In the 1970's video editing was primitive and film production ruled the scene. Several film editing manufacturers produced editing tables. In Europe, king of the roost was Steenbeck. The company offered a flatbed editing table with excellent image display, and various models with up to 6 or 8 plates available, so that one could load up separate film reels and separate sprocketed mag striped tape to quickly access content and build a production.

The management team at Avid has spent a lot of time spreading a message about a new "openness" initiative at the company, and one of the first concrete embodiments of that philosophy is the decision to support customers' use of Final Cut Pro on Avid's Unity MediaNetwork and Isis shared-storage systems. (Avid doesn't want to say which third-party tools, specifically, they're looking at now, but the most logical next step would be to qualify Adobe's CS4 suite of creative apps.) StudioBytes...

I met with Michael Berenbaum today at 3PM. The talk went great! He's very engaging and open! I met him at 3PM and then found that the DGA didn't have WIFI.
