CreativeCOW presents NAB 2013: Day Four With Ryan Salazar -- NAB Expo Editorial

Only Ryan's own words suffice, "WOW! Has this been a SPECTACULAR Show or what?!?! It was intense... I interviewed Vince Pace of the Cameron | Pace Group and Marc Hamaker of Autodesk, among many others during the Show! I feasted my eyes upon so many wonderful innovations that I can't wait for them to be released throughout the coming year! I had my own TV Crew, courtesy of NAB LIVE! 2013, and I came face-to-face with a shark! It was all I had hoped for and definitely MORE!"






I only wish there had been more hours in the day for more networking…that's one of the hidden benefits of The NAB Show!





Let's move on to the important stuff -- all of the products I saw! There were too many (as there ALWAYS is at The NAB Show), and I can't talk about them all…here's a smattering of a small sample of what I saw:





Ah, the Dolby booth…You think of Dolby as "the sound people" but this is where I spoke with Cameron | Pace Group's Vince Pace about the new 3D collaboration between CPG, Dolby and Phillips Electronics! The technology agreement between these three industry giants allows them to collaborate and to further develop the auto-stereoscopic images-with-lifelike-realism 3D process. Did I mention how awesome Vince Pace really is? Well, if I didn't -- he's real awesome! He makes speaking with him so easy and he's a great guy, too! He said to keep in touch, which I plan on doing! Read more on the collaboration here: http://investor.dolby.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=755274.





Christie captivated the crowd here at The Show with the introduction of a pair of projectors that included the brand new 3-chip DLP. Another innovation included in this fantastic pair is the (also brand new) Christie TruLife electronics platform, which includes proprietary 1.2 Gigapixel per second, floating point architecture! These projectors have pictures so sharp you'll be afraid to touch the screen! The Christie D4K2560 and Christie D4K3560 projectors make for a truly breathtaking comparison between 3 F.L. and 14 F.L. with the added bonus of higher brightness for 3D! See more of the Christie line of products here: http://www.christiedigital.com/en-us/business/products/projectors/Pages/default.aspx

During the Show, when my partner and I were with Anne Fowler and Karim Miteff of Niche Video Products at a restaurant called Yolies, A Brazilian Steakhouse, we ran into my old friend Rhett Mappin from Telestream. Sure, there was some "shop talk," as there always is when professionals get together, but mostly we relaxed and enjoyed each other's company.





Blackmagic anyone? They dropped by 2013 NAB Show to share some beautiful products with the industry. The Production 4K has a Super 35 sensor, a slot for SD recording, a touchcreen, and a global shutter. Just when I thought I couldn't be more impressed, I got a look at the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. When I saw the Production 4K, I said "Wow," but then I got a look at the Pocket Cinema, "Super wow!" A super-16 sensor, 13 stops (the 4K has a dozen), true to the eye video, and you can carry it in your pocket? Yowza! I wanted to carry one away in my pocket from The Show but neither camera will be available until July. Sigh. More magic here while we wait: http://www.blackmagicdesign.com.





ORAD -- the virtual studio people -- were at The Show again and, as usual, had the upper-hand in advanced production graphics. ProSet, Orad's high-end virtual studio solution provides a powerful dimension to any virtual studio production. And let me tell you -- when it's combined with RealSet, which seamlessly integrates 3D virtual objects into a conventional studio, the 3D graphic objects produced in RealSet remain tied to their exact position regardless of camera motion -- and the presenters can even interact with the inserted graphic objects! You get a way cooler futuristic set at a small fraction of the cost! See more on their website at: http://orad.informz.net/orad/archives/archive_2203923.html.





Autodesk…Marc Hamaker…what can I say? The Autodesk Suite of Finishing Products is the most talked-about software in the industry -- major studios won't make a move without it and for a very good reason -- it's GOOD. End of story. There is no other way to say it. Smoke, Smoke for Mac, Flame Premium, Flame, Flare, and Lustre…If you couldn't make it to The Show or if you did and couldn't make it to their booth or if you made it to their booth but just want to see their products again, they've created a video for you to have that look and posted it to their website here: http://area.autodesk.com/nab2013.





Oh -- Let me mention my special meeting -- real "cloak & dagger" stuff! Non-disclosure agreements were involved, so I can't mention who or what…I can tell you that it was a fantastic experience and I hope to see more of them! What I can tell you is that I met with the developers and designers of a major manufacturing company (top executives from their California Research and Development Laboratory) about a new piece of equipment for the consumer market (that won't hit until 2014!) We not only discussed it, I saw a prototype and they even took some input from me on tweaks for this device! And while I can't even tell you what it is, every home should have one and it will revolutionize something that's done in homes all the time…OK…I have to stop…there's a lawyer standing behind me tapping me on the shoulder!





In case you missed their booth -- have no fear, Cinegy is still here! They showed their stuff at The 2013 NAB Show. The Cinegy Multiviewer is pretty sweet, too! It's so versatile that it almost makes 'versatile' a cliché! With 4-400 or more channels, it's a perfect fit for a data cloud. It can run a dozen 1920 x 1080 screens -- and how about the Cinegy Archive 9.5? Cutting-edge indeed! Yet another nifty tool for your studio. It includes Support for Windows Server 2012, and Microsoft SQL Server 2012. You simply must see its native 64-bit archive service; this, too, will help carry your work into the Cloud. Yep, Cinegy has got game! Check out more at: http://www.cinegy.com/jml.new/index.php/en/products-mainmenu-50/signal-distribution-and-monitoring/monitor-product-page.html.


