    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."

      HooToo Shuttle 3 Port USB Type C Hub review

      July 26, 2017, 5:19 am
      One advantage of Apple equipping the latest MacBook Pro models solely with USB-C is that each port can multi-task. Power, video, and data can all pass through an adapter connected to a single port. For photographers and videographers, this is a bittersweet change: losing the built-in SD card reader on older Mac laptops is awfully inconvenient, but now a single device can handle several tasks.

      Daily Debate: Animation with Live-action?

      July 26, 2017, 5:18 am
      Way back in 1918, Max Fleischer gave us Out of the Inkwell, a series of shorts featuring Koko the Clown. Koko was an animated character interacting with live action people on screen. Audiences flocked to this rotoscoped novelty. In 1923, Walt Disney turned the idea around when he put Alice, a live action girl, into a cartoon world. Since then, there have been numerous attempts to combine animated characters into live-action films.

      Color Grade Sunset Shots in Premiere and AE

      July 26, 2017, 5:18 am
      The classic sunset shot that closes out the day or the entire narrative of your film is a cinematic staple. Whether you want your characters sitting on the beach, standing on top of a building, or riding off into the sunset, capturing the shot is the first step in the process. Because sunsets are so wildly different from one another, they all need different color grading. Here are a few different ways to color grade your sunset in Premiere Pro and After Effects.
