NAB 2013 - and so it begins...
By: Debra Kaufman on Apr 7, 2013 at 8:30:41 pm

Sunday is always a hectic day for the press, as we trek from hotel to hotel for various press conferences. Sometimes the manufacturers provide transportation from one event to another ('cause you'd never get there on time any other way), but most of the time we're on our own to cab it or ride the rails (the Monorail that is). If Sunday's events are any indication, here are the trends I see so far: 1. Everybody is playing nice with everybody. Manufacturers realize they have much more to gain from partnerships than selling the concept that all you need is...

Reminder: Give Credit To Your Mentors

Last week I found myself in Urban Outfitters for some unknown reason, and started looking through their mostly novelty book collection. Recipes for hemp, something about beards, veganized Betty Crocker, even the classic Tumblr Feminist Ryan Gosling is now a coffee table book. In the piles of hipster literature and cat pictures, I found a book called "Damn Good Advice (for people with talent!)" by George Lois . The book is, as you'd guess, a list of advice largely aimed at young professionals, arranged with one point per page with a succinct paragraph explaining it. I glanced through a few...

However, documentary film production is not as easy as it seems.So follow this tutorial for some tips on creating a documentary film you can be proud of. Do some research. Even if you know your topic well, still do research for it. You can use the Internet and the library to find information. You may...

Vendors with no Computer Engineers on staff will pull together monstrous conglomerations of SSDs and RAID cards, run a few benchmarks (probably four or five different ones until they find one they like) and then claim they've hit some huge number of Gigabytes per second.

Avid — Has the Ship Sailed (or Even Sunk)?

The pros they want to keep are moving on in records numbers (let alone dwindling). My favorite quote from a Boston Globe Article " To fight back against Apple and Adobe, Avid spent more than $600 million buying two companies in 2004 and 2005 that sold audio and video editing products aimed at consumers. Instead, Avid wound up selling its consumer businesses last year for just $17 million." Sounds a...