Livestream



Livestream has done it again. Check-out their affordable, portable Livestream Studio HD50 -- it's a steal with an msrp of $6999. It generously includes some Blackmagic -- the Design DeckLink Quad and Design DeckLink Studio. If you're in the market for something bigger, check out the Livestream Studio™ HD1700…this puppy is loaded with neat stuff! Not bad, with an msrp of only $24,999. It has four times as much magic as the HD50 without being four times the price! Want Inputs? This rack mountable system has 17 (or 16 inputs and 1 output if you so desire). Put them to the test here: http://store.livestream.com/pages/livestream-studio-models






Hey -- according to Epilogger (http://epilogger.com/events/nab-show-2013), I was the top "Tweeter" for The 2013 NAB Show -- tweeting even more than the NABShow itself! HOW COOL IS THIS??? Stay in the know…FOLLOW ME! @RyanSalazar





The 2013 NAB Show saw the launch of the 3Play 4800 at the show -- a multi-camera live sports replay system that enhances the viewing experience for audiences by inexpensively adding the slow motion, instant replay, in-game highlights and social media publishing features. In addition, NewTek previewed new technologies in development for TriCaster, their market-leading live production switcher. You have to go to their website for more: http://www.newtek.com/products/3play-4800.html.





The Creative Cloud is a service offered by Adobe Products that allows access to their Creative Suite of software at a greatly reduced monthly rate, rather than having to buy copies of the software and load it on your computer. The best thing about the Creative Cloud is that it's online and subscription-based, meaning that by paying a small monthly price, the entire Adobe Suite is open for your use! "The Creative Cloud is really exciting," says Jason Levine, of Adobe. "It's a new way to access all the amazing applications that you know and love from Adobe -- everything from Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator…it all lives in one place; but it's not just applications -- it's tools and services." And more. I thought I knew a lot about Adobe -- but after walking away from Jason, I realized I how much I didn't know! For example, the Creative Cloud option is a fantastic opportunity not only for beginning artists, but also for teachers and students! Peruse the possibilities at: https://www.adobe.com/uk/products/creativecloud.html.


Ryan Salazar

And last but not least, here's a pic of me and the gang (Matt Penn, Eric Wise, Kylee Wall -- also from Creative COW, Joe B. and Liam Johnson) outside the In & Out Burger Restaurant, and me enjoying one of those irresistible taste treats -- as only In & Out Burger can deliver! I can't tell you how delicious this was…I can tell you THIS -- they made me an honorary co-worker! They even gave me a hat…(I wonder if they serve shark???)





Plura was here at the 2013 NAB Show, as well. The 3BM-3G broadcast monitor was so neat I'm tempted to swing by their booth in June at Broadcast Asia 2013 just to see this beautiful machine again! (Hmmm…flight to Asia...) A quality HD LCD monitor helps you use this product in many different environments. Three different sizes from 19" to 32" will be available. The gorgeous dual display has PIP, POP and PAP. It's rack mountable and has 12-bit color processing! uality and high performance! Nice, Very nice. See their product line at: http://www.plurabroadcast.com/





Ross Video brings us the MC1 master-control switcher, with new features -- you'll wonder how you were ever able to do without. Better yet, if you're an existing MC1 user, you can get the new software features free! The touch screen is intuitive, the audio mixing has 16 channels, and it will integrate with almost any plant routing system. The Carbonite eXtreme is 'outside the box' of old production-switcher architecture, with signal routing and production switching in the same chassis! Why couldn't this have happened years ago? It would have put the "E" in "easy." Easy as Ross at their website: http://www.rossvideo.com/


Vizrt


When I swung by the Vizrt booth at The 2013 NAB Show, I saw some ground-breaking stuff! Vizrt teamed up with Adobe to give the Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 more versatility. Source material can now be dragged onto the timeline and media is directly available…without a file-transfer! Nice. Social TV solution helps create interactive TV? Wow, also nice. And then there's the new Viz Engine with 4K resolution rendering, and IP media streaming. Using multiple Viz Engines allows the rendering of the same content all in real-time and an output to different formats for multiple platforms that eliminates the need for transcoding to each of the platforms! Vizrt make good stuff. You should Vizrt their website: http://www.vizrt.com





Well, as they say "in the biz" -- That's a wrap!!! The 2013 NAB Show is over…The last and FINAL day of NAB Show is always bittersweet; it's great to have made it through the entire Show, with all of its meetings and interviews and parties and products and people, but sad when it's over...So much rushing from here to there -- this meeting, that interview…WHEW! I wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING! THANK YOU to everyone who was there to help me accomplish what was needed -- you ALL were such a big help to me! Links to the videos of my appearances at the show are listed below:

First Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6QZKXBgoqc&feature=youtu.be.

Second Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yulasDZ5_q4&feature=youtu.be.

Third Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAydIfDsNFw&feature=youtu.be.

As always, remember to follow me: @RyanSalazar, read my blogs at: ryansalazar.net, as well as all the various articles I write (Creative COW, Broadcast Engineering Magazine, etc.) -- and above all: don't forget to STAY BLOGGED-IN! You'll hear from me SOON! On my way to TAO -- for the final after-party of The 2013 NAB Show!
