Key Code Media’s NAB 2009 Overview

May 7, 2009 Leave a comment

NAB 2009 was one of the more civilized shows I’ve ever attended.  Plenty of clients, a small amount of curious consumers, shorter cab lines and inexpensive hotel rates.  Here is our synopsis of the key things we were on hand to witness and our opinions of this year’s show and announcements.

 

Avid Technology unveiled their new One Avid strategy combined with a new Avid logo.

Five strategic principles:

Drive customer success

o From enthusiasts to the enterprise

o Fluid, dependable workflows

o Collaborative support

o Avid solutions optimized in an open ecosystem

 

A very positive move is that the companies will be integrated and Media Composer and Protools will be able to exist on the same computer.  The organization is working to improve their business structure and quality.  Overall they are getting better, but after the challenging product life cycle of Adrenaline, not a tough area to improve.  The major announcement was of Avid handling direct support for Final Cut Studio systems connected to Avid MediaNet (Unity) and Avid ISIS.  Although there is some uncertainty of how this will translate to performance, but once is it known, we will post our findings and information.  Avid also showed off the Avid Media Access allowing for a native end to end workflow for XDCam HD.  Key Code Media has the AMA workflow featuring Protools, XDCam HD and Media Composer currently connected to a Unity MediaNet in our Studio City location.

 

StorageDNA introduced their revolutionary DNA solutions as a subscription service. Syncsy ($49.95/mo.) and Portals ($9.95/mo.) allow for peer to peer synchronized workflows.  All features of the SDNA720 are included, allowing a seamless workflow with delta differentiation, SSL encryption, and WAN acceleration.  For more information, click on www.syncsy.com.  The award committees definitely missed out on a hot new workflow which is gaining quick market acceptance.  In addition, ISAN was introduced allowing for SAN synchronizations for $249/mo.

 

AJA unveiled the Ki Pro, which is a Direct ProRes capture from camera to an AJA Ki Pro disk. This product will solve a big problem for JVC, RED and Canon camera users in getting their media into Final Cut Pro.  Product lists for $4000.00 and will be shipping in June. The Ki Pro was awarded the Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit Award, the DV Black Diamond Award, the TV Technology Star Award, and the Videography Magazine Vidy Award at NAB.

 

Facilis premiered version 4.0, a Facilis Shared File System which enables multi-write Virtual Volume access over 8Gbit fibre channel or Ethernet. Volumes are designated as file-level or volume-level through settings in the management tool; these attributes can be changed at any time. 

 

Root6 showed off version 3.5 of Content Agent integrating Blu Ray automation and Red conversions to Avid DNXHD files. 

 

Digital Rapids introduced Touchstream which is the size of a breadbox and delivers from Flash, Silverlight and QuickTime (Darwin server) powered web experiences to IPTV set-top boxes and mobile phones.

 

Editshare introduced Universal Media File technology – a core feature of the Flow product line, which allows a single media file to be used simultaneously by Apple and Avid editors.  Automatic Duck’s Pro Import FCP and Pro Export FCP allow editors to translate bi-directionally between Avid and Final Cut Pro sequences. Now EditShare and Automatic Duck have joined forces to create a special version of Automatic Duck that understands EditShare’s Universal Media Files and how to retrieve information from the Flow database.

 

NLTek was showcased in both Panasonic and Sony’s booths with AI (Auto Ingest), the industry’s first software for fast and efficient moving of MXF media, with your metadata, to local storage in the field or to Avid Interplay or Avid MediaManager based workgroups.  This powerful media management tool takes recorded media from your FieldPak, GFPAK, P2 disk or XDCAM media, transfers it to your computer, then to your Avid MediaNet or ISIS system, and to your editing workstations.
