Kicking Other Video Editors’ Collective Asses

Good gawd! Are you realizing the magnitude of what Final Cut Extreme will bring to the table?

Final Cut 6 to usher in new video editing era for Apple

Apple is preparing to make a huge splash at the National Association of Broadcasters trade show this year, Think Secret has learned. Preliminary information from sources suggests that Apple will take advantage of the April show to demonstrate Final Cut Pro 6 to the public for the first time. Even more significant, Apple will use the stage to unveil Final Cut Extreme.

Besides the software: talk of a new display with 11+ million pixels to match 4520x2540 digital cinema camera resolution and possible debut of 10-gigabit ethernet!!? W-o-W!

But remember, FC Extreme might cost $10,000 a pop. That’s a whole different kind of W-o-W.

I would doubt that Mac hardware is quite capable of a full 10 GigE, nor would users be ready for the required fiber, but it’s already being used for inter-switch communication. So it won’t be too long before it will start appearing in desktops.

Uhm, the impending Yonah-powered machines very well might be capable of 10 GigE, and didn’t you see the projected price tag of FC Extreme? Any user ready to plop that much cash on a piece of software is likely not to have to bat an eyelash at a fiber network.

I would still be surprised if the backplane would support 10 GigE. The stuff we have that does it is very specialized. I’m not saying impossible, just unlikely.
