Congrats to Kirk and Angus for recieving the Editing Oscar statuette for their work on The Social Network.
Shot with MX Reds, edited on FInal Cut Pro, the norm for Angus for the last few years, with DI by Michael Cioni at LightIron digital. This proves that FCP is no longer relegated to second class status. Yes, I know that Avid has ruled here, but it was nice to finally see a member of the FCP community on the Oscar stage,
on Wednesday, I will cover some of the ins and outs on the New Thunderbolt Technology that Intel and Apple have been working on for the last 3 years. This 10Gbps connection is set to forever change portable editing and onset data management.
this writing a regular blog often gets in the way of life, work and play. So Last week while Chicago was getting socked in with a minor 22 inches of snow one day http://www.suntimes.com/photos/galleries/index.html?story=3619960
I spent my time enjoying a rare adult "snow day", however there was a side event that took my attention then took over the rest of my day.
The day that this combination started , my cable provider, Comcast released their updated "xfinity" iPad app.
Ok you going to say big deal, but when I started playing with it I was astounded, Comcast now allows streaming content to your ipad while you are in home location, HD Streaming to my ipad, from cable mainstays like HBO and Showtime to a goodly chuck of cable networks various properties.
So now without leaving the warmth of my desk, I can now stream my favorite shows direct while I am doing something else. I actually watched the latest episode of HBO's BigLove with one earbud in while I was on a Conf call on the other ear (who has wished to do that)
So Comcast seems to get it, I just wonder how long it will take them to allow me to see Live Events or stream the local news to me while out on my deck or huddled against the wind shoveling my car out of the snow.
The Xfinity app can be found here on itunes http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/xfinity-tv/id401629893?mt=8
