  • IBC 2011: Highlights and Wrap-Up

    Posted By Sam Johnson

    So IBC 2011 has come and gone, but what were my show highlights? Super Hi-Vision 3D broadcast took a little bit of a back-seat this year. Is the fad over? Who knows!

  • IBC 2011: Tweak Software's RV

    Posted By Russell Dodgson

    I had a nice walk through from Alan Trombla about some of the new features in the latest release of Tweak Software's RV. One of the really interesting things about RV is that at first glance it seems to be a fairly expensive flipbook software. Often ... Continue reading "IBC 2011: Tweak Software's RV" »

  • IBC 2011: The Foundry debuts Hiero

    Posted By Sam Johnson

    Today we were invited to the Foundry's Hiero tech demo. It was sold to me as a "Timeline for Nuke/Nuke X," however, upon the start of the demo it was clear that it was more than just a timeline.

    Posted By Sam Johnson

    First stop for myself at IBC 2011 was to see Sony's new Trimaster EL OLED reference broadcast monitors.
