Tim Siglin | Newtek's long history in video production switchers—starting with the Amiga-based Video Toaster and more recent portable TriCaster units—takes an extreme leap forward with the rackmountable TriCaster 850 Extreme. Looking more like a four-rack-unit (4 RU) computer server than a traditional TriCaster, this is a TriCaster geared toward studio or broadcast facility integration rather than field production.

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!

David McKnight | Vegas Pro 11 was announced at IBC in September and is an exciting and much-anticipated upgrade to the cornerstone in Sony Creative Software's (SCS) media production line. It's available now at www.sonycreativesoftware.com for immediate download. There are some important changes afoot and in this review we're going to take a look at what's new, what's changed, what's missing, and whether or not you should upgrade from your current version.

Jan Ozer | I think that Final Cut Pro X will be a very successful program for Apple, but primarily as iMovie Pro, not the next version of Final Cut Pro. I don't argue with Apple's economic motivation for eschewing the pro market; it's the best way to maximize Apple's development resources. But I take serious issue with the notion that the Final Cut Pro X launch has been anything close to successful, at least for professional users. If anything, it's a downloadable New Coke.

Philip Hinkle | The second tutorial in our ongoing series on Grass Valley EDIUS is on a new feature in EDIUS 6.0 called Proxy Mode editing. Proxy Mode allows you to edit with low-resolution proxy files, which make field editing is easier because they conserve your system resources, allowing you to work as efficiently with a laptop or other lower-powered computer as on the tower systems in your studio. It should speed up your workflow and allow you to edit in more places than you ever thought possible.

Jan Ozer | So there I was, testing the single CPU, six-core HP Z400, trying to figure out the cost/benefits of the system versus the dual-CPU, 12-core HP Z800. When I started testing Adobe Production Premium CS5, the Z400 proved faster in every test. While I love these man-bites-dog stories, you don't run them without lots of testing, and ultimately, the situation got sorted out. In the process, I learned something about CS5 that might save you some rendering time down the road, which I'll share herein. I'll also quickly detail when it makes sense to consider a dual-CPU system for CS5, and when a single CPU will do just as well.

I had multiple reasons for the purchase, the most important of which was to understand the current state of the Linux software market. Prompting this interest were a number of factors: Google's announcement of its Chrome operating system, my avid dislike of Windows Vista, and Apple's reluctance to offer a notebook that costs under $999.

Jan Ozer | Adobe Creative Suite 4 (CS4) Production Premium allows you to send Premiere Pro sequences to both the Adobe Media Encoder (AME) and Adobe Encore for rendering or authoring while continuing to edit in Premiere Pro. The bad news is this significantly increases CS4's memory requirements, and on a 32-bit operating system, this can mean longer rendering times, instability, or both. If you want CS4's features without the performance penalty, you should consider running CS4 on a 64-bit system.

Tim Siglin | Sometimes things just don't go as planned. As we get ready for the holidays, including church pageants and celebrations that have to be recorded, broadcast, or streamed, it's worth taking a moment to think about contingency plans. Should you roll tapes in the cameras as well as at the master recorder? Is it time to buy a disk-based recording device to act as a backup to the master recorder? These issues were brought home a few weeks ago when a client emailed in a panic.
