Back From Launch
Pinnacle Systems invited industry's East Coast
heavyweights to see and talk about their new software product called
Edition, at Tribeca Grand Hotel in Manhattan yesterday. Videoguys' Gary Bettan
reports on DV-L:
I went to the Pinnacle launch event last night for Edition. Things
are about to get really exciting. Some of you (especially those in Europe)
may be a bit familiar with what was Fast Studio DV. Edition is the next
evolution of the product. Here are just a few of the features I like best:
Pinnacle's got a new weapon in
it's arsenal. It's going to be a fun summer!

There's a new factor rearing its head concerning film, storage, HDTV and
A few days ago, a lady physicist called Lene Hau of Harvard announced she
managed to stop light in a sodium compound. Sounds rather esoteric BUT, if
light, normally going at 300.000 kilometers a second is stopped, it follows that
it also can be modulated. Speculating, she mentioned quantum computers, CD's
with TerraTerrabytes capacity, video cameras with sheer unlimited recording
parameters, making continuous holographic display and transmission possible.
There were many more speculations by other scientists but the above are of
specific interests to us.
She hesitated calling it a miracle but implied that it (might) bypass the
notion that the speed of light is a unchangeable standard. Roll over, Albert.
Imagine, DV cam with chips recording 100.000 lines...
We live in interesting times.
Editor's P.S. Also on DV-L, Rune Hansen
pointed out to an article
in NY Times describing Dr. Hau's earlier work.
According to Chuckmeister (supervideo.com/dvnewsii.htm),
"Sony distribution has just passed a whole slew of PC110's through
customs... they are on their way to your loading dock... watch for them
anytime now even this week!"
Chucky is clued-in with the airline industry and recently acquired a
penthouse apartment near O'Hairy Apt. ... with his 1000x telescope, he can
probably read the serial numbers of those PC110's...
People on DV-L:
2 way Sat System in Gilroy, CA, up & running
Nick Schlott, one of the main brains behind Premiere, today
inaugurated his 2-way internet satellite system at his home in Gilroy, CA. The
town, formerly known for its garlic production, will now be the center of
2-way-net-sat for the people. At least, for people like Nick.
Mind you folks, this is not your daddy's sat-down-POTS-up NetPC.
This is bona-fide 2-way stuff, formerly reserved for gadzillionaires who could
afford Vsat. If you are living in a rural area, and if you are sick of BackBell
asking you "DSL-what?" - check out starband.com.
Not quite as fast as DSL or Cable, but definitely better than that wire with the
15 loading coils in it they call a phone line.
