Lumberjack to the capture of 8 streams of live video with Softron to a very cool DIT station.

Sunday at NAB. Nice, quiet, productive.

Even with pre-NAB announcements it's one of the best NAB days

By Scott Simmons | April 06, 2014

Sunday at NAB can be an interesting time. The show floor hasn’t opened yet so you’re not constantly bombarded with new product announcements (though today seems to be an exception), people aren’t moving around like maniacs and the hallways of the Las Vegas Convention Center halls aren’t madhouses. As one of the speakers at Post|Production World I took advantage of my favorite perk: being able to sit in on some other classes and learn.
