A Close Look at The Panasonic AG-UX90 Camera By Stephen Schleicher For the last couple of weeks I have had a chance to test the new AG-UX90 camera from Panasonic. The lightweight camera is great for the photog on the go or for those doing documentary work. Should you grab this camera? I run down the great, and not so great features of the camera, in this review. The camera captures images on a 1-inch CMOS sensor, which ends up giving the user a better depth of field than other cameras you'll find in this price range. It isn't a full frame sensor, but then again, this camera isn't designed for DSLR fans, or those planning on shooting a feature film. ...Read More »

Content Insider #494 - VR Film Work By Miles Weston Shooting, producing a VR film sounds terribly romantic. Heck filmmaking itself sounds like a whale of a lot of fun rubbing elbows with studio bigwigs, stars, living the fast life...what could be a better way of making a fab living? Ask most filmmakers and they'd probably say just about anything would be more "fun" because it's a lot of work juggling everything to educate, entertain your audience. VR film production is even worse because you're venturing into a totally new area where the viewer suddenly is part of the action and if you think actors are unpredictable viewers are worse. And there's no safety net because it's a new frontier. Hard, exciting but talented people are mastering the new arena for people to enjoy. ...Read More »

How IBM's Watson will change cybersecurity By IDG.TV IBM captured our imaginations when it unveiled Watson, the artificial intelligence computer capable of playing?and winning!?the Jeopardy! game show. Since then, Big Blue has been introducing Watsons analytics and learning capabilities across various industries, including healthcare and information security. Cognitive security technology such as Watson for Cybersecurity can change how information security professionals can defend against attacks by helping them digest vast amounts of data. Cognitive security has the potential to reduce incident response times, optimize accuracy of alerts, and stay current with threat research. According to recent statistics from IBM Institute of Business Value, 40 percent of security professionals believe cognitive security will improve detection and incident response decision-making capabilities, and 37 percent believe cognitive security solutions will significantly improve incident response time. Another 36 percent of respondents think cognitive security will provide increased confidence to discriminate between innocuous events and true incidents. If security analysts were able to stay current on threats and increase accuracy of alerts, they could also reduce response time. These are high expectations for Watson for Cybersecurity, and IBM is working with eight different universities to feed up to 15,000 new documents into Watson every month, including threat intelligence reports, cybercrime strategies, threat databases and materials from its own X-Force research library. Jeb Linton, the chief security architect of IBM Watson and Professor Nasir Memon, professor of computer science and engineering at NYU Tandon School of Engineering, talk about how machines learn, and what the future of cognitive security technology looks like. ...Read More »
DP Vance Burberry Captures the Darkness and Light of Infidelity and Reconciliation How does one go from working in theater in Australia, to working as a lighting designer for national U.S. rock concert tours, to working as an electrician on film sets, to becoming a successful DP having shot music videos for Guns N' Roses, Pearl Jam, Santana, Coldplay, Brad Paisley and more? For DP Vance Burberry, it was a natural progression. While Vance now shoots a variety of projects, including commercials, short films, feature films and documentaries, music videos hold a special place for him given his history in the music business. It's why he said yes, when his good friend and director Jessie Hill approached him to DP Australian alternative pop singer-songwriter and producer Jarryd James' music video for his song "1000x" ft.
