NAB is here, Sony revises XAVC Codec, Monitoring Tech from Fujinon, and glass lots of glass.

So as the big dance gets closer, more info is coming out, more secrets are being held back and the announcements fill my mail box.

Sony announces a change to the XAVC 4K codec  today, adding a both 4:2:0 8bit and HD4:2:2 8bit versions to the existing structure, but then buries the content of the press release on their website you can find most of it under a post by PeterC. http://community.sony.com/#  

It now brings 4K into the100Mbps range for TV workflows

  “4K imaging bandwidth can be reduced to under 100Mbps depending on GOP structure, frame rate, and color sampling.”    I am NOT sure I want to look at 4K running at 100Mbps.

FujifilmUSA is going to be showing the first true LUT converter in their booth at NAB, built around Fuji’s  CCBox OnSet color correction tools and around the IS-100, The IS-Mini converter allows for direct inline color correction via 1D viewing LUT’s and full support for post production standard 3D LUT formats.  This is a really big deal for me, as I have been begging for a tool like this in the OnSet world for nearly 7years and have had to rely on BMD’s HDLink converters ever since Cine-tal stopped manufacturing hardware.

A rumble started this morning online that Angenieux and Cooke are teaming up for a big announcement that is coming next week.
