PVC at NAB 2014 - Talking CION workflow with AJA

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.

PVC at NAB 2014 - Take a Tour of the FCPWORKS Suite

A PVC Exclusive

By Jeremiah Karpowicz | April 07, 2014

FCPWORKS has taken a different approach than many at NAB 2014. They’ve chosen to setup a demo suite off-site of the busy show floor so those curious about Final Cut Pro X and how they are integrating Apple’s NLE into a number of different workflows can have a much more quiet, personal demo. PVC took a tour of all the different stations set up by FCPWORKS that includes storage, digital asset management, and many different types of workflows. It was quite interesting to see the many different solutions from on-set logging via Lumberjack to the capture of 8 streams of live video with Softron to a very cool DIT station.
