iLoud: a multifaceted powered speaker that impresses

Use iLoud for playback during music video production, to present live, or during editing.

By Allan Tépper | September 15, 2014

After i recently reviewed two other products from IK Multimedia, the iRig Pro preamp/A>D converter and the iRig Mic HD, they graciously sent me their iLoud, a rechargeable stereo powered speaker that impressed me quite a bit. Although IK Multimedia markets the iLoud for musicians, I immediately saw several other applications for our ProVideo Coalition readers, including playback for a music video production, to present live, or even to monitor when editing audio or video, with the usual disclaimer for the last one. Ahead are the details.

EOS 7D Mark II: the Baby EOS-1D X

broadcast canon stm cinematography lenses pancake storage videography

The EOS 7D MK II is not 4K, but does 1080p at 60fps, offers MOV or MP4 and compression algorithms (IBP, ALL-I, Light IPB).

By Jose Antunes | September 15, 2014

Although many are moaning about the EOS 7D Mark II missing important things - to them - the fact is that the new camera is a baby 1DX or 5D Mark III. Canon, again, goes for stability instead of folklore. And extends video options, along with photographic capacities that justify the 5 year wait for a new camera.

Nikon, on the other end, goes for a full frame sensor at 24MP on their D750 that follows the path the D810 showed in terms of video.
