A Discussion With David Newman, CTO of Cineform
When I was preparing to make my film ?Fiesta Grand I made plans to edit the entire HDV film using the Adobe Production Studio. I just loved how all the programs got along.
One thing I was missing was a way to get my 24p HDV footage onto my laptop to review and work on my assembly. I really wanted to capture the footage in as high quality as I could. One thing though; my laptop was a few years old and didnt have pci express slots needed to use some of the great products from AJA or Blackmagic Design. Hmm what to do?
Luckily I happened to be reading an article in Post Magazine about a documentary that I really enjoyed called ?Dust to Glory. It talked about a digital intermediary called Cineform Prospect HD that promised "visually lossless" compression technology in HD 10-bit 4:2:2. Nice. I decided to download the demo and do a test. I was impressed to say the least. Also I didnt need to install any hardware that my antiquated machine couldnt use.
Needless to say, I captured and worked with Cineform Prospect HD and was most pleased. I was happy to get Cineforms CTO David Newman on the show for today to discuss whats going on down by the ocean at Cineforms HQ. Enjoy.
