Apple Press demo shows Thunderbolt and FCP running 4 streams of uncompressed HD on the 15" MBP peaking at 600MB/s
Wow! Two great bits of FCP news in two days. The new MacBook Pros that have been released today feature 'Thunderbolt' Apples branding of Light Peak technology from Intel.
There will be many products released soon that feature Thunderbolt, but LaCie has got in there first. Take a look at the tiny "Little Big Disk" 500GB of SSD.
A great video of Thunderbolt in action to finish off an interesting day. Apologies if the video above takes time to load, but hey that's Flash:)
It has been a few crazy days of Apple news and we've loved every leak, tweet and article that we have come across. However it is only now that we are coming to realise how massive the new announcements really are. Prepare for a shock...
***Updated with embedded event video***
So no news from Apple about Final Cut Pro at the iPad2 event. However Randy Ubillos who headed up the team that gave birth to Final Cut over 10 years ago, was on stage to talk about iMovie. Is there anything we can learn?
We knew that Intel had developed Light Peak with help from Apple. Then right at the last minute before the new MacBook Pros were announced, the name changed to Thunderbolt. Or did it? Guess who has applied to register the name as a trademark.
How huge? When Thunderbolt was released we had a chat with HD Warrior, the website that we read for breaking news on cameras. We said it was only a matter of time before camera companies jumped on this new technology. Find out what our chat predicted after the break as this little connector will change the industry again.
So we are going to leave the credit cards at home this NAB otherwise we might find ourselves with one of these on the plane back. There are other LCD recorders arriving everyday, but this one can record two streams for 3D work. It's missing one thing though...
Wow! Showering us with a veritable confetti of new products at NAB, Blackmagic Design have dipped into their top hat of tricks 14 times (at the latest count) this Monday. Now there's far too much even for us news-and-product-hungry fiends at fcp.co towers, so we're going to give you a brief round up of the six products that most interest FCP users.
Matrox add Thunderbolt to their product range with an adapter for exisiting units and built in support by July
A smart move by Matrox. Not only will new MXO boxes have built in Thunderbolt by July, they are also releasing an adapter for those of us who have a unit already.
Thunderbolt, its clearly a win win situation with the new Intel connection at the moment, and when we found out that someone had written a top ten guide, well we had to find out more.
We are going to have to hide our credit cards this morning. Apple have just posted the Promise Pegasus R6 12 & 6TB drives on the Apple Store. That 'Add to Basket' button is saying 'click me.'
When we first saw the announcement about Thunderbolt we knew it would change the industry. We met up with Clément Barberis from LaCie to look at the Little Big Disk and its new Thunderbolted big brother.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Western Digital are the latest company to show off their new Thunderbolt products. The good news is that they have two ports so they can be daisy chained together or have data looped through.
