Early yesterday at IBC, Adobe announced major updates to Adobe Video apps in Creative Cloud for mid-October. There's more news from Adobe and partner HP on support for Thunderbolt on Windows, and a testing demo from DAV's TechTable on 4K in Premiere with HP Thunderbolt.
Adobe's Dave Helmly shares some more info on 4K — on a laptop and a wokstation — and other news too (via @kev_mon). Go to the bottom of his page to find steps for “How to setup your drives to be compatible on Mac & Windows via ExFAT” and avoid text inspired by the Windows 3.1 Hot Dog Stand color theme!
Allan Tépper has some details in HP does Thunderbolt! Yes! here on PVC. Note also that Fusion-io Accelerates New HP ZBook Mobile Workstations with Fusion ioFX, something of interest to After Effects users.
Here's Dave Helmly with the goods:
Comments from Dave:
This means that you can now have a Workstation with Dual Intel E5 2620 processors, 512GB RAM, Internal 4 drive raid, Blueray drive, choice of video card like the NVIDIA GeForce 690/Titan/ Quadro K6000 w/12GB RAM, Atto Raid card, RED Rocket, and THUNDERBOLT for sharing TB devices and drives. Wow !! – and all from a single desktop tower and one AC Power plug !!
The new workflow where using a Laptop that can edit 4K rough cuts on set via Thunderbolt storage like the Promise Pegasus series or the new G-Tech EV series and sharing that drive on your Thunderbolt equipped Z820 makes the workflow more like older firewire 1394 based workflows. Hint: You can format these drives to work on both Mac & Windows giving you even more flexibility with our apps (ExFAT).
