With the arrival of April, the month of filming at RedShark appears, and with it comes the future. And once again NAB came to us.
Cinematography Month gave us a chance to look at how technology is changing the way DPs work. Neil Oseman looks at apps. many that allow for the pre-image of the shot. Includes augmented reality software with virtual stand-ins. What makes this new world even more interesting is that this is all software available to any one of us.
Neil wrote: “The rise of VFX in filmmaking has worried some DPs, feeling that visual creativity is being taken away from them. This current may change. Virtual production technology allows DPs to see all the images they are shooting. Not just a green screen which may or may not be replaced with the background they expect. And if the DP can previz shot in 3D on the phone quickly. It opens up even more synergies than the current standard previz tool is only available to VFX teams.”

AI risks for accuracy
Meanwhile, David Shapton examines the impact of AI on visual fidelity. As smartphones and other devices turn to AI to produce images of superior quality than the sensor used to capture them. How much can we trust what we see?
This has a specific subdivision for legal evidence. What We Also Consider About Video Compression But what if someone photographed a crime that happened with their phone? And the image modified by AI techniques can be considered accurate and true or not?
David writes: “I feel that the video for the evidence has to be ‘clean’ and not processed by AI. can always come up Unless specifically instructed not to do so
It’s early, and the law (and politics) has always lagged behind technology. So get ready for some “interesting” legal cases.

RedShark back to school
The month of filming continues with an in-depth look at the academy’s role in nurturing new talent. RedShark’s Maari Innes looks at what the university offers. and the relevance of the topics and the experience they provide in the real world.
“This is because the industry is constantly evolving due to new and improved technologies. The challenge is finding the right equipment and suitable for educational purposes. Powerful, scalable, and cost-effective visual technology presence that allows students to learn to use the latest technology to equip them with the skills they need to enter the industry. Most importantly Giving students the freedom to create their own work It gives them the confidence and motivation they need to launch their careers. speaking as a former student You really learn by doing, and having the opportunity to learn using industry-standard equipment is the key to doing so.”

Why are modern interfaces sometimes slow?
From a technology standpoint, Phil Rhodes decided to explain something many of us ask ourselves: why, despite the processing speed of computers, they still have the same processing speed? But is the user interface sometimes sluggish and slow?
The reasons for this appear to be many and not straightforward. Suffice it to say that while processing is much faster Data loading and code complexity have increased exponentially since the old ZX Spectrum.
To give one example of what’s going on under the hood, Phil wrote,modern computer including the phone Multiple layers of code Most of which exceed the ZX Spectrum’s memory limits hundreds of times between the hardware that reads the touch screen and the hardware that drives the display. Worse, some code may be written in an interpretable language, such as Java (on Android) or C# (on Windows), or the language that caused endless debate, how to interpret it: Objective-C (on iOS). This interpreted language trades computer time with programmer time. Makes it easier to write code but works slower which is Faustian’s bargain.”

DaVinci Resolve 18 Releases Public Beta
Black Magic Design’s DaVinci Resolve gets a major update with version 18 entering the public beta. Those familiar with the company’s public betas will know that the software is generally fairly reliable. Resolve version 18 offers many new capabilities using the software’s Neural Engine.
Collaboration gets more streamlined And the company has brought in Blackmagic Cloud to eliminate the need to rely on third parties for such projects. With Resolve 18, you can also live-stream 12-bit footage anywhere in the world for client-level monitoring.
New AI-powered features include animal and object recognition for quick masking. and a new depth map effect to separate the alignment of the foreground from the background among many other things.

April means NAB.
After a long hiatus, NAB Show is finally back in business. And for this reason, Virtual Production is very important. Due to the heavy impact of COVID on the visual arts industry. As such, there has been a lot of debate about the future role of the big trade show. However, as anyone attending NAB’s confirmation, it’s wonderful to experience so many faces in person once again.
Maybe the show isn’t as grand as it used to be. But the technology shown is not lacking. Phil Rhodes considers the role of motion control in virtual manufacturing. including various technologies In a show that drives the latest volume LEDs
The success of this year’s show bodes well for next year. When we will start the cycle again!

NAB 2022: We Discuss Video Over IP with Matrox
When it comes to NAB, we also have a good conversation. Dan Maloney from Matrox Video Over IP is another hot technology in 2022. Dan walks us through the latest developments at Matrox, including the ConvertIP system, which can take an SDI or HDMI signal and convert it to a signal for video over IP. Pass through the IP network and vice versa with zeros. Latency and resolution up to 4K
