Live Switching Between Cameras In 4K

By Brian Hallett | April 16, 2014

One of the more interesting features found on Blackmagic's 4K Production Camera is the 6G-SDI out.  This means a single BNC cable can send out 4K video.  It may not seem like a great big deal to you, but the next time you have to run cable for a 4K live production you will be glad you are using a camera with a 6G-SDI output.

PVC at NAB 2014 - Talking CION workflow with AJA

blackmagic camera cameras edit mac monitor production video

As well as discussing some of their other NAB products

By Scott Simmons | April 13, 2014

AJA CION

While all the biggest news and coverage out of AJA came around their surprise CION camera I took my turn interviewing Bryce Button of AJA about a few things beyond the CION. I wanted to chat about another interesting surprise from AJA called the LUT-box. This unassuming $695 interface sits just outside of your viewing monitor in the signal chain and is designed to transform that signal with a 3D LUT. Yes some monitors can support a LUT so you wouldn’t need the device in those situations but there are many places where the LUT-box will be a great addition. Plus it’s the only box of this type designed for such a specific task.

We talk Open CL, CUDA, Adobe CUDA specific acceleration and using multiple GPUs.
