Videoguys To 10 Products of 2011
For the past 16 years, has awarded the top video editing
and production products and is pleased to announce the winners of the
“Videoguys' Top 10 Products of 2011.” Gary Bettan (a.k.a. The
Videoguy), calls 2011 "The Year of the X" as in Apple FCPX and X-
grades (crossgrades) like those offered by Avid, Adobe, Sony and Grass
Valley. As we all know, FCPX released without several must-have
features (Multicam, MXF import/export and 3rd party hardware support
to name a few). That left professional post houses no choice but to
investigate alternative products for their facilities. Avid and Adobe
seized this opportunity to aggressively go after frustrated and
disgruntled FCP editors with new crossgrade campaigns.

As we do every year, our Top 10 article finishes off with a wish list
of new products and technologies we hope to see have an impact in
2012. You can read the complete article here

Videoguys Guide to Thunderbolt
Thunderbolt is a new, high-speed, dual-protocol I/O technology
designed by Intel and introduced by Apple that delivers amazing
performance, with ease & simplicity. It makes attaching Thunderbolt
enabled storage and I/O cards a breeze. All of the current Apple
iMacs, MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs and Mac Minis have Thunderbolt.
Today’s iMacs with Thunderbolt no longer have the drawback of limited
upgradeability. They are easily expandable and support video capture
and output as well as professional RAID storage solutions.

The first Thunderbolt devices are starting to ship!
• We have the Matrox MXO2 family of I/O devices with Thunderbolt
in stock
• The AJA Io XT is now shipping! Io XT gives you all the features and
performance of a Kona 3G card in an external Thunderbolt
• Motu HDX-SDI with Thunderbolt announced at CES, coming this spring
• G-Tech G-Raid Thunderbolt is coming soon.
• Thunderbolt is coming to PCs in 2012!

year of Thunderbolt!
