A Look
With 2016 being its breakout year, 360° VR productions are everywhere. And VR headsets - like Samsung GearVR, Google Cardboard, or Oculus Rift - are making it a quality, immersive experience. But what's going on "behind-the-scenes"? ASSIMILATE is at the forefront of supporting VR with its new SCRATCH VR Suite that includes all the post tools - conform, color grading, compositing, and finishing - to work in 360° media, and includes SCRATCH Play for playback and SCRATCH Web cloud-based collaboration and review tools that are automatically formatted for 360° viewing in VR headsets.

Content Insider #460 - Producing Dreams
I'm a slow learner. It dawned on my at NAB we differentiate between filmmakers and indie filmmakers. But when studios cut back to their content buying/selling/distribution core everyone in the industry (ok almost) is an independent. Shooter, production, post, audio, special effects, colorists, everything. And guess what...they're darn good at it. They do it with a desire to tell a story - audio and visual. They have developed one of the finest coopetive industries you can find anywhere - working to tell their story and helping others tell theirs. Gawd I love this industry! Read More

Content Insider #458 - NAB Beauty
The M&E industry is in the middle of massive reinvention to meet people's increasing demands - 4K, HDR, VR and last but not least ATSC 3.0 (better pipe delivery). Not only is everyone trying to figure out how to make a buck on all of that good content they'll be determining how to get it to the video hungry consumer and still keep it safe enough to monitize. Cameras are going to be outstanding at this year's NAB, workflow is going to be better/faster. Drones will be swooping around giving us super views of the storyline. Audio tools are going to add impact and life to the films. And beyond the mundane business side of the industry VR (Virtual Reality) will put people in the very center of the action with immersive content. It's a great, challenging time to be in the industry. Read More
