NAB 2014 is upon us; a couple more days, and I hope that flight to Vegas. So once we get there, what can we expect to see from GoPro? Take a look:
Enhance Pro Shoots with New Dual HERO3+ System, Stutter-Free Playback Software, More Powerful Protune Settings and All New Flexible Mounts
GoPro to Feature Renowned Filmmakers, Directors and GoPro Media Production Team in Special NAB Booth Presentations
SAN MATEO, CA (March 31, 2014) – GoPro, maker of the Emmy® Award-winning HERO camera and enabler of some of today’s most engaging professional video content, will debut new software and flexible mounts for the HERO3+ optimized for professional filmmakers, cinematographers and post production studios at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas next week.
In its booth #C6537 in the Central Hall of the LVCC, GoPro will demonstrate:
Dual HERO System: The new 3D System designed for GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition will enable users to record synchronized 2D videos and convert to 3D files using free GoPro Studio editing software. The Dual HERO System will also allow users to simultaneously capture video with one camera and shoot time-lapse photos with the second. Available in spring.
GoPro App: Updated version of the free iOS and Android app delivers wireless camera software updates to the HERO3+ camera firmware and control new HERO3+ camera modes. Users can now also adjust and control all Protune settings from their iOS device for ultimate image control during a shoot.
HERO3+ Camera Software: Free update for HERO3+ Black and Silver cameras delivers:
New Protune settings that offer unprecedented customization options, enabling users to independently manage color, ISO limit, sharpness and exposure in addition to white balance
New 1080-60/1080-50 SuperView modes for HERO3+ Black Edition cameras
New Auto Low Light modes that support higher frame rate modes for HERO3+ Black Edition cameras
A wider field of view on all camera modes for HERO3+ Silver cameras
GoPro Player: A new desktop software application for Mac or PC that delivers a stutter-free playback solution for all GoPro content. Available in spring, the GoPro Player will optimize high-data rate GoPro content for smooth playback to deliver the best possible viewing experience. Features will include playback speed controls for fast or slow motion, the ability to play back Time Lapse and Burst Photo sequences as videos, and export full-resolution still photos from videos for photo prints or easy sharing. GoPro Player is ideal in a professional production environment, for previewing on set dailies in full 2.7k resolution or for reviewing footage seamlessly while prepping for post in the edit bay.
GoPro will also show a variety of new mounting systems for the HERO3+ optimized for cinematographers and videographers, including the new Jaws Flex Clamp and a variety of quick-release tripod mounts.
Shane Hurlbut, ASC is a world-renowned cinematographer with 18 feature films to his credit, including the recently released Need for Speed. Shane has depended on the GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition for capturing some of his most challenging, visually exhilarating car chase scenes throughout the film. "When I need a shot that is cut from a different cloth, never seen, or in harms way, I turn to the GoPro HERO3+,” says Hurlbut. “Its compact nature and near indestructibility expands my creativity and pushes me as an artist.”
GoPro will also feature a special lineup of industry renowned filmmakers and directors as well as members of the GoPro Media Production team in a series of special presentations in the GoPro Booth throughout the week. In their presentations, these filmmakers will share their insights, perspectives and the impact of the GoPro HERO3+ in their professional pipelines. The schedule of presentations includes:

It's only a few days before we all head to Vegas for the annual gathering. The show we love to complain about, but admittedly, wouldn't miss for the world. Once a year, we all get together at the LVCC to see what unfolds; and to see old friends.
And there's one guy (actually, it's an entire team) who pours more heart and soul into NAB than anyone I know. Larry Jordan.
Larry's been prepping for this NAB....well, since last NAB. And he's put together another amazing show - even bigger and more ambitious than last year.
So if you're going to the show, stop by the booth and listen in and say hi. If you can't make it, you have to tune in!
See you in Vegas!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Premier News Podcast of NAB 2014 to Feature Over 80 Influential Interviews with Production, Post Production and Filmmaking Who’s-Who
Comedic Actor Corey Roberts Joins Larry Jordan as Roving Reporter
Burbank, CA (March 31 , 2014) – Larry Jordan & Associates, Inc. and the Digital Production BuZZ (www.digitalproductionbuzz.com) has finalized its industry all-star guest line up for its live audio news podcast of NAB 2014 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. From its booth #SL11505, the Digital Production BuZZ will be delivering live interviews with the production and post production industry’s most influential players.

"The Buzz is bringing its largest team ever to NAB - almost 30 people," said Larry Jordan, executive producer and host of the Digital Production Buzz. "Our industry changes so quickly that it is impossible for one person to see and learn everything. Our goal is to provide a clear understanding of the new products, product trends and industry leaders that our audience can rely on as they make critical business decisions during the upcoming year. In today's changing economic environment, buying the wrong gear at the right time can be disastrous."
The Digital Production BuZZ also announced that comedic actor, Corey Roberts, will join Larry as a roving reporter during the conference, adding some comedy relief and outsider’s perspective during the trade show. Corey has most recently appeared commercials for Cricket Mobile and Aamco, as well as the spoof web series CSU: Crime Stoppers Unit, http://blip.tv/csucrimestoppersunit/csu-episode-0-6504703. Look for him later this year in the comedy web series T-WATS Paranormal Investigators.
