TV Magic to Present Workshop on File-Based HD Workflow

Broadcast
systems integrator TV Magic is partnering with Sony, AJA Video, and Apple to
present a workshop on file-based HD workflow. During this free event, Nov. 6 at
TV Magic’s San Diego facility, the four companies will showcase technologies including the Sony XDCAM HD series cameras, AJA
KONA capture card, and Apple’s Final Cut Pro nonlinear editing system, that
support flexible, efficient workflows in the HD realm. Special pricing offers
for these leading-edge, HD-capable technologies will be available to those
attending the workshop.
“Our
goal in hosting this workshop is to give individuals in the broadcast and media
business a chance to learn more about the latest HD solutions and how they
function together to enable faster, smoother, and more cost-effective
operations,” said Stephen Milley, vice president of sales and marketing
for TV Magic. “While the transition to HD and file-based work can seem
daunting, this shift represents a tremendous opportunity for businesses to improve
their workflows. This workshop is designed to help ease the transition by
bringing together in an interactive environment the experts and products that
address key elements in today’s file-based workflows.”
The
workshop will include expert presentations and live product demonstrations,
giving attendees the opportunity to experience firsthand the benefits of
file-based HD workflow. Sony will showcase its XDCAM HD file-based workflow
with new PDW700 camcorder and PDWHD1500 deck, as well as the new studio-capable
PMWEX3 XDCAM EX camcorder. AJA will display its KONA uncompressed QuickTime
I/O capture cards for SD, HD, 2K, and Dual Link HD on OS X. AJA KONA cards were
the first capture cards available for Final Cut Pro on a Mac OS, and Apple will
demonstrate this well-established NLE at the workshop, highlighting its native
support for virtually any video format and its facility-class extensibility and
interoperability.
Two
90-minute workshop sessions are scheduled, the first beginning at 10 a.m. and
the second at 2 p.m. Attendees are automatically entered into a raffle for
giveaways and special discount coupons from manufacturers such as Apple and
Sony. Registration for this free HD workshop may be completed via phone at
