There is Thunderbolt everywhere at IBC 2012 and we thought we would look at the storage vendors that are relevant to the Final Cut Pro market and catch up on new models, new capacities, new speeds and even a skydiver dropping a unit mid dive too.
Quite a refreshing break from the chat about which NLE talks to which NLE. Steenbeck proclaim they're alive and kicking so Rick Young caught up with them at IBC.
We were so pleased whilst watching this video of Gary Adcock from the recent IBC 2011 show in Amsterdam. Right from the off, he gets Final Cut Pro X and his 15 minutes is well worth a view.
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?
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.
Michael Wohl needs no introduction to us FCPers, but Dan Bérubé gave him an excellent one anyway. 30 minutes of Final Cut Pro X recorded at the recent Amsterdam SuperMeet.
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.
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.
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 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.
Sony launch XMPilot an iPad app that lets you log shots as you shoot for direct ingest into Final Cut Pro bins
