London Calling 2006

MC rebbe The Rapping Rabbi at London Calling 2006

Last week, London’s Earls Court played host to “London Calling,” a newish (as opposed to a Jewish) music biz conference/expo/ showcase that claims to be “the dynamic new international event for artists, managers, labels, service providers, brands and the new companies building the future of music business,” but which was so dominated by the net, that I kept thinking I was at a computer trade fair.

Phew Wow!

With 3 major expos in rapid succession, January is always a big month for all things tech, but January 2006 seems to be taking da cheesecake.

Before The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas had even opened its doors, manufacturers were already making product announcements…already… Continue reading “Phew Wow!”

The Equipment Show

Last weekend The British Society of Cinematographers held their annual ‘Equipment Show’ at Elstree Film and Television Studios’ Studio One…or as it has been renamed, ‘The George Lucas Stage’. Highlights included the new HD cameras from Arri and Panavision, whose differing design philosophies try to achieve the same end result of film quality images on digital video tape.

It is designed to take the full range of Panavision Primo lenses and because it features a single ‘full frame’ sensor, there is no magnification factor, which means that these lenses offer exactly the same focal length and depth of field as if used with a Panavision 35mm film camera.

Just One More Thing…

MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi.

But in the event…or before the events, January came early with an announcement by Yamaha that they had bought Steinberg, the makers of Cubase & Nuendo. Until a couple of years ago, Steinberg were an independent company, but shortly after Apple acquired Emagic (the makers of Emagic Logic…aka Apple Logic) video software company Pinnacle snapped them up…and despite lots of talk, did very little with the company. Steinberg & Yamaha are both audio technology innovators so what happens next should be something worth watching…though let’s not forget what happened the last time the Germans and the Japanese formed a partnership… Continue reading “Just One More Thing…”

Tech Heaven

Jewish Comedian MC Rebbe The Rapping Rabbi January is a big month for tech headz!

It all kicks off on January 6th with CES, otherwise known as The Consumer Electronics Show, in Sin City itself, Las Vegas. Sure the C is for Consumer, not creative, but there’s bound to be brand new creative technology on show, particularly on the video camera front, so pay attention from January 5th, the date on which some of the major manufacturers have press conference scheduled.
