The Monday Morning Buzz at NAB
Good morning all. Today, will be my first day on the convention floor at NAB, starting with the keynote address which will feature a NAB Distinguished Service Award presentation to Michael J. Fox. (Pretty excited to see that!)
Already, I’ve been (last night) to the Adobe hotel suite where Adobe met with their re-sellers and showed them some of the new features in CS5 (VERY cool stuff to be announced publicly today, that’s all I say for now). I’ve also meet with about 30 people who will be at the MotionMedia Ball later tonight at an impromptu gathering at the Yard House. At that event, I had an interesting talk with both an attendee of the REDucation and a beta tester for the upcoming Media Composer 5 by Avid. (All I can say about that is that I want to get the new Avid now.)
So, with Avid and Adobe going full guns into making editing better and better, I’ve just got to say that at this point, Apple’s Final Cut Pro is looking like it’s just going to be a prosumer app in no time. We’ll see how the shootout goes at FCPUG Network’s Supermeet Tuesday night!
BTW, they still need a camera and shooter for the live stream of the SuperMeet. Hit me up on Twitter if you have a tripod and camera that can stream SD via firewire and want free admission and raffle tickets for Supermeet!
