Adobe Live event on May 29th in New York City

Did you miss the NAB show and happen to live around the New York area?  Did you hear about this or that and wish you had been there?  Well, I may not have all of the answers for you, but Adobe and our partners have put something unique together that I’m hoping you’ll come to.  It’s going to be a Post-NAB event around Adobe Systems solutions workflows along with our partners and we’ll be reviewing and showcasing all of the solutions and NAB announcements that happened this year.

Adobe Technology Preview on Adobe TV

In an earlier post I talked about some of our Adobe announcements and the most important of these to me was the technology preview demonstration that happened a couple of times during the four day NAB show.  When I did this post, I looked around on YouTube to see if someone had posted it, but no.  Well, I was pleased to hear that Adobe TV has quickly published a lot of the NAB content and so I wanted to include it here for you to view.

HD Acquisition article from Event DV

Today, while wolfing down cold pizza for 5 minutes during work, I do what I usually do – skim a trade magazine.  Today it was Event DV.  It’s been around for a while and honestly I like the format a lot. For the back page editorial they have a long time writer in the tech/video space and that is Jan Ozer.  This month he wrote about HD acquisition and it was so relevant that I wanted to pass it on to you.

Here’s the article: The Moving Picture: Ingesting HD Acquisition

Why do I like it? Well, besides rehearsing the history of acquisition starting with the VHS tape, he spends just the right amount describing what each step was and why it was good and bad.  He goes through DV, HDV, Long GOP MPEG, and on through AVC HD, AVC-Intra and DVCPro HD.  Secondly, I like it because he ends the article with MXF and how it will be important for people to choose the right editor to edit MXF, especially if metadata is important to them.  You know where I stand on Adobe’s MXF editing – I think its the best hands down and only going to get better.  But, rather than me droning on about Adobe and metadata, take a look at the article and give it a read – I’m glad I did.

Happy Friday from your Adobe pal – Dennis

PS – To my AVC HD crowd – there’s something in there for you too, though nothing I haven’t really outlined already in my now famous post

Expelled and metadata

So, I happened to catch the movie Expelled from Ben Stein yesterday and while I could wax philosophic on it for an extended period of time, I will rather limit most of my comments to the my thoughts about metadata and how it can help such films get done more quickly in the future.

NAB wrap up

NAB was tremendous as you might imagine and Adobe had a terrific presence and impact upon the attendees.  Adobe is what you might call a "destination" booth, but we don’t take anything for granted and so it was with great pleasure and relief that we had a packed booth from the opening of the show to the very last hour on Thursday.
