NAB 2004: Day Two

This post was published more than a few years ago (on 2004-04-20) and may contain inaccurate technical information, outmoded thoughts, or cringe takes. Proceed at your own risk.

Woke up late, got dressed, rolled out the door, caught a cab to the Venetian, and just made it to the Apple event a few minutes before it started. They announced a TON of cool stuff, which I’m sure you can read all about on their web page. Quickly, though, so we don’t lose the non-techheads: FCP-HD looks awesome for dealing with hi-def footage, especially 720/24p from Panasonic’s new 1200A deck, and Motion with its realtime motion graphics creation is going to make my life a lot easier. I met up with my vendor pal Robby at Apple’s champagne brunch reception after, and after a few free food items, we walked back to his hotel, the dreaded Circus Circus.
