NAB notes and the 2011

It truly has been a 3D show, with a stereo rig in every booth. 3D glasses are the new black so this was what I saw yesterday.

a shoulder mount for your iPad that allows you to use your iPad2 camera with the display being the monitor.

RealD glasses from Polaroid.

Sleep is overrated.

Tim Dashwood's update to 3D toolbox and the new Dashwood 3D chart from DSC LABs that will also allow users access to lower cost diagnotic tools for S3D production and camera alignment looks to be a home run for indie 3D.

I talked about some new software from apple here on

There are at least 6 new ProRes or uncompressed disc recorders here, a couple of them sound good on paper, but I do not think some of the units would not survive a single day on set, i cannot imagine a couple of them being functional after a fall from a tripod.

Dan May from BMD bailed me out big time last weekend and I wanted to correct the Blackmagic showed off ultra scope for Mac at $99 comment below which was an error on my part and I apologize. The acutal price is $695 same as the windows version.

Happy New Year - I'm Back

First off Happy New Year- its already happened in Australia and parts of Asia as I type, but I still I wish everyone the most Joyous and Prosperous of New Years to all.

So I promised everyone I was going to be diligent about maintaining my Cow Blog. The last 5 months have been a whirlwind for me, I have been working and traveling almost non-stop since August. So here goes.

It's going to be a 3D world, and soon.

Since February of 2010, I have delved headfirst into 3D, and now have touched more than 50 projects so far, so I guess that I will be doing this for awhile longer. I have spoke on 3D at IBC, done a full day of 3D orientation for Local 600, in Chicago, spoke at the Sports Video Group's 3D Summit and done a full day of teaching 3D courtesy of Steve, Alan, and Kevin at the Studio - B&H.

I am lucky enough to working with the companies that are building the future of 3D, so look forward to info and updates on Element Technica, Cineform, 3D- Toolbox, Aja, 3ality, Angenieux, FujiOptics, Iridas and a bunch on the display side also.
I hope to share some of my upcoming testing with the new F3 camera from Sony and hands on with an EPIC in early January.

So Stay tuned, this is going to be a huge year for all of us.

Best wishes
