LAS VEGAS—Like all roads leading to Rome, every technology path on display at the 2014 NAB Show eventually ends up in editing and post production. Fortunately, the Centurions empowering the process are giving us new and innovative tools to handle the challenges.
ADOBE will be presenting the latest updates to their Creative Cloud concept, including Premiere Pro, After Effects, SpeedGrade, Prelude, Story Plus and Media Encoder. In the past year alone, Adobe has released hundreds of feature updates to its tools including expanded support for native formats such as 4K and RAW.
AJA VIDEO will demo a range of products for improving camera-to-editorial workflows from SD to HD to UHD and full 4K. These include the Ki Pro family of file-based recorders, the Io line of portable video and audio I/O systems, and the KONA series of video capture cards, mini-converters and routers. New this year will be Thunderbolt 2 connectivity on the Io 4K video and audio I/O device, the Ki Pro Quad portable recorder for HD/2K/4K/UHD workflows and AJA’s Corvid Ultra and TruZoom for real-time scaling of 16:9 regions of interest to HD from 4K source.
AVID will highlight the latest developments in its Avid Everywhere collaboration platform.
GRASS VALLEY will focus on v7 of its Edius multiformat editing software, which can already handle UHD/4K and 8K content. Grass Valley’s new editing tools will include remote production capabilities. Their GV Stratus media production tool can now work on thin wireless connections such as 3G and 4G mobile systems to launch their Edius NLE on a laptop. read more...
