XDCAM NEWS : XDCAM @ 30,000ft

Discovered: Hot thread on the Vegas editing DMN FORUMS

DATE: May 05, 2004 6:47 am gmt

SUBJECT: Vegas rules at 30,000 feet

Today I had the pleasure of editing a Sheryl Crow video on a United Airlines flight from Chicago to LA. Not only did the editing take place on the plane, but the performance was recorded as well. This concert in the sky was shot on five Sony XDCam cameras then the discs were handed to me with less than an hour before landing. I was able to digitize five camera angles of almost five minutes each and do a multi-camera edit on my lap-top delivering a four and a half minute finished video on both DV and Hi-8 including showing the video to Sheryl for approval. Just after landing, the tape was uplinked via satellite as part of a huge press event for Sony Connect and United Airlines.
No one could believe that it could be done and delivered that quickly.

XDCAM NEWS : NBC News To Test Sony's XDCAM Prior To Its Use At The Olympics
Posted by xdcam on 2004/5/6 9:28:12 (1975 reads)

19th April, 2004

Sony's new XDCAM Professional Disc System will be utilized in a pilot test program this spring by NBC News prior to the system's use for the network's coverage of the Summer Games in Athens.

Dave Mazza, NBC Olympics senior vice president of engineering, had also previously announced that Sony's optical disc technology will be used to create profiles of athletes and provide Games-related news from in and around Athens for NBC's coverage.

According to Stacy Brady, vice president of news field operations for NBC: "Sony's XDCAM optical disc system offers significant new workflow advantages over traditional tape-based formats. We are particularly excited by its interoperability with Avid NLE systems and believe both companies will provide a technically robust solution for tapeless recording, editing, storage and archival. As a result, we'll be able to shoot, review, edit and access material more quickly than ever before." Full Story
