: NVIDIA's 3D Vision video player technology free to developers
At NAB 2011, NVIDIA
made its 3D Vision video player technology available for free to Web developers, which will enable them to build websites for streaming 3D video to 3D Vision-equipped PCs. NVIDIA 3DTV Play
software enables consumers to attach their PC or notebook to 3D HDTVs and HDMI 1.4-capable audio/video receivers for full HD 3D with HD surround sound audio. The company was the first to deliver a 3D video plug-in for the Microsoft Media Platform (MMP) Player Framework v2.5
(F.K.A. Silverlight Media Framework) with support for active-shutter 3D glasses. The plug-in is based on the same technology that powers NVIDIA's 3D online community
. NVIDIA is also releasing a how-to-guide enumerating the key steps and components for developers to integrate 3D streaming video capabilities into websites. The 3D video player plug-in and guide are available here.

NVIDIA was nearly omnipresent on the NAB 2011 show floor in a range of products powered by NVIDIA Quadro GPUs. That included 3ality Digital
, which is leveraging the NVIDIA CUDA parallel architecture for its IntelleMatte stereoscopic 3D digital compositing application and IntelleCal automated digital camera alignment software.
NVIDIA Quadro Fermi
demonstrated Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 software accelerated with NVIDIA Quadro 4000 and Quadro 5000 pro graphics on workstations. Adobe showcased Premiere Pro on an HP EliteBook 8740w mobile workstation with the NVIDIA Quadro 5000M, for video editors on the go. The ARRI Group/ARRI Inc.
showed a technical preview of their CUDA-enabled ARRIRAW software development kit (SDK), so app developers can implement real-time processing of ARRIRAW's digital negative using NVIDIA GPUs. IRIDAS
demonstrated SpeedGrade, and how RAW workflow enables full resolution, pre-visualization of color decisions on set while maintaining the digital negative.

“I am thrilled to be joining the COW team,” said Debra Kaufman, newly named Associate Editor of Creative COW Magazine. “In an era in which so much coverage has shrunk to 300-word sound bites, I'm delighted to be able to cover the dramatic changes in our industry in depth. Additionally, I look forward to reaching a huge number of engaged readers working in production and post, in the U.S. and internationally. Publisher Ronald Lindeboom and Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson early on understood the importance of a web presence, and have created an astonishingly large audience both online and in print.”

Kylee Peña's NAB 2016 Review: It's The Little Things
This was not an exciting year for the National Association of Broadcasters conference in Las Vegas, says Creative COW Associate Editor Kylee Peña, but that doesn't mean it wasn't important. The “exciting” stuff isn’t what affects post production workflow the most, at least not immediately. Kylee notes that we may not even know NAB 2016's most important announcements for a few more years. After all, it might have been a long time after the introduction of 4K or even HD at NABs past before those mattered to YOU. So as important as NAB is, that's why it's important not to lose sight of the things that matter the other 51 weeks of the year.
