NAB 2012: Apple and Final Cut Pro X

Apple has meeting offsite but their products had a huge presence on the show floor.

By Scott Simmons | April 25, 2012

Apple didn’t have a booth at the 2012 NAB show, and no one expected them to. Even though no one was surprised they weren’t there a lot of folks commented that they thought it would’ve been more appropriate than ever given that Apple now has a shipping version of Final Cut Pro X. But Apple’s presence was felt all over the show floor with tons of Apple products on display. They were even having on the record meetings off the show floor and I was lucky enough to be invited to one of them.

NAB 2012: Lightworks

NAB 2012: Lightworks

And don't forget about the little red shark

By Scott Simmons | April 24, 2012

One company that I wanted to be sure and check out at this year’s NAB was EditShare see how they’re coming with Lightworks. I don’t have a Windows machine so I haven’t been able to download it. Their Mac version has fallen behind schedule but they were showing a Linux version running on a laptop at their booth. The official Lightworks release is scheduled for May 28. It’s been many years since I’ve seen a Lightworks running in the real world but I remember them fondly. In fact a Lightworks was one of the first machines I ever assisted on back before I had ever really used an Avid. I’m happy to report the shark is still there.

NAB 2012: Quantel new Pablo and Neo Nano

One of the high-end finishing, color grading and DI stations goes software only with a second panel option.

By Scott Simmons | April 23, 2012

If you’re lucky enough to work in the rarified air that is Quantel then you’re probably well aware of all their product offerings. If you’re not then it’s worth noting that Quantel has entered into the “lower cost” post-production arena by introducing lower cost versions of some of their hardware and software, including a software only option for their flagship Pablo product. Of course “lower cost” is a relative term and the mid-five-figures might be lower cost to some an not to others. Read More

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.

Larry Jordan, Daryn Okada, and Allan T©pper join Leo Laporte and Alex Lindsay on MacBreak Weekly

By Allan Tépper | April 19, 2012

At NAB 2012, I was honored to be invited by Leo Laporte to participate together with Larry Jordan, Daryn Okada and Alex Lindsay on MacBreak Weekly. This episode 295 was streamed live from the Las Vegas Convention Center on Tuesday, April 17 2012 and is now available for immediate streaming or download. We discuss many of the new developments at NAB 2012, in general and with respect to the Mac. 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.

NAB 2012:  Eizo 4K Monitor

You are going to have to look at your 4K footage on *something.*

By Bruce A Johnson | April 18, 2012

At NAB 2012, when you see a crowd of people clotted around a small booth, it's a sign you should pay attention. The Eizo full 4K monitor I found there was easily one of the most beautiful I saw all week, with a price tag to match. Also: A belated "Thanks!" to my colleague Erik Higgs for letting me edit on his laptop while in Vegas. Read More

NAB 2012: Maybe this means nothing.

NAB 2012: Maybe this means nothing.

Maybe it does.

By Bruce A Johnson | April 16, 2012

Anyone that has attended NAB in the past decade knows that major booth positions change very rarely, either in position or in size. For example, it was a big deal when Sony moved a few years back from dominating the Upper South Hall entrance area to a space near the rear of the Central Hall. And for as long as I can remember, Panasonic has lorded over the Central Hall floor from an elevated position in the middle of the hall.However...This year, those scrappy kids from GoPro have eaten away at almost *half* of Panasonic's space on that tier. It is a stunning sight to see. And in combination with Sony's underwhelming press conference on Sunday, it's hard for a broadcaster to feel too comfortable at this point. Are tectonic shifts afoot?

Autodesk Smoke 2013: it really changed for the better

Autodesk Smoke 2013: it really changed for the better

And at a new lower price of $3,495 it'll find its way into a lot more edit suites

By Scott Simmons | April 16, 2012

Autodesk has been saying for quite a few weeks now that Smoke is changing and they were right. What was previously a very high-end, very expensive, somewhat inaccessible piece of post-production software is now a very high-end, much more affordable (though still expensive for many) and more approachable piece of post-production software. The biggest news of all is that Smoke for Mac has gone from $15,000 down to $3,495. The second bit of news is that it should be a lot easier for editors to use.

NAB 2012:  Sony Press Conference

Memories of things past.......

By Bruce A Johnson | April 16, 2012

Alec Shapiro hosting the 2012 Sony Press event. Sorry about the poor picture, but that's a cellphone for ya.

The annual Sony NAB press conference was held at Las Vegas' Hard Rock Hotel, with a setting that seemed to be a bit less grandiose than previous years. Perhaps this is fitting considering that Sony recently announced as many as 10,000 layoffs coming in the near future. But even without that hanging over the festivities, the announcements made by Senior Vice President for Broadcast & Production Systems Alec Shapiro were less than stellar, and at times even seemed pretty out of touch, at least to an old broadcast hand like me. The overarching theme was "Believe Beyond HD," and near the end of the presentation the spectre of 4K acquisition did rear it's head. However, the first three items presented were not 4K productions, but 3D. Clips from the upcoming programs "Stormsurfers" and hip-hop competition "Battle Of The Year" were projected on a mid-sized screen, but oddly, even with the provided RealD glasses neither clip looked very 3D at all. (And seeing one of the "Stormsurfers" surfers very obviously holding a GoPro camera on the end of a stick suggests, at least, that not *all* of the footage was shot on Sony cameras.) Shapiro opined that 3D was growing by leaps and bounds, but at least in the home TV market, the just isn't true, and might well be a big part of Sony's current financial malaise. The third 3D production mentioned was ESPN's coverage of the X Games, but oddly, no clips were played - and I would REALLY have liked to seen those. Read More
