USB - SD & CF Media Duplication

One of the things I saw at NAB 2014 was a company that has, and still makes DVD duplicators, but has moved on to Solid State duplication. This is a great direction for a company to stay relevant in the marketplace.  

The compnay is Ily which has their USA offices in City of Industry,CA. 

I did not know how useful this tech is until a client of mine said that they had departments at their compnay where they were doing this all by hand one-at-a-time on a computer. I didn’t talk to Ily much at NAB because I didn’t personally need the device.

When I found a need existed I went ahead and posted this as a bookmark for others!

NAB 2014 - Roswell UFO Tactical Squad

The Roswell Flight Test Crew

I do not know who these brave media reporters are. They who go to NAB 2014 and glean the latest technology from our world - and report on that other world.

But they made their presance known. They were there in all of thier tactical apparel glory. To demonstrate their resolve to document the unknown! To boldly go where no exhibit had gone before!

Actually their blog has some good comments. I just realized I was envious that I did not have a uniform!

NAB 2014 - PREVIZION

PREVIZION

This is a technology which allows you to shoot a matte shot of a live object or person and insert it into a pre-made CG 3D enviroment. The camera is free to move around and has a sensor on the top which shoots at postition targets to feed the software with position.

It is pretty cool, they were shooting me and sticking me in a Mini Cooper and I was a real-time layer. I was in the driver seat and then they could put me into the back seat from the steering wheel (that isn’t me).

I embeded a FXPhd video from Mike Seymour (whom I respect) with the founder of the system showing the nuts and bolts!

NAB 2014 - LTO Thunderbolt

mLogic Showed a LTO Thunderbolt solution which looks like a neat solution for independent filmmakers. As a generator of lots of GB’s of footage, my eyes are always open for the best and fastest way to archive digital assets. I think this might be a good product for DIT’s in the field given that it can be DC powered.

Here it is from their website -

mTape Highlights

  • World’s first LTO-6 with Thunderbolt connectivity
  • Supports LTFS for drag and drop functionality
  • 2.5 TB Native storage capacity per tape cartridge (6.25TB compressed)
  • Compatible with industry leading backup and archiving software
  • Dual Thunderbolt ports enables daisy-chaining of Thunderbolt peripherals
  • External SAS port provides expansion for additional tape drives or other SAS devices
  • Compact, portable form-factor
  • DC powered - Enables use in any environment
  • Mac OSX and Windows compatible
