The New York DV Show 2002: Wow!DV Revolution Well Underway, FCP vs. Xpress DV 3 Battle Brewing
Just now I heard it from Rick Friedman, President of Mindshare Ventures and one of the organizers of the show. He was wowing about the attendance. "We've tapped into this huge pent-up interest for professionals seeking current and objective 'how to' information for Apple's Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects, Avid Xpress DV and Discreet." Rick and his crew had originally anticipated 2500 attendees. The count now stands well over 7000. "It's just exploded," said Friedman. "We have people from five countries and thirty-seven states. We're just the right show at the right time," he said.

"The future is not like the past," says Phil Hodgetts, a Final Cut Pro expert up here from down under. "I think we're seeing the beginning of the a video revolution equal to the desktop publishing revolution of the 80s. The tools will be in the hands of more people and DVD authoring and broadband will create new outlets for the products we create. In Final Cut Pro we have a video finishing tool that'll run on an average home computer."
