Every indication from accommodation bookings to event attendance suggests that this will be the year that NAB comes back from the doldrums. People are ready to talk business and spend money again.

Re Philip Hodgetts' take on P2:

I'm merely in the research mode on this new media, but I couldn't help noticing a few missing facts from Philip's self-described rant:

P2 chips are doubling in capacity every year, according to Panny's projections.

Not a word about the possibility of 3.5" & even possibly 2.5" drives plugging into the camera. This would keep the comparative camera price down and still have the media "good to go for editing." No, excuse me Mr. President, I have to


1 Hour of DVCProHD at 100mb/s takes up roughly 47GB

A 1 hour DVCProHD tape costs $80

A 60GB external drive can be purchased for less than $60.

So in the end, it is cheaper than buying tape.
You may want to read the "I'm excited about P2, no I'm not" thread, there are a lot of the same concerns being covered there.

You know. I finally did it. I've been waiting for this moment for years.

I accidently hit the "post direct" instead of another window button. You would have loved the classic slow mo: "NNNNnooooooooo!" around here.

Anyway, I'll finish up my post I repost. Don't look at the last one, ok?

Sorry,
RBG

No "Sorry, Mr. President, hold on a minute with the announcement we're bombing Canada, I've got to digitize my media"

And am I missing something here? Where does "And there's no backup. None. Nada, zip. You either keep it on the hard drive (expensive) or you have no backup" come from? This is backing up at faster than real time.

As Luis Caffesse writes in the P2 COW:

1 Hour of DVCProHD at 100mb/s takes up roughly 47GB

A 1 hour DVCProHD tape costs $80

A 60GB external drive can be purchased for less than $60.

I've seen tape degrade in as little as 10 years.

For all the positive speculating found in your article, advancing a little to P2 would've seemed in character.

I'm not a P2 or Panny guy, but thought the ommision strange enough to comment.

Hey wait a minute, I'm from Canada. Maybe we do need short P2 cards for Presidential announcements.

"omission" As in, no "COW edit-post button" is an omission.

Since I've set up tent around here, let me add that I found Philip's article very useful at NAB, saving me a heck of a lot of time running around in circles. Thanks, muchly for it.
