A PVC Exclusive

By Jeremiah Karpowicz | April 07, 2014

FCPWORKS has taken a different approach than many at NAB 2014.

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.
