Mike on the scene at NAB
Checkin' it all out
By Mike Curtis | April 12, 2008
Hey all - just a quick note to let you know I'll be at the NAB show - today is Saturday, and I'm just sitting down at the Digital Cinema Summit to take notes on...whatever they are going to talk about next.
I'll be bouncing between this and the Digital Tech Guru panels today/tomorrow, with maybe some DP panels as well - gotsta get me 5 minutes to see the schedules, work has been INSANELY busy this week (another post entirely).
Monday morning first thing I have an interview with Ted Schilowitz in the Red booth, and with anticipation of Scarlett ("professional, handheld camera"), 4K displays, 4K projectors, 4K distribution system, and a new Red reel I've been seeing pieces of for a few months, should be a helluva show.
I'll be abusing my access priviledges to get in bright and early...for your benefit.
I'm also, through work, going to be spending some time with the Codex and S.two booths, they should both have some very interesting announcements, and other stuff as well of course.
It'll be an interesting show with both Apple and Avid off the floor. I noticed Apple shipped Final Cut Server quietly last week, and Avid had some good announcements too.
UPDATE - aaaaaaand then work intervened. I took some demo footage over to the Band Pro booth, and Randy Wedick and Michael Bravin gave me a quickie look-see at the new Sony F35 camera. It is the Genesis sensor (striped CCD) 35mm sized, with a PL mount, on what is otherwise an F23 body. Better brains behind it, so some image enhancements in the circuitry. More later.
I also got a quickie looksee at the Angineux Rouge lens, I will HAFTA check me out that! Aimed at the Red camera crowd.
-mike, yet again
