The annual Adobe MAX show draws a huge crowd of creatives from all fields eager to learn about the latest innovations in Adobe’s products. But the show also attracts many big names in tech, from Google to Microsoft, who are eager to show off their new products to such a large audience of creative power users. After browsing the show floor, getting hands-on demos, and speaking with representatives, here are what we found to be the best photo and video products at Adobe MAX 2017.Best software: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CCWell, duh. We couldn’t go to MAX and not expect to see great new things from the company that puts it on. Adobe unveiled many new tools and technologies at the show, but the completely redesigned Lightroom CC is the most important for photographers (and, perhaps, the most controversial).With an emphasis on unifying interfaces across devices, Lightroom CC presents a completely revamped UI with a much sleeker, more modern appearance. compared to the … [Read more...] about 6 best products showcased at Adobe MAX 2017 conference
To achieve the kind of high-quality production you see on TV, such as news broadcasts, networks use lots of large, sophisticated, and expensive equipment in a studio environment. But the new TriCaster Mini from NewTek makes that all unnecessary, as it lets you create a complete production studio, anywhere – and you don’t even need to know a thing about TV production.Billed as the “world’s most complete and compact multimedia studio,” the TriCaster Mini is a small computer that’s portable, and takes less than five minutes to set up. “Our goal is to dispel the myth that it’s too technologically difficult or expensive to produce engaging multimedia content,” said NewTek’s president and CTO, Dr. Andrew Cross.You can create a studio in any room or outdoors simply by using a green screen, and replace the plain background by superimposing the subject in front of a graphic, whether it’s an ESPN SportsCenter-style studio or a … [Read more...] about NewTek democratizes video production with TriCaster Mini all-in-one TV studio
Looking back at last week, it was a combination of news from the past and news from the future.Starting out the week, we had the EU ruling come down against Microsoft. I think if the company is smart, it can actually play this to its advantage (silly bureaucrats) and actually benefit from the ruling.What took up most of my week was the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) which, like most events of its type, exists one or two years in the future.There were a number of interesting things out of IDF, but two that could change the world as we know it were Larrabee -- which could obsolete both processors and graphics cards -- and the advent of the 3-D Web, which could obsolete every Web site on the planet -- even this one -- in Internet time.We'll close with our product of the week, which is an offering that launched today that is the first real example of this 3-D Web and it potentially could become as big as YouTube or MySpace is.There were three interesting aspects to the judgment that Microsoft … [Read more...] about OPINION Intel’s Larrabee and UMPC Will Rock Your Virtual World, Microsoft’s EU Win, Product of the Week
Smartphones appear to be losing their luster, and the king of smartphones -- Apple -- clearly is not having a good year. Suddenly, I'm hearing that there is an upswing in flip phones, making this feel a bit like a Game of Thrones episode, when a believed-dead king returns to seize the throne by surprise. (We are still talking small numbers, so you Apple folks don't have to jump out of windows yet.)Clearly, the market is looking for the next big thing. There was a lot to love about the flip phone, and phones have been a rather fluid environment for a time. Palm and RIM (now BlackBerry) took the market from Motorola, and Apple took the market from Palm and BlackBerry, only to face a largely successful attack by Google. Microsoft, long thought to be invincible, turned out not to be.I'll share some thoughts about what it would take to bring the flip phone back as a power and then close with my product of the week: some earplugs that could save your marriage. Apple flipped the market … [Read more...] about OPINION Could the Next Disruptive Consumer Product Be a Flip Phone?
