I expected more coverage by now

Not too many sites ready to post NAB info. I guess we have to be patient.

So why can't you go direct from camcorder to computer.

I guess they forgot that's what DV does.

Because the VariCam was never built with FireWire (FireWire 2 wasn't even invented then.) So therefore you have to buy a special FireWire 2card for a DVCPRO HD Deck.

Yes, the DMN home page is a bit disorganized, but there are always the component sites. The one I go to most often being http://www.digitalvideoediting.com. A touch less cluttered than Digital Media Net.

No successor to the xl1 in sight at NAB?

Oh, God! Why? Why?

Cheers, Peter

We've got plenty of people at NAB and we'll be posting stuff in specific forums other than just here. Like the Final Cut Pro HD announcement is mentioned in our Apple Editing page and so on.

Thanks,

Am I blind?

I haven't seen that many reports from NAB yet. Sounds like an uneventful show full of vaporware.

DigiRostrum "Ken Morse Edition" Released

DigiRostrum is a software rostrum camera. Using its intuitive keyframe controls you can track, zoom or rotate a virtual camera across high definition image files, and then render this movement as broadcast quality video.

We have designed this edition of DigiRostrum with Ken Morse, the UK's leading rostrum cameraman. It provides a set of tools that are versatile and powerful enough to meet the needs of demanding high-end users in television post-production, yet its interface is simple and easy to use, allowing even a casual user to quickly produce perfect results.

Since its recent release DigiRostrum is already being used by BBC Arts for all the rostrum work on a new 10 part series about photography and has been widely praised by its users:

"Congratulations on your superb DigiRostrum software. It's truly a delight to use. The ease of use and quality of motion offered by your software is far superior to any competing product." Bill Tondreau (2004 Oscar winner for motion control on Lord of the Rings)

DigiRostrum comes in HD, Pro and DV versions. You can download a demo from our website: www.lumidium.com

Looks like some of the DVinfo-ers were right: it takes 1.5 to 2 years after announcement to introduce a working prototype. Sony, Canon, etc. announced the partnership with JVC last August or September, so I was doubtful about anything. And the vaporware seems to back that up.

(Though I was excited about the possibilities of new cameras, then disappointed that it's a year or two off, then thrilled that my HD10 is still the only game in town, along with its brother, the HD1.)

NAB impressions

Hello all, just got back from NAB, I was in Vegas from Saturday til Tuesday, spent all of monday on the floor. Here are my impressions:

Awesome production! Alot of people spent a lot of money to impress the suits, and it showed how little what I do matters, the big money is in the News and TV Broadcasting equipment...I had a room at Bally's which was where most of the Sony people were.

Nothing from Canon, their booth was basically showing the XL1s and all of the attachments, lens, etc...

Panasonic had a large display, can't call it a booth, it was on a higher level and was HUGE! as was the Sony area. Most of the cam manufacturers had mock sets and lined the cams up so you could actually use the cameras and lens - awesome. I took a few pics, got one of the Dvx100a with the PS-technik and a 35mm lens on it.

Celebrities, steadicam had the founder of the steadicam there, Trish Meyer was onsite giving a discussion on what she did for the Cold Mountain movie, Scott Kelby was giving a photoshop lecture for nonlinear editors...

Almost spent my whole day at the Adobe venue, the Masterclasses were great, the new versions have answered all of my issues and finally support 24PA...can't wait to get my hands on the new versions, got about 10 copies of the demos....

Walked into the center hall and the Apple area was outrageous! Overwhelmingly huge....the 'arena' was completely filled for every showing of Final Cut pro, Shake, and Motion....they were next to Discreet and it was small compared to Apple...

B&H was there handing out 'show specials' catalogs, and I checked and it didn't seem like 'special pricing'...but they did have every hot piece of hardware so you could try it out...

Nothing was free, the food, the water, drinks cost a lot, and the lines for each was long...

Sony was touting XDCAM everywhere, Panasonic did the same for P2...
There were a hundred companies that I never heard of, but they had large displays and crowds, the business of broadcasting is broad and far reaching...many of the demos at the Adobe Masterclass had Asian and Dutch dialog for both Audition, and PremierePro....

There was this guy sell for $179 and 5inch LCD camera that had a remote transmitter and ran off of a 9 volt battery, definitely got his brochure, didn't wanna spend the cash right there but it was still cool technology...its the same product someone here used and referred to on ebay I think....

Oh, the Vegas booth was small in comparison to Adobe, and puny in comparison to the Apple monolith...but the product demos were really good and awesome!

The Maya announcement for v6 was good too.

Overall, vegas was crazy, the show overwhelming and too much to handle in 1 day!

Is that all from NAB?

I am always hearing
"wait until NAB"
"wait until NAB"
"wait until NAB"
"wait until NAB"

OK, I waited, I haven't heard anything "that" new or exciting.

Long time videographers, has this year been disapointing compared to other years at NAB?

Is there another show we should be waiting for to see some technology advancements?

Thanks,
Mark
