|JVC's ProHD cameras will be
compatible with popular NLEs from Apple, Avid and Canopus, JVC announced today…Celco
introduced CineSafe 4K, a digital archive recorder meant for the long-term
preservation of archival film by outputting RGB color separations to lower-cost
black-and-white film. Citing digital media's "vicious cycle of risk,"
Celco's Mike Constantine says B&W film can last more than 500 years if
stored properly. Also, Celco will be introducing "Big Shot," a giant
screen film recorder for 65mm Imax work…Digital video signal extension specialists
at Gefen have 15 - yes, 15 - new products on display at IBC. Many are for the
consumer/home theater market, says Gefen's Khasha Roholahi, who attends 17
trade shows a year for Gefen, but many are aimed at post pros, such as a new
HD/SDI splitter and switcher…Video card maker Bluefish444 has entered into a
joint OEM agreement with KulaByte to embed KulaByte's faster-than-realtime
TimeSlice technology within Bluefish's Symmetry software. The aim, says
Bluefish's Craige Mott, is to create a multi-format capturing, encoding and
transcoding solution for uncompressed SD and HD video, including H.264.
"Kulabyte's TimeSlice makes better use of a CPU and that means better
speed and quality," notes Mott.
