NAB 2010

April 14, 2010

We are digesting new offerings at NAB across various forums. Downloading the newly announced V1.2 update for the Ultrascopes we use here from Blackmagic Design. Avid release Version 5 for Media Composer which should be interesting. We are keeping a very close eye on what’s new for stereoscopic editing with a look at upgrading our facility yet again this year. Online Creative already support stereoscopic editing with Media Composer but we wish to enhance this facility in the coming months.
