I am always curious what people are looking for. I am looking for (among other things) storage and shared storage. Of course I am looking at the high-profile new acquisition solutions, but I also make a point of wandering the outside aisles where I have found in the past more than a few excellent and money-saving solutions. Anyone care to chime in on what they hope to find at NAB?
Cheap and effective closed-captioning /transcription software for FCPX.
A bullet-proof, cheap, and simple bonded wireless (cell modem) video transmit/receive system.
A breakthrough in affordable NAS/ Servers.
That new Super 8 camera mentioned on the pro8mm website -- just bought the Rhonda cam
If you're going to be around at NAB I'd be happy to meet you - as one of the seven people on earth who still think film is a happening thing. I know from my friends who do museum work that when they really want something to last beyond their years, they transfer it to film. So there you go.
Unable to attend this year but would be very happy to send you my contact information if you like. Also found out that Super 16 cameras are still being made. Have never actually shot on film, just freelance camera operator and would love to expand out to other things. Anyways, glad to hear people archiving on film, no worries about a hard drive biting the dust or having to deal with a format codec that could go obselete.
