Orlando Public Library Takes Learning to Another Level with Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio


Orlando Public Library Takes Learning to Another Level with Blackmagic Design ATEM Television Studio
When many people think of libraries, they think of rows upon rows of books meticulously categorized and alphabetized. Perhaps there are tables with lamps emitting a soft glow and students bent over their studies or readers lost deep in the worlds of their favorite novels. Located in 26,000 square feet of space in the Orlando Public Library, the Melrose Center expands the role of the library by offering access to hardware, software, support and programming to inspire and invigorate creativity. And according to Anthony Torres, video production instructor at the Melrose Center, it's free of charge for library cardholders. Read More

White Paper:
IP Routing -
IP Routing -
At $12Bn a year the IP switch market is approximately 40 times bigger than the SDI router market. This scale drives an investment in R&D - with consequent rapid development and reduced costs - that is simply impossible in the broadcast business. Broadcasters can benefit from this economy of scale and high velocity development but only if they stay with mainstream equipment. Building specialist IP switches for broadcast is a bad idea - it cuts us off from the IT future. Read More

Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
Editing 4K Video on Surface Pro with Sony Vegas
A few weeks ago I showed that a Microsoft Surface 3 could successfully run a full on non-linear video editor using Sony Vegas 13 Pro as the host program. But I wanted to see how the 'experience' of using the Surface Pro was, that is in use, how it would fare and was it actually usable as against simply capable? To start with, I really threw a challenge at it, loading up some 4K footage shot from Panasonic's HC-X1000 pro camera. The footage was ingested with no fuss and throwing it on the timeline caused no protests from either Vegas or the Surface. Read More

Surprising Experiences with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Surprising Experiences with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
When writer/director Deep Williams (no relation) found me through my work as DOP on "American Pastime" (Warner Brothers/2008), he was looking for a specific look and feel for his upcoming short film project, "The Sac Fly." He liked the feel of the imagery created for "American Pastime," where the images play a big part in creating the mood and help tell the undercurrents of the story. His pitch had me from the beginning-a dramatic story of racial inequality, told with black and white imagery. The issue became not one of "can I" or "will I" do it, as I was obviously interested, but one of budget. Read More

Q&A with Ian Hamilton, CTO of Signiant
We can't just brush off successful attacks as someone else's bad security practices. We all need to be smarter about security, which means learning from what happened and letting go of outdated thinking. It's no longer about thinking you can completely defend against every possible cyber attack, but also about monitoring and adjusting practices as quickly as the attackers do. Read More

Documentary Express
Plenty of people move to Hollywood in the hopes of becoming an actor or filmmaker. In order to find regular work and make a successful career out of it, it really helps to learn the ropes from someone who has experienced it firsthand.

After all, not only has he found success as an actor and filmmaker, but he also began two production companies and a school to share his knowledge with the next generation of young actors and filmmakers.
