Edit anywhere – without the firewire drives…

With another IBC under the belt it was clear which direction the big names in non-linear editing are heading – towards the clouds! I’d heard a lot about Adobe Anywhere over the last 12 months or so, and have been fortunate to have seen some of it, too, but at IBC it was the first [...]

IBC 2012 Adobe Anywhere

Cloud based editing seems to be at the forefront of two of the biggest NLE companies at IBC, with Avid’s interplay Sphere and Adobe’s Anywhere. We managed to get a private demonstration of Anywhere and although it is not ready to ship and has no pricing structure it looks very appealing indeed. What we saw [...]

IBC 2012 Marquis Broadcast Project Parking

I have been looking forward to seeing this product for a while now and where best than IBC 2012. The idea of creating an archive folder of your Avid project and all of the media associated with it is simple, but before you would have to consolidate your media to a specific drive and then [...]

IBC2012 Media Composer 6.5 first look

Media Composer 6.5 is here and I thought I would share some new features here from IBC2012. Well, as you would expect there are no cosmetic differences but Avid have added a few new features that you would have expected to have been in Media Composer for years and some features that really show a [...]

A successful Olympics with an innovative and cost-effective workflow

I think it’s safe to say that this Olympics has been a success; London 2012 really did deliver. On top of Team GB’s great performance, the BBC also really delivered the content to those not fortunate enough to get tickets. The BBC had the power to draw the nation together and kicked off with the [...]

NAB, the smaller announcements!

There’s been quite a few announcements at this years NAB, some have been well reported (Blackmagic’s cinema camera, Smoke for $3,495 /£2,207 running on a MacBook etc) and some that haven’t. Maybe they’re aren’t as big but worth a mention… […]

NAB Roundup 2011

The NAB show is always a daunting and slightly bewildering experience. There is always an overwhelming amount on display, and one always has the sneaking feeling of potentially missing the next big thing tucked away in some some little stand somewhere. I wouldn’t say that the last point was unlikely this year, but NAB 2011 [...]
