Active Storage are teasing us with this countdown to Monday where a machine to replace the EOL'd Apple XServe might be announced. They have a pretty good track record too..
Active Storage have come up with a Metadata controller that looks like the now defunct Xserve. They're very proud of their new baby especially its ''out of the box'' readiness.
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.
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...
WWDC 2011 Steve Jobs Keynote. OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud. No FCPX, no new hardware, but a still a classic
***Updated with embedded YouTube HD video of keynote***
With no new hardware and no sign of FCPX, Steve Jobs' keynote speech was nevertheless a classic. We detail some of the points that will relate to the Pro Apps user. How about a 97% price reduction for one!
We all know that we will be able to download OS X Lion from the Mac App Store in July. But what if you have multiple seats that need upgrading and would a possible volume licence apply to other (ahem) downloadable apps in the future?

We've been expecting it for a while, Apple have released a free update to Final Cut Pro X. New features are included and some features announced for the future.
With Apple announcing support for shared storage this week for FCPX, ProMAX have timed this free webinar rather well.
One of the big stumbling blocks for the acceptance of Final Cut Pro X with professional editors has been its use on shared storage. Apple have published a white paper of Xsan Best Practices, it makes interesting reading.
We have tried quite a few asset management systems here at FCP.co and they all have one thing in common, they are complicated. Axle Video may have the answer to individuals and companies who want a simple way to share assets.
When Apple axed Final Cut Server, it left a void in the digital asset management (DAM) market. Possible replacement company Cantemo has published a sneak video preview on the FCPX and Cantemo Portal workflow.
Our taster article about Cantemo Portal (DAM) and FCPX proved to be very popular. So we are very pleased to publish a superb in depth article by Jonathan Eric Tyrrell called 'Working with Cantemo Portal.' He's also published a new workflow video showing how Cantemo and Final Cut Pro X work together.
