iPad video journalism comes of age at NAB 2012

By Allan Tépper | April 21, 2012

Ever since I saw the 3rd-generation iPad (2012), I began to have visions of its use for video journalism. Many of ProVideo Coalition magazine readers sent me private enthusiastic comments about my pre-NAB iPad articles like Avid now lets you edit video on your iPad for US$4.99. Should you?, Why an iPad is like a 4-5 view camera, and why you'll need a black "focusing cloth" and later part 1 of my review called 1st handheld dynamic microphones with hybrid XLR/USB/iPad connectivity from Audio Technica. While I was translating/localizing brochures for Avid Latin America just before NAB 2012, I became aware that they were going to launch iNews Command for iPad. On the NAB 2012 floor, I saw several iPad video journalists. Ahead you’ll find several photos, a few videos, and comments about various iPad video accessories.

NAB 2012: NewBlueFX Titler Pro

They call it "A Titler for the Professional Editor's Schedule."

By Scott Simmons | April 21, 2012

NewBlue, Inc. is a software developer that had a booth in the South Hall’s plug-in pavilion. They were showing their NewBlue Titler, a dedicated title creation and animation tool that resides in most all the major NLEs. It has a clean, simple interface that didn’t look like it breaks any new ground as far as design goes but that may be okay if you’ve got the need to create and animate your titles in a hurry … which many of us do.

NAB 2012: Technicolor CineLights from the GoPro booth

A simple, affordable color correction application for the GoPro crowd might be useful in other circles as well

By Scott Simmons | April 20, 2012

I wandered into GoPro’s rather large booth on Thursday morning as they had both a Porsche 911 and Ford GT40 on display with a ton of GoPros attached. An announcement late in the NAB week was that an update to the tiny GoPro cameras would finally give them 24 frames per second capability. It was also a surprise that none other than Technicolor was going to supply a flat cinema-style picture profile for a bit more dynamic range in your GoPro footage as a part of that firmware update. I was even more surprised to see Technicolor demoing a new color correction application called CineLights in the GoPro booth as well.

blackmagic blackmagic cinema camera cinemadng

NAB 2012 applause! Blackmagic’s cinema camera uses HFS+ formatting rather than weak FAT32

Thank you Blackmagic for using HFS+, balanced audio inputs, and standard códecs/file formats.

By Allan Tépper | April 19, 2012

As some of my colleagues at ProVideo Coalition magazine have already reported, at NAB 2012, Blackmagic announced its first digital motion picture camera, officially known as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. For US$2999, Blackmagic gives you the camera, a license of DaVinci Resolve (US$995 value) and a license of UltraScope (US$695 value). Supply your own Canon EF or Zeiss ZE lens and recording media. I applaud Blackmagic for making one of the two best possible decisions regarding the formatting used on the removable SSDs (solid state drives), and for using standard códecs/file formats. Unlike what many traditional photo and video camera manufacturers have chosen to implement (the weak FAT32), Blackmagic chose to use HFS+ (aka HFS Plus or Mac OS Extended). In this first look, I’ll review the differences and advantages of either HFS+ or UDF over FAT32, and point out some other details, i.e. the audio connections and file formats.

Alex Lindsay even comments about the potency of the coffee he allegedly consumed during his yet unconfirmed trip to the 24th century during the creation of a yet unannounced feature, as covered in a recent article here in ProVideo Coalition magazine. This episode of MacBreak Weekly has a duration of 1:41, calculated especially for fans of palindromes.
