Linkage: April 2010 – an abbreviated NAB, iPad edition

Here’s an abbreviated April linkage. With NAB 2010 right in the middle of the month there hasn’t been much time to collect links.

FreshDV has all the video coverage from NAB 2010 so there won’t be a lot of links here as they cover almost everything cool.

Pro Video Coalition posted a lot in NAB RealTime as well.

The big Adobe CS5 launch is all right here.

Avid introduced Media Composer 5. Here’s a good, shaky feature video.  Avid also did a “cloud” based, online browser based editing demo that was very cool. A podcast is available here.

You can now get a Matrox MXO2 Mini and have it work with the Media Composer 5.

DaVinci Resolve is now cheap. There’s a COW discussion on using it with a RED Rocket as well.

Hmm, an HD field monitor made especially for DSLRs.

Maybe there will be an iPad color grading surface.
