    I'd also point out that slashcam.de was largely comparing EFX processing times, not decoding or playback or scrub speed. What are the deltas between the laptops listed for smooth playback FPS in...

    I wonder if they can fit 16 high performance cores/16 graphics cores/64GB RAM in a single 5nm process SOC? That could be juicy.

    Theoretically, with the low TDP of the ASi SOCs, you could do a...

    To be clear, I never meant to imply that everybody's favorite software will be humming along on ASi overnight. What I am saying is that Apple's SOC solution, as mapped out by sites like Anandtech,...

    I'd hope that RED engineers have already been working on tools for RED workflows on ARM ASi Macs. Apple is committed to their new SOC architecture and working with RED to optimize code for it is a...

    Apple, my back thanks you...

    The MBP is 500nits vs 400 for the Air. To me, the biggest advantage of the MBP is the cooling fan - especially if you intend to use it for RED workflows. And not just because the M1 chip should...

    Thanx for the info on evolving Dolby Vision protocols in the new normal. I'll endeavor to keep up ;-)

    Agreed. I was just pointing out that the Dell "claims" enough contrast ratio to meet one spec, didn't mean to ignore the collateral damage of local dimming zones. My assumption is that dual screen...

    Oh Bruce, Bruce, Bruce... trying to apply logic to marketing... ;-)

    Kidding aside, it is a strange value proposition when a device intended for a specific purpose - HDR/rec2020(100% P3)...

    Just rewatched Se7en last week. Really noticed how Darius played textures, often with raking light angles and dark surrounds. I thought it reflected the importance of details, which was also a story...

    BMD, good on ya

    Not surprisingly, the dual gain architecture of the ARRI Alexa shines in over/under tests.

    Based solely on demo footage, the BMD UMP 12K shows excellent resolution and DR. Chart colors, via ACES...

    RTX Studio Laptop

    Interested in any notes on the new Turing based Nvidia RTX laptops.

    The ASUS ProArt StudioBook One has impressive specs with a $10K price tag.

    I wouldn't worry about the bit depth and DR on Komodo vs Gemini/any DSMC2. The real issue for your use case would be frame rates. IAC, I expect your biggest issue in the transition from the VaricamLT...

    I spend hours with the Edmunds catalogs, would be sweet to actually interact with the optics. Kind of like putting down the magazine and going to the mansion in person. RIP Hef.

    With all the AR/MR development going on, I think we will see "viewfinder glasses" come to market. I encourage anyone designing such a product to offer multiple viewing states/presets as well as deep...

    SDI, Triax, Fiber - Oh My

    SDI is fine if the runs aren't too long and the cables are high quality. In many of the live shows I've worked, they also expect to have video return - so you can see what the current live shot is...

    None of the 7" on board monitors I've seen pass muster for critical color/contrast. FWIW, I think they are engineered with other priorities at the forefront. IAC, unless you have a proper hood,...

    Hate noisy monitors. You can put everything but the monitor/keyboard/mouse/control surface/etc in another room - but if the devices that have to be nearby are whiny, you're boned.

    Thanx Jeffery and Rand for the notes on LED dimming zones. It's particularly interesting since the XDR got dinged for haloing artifacts in dark surrounds - something easily seen in the Flanders A/B...
