Thunderbolt technology allows for full capture and playback support.

Special guest Dan Lebental, A.C.E, will unveil TouchEdit, the first professional non-linear video editing system for the i-Pad. Lebental has edited feature films for more than 20 years and is best known for working with Jon Favreau (Iron Man, Cowboys & Aliens) TouchEdit was developed by Lebental to give editors the freedom to edit from anywhere. This new “edit bay” allows editors to cut video by using finger touch commands on tactile filmstrips, bringing the spirit of classical filmmaking together with cutting-edge digital editing capabilities. Complete with timecode and 8 tracks of stereo, the editor of the 21st Century can now edit on the road, on the set, or even on the couch! Lebental will be giving a full demonstration on how this new mobile application works with the traditional edit bay.
