Anthony Burokas | The ioSafe SoloPRO and its smaller counterpart, the Solo, are drive enclosures that promise fire and water protection, including "full immersion," although I don't think anyone actually expects them to operate under water. What it means is that they'll survive a flood or the exposure to water used to put out a fire. Then, if generally intact, you should be able to reconnect the drive to your computer and access the data.

Shawn Lam | The Atomos Ninja has allowed me to improve my acquisition and delivery video quality using the same video camera I've been using. The best part is that the cost to upgrade my recording is relatively low compared to the cost of a new video camera, and it exceeds the recording quality of AVCHD, the codec that has replaced HDV. I'm also not a big fan of having to media-wrangle-that is, to change and dump cards while on-site-and having a 500GB hard drive means I can record 11 hours in LT, 7.5 hours in 422, or 5 hours in HQ before I need to switch to a second hard drive.

John Goolsby | If you've heard about the Sony NEX-FS100, you've probably heard it described as one of two things: a game changer or an expensive DSLR. Which is it? Neither. Sony calls this new model a "motion picture camcorder." I'll bet the company spent a lot of time trying to decide how to name this new piece of equipment, and I think it made a good call. The FS100 does not take stills, and it is not really designed for event filmmakers, but with a few minor modifications, it does a fabulous job.

Travis Cossel | If you're used to doing same-day edits--or editing with any kind of time pressure--using USB 2.0 drives, then CalDigit's new AV Drive, a new portable hard drive featuring USB 3.0 support, is going to impress you in a number of areas. Transfer of clips from CF cards alone can save you quite a bit of time with the USB 3.0 technology.

The media packs are ruggedized with internal isolation. Maxell touts operating shock tolerance of 350 Gs—something generally only possible with flash media. Plus, with the iVDR-X adapter, you get faster access to your footage than the FW 400-based FireStore or a USB 2.0 connection to anything.

Jan Ozer | With Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and hard disk prices dropping, it seems like a good idea to consider how a NAS device such as the QNAP TS-559 Pro could work for a videographer in a typical data-intensive environment. So here I do just that. The caveat is, however, that if you're looking for a comprehensive review of the TS-559 Pro, including an in-depth look at its advanced features, look elsewhere. Here, I'll first describe what NAS is, what its strong points are for videography studios, and how the TS-559 Pro worked for me for simple file backup roles.

Marc Franklin | Every year the NAB show teems with new product announcements and trends, and it often marks the real-world debut of tantalizing new gear that was under glass a year ago. Some of what you see is too premature for primetime, some new developments look a little misguided, and others are simply mismatched with the event filmmaking world. Here's a look at what's ready, what's real, and what's most relevant to us among the most exciting products that are making their way to market following this year's show.

Ben Balser | MediaShare isn't as powerful as a full-fledged asset management and automation application such as Final Cut Server, which you'd be spending a lot more money on to set up and implement. MediaShare is a smaller system; it's easier to implement, and it's geared toward smaller operations or studios that need some form of cloud-based collaboration tool or a cloud-based review-and-approval tool in its most basic form.

Ben Balser | Is Final Cut Server for everyone? In a nutshell, no. A one- or two-person shop would do better to manually create a folder structure on a hard drive and use Adobe Bridge to manage its assets. But for mid-size and larger studios, broadcast stations, and environments where you have multiple people doing different jobs on multiple projects, FCSvr can be a huge timesaver and organizer. It's powerful, flexible, and really nice for a version one release.

Many of those churches have already moved into putting their services online, via a podcast on iTunes. But in doing so, they've found that they don't get the full impact of allowing viewers to join with them live. Just after the mid-April National Association of Broadcasters show, I had the chance to visit one of the churches I'm working with.

Stephen F. Nathans|Sony’s DVDirect knocked my socks off like no product I’ve seen in years. Billed as a product that combines the capabilities of standalone and desktop DVD recorders, DVDirect’s best feature is its ability to record live video to DVD as you shoot it. It boasts excellent image quality and limited but functional DVD menu creation. It’s also a rock-solid desktop burner, promising and delivering state-of-the-art high-speed DVD±R/RW and 4X double-layer DVD+R DL.
