    Technology companies - who's who?

    March 19, 2013, 1:17 pm
    A few weeks ago I wrote about how Apple's corporate definition has changed over the years. I took the definition from the paragraph that appears at the end of each press release the text that explains to the media the nature of the company that issued the information. Here's a quiz that demonstrates how...

      Animation tools not ready for satire prime time

      July 27, 2017, 5:32 am
      If you had an almost unlimited budget, could you produce a rich feed of animated satirical videos with a one-day turnaround? For now the answer seems to be no. When HBO announced a deal with American satirist Jon Stewart in 2015, one of the shows mentioned was an animated comedy show. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that in May this year, HBO said that they would not be going ahead with the idea: Stewart was set to work with cloud-graphics company OTOY to develop new technology that...

      What versions of Final Cut Pro X are compatible with macOS High Sierra? During Apple’s 2017 Worldwide Developer Conference, macOS High Sierra was announced. Apple has a public beta test programme, where you can sign up to try early versions of Apple operating systems before they are released.  macOS High Sierra is supposed to a version of the Mac operating system that consolidates on previous features and stability.

      Investigate HEVC/H.265 encoding using free chapter

      June 28, 2017, 5:19 am
      Apple have decided to stadardise on HEVC/H.265 video encoding in macOS High Sierra and iOS 11. Jan Ozer has written a book about how to encode video using the free FFmpeg encoding system. He has made the chapter on HEVC encoding from the book free to download: Below you can download a sample chapter of my new book, Learn to Produce Video with FFmpeg in 30 Minutes or Less. It’s Chapter 12 Encoding HEVC If you have already installed FFmpeg (which includes the libx265 encoder), visit ...

      Apple’s HEVC choice: Codec battle 2018?

      June 21, 2017, 9:39 am
      What does Apple’s choice of HEVC (H.265) mean for developers, users, viewers and streamers? Jan Ozer writes that it will take a year a so to find out. His predictions include: No major publishers implement HEVC/HLS support before 3-6 months after iOS 11/MacOS Sierra ship. This leaves the door open for a full codec analysis between AV1 and HEVC, including encode and decode requirements, hardware support, cost, IP risk, HDR support, software support, the whole nine yards. At least in the...

      HDR production: Five concepts, 10 principles

      June 20, 2017, 6:09 am
      It is likely that the next major versions of common NLEs will support HDR. As editors we will be asked about the right HDR workflow. For now it is a matter of picking a standard, following some guidelines and maintaining metadata. Jan Ozer writes: HDR sounds complex, and at a technical level it is. Abstractly, however, it involves just five simple concepts. First, to acquire the expanded brightness and color palette needed for HDR display, you have to capture and maintain your video in ...
