COMMENT ON VIDEO "Watching various TWiT shows over the past week, there's been a lot of debate about whether or not anyone will use the improved camera in the new iPad. The use case I'm surprised I haven't heard mentioned is creating multi-cam 1080p videos with an iPhone, an iPad and Final Cut Pro X. Apple recently updated Final Cut to include multi-cam support, and it can automatically sync source videos by evaluating the audio from each. With the dramatic price reduction of Final Cut last year, someone interested in creating quality video now has a very low barrier to entry, especially if they already own the iPhone and/or iPad. Maybe the camera in the new iPad isn't meant to sell iPads; it's meant to sell Final Cut. -Justin" Final Cut Pro X + the new iPad

SHOW 88 COMMENTS "With the new iPad there seems to be great opportunity for Electronic News Gathering. Reporters could record and edit news in 1080p and post from the site. Hmm... only thing missing is good audio. I googled iRig, but the reviews (on Amazon at least) are horrible. How can we get high-quality audio into our new iPads? - Dave McNally"


EMAIL

"I have an Ipad 2 and 75% of my content is from twit.tv (both downloads and streaming). How does the TWIT podcast look on new ipad? Would it be worth upgrading just for twit video? Maybe slingbox too.

Love the network, David "
