I am jumping straight to Day 3, since Day 2 was rather uneventful, although I did attend the AJA party last night, which was quite the experience.
I have come across fewer items of interest since my last post, but there are a couple. Canon released two new revisions of their original HDV camera, the XL-H1. The XL-H1S is just a slightly improved version of the original, while the XL-H1A is the lower cost option without the profesional level SDI outputs.
Sony has a few other new releases. The SRW-5100 a new lower cost HDCam-SR ingest option. This will allow you to read tapes shot with the new F35, Sony’s new Genesis level, single sensor 35mm replacement camera. They also have a new 42″ addition to their Trimaster series, the BVM-L420. Also on display was an SxS recording option for the new PDW-700, allowing you to store 50Mbs MPEG2-422 to solid state.
One last NAB installment to come after tomorrow, when I hope to get a chance to explore the Panasonic and JVC booths, among other in the Central Hall.
