macvideo_expo_2011_Oct

Two reasons for posting this article. The first is to publicise the upcoming MacVideo Expo next week in London on the 18th. The second is to remind you that you can get a free listing for your event in our community section, it will even appear on our front page!

What a superb idea. Compile into a database all the common error codes you'll likely to come across on Mac based video editing software. Then wrap it all up into a searchable iPhone & iPad app for $1.99.

gopro_48_camera_array_surfing

Wow is all we can say. 48 GoPro cameras all running in an array filming a surfer at sea, you know it's going to be impressive.

Now that the interoperability between Final Cut Pro X and Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve has been announced, we are sure many editors are going to be looking at this combination to grade their projects. Patrick Inhofer takes us on a 2 hour Resolve catch up course.

automatic_duck_adobe

The news yesterday that Wes Plate from Automatic Duck was moving to Adobe flashed around the internet pretty quickly. Is this good or bad news for Final Cut Pro X?

HDWarrior_ibc2011_part2

Philip Johnston presents part two of his review of IBC 2011. What was his highlight of the show, the JVC 4K camera or the 8K Super High Vision demo?

promax_storage_webinar

With Apple announcing support for shared storage this week for FCPX, ProMAX have timed this free webinar rather well.

We thought there would be more camera crews touring the show floor at IBC this year, but we only counted a few. Good job Philip Johnston aka the HDWarrior was there shooting his summaries.

caldigit_thunderexpress

CalDigit have announced their ThunderExpress PCIe adaptor, their first Thunderbolt product. This unit allows you to connect one of their three PCIe RAIDs to any Mac, Windows or Linux machine that has a Thunderbolt port.

g-raid_thunderbolt

We can't believe we read a tweet this morning saying that there weren't any new Thunderbolt products on display at IBC. Maybe they didn't go past the G-Technology stand and catch sight of this 8TB monster prototype.

blackmagic_intensity_extreme

The newly announced Thunderbolted Intensity Extreme from Blackmagic Design is targeted at professional videographers. Small, bus powered with HDMI in & out, it will retail for €209.

matrox_thunderbolt

Matrox have taken a different approach to Thunderbolt connectivity with their I/O products compared to other manufacturers. Instead of building new models with Thunderbolt connectors, the adaptor allows new and existing products to use the superfast technology.

AJA_IOXT

We think we'll look back and see the introduction of Thunderbolt as a bit of a watershed. Today AJA Video Systems announced the io XT, a portable I/O video 7 audio capture box. We sat down with Tony Cacciarelli who took us through all the new products and updates for IBC 2011.
