JVC answers my questions about the GY-HM650, i.e. WiFi bands and FTP protocols.
Back in April 2012, I published the article For broadcast news, “Starbucks is the new microwave!” which was a recurring theme at NAB 2012. In that article, I covered several proposed uses of several mobile Internet services as substitutes for microwave, and included information from Avid (Interplay Sphere) and JVC’s GY-HM650 news camera with WiFi and FTP. At that time, JVC kindly delayed answering my questions about WiFi bands and FTP/SFTP protocols, and have now responded. Read the full article free in ProVideo Coalition magazine…
Is T-TAP appropriate to connect an HP DreamColor monitor?
As I have covered in great detail in several prior articles here in ProVideo Coalition magazine, the most complete and most reliable method of connecting your critical video monitor to your computer based editing system is via a professional a/v i/o interface, like those Thunderbolt models now offered by AJA, Blackmagic, Matrox, and now even MOTU. However, most of them are more than what many editors need today in the tapeless acquisition, file-based era. Often editors no longer require any audio or video input at all, since the material primarily arrives in file-based format. That’s why AJA decided to design and build a simpler, lower-priced, self-powered, output-only device called the T-TAP at NAB 2012. The outputs are SDI and HDMI. This article will cover all of the specs (even some vital ones that AJA hasn’t yet published), applications, recommended connections, and define whether the T-TAP is appropriate or not for use with HP’s DreamColor monitor.
Larry Jordan, Daryn Okada, and Allan Tépper join Leo Laporte and Alex Lindsay on MacBreak Weekly
At NAB 2012, I was honored to be invited by Leo Laporte to participate together with Larry Jordan, Daryn Okada and Alex Lindsay on MacBreak Weekly. This episode 295 was streamed live from the Las Vegas Convention Center on Tuesday, April 17 2012 and is now available for immediate streaming or download. We discuss many of the new developments at NAB 2012, in general and with respect to the Mac. Alex Lindsay even comments about the potency of the coffee he allegedly consumed during his yet unconfirmed trip to the 24th century during the creation of a yet unannounced feature, as covered in a recent article here in ProVideo Coalition magazine. This episode of MacBreak Weekly has a duration of 1:41, calculated especially for fans of palindromes.
