HP Show New, Cheaper Dreamcolor Displays
The DreamColor Z27x (US$1499) features 10-bit color and a 2560×1440 resolution anti-glare screen. It can accept 4K input, scaled to fit the screen or 1:1 pixel, allowing you to scroll around the larger image. The Z27x uses high quality IPS panels, 100 percent of sRGB, Adobe RGB, and presets for color spaces such as Rec709 and DCI-P3. The Z27x can connect directly to hardware calibration devices without the need to have software running on the host computer.
The 1920×1200 resolution DreamColor Z24x also features an IPS screen and 10-bit color, but doesn’t support no-host software calibration or 4K input. The new DreamColor Z24x costs US$599.

LaCie Uses 6TB Hard Drives For Massive Storage Gains
The 8Big Rack crams up to 48 Terabytes into a 1RU solution. Supporting RAID 5 or 6 the rack also features dual PSUs for full redundancy, the 8Big is expected to hit speeds of up to 1330MB/s.
Six can be daisy-chained together for a possible 288TB of online storage over a single Thunderbolt2 cable.
Expected to hit speeds of up to 1050MB/s over thunderbolt, the 5Big is capable of handling 4K video files and is the ideal companion for individuals or small production companies looking to expand their storage capability without the enterprise level price tag.
Expected to hit speeds of up to 420MB/s over thunderbolt, the 2Big is capable of handling uncompressed 2K or compressed 4K video and RAW photos files with no lag. It should also be very capable for ProTools users.
Convergent Design – Athena 4K Deck
Initial specs suggest it will play/record Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD and DPX files, much like the Odyssey series. The 1RU half rack width device features one 2.5″ SSD slot and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity which should make it easy integration into post facilities, multicam field production or digital signage applications.

Adobe Reveals CC Updates
Adobe describes its latest Creative CLoud updates as”The complete filmmaker’s tool kit”. Tighter integration between applications should mean faster more efficient workflows and makes a compelling case for an all Adobe workflow.
Most of the updates centre around the Premiere Pro editing application, allowing editors to tweak some After Effects parameters within the NLE. Improved media management tools will hopefully give editors some relief when managing large projects. Click Here For More Info
