Friendly Fires use SADiEs LRX2 Location Recorder For US Tour Posted: 07/05/2010
friendly fire sadie Live F.O.H mix engineer Richard Barling used a SADiE LRX2 location audio workstation on the recent three-week Friendly Fires tour of the United States.
 
"The LRX2 performed very well," Barling says. "I used it to both multitrack record the shows and 'virtual soundcheck' at soundcheck time. We ran 28 channels from stage, four lines of music and intro at F.O.H and two audience mics. In total, we recorded 36 channels every night via the two fibre optic MADI cables linked to a Soundcraft Vi6 local rack with MADI outs and one wordclock cable. The audio sounded great."

TIFFEN AND LFC SUPPORT FILTER FORUM Posted: 07/05/2010
filter forum Tiffen International and the London Filter Company (LFC) have announced their support for the Filter Forum (www.filterforum.co.uk). This includes contributing their technical expertise as well as sponsoring the site.
 
Terry Carey, MD Tiffen International, says of the Filter Forum. "Here is a great opportunity for all interested parties to get unbiased advice from world experts and the thousands of other filter users around the world. As never before, people today can shoot HD at low cost. A knowledge of filters will help make their results predictable and with the look they want."
 
The Filter Forum, launched in April, provides space for open discussion and sharing of knowledge about filters. Carey Duffy, Technical Director LFC, says, "Motion pictures are always shot using filters as is professional video footage and, perhaps to a lesser extent, stills photography. Now, thanks to the Canon 5D and others, a whole new section of photographers are now getting grips with HD. So now here is an area, DSLR-HD, that's very new and needs to know how to get the most out of this new medium. In all cases sharing knowledge at this forum will help everyone to understand how filters can help them. This is unique. It's going to help everyone."

Polecam proves The Boom is the Zoom at NAB 2010 Posted: 07/05/2010
polecam 3d head ">"You have the best 3D in the entire show," commented visitors to Polecam's demonstrations at the April 2010 NAB Convention in Las Vegas. With many exhibitors navigating through the minefield of shooting 3D through variable-magnification optics, Polecam clearly illustrated the advantages of deploying prime lenses and moving the cameras towards the subject rather than zooming into close-up.
