It's the fact that all of your devices go into a single box, the DS1, and that they don't need any configuration at all, that makes this a must-have device." Read the full review here.

Phillip Hodgetts writes about multicam editing and how it has gone from a specialized field to an ubiquitous skill set. He writes, "It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got the expensive cameras, or a couple of DSLRs with separate audio, synchronizing by audio means anyone can do multicam, with all its advantages. Multicam makes it much easier to edit, having two angles (or more) to select from to disguise an edit point in an interview, for example." Read his full post here.

Scott Simmons of Pro Video Coalition writes up his expectations and hopes for new iPad editing app, TouchEdit. He writes, "We know that the creators were Avid Media Composer people, not just because Dan [Lebental] is a feature film editor but because much of TouchEdit looks to be Media Composer inspired. It the app really will track timecode (as they say) then I hope we could see some type of Avid-friendly export as well, like AAF. Back to that dream of assembling a rough edit on the couch and sending that list back to Media Composer to relink to my original media." Read his full post here.
