Chris Randall | If you're in the market for a new laptop for your SDEs, I highly recommend the HP EliteBook 8760w workstation. It's like taking a super-fast, full-sized tower computer and cramming it all into a laptop with an amazing display. With Adobe CS 5.5, the 8760w, and its built-in NVIDIA graphics card, you'll be ready to rock the SDE world!

Chris Randall | Image is everything. And when it comes to displaying your work, a projected image that matches the high quality of the imagery you capture really makes your work stand out. Ideal for presenting same-day edits (SDEs) and other work event filmmakers present at events, the Optoma TH1060 DLP projector is one that will truly make your high-definition video shine at a price just about any professional can afford.

Chris Randall | Most wedding cinematographers have come to realize the value of producing same-day edits (SDEs) for their wedding clients. It's a wonderful opportunity to show off our shooting, editing, and storytelling talents and a rare opportunity where we're actually paid to put our work in front of a room full of new clients, simply by carving out some time in the day to do what we do best. But there's one part of it that has little or nothing to do with our signature skills: presentation. In this article, we will explore what is required to cut out the third-party AV crew intermediary and use and implement your own AV gear for your SDEs. Chris Randall

Chris Randall | With hardware-assisted cards that provide their own real-time filters, you almost need a roadmap to follow how these effects can best be utilized in your day-to-day productions. When Jeff Pulera created the RT.X2 Revealed tutorial DVD ($99), he set out to create just such a roadmap—and quite a bit more.

Chris & Laura Randall | The Matrox RT.X2 is a stable real-time HDV editing solution that adds filters and time-saving features to Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0. Dynamic Link and WYSIWYG video output allow users to view their work just as the client would. Most editors will need to upgrade or build a new system to accommodate the card and its requirements. At $1,995, it's not an inexpensive upgrade, but you will have a professional SD and HDV editing system that rivals much more expensive options.
