    Boston University Installs Blackmagic Design

    June 16, 2011, 10:55 am
    Milpitas, CA – June 15, 2011 – Blackmagic Design today announced that Boston University's College of Communication (COM) is using Blackmagic Design's ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and ATEM 1 M/E Broadcast Panel in their Production and Journalism studios.
    The studios are extensively used by hundreds of students and faculty in both course and extracurricular
    applications, specifically butv10 and butv10.com, the University’s student produced campus channel and
    website. In addition, numerous production professionals in the Greater Boston area rent the facilities.



    The ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher and Broadcast Panel are at the heart of COM’s two full production
    studios. They are being used for everything from butv10’s live programming to the seven other studio based
    series in production, including the 2011 Telly Award winning On That Point. "The ATEM products allow us
    greater dexterity in our production capability," said Assistant Professor Christophor Cavalieri, butv10’s faculty
    advisor. "They are great tools to train the next generation of multi camera production professionals."



    The transition to the ATEM hardware was seamless, with students and technical staffers completing production
    of weekly shows and other major projects after a single training session. COM’s Post Production Specialist Jake
    Kassen explained, "These studios are professional environments outfitted with top of the line equipment, which
    now includes a fully functional switcher and panel that are simple enough to both learn and teach."



    He continued, "The ATEM 1 M/E Production Switcher’s numerous inputs and outputs allow users to customize
    their workflows, and the Broadcast Panel is so intuitive, it takes the hands on learning experience to new
    heights." Students from around the country attending this summer’s Academy of Media Production (AMP)
    program at COM will be working with ATEM. AMP is a nationally acclaimed program for high school students
    interested in exploring educational and professional opportunities in media production. Kassen added, "As we
    prepare for the Academy of Media Production, we know we selected the right quality equipment to give these
    young students the best production experience possible."

      Best VHS Glitch Effects for AE and Premiere

      July 20, 2018, 10:46 am
      Gone are the days of being asked to be kind, rewind a video before returning the tape to the rental shop, or putting the tapes in the VHS cleaner to try and squeeze a few more plays out of them. And oh, the fragility: as you played a VHS tape more and more, it developed flaws and imperfections, changing the image itself.

      10 Reasons FCPX Stands Out

      July 19, 2018, 12:16 pm
      Final Cut Pro X has been churning out some great, pro-focused updates in the last year or so. With the addition of some killer color tools, HDR, and now ProRes RAW support, FCPX is shaping up to be a real contender in the world of NLEs. However, it’s not always about the new fancy codec support or the robust new finishing tools and motion graphics.
