NAB Wish list

NAB is around the corner - the expo runs April 14-17. It'll be quite different without Avid and Apple, the two anchor tenants for that hall, to be conspicuously missing.

Who's all going?

Here's my own wish list for NAB:

DVD Studio Pro 5 with Blu-Ray authoring
32 GB Panasonic P2 cards drop in price to below $1,000

What's on your wish list?

Jan Luncheon "MacWorld" mtg.

Hello, this is Mike Kingsley and I am just trying to post up some info on the meeting that was hosted at the Pie Pizzeria.

Some of the things that were discussed were of course the MacBook air. Flash drives and solid state media seem to really be catching on these days. Just think of the P2 cards. Also I was having a discussion with Patrick from PBC Media the other day on how the stupid Final Cut Studio install takes FOREVER. I can see a day where large installs come with a little cheap "flash" drive similar to a usb keychain drive that you can just plug into your machine and install much more quickly.

We also discussed some neat software packages such as Flow from Gridiron software. This will be the ultimate in content management, collaboration, and tracking for design work but it should also work with the Video App's as well. Who knows if Final Cut Server will ever come out, it seems to be on hold but that product will be nice also as far as content management with Video.

There were other things discussed. If anyone else can remember or has any comments please post away in the comments!!

Big Business and Techology Expo

So I took a chance and set up a booth at the Big Business and Technology Expo at UVSC (or UVU) McKay Events Center. It ran March 5 and 6. I didn't know what to expect. We got our booth up a half-hour late, but once it was up, it was pretty cool. We had a good response. We'll have to wait and see if any of the referrals / prospects turn into actual business.
You can see my youngest, Henry, and my 5 year-old Michael, who dropped in for a visit. They dug the candy bowl.
