WORLD NEWS Atomos at Cine Gear Expo Atomos, the creator of the award-winning camera mounted recorders Ninja-2 and Samurai, and the pocket- sized Connect converters, demonstrated its full range of recorders and converters at Cine Gear Expo 2013 in May. Visitors to Cine Gear Expo in Los Angeles last month were able to see and touch the very first production units of the Samurai Blade the field recorder/monitor combo that caused such a stir when it was announced at this year’s NAB. The Blade as it’s already becoming affectionately known - features a stunning 1280 x 720 IPS SuperAtom touchscreen and is the first truly professional monitor that records to offer full waveform functionality, including vectorscope and RGB/luma parade displays. This new screen is truly spectacular, said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos, and it enables us to offer a comprehensive toolset that any test engineer would be proud of. www.atomos.com Flexible, reliable audio and video transport throughout Giro d’Italia coverage Successful UK launch of Pro Tools 11 L ondon’s broadcast, recording and audio post production communities turned out in large numbers as HHB Communications and Scrub, its Soho-based subsidiary specialising in serving the post production industry, hosted the UK launch of Avids Pro Tools 11.
