Trust me, I know this group... if Guy and crew make it to Amsterdam, well, the whole thing comes to a stop and you couldn't make them leave that town for a week or two.

Guy,

I have been trading emails with Jim T. regarding your upcoming Houston event. We are looking forward to your group heading down to Texas. Look forward to meeting you if you make the trip.

Hi Ken,

I do indeed remember the Chicago workshop with you. Lot's o' fun at 10 South Wacker. I remember you were the one who also has done presentations and said not to drink too much coffee...

If you recall Day 1 of the DV Revolution Workshop is shooting, Day 2 Editing, Day 3 Delivery. Since anyone can take any single day of the workshop, we would have twice as many people on Day 1 as Day 2. Why you ask? Half of the attendees use a PC solution. Up until now, we could not find a powerful, reliable, yet inexpensive NLE on the PC side that could be on the same level as Final Cut Pro.
Well, now we have, and we are proud to be showing off - and hosting workshops on Edition DV. We still have the best Final Cut Pro workshops across the country, and now we have the best coast-to-coast PC workshops as well. This gives everyone a chance to join the Revolution at a killer price point and with professional tools to boot.

I look forward to seeing you all out there on the Free Tour.... and Rob... I really, really wish we were touring Europe!

FCP 3 vs. Avid Xpress DV....The Winner is....

Check out the review on http://www.digitalvideoediting.com/2002/09_sep/features/cw_fcp_vs_xdv_shootout.htm Very complete review by an experienced Avid editor. Unlike many reviews this one names a winner.

Jeff

For a change, this is a DMN article *not* written by Charlie White (ugh) but instead by Peter May (hooray).

Wow, that's quite an exhaustive and unique review. I don't think I've ever seen sluggish audio noted in any review of XDV.

Great review. I wish more reviews cold be this "hands on". I come from an Avid background and have been doing FCP since 1.0 and have the same feeling of being old whenever I go back to Avids. Theres a lot more "next generation EDL" connected to FCP.

Me too Guy.... workshops and such are almost nowhere to be
found around here. And if they are I am highly doubting them and
there quality (and price vs. quality for that matter). Oh well,
perhaps I can sometime attend a workshop in the US.

Thanks anyways for doing this and bringing it to our attention.

The World's first consumer HD cam!

JVC has announced a new cam. It is a hand-held, digital HD cam with 3, 1/3" CCDs. (It looks like a Sony PD100A, but brown in color). For a picture and the JVC link, go to the news section here:

From what I could decipher from the japanese text (my japanese
isn't that good -- ie, non existent)

- It will record DV and MPEG2
- Records the following resolutions:

720x480 or 720x525: interlaced, DV
720x480 or 720x525: progressive, MPEG2
1280x720 or 1280x750: progressive, MPEG2

All on miniDV tape? Probably will *NOT* be standards
compliant though. I hope they have a very good NLE
that can handle MPEG2 and that the MPEG2 is I-frame
only.

Anyone else found some interesting information on this?

JVC announced a few years ago their plans on making a new HD camera. They proposed (along with Panasonic) the DV100 spec.
720x1280 8bit 4:2:2 color at up to 60p. I think Pana got the jump on them with the veri cam, but didn't make it to the specs originally laid out. By the looks of the picture, they have a new, wider tape based system. If it works, I don't care if it's proprietary.

Most of us use the dv25 spec for mini-dv and DVCAM tapes. 8bit 4:1:1 NTSC 4:2:0 PAL

A step up is DV50 which is what D9 and DVCPRO50 comply with.
8bit 4:2:2 NTSC or PAL
This is the next thing they were talking about..


Nice thing is, DV100 still works within the the 400mb spec of 1394.

Its not going to affect what I buy in the next couple of weeks, but if it's any good, I'll get it in the future.

Well... what I understand from that japanese site it seems like
they are only using DV with their standard DV25 compliant
signal. Everything else seems to be using MPEG2 (stored on a
DV tape???)

We will see where it all goes.....

Okay Rob, I don't read japanese, so I'll take your word for it. I've emailed a query to JVC to find out more. If it's high quality i-frame only mpeg, that might be alright, but traditionally mpeg2 is not a great format to edit in.

Unfortunately, for me anyway, and I suspect for at least a few others, FCP isn't even in the picture because it's only available for the Mac, and I don't want to blow all my money on the hardware. I wish they would widen their horizons and port it to windows (I know, it will never happen!). In the meantime, I am using XDV3 and I like it a lot.
