Los Angeles, CA — January 08, 2014: FCPWORKS, an integrator of Apple hardware and software post-production solutions, today announced a special live event showcasing the latest version of the Final Cut Pro X editing software and the new Mac Pro in action at Unici Casa in Los Angeles on January 25th, 2014.
FCPWORKS Workflow Architect Sam Mestman has over a decade of experience working with Final Cut Pro and will be a featured presenter during the event. As a post-production supervisor and workflow consultant, Mestman has worked on several multimillion dollar productions in Hollywood. “Right now, the post-production world is in a state of massive technological change,” said Mestman. “Managing change is a professional editor’s business and those who can manage change best are more likely to enjoy the greatest longevity in our industry.”
The event, the first of its kind for 2014, will include 4K workflow presentations from a variety of post-production experts from AJA, Blackmagic Design, Softron, and Quantum plus a demonstration from Apple showcasing the latest updates to Final Cut Pro X and its native support for the dual GPUs of the new Mac Pro.
“AJA Video Systems has been a faithful partner for Final Cut Pro users from the earliest support through digital I/O cards for professional editing through the new Io 4K for Thunderbolt 2 with capture, playback and output of signals all the way up to 4K using the new Mac Pro,” said Bryce Button, Product Marketing Manager at AJA. “FCPWORKS has personnel with deep historical experience building out the most capable systems for Final Cut Pro X.”
The special FCPWORKS event on January 25th will feature a comprehensive workflow for editors and post-production pros looking to make the leap forward into the world of 4K real-time post-production using Final Cut Pro X.
