HD-on-DV Standard reached

Hi all,

according to Heise (the publisher of the german C't computer magazine), Canon, Sharp, Sony and Victor have agreed on a standard for recording HD material on standard DV tape cartridges. The standard is called HDV and will record MPEG2 format. Included in the standard are 720p at 25, 30, 50 and 60 fps progressive and interlaced as well 1080x1440i at 50 and 60 fps.

This is important news as it may mean that material acquired on one device will be readable on the others, as well as having a common base for NLE's to work towards.

Read the full story at http://www.heise.de/newsticker/data/nij-08.07.03-000/

Kai.

Guess you missed the main entrance roll-up barrier which came crashing down around 2:45pm. Luckily no one was hurt. It looked rather odd, all bent out of shape. I went to grab my camera from the booth, but they had it fixed by the time I got back. Nice shots of Kolb, Downey, BAJ and that Canon dude. Good to see you today,

More about HDV coalition

http://neasia.nikkeibp.com/wcs/leaf?...bt/news/256509

Interesting things start toward the end of the article: 720p sub-standard is pushed mostly by JVC, while others defined 1080i one.
As far as I can understand this is the same standard as in Blue-Ray disk recorders.
Interesting time is ahead, I must say!

I'd rather position Cool Edit as a (multitrack) waveform audio
editor and manipulator. Seeing that they taut that the new
Premiere Pro has enhanced audio capabilities I would not be
surprised if some of that came from Cool Edit parts.....

DV Expo: Manufacturer for camera stabilizers?

Hi,

Does anyone know/remember which company was selling camera stabilizers at the DV Expo East? They were close to the Matrox and Bogen booths. On the center aisle.

DV Expo Exhibitor Listing

And it was great to meet Chris Hurd in person!

Thanks in advance.

Nice to meet you too! The exhibitor in question is Gary Tull of Hollywood Lite. Hope this helps,

Aha. I saw that too, but technically it's a shoulder support, which is a different animal from the steadicam-style Hollywood Lite that Michael's referring to. This A-B shoulder support is quite functional and stylish, well worth looking into.

thats exactly it...

its by no way as diverse as soundforge thou.. and i dont know ANY music studios using Cool edit for Pro work either, so i dont know where they get the idea that this app is "pro" as from what i have seen of it, its more of a midrange hobbyists application.
Its not bad, but its not the best...
mind you Pinnacle will have steinberg's wavelab, Sonic Foundry have Soundforge, and obviously Adobe need to compete somehow and this seems to be it......

Canon CMOS production

An article on DP review cited,

"In an interesting article posted today in the Japanese Nikkei, Canon is to invest 6 billion Yen (approx. $50 million) to install a new production line at its Ayase facility (Kanagawa, west Tokyo). This investment will apparently double product capacity of CMOS sensors for digital SLR cameras. This is interesting in that it confirms Canon's commitment to the use of CMOS in current and future digital SLR's.

The company will invest about 6 billion yen to install a new line that can process 8-inch wafers at its Ayase facility in Kanagawa Prefecture. Canon did not reveal the scale of its CMOS production, but said the new line would double the firm's production capacity when it begins operating early next year".

Even more interesting question is why they produce it in-house. One of the beauties of CMOS technology is that there is a plenty of foundries offering this process. These foundries know how to mass produce it. On the other hand, Canon is not a reknown semiconductor manufacturer. I bet the cost of their in-house production is much higher than one in dedicated foundry. So why don't they ask somebody experienced to manufacture their sensors?
