It's the night before NAB which gives us the perfect reason to show these videos from the recent Editor's Lounge Pre-NAB Discussion Panel. Lots of speculation across the board and NLE manufacturers, comments include 'Avid is 'stodgy' and 'FCPX will win the race.' Interesting.
What's going to be the big news at NAB this year? The death of 3D and the rise of 4K? Things getting smaller faster and cheaper? Who knows?
At the recent Editor's Lounge, a panel of distinguished industry experts consisting of Terence Curren, Michael Kammes, Dan Lebental and Mark Raudonis look forward to NAB and beyond.
The interesting video is number three where they take a look at the major NLE manufacturers of Avid, Apple and Adobe. We were quite surprised when Mark Raudonis from Bunim Murray (Who ditched many FCP7 seats for Avid) not only called Avid 'stodgy' but he also said that FCPX might 'win the race.' We understand the video is edited, but it is curious when Adobe only get a minute's worth of time!
Don't forget our coverage of NAB will start on Monday morning where we will be tweeting live from the AJA breakfast press briefing and the Blackmagic Design briefing too.
