Bob Zelin's NAB: Storage, Broadcast, Thunderbolt & 4K

Bob Zelin's NAB: Storage, Broadcast, Thunderbolt & 4K

The clients Bob Zelin's clients facility systems design business don't care about hype. They only want to hear the same thing you do: "Does this thing really work, and is it cheap?" The two aren't always compatible. Sometimes cheaper tech makes business harder, and hype is always in the way -- but you can count on Bob to call 'em as he sees 'em. At NAB 2014, Bob saw plenty, from plummeting prices for 4K to vastly expanding options for storage.

Inter BEE keynote: Japan Will Broadcast 8K by 2020 Olympics

Inter BEE keynote: Japan Will Broadcast 8K by 2020 Olympics

It's not news that Japan has announced its intent to broadcast 8K by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

But when Creative COW Contributing Editor Debra Kaufman was in Japan in November, she learned just how serious Japan is in its intent to broadcast 8K -- and to do so sooner than originally announced.

TV's All-time Greatest Openings Friday Night ABC 1971-72

Talking about great movie title sequences is pretty common, but talking about great TV opening sequences typically begins and ends with the theme song. Creative COW's Tim Wilson takes a highly personal trip through a single night that offered five great theme songs in five great opening sequences, in five shows that have largely stood the test of time -- and certainly had a profound impact on him: ABC's Friday night lineup in 1971-72, kicking off with The Brady Bunch and The Partridge Family.

Workflow: Industry Pros Face the Challenges

Workflow: Industry Pros Face the Challenges

With the rise of 4K, the film/TV industry faces a new set of challenges in acquisition, post production, distribution, media management and storage. Many executives remember all too well how the often-painful adoption of HD created upheavals in the production and post chain, and now, only a few years later, the ante is being upped to 4K.

CatDV Enhances Production of JPL/NASA Exploration Programs

CatDV Enhances Production of JPL/NASA Exploration Programs

When Explorer 1, built by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), launched into orbit in 1958 successfully marking the United States' first entry into space, America's excitement for space exploration was ignited. For over 50 years, JPL has continued to explore the solar system, other stars and galaxies with robotic spacecraft, amassing huge data files along the way. JPL's television production facility is tasked with archiving and preserving the historical content of over 50 years of media files from the early days of rocketry and interstellar space exploration. JPL clearly needed a powerful asset management system, and found a powerful tool in CatDV.

Arrested Development at Shapeshifter

Arrested Development at Shapeshifter

Shapeshifter in Los Angeles most recently color-corrected and added VFX to ten of the new 15 episodes of the cult TV show Arrested Development. The job came to the full-service post facility almost accidentally, when colorist Randy Coonfield advised the production on how to best round-trip between the company's Avids and its DaVinci Resolve from Blackmagic Design. Since all 15 episodes were released at once, Randy had his hands full, often color-correcting two episodes at a time to make the final push, turning out an entire season in a matter of days. Here, Randy Coonfield talks to Creative COW about what it took to get this new on-demand season out and streaming.

VFX Titans Remember Ray Harryhausen

"When we grieve Ray Harryhausen's passing, we are at least in part grieving perhaps the last living link to the earliest days of movie visual effects," says Creative COW's Debra Kaufman. She spoke to many of today's VFX giants who were inspired by Ray, including Phil Tippett, Richard Edlund, Jeffrey A. Okun and ILM Animation Director Hal Hickel, who says, "Ray Harryhausen's impact on an entire generation (several actually) of filmmakers cannot be overstated, each of them trying again and again to reproduce the wonder they first felt as a child watching Jason fight those skeletons."

NAB 2013: Bob Zelin: The Evolution & Revolution

NAB 2013: Bob Zelin: The Evolution & Revolution

Calling Bob Zelin one of the industry's most respected voices of engineering and systems experience is an understatement. (We might also have to add "most feared.") For over 20 years, he has been at the leading edge of building next-generation post houses and broadcast facilities using the latest, greatest, and most affordable new technology. He's also been around long enough to have seen through an awful lot of hype, so when Bob drops the "R" word, it's because he really believes it's revolutionary himself. His coverage of the 2013 NAB Show is once again don't-miss reading.
