Apple, Final Cut Pro X and ProRes RAW at IBC 2018 in September

Going to IBC 2018 in Amsterdam next month? IBC is the main European event where the TV industry get together to learn about high-end broadcasting technology.

As usual Apple won’t have a stand. The good news is that Apple will be giving presentations about their professional video editing application. The Final Cut Pro X focus point on the show floor is the Atomos stand – D.25 in Hall 11.

Atomos will demonstrate the Final Cut Pro X ProRes RAW workflow from capture to HDR monitoring.

They will have a Final Cut Pro X advanced broadcast workflows theatre: a series of presentations by international professionals about how well the recent updates to Final Cut Pro X support high-end workflows. This is being delivered by London-based Soho Editors.

Apple Product Marketing are presenting every day from Friday September 14th to Tuesday September 18th.

Some presentation titles:

  • Final Cut Pro X – A more powerful take on post-production – presented by Apple Product Marketing
  • Final Cut Pro X – Advanced colour grading
  • Closed Captions in Final Cut Pro X – presented by Apple Product Marketing
  • HDR Workflows in Final Cut Pro X
  • Shooting ProRes RAW with Pansonic’s EVA 1 Cinema Camera
  • Sony FS5 II ProRes Raw
  • Motion 5 – Motion Graphics in action

The full agenda is on the Soho Editors site.

You might also bump into Ronny Courtens and Sam Mestman from LumaForge. LumaForge make advanced workgroup servers for post production that connect to Macs using 10 gigabit and 40 gigabit Ethernet cables. Ronny writes:

Sam and I will frequently be on the Atomos booth. Special LumaForge demos will be in our off-site demo room on an invitation-only basis. If you would like to see the JellyFish at work with our brand-new management software, drop me an e-mail.

Lumberjack System is a method for making the most of information known while shooting when in the Final Cut Pro X edit. If you would like to schedule a one-on-one with the experts at Lumberjack System, they have a booking page on their site.

I’ll update this post when I hear about more Final Cut related activities at IBC 2018.

If you haven’t registered for IBC 2018 yet, be quick – the free exhibition pass deadline is almost up.
