Check the New Streaming Page or log into the Members Area Streaming Page for these Digital Cinema Society meetings. Our latest, Introducing The RED Rocket™ was held on September 5, 2009 at LIGHTIRON Digital, Los Angeles. DCS Advisory Board Members and RED workflow aficionados Michael Cioni of LIGHTIRON Digital, and Torrey Loomis of Silverado Systems, (an authorized dealer for this product) are joined by Steve Freebarin to look at the latest workflow tool from RED, the RED Rocket™. Find out how it hyper-accelerates RED transcode, decoding and debayering 4K R3D files in realtime in addition to playing full quality 4K and scaled 2K/1080P. Our Host for the event was Alternative Rentals in Culver City, and we thank our volunteer streaming crew of Scott MacDonald for Camera, Christopher Knell for handling Sound with an assist all around by DCS Chief Technology Officer, Conrad Hunziker.
Also new to the DCS streaming library is an event covering the new AG-HPX300 Full-size Shoulder Mount Camcorder and AG-HPG20 Stand Alone Recording Deck. Panasonic’s Doug Leighton gives a detailed presentation of this camera that delivers full 10bit 4:2:2 quality using AVC-Intra codec on P2 at a price of less than $10K including the interchangeable Fuji lens. We will also cover the versatile P2 workflow tool, HPG20 that offers the ability to record and playback many formats to the ubiquitous P2. The March 26th event was held at TV Pro Gear, Glendale, CA. Special thanks to our host as well as volunteer recording team of Brad Haskel on camera and Christopher Knell on Sound.
