Blackmagic Cinema Camera Shipping Status Update

If you haven’t seen the Cinema Camera shipping update on Blackmagic’s forum yet, here’s the most recent post from Blackmagic Marketing Communications Manager, Terry Frechette:

“Wanted to jump on and let everyone know that the status regarding camera shipments has not changed since our update from last week. We are still working out the issues regarding one of the camera’s components that is coming into our factory slower than expected, and do not have a set timeframe for shipping in volume or how many cameras will be shipped this month.

We know that there is conflicting information about shipping dates being talked about, but please understand that when there is an update to share we will be posting that news here on this forum.

We ask that you please be patient with us as we are doing our best to get more stock flowing as quickly as possible, and that we will be communicating to customers and resellers when we have more details.”

Motion Media has many that have been on order since the day it was unveiled at NAB. The line of people waiting increases daily, so get your order in ASAP if you want one!

Apr 12, 2010 From NAB 2010: Davinci for $995 – WTF?

More : Blackmagic Design · News/Press Releases · · · · · ·

Quite the buzz about this!  It took Blackmagic less than a year to bring Davinci to the desktop market, and at $995 – I think we have to take a serious look.  First of all, lets get this right out in the open.  This is NOT the system for you to plan on running 2k or 4k files, raw RED files, or stereoscopic HD work.  For that you will need to get the Linux based, $50K license – yes, $50k.  It’s $20k for the licenses, and $30k for the REQUIRED control surface panel.  The Tangent Wave device won’t work.

Apr 12, 2010 Blackmagic Announces DeckLink HD Extreme 3D

More : Blackmagic Design · News/Press Releases · · · · ·

Now with new exciting 3D workflows, we have a new model of DeckLink HD Extreme that not only supports 3D, but also includes an hardware up, down and cross converter, support of SDI, HDMI and component analog capture and playback at video rates up to 1080p60, hardware support for 12 bit SDI, and a sync cable feature for using two cards together.

DeckLink HD Extreme 3D is ready for 3D workflow using both interleaved/side by side and dual stream capture and playback. Interleaved is where the left and right eyes are interleaved as fields so you can edit using standard editing software.

Dual steam is where DeckLink HD Extreme 3D uses the dual link SDI connections to capture and playback two streams for left and right eye, and records them into two separate media files. Dual stream 3D is higher quality because each eye is full resolution, but less compatible with current editing software.

Media Express has been upgraded to handle both interleaved/side by side and dual stream 3D, so it’s a great solution for capture and playback of 3D media. This means DeckLink HD Extreme 3D is a complete 3D solution!

DeckLink HD Extreme 3D
includes a high quality up, down and cross converter so you can edit in SD and play out HD, or edit in HD and play out SD. The cross converter lets you edit in 720p and output in 1080i, or edit in 1080i and play back in 720p. It’s incredible quality and full 10 bit with audio.

DeckLink HD Extreme 3D is also based on a new internal hardware design with support for 12 bit SDI video and full support for video rates up to 1080p60 via SDI, HDMI and analog component. For developers, two DeckLink HD Extreme 3D cards can be joined together with a cable for synchronous dual card operation.

Sony is also announcing at NAB 2010 support in their HDCAM SR deck for the 2K format that’s been built into DeckLink HD Extreme, Multibridge, Videohub and HDLink, and this is exciting news. Now you will be able to edit in 2K film with a workflow as easy as video. This will make 2K film editing and design much easier!

DeckLink HD Extreme 3D is available now for US$975.
