Waukesha, WI – June 7, 2011 – Safe Harbor Computers, a leading supplier to video and 3D animation professionals, today announced that they will be exhibiting at the 5th annual Illinois Videographers Association Midwest Expo, June 28, 2011. Demonstrating unique features of the Atomos Ninja, alongside the power of Safe Harbor’s custom-built Tsunami and Mac Pro workstations, attendees will experience hands-on benefits of the latest hardware and software.
The Atomos Ninja, a rugged and portable 10-bit field recorder for video cameras and DSLRs with HDMI, will be mounted to a Sony video camera for demonstration purposes. The battery-powered unit takes the live uncompressed HDMI feed from a camcorder and saves it to a 2.5" hard drive in the 10-bit ProRes format with 4:2:2 quality, bypassing the compression cameras use when saving HD video to tape or memory card. The captured ProRes files can then be immediately edited in Final Cut Pro without Log and Transfer or any type of transcoding needed. The ProRes clips will also play in Premiere Pro CS5.5 for PC users. Functionality will be demonstrated on both platforms.
Also featured will be Safe Harbor’s custom built Tsunami workstations powered by Adobe Production Premium CS5.5 and NVIDIA Quadro by PNY. The Mercury Playback Engine at the heart of Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 is NVIDIA GPU-accelerated, 64-bit native, architected for the future—enabling users to work more fluidly on projects in SD, HD, 2K, 4K, and beyond. Safe Harbor staff and experienced video editor Jeff Pulera will be available for questions as he demonstrates this powerful setup with the Atomos Ninja. An Apple Mac Pro workstation will also be on display with unique configurations tailored to specific editing needs.
Literature, raffle prizes, exclusive show specials and coupons will be available to all attendees at the Safe Harbor booth. Jeff will also be discussing the various performance levels of Tsunami and how Safe Harbor can work with customers to meet specific needs and budgets. Show attendees will be able to visit the booth, talk with video professionals, and learn how the Atomos Ninja, with an optimized workstation from Safe Harbor, helps to maximize production workflows.

Mark your calendar! A brand new slate of exciting professional development programs for wedding and event videographers starts…NOW!
Philadelphia will be the site for the official kick-off of the 8th Annual WEVA Town Meeting Tour, and all-new WEVA Institute workshops on Monday March 20!
And, spectacular Mandalay Bay will host the 16th Annual WEVA EXPO August 21-24th.
Sponsored by Adobe Systems, the 2006 city-wide WEVA Town Meeting Tour stops will also include: Chicago (March 27), Atlanta (March 30), Los Angeles (April 3), San Jose (April 5), and Las Vegas (April 25 - NAB week).
WEVA and its members will be working in tandem with some of the largest local videographers associations in the nation in producing and presenting a fresh, inspiring, and cutting-edge series of professional development programs custom designed for wedding & event videographers.
2006 Tour to Kick-Off in Philadelphia
"It is with great anticipation and pride that we receive the news of the 2006 WEVA Town Meeting's visit to Philly," said Bruce Garner, President of the Greater Philadelphia Videographers Association (GPVA).
"WEVA's ongoing commitment to education in our industry is one of the things that GPVA values the most. The annual WEVA Town Meeting Tour has been a large part of that education and we look forward to being part of the Tour this season," said Garner.
WEVA EXPO 2006 Heads to the Beaches of Mandalay Bay
"We are thrilled to have Mandalay Bay, a jewel property, as our official host for WEVA EXPO 2006 for what will be our industry’s biggest and best convention and trade show to date," said WEVA International Chairman Roy Chapman.
All WEVA EXPO 2006 programs and activities, including the 2006 WEVA Trade Show will be held at Mandalay Bay. Room reservations for WEVA attendees will open through Mandalay Bay next week.
Choice of Mandalay Bay or Luxor
"We have listened closely to WEVA members, and in working with Mandalay Bay we finally found a diamond property that has responded to our requests and is able to accommodate suggestions from our attendees by expanding the options that WEVA EXPO 2006 can offer," said Chapman.
The WEVA EXPO 2006 dates at Mandalay Bay represent a change from the early August dates first announced (without location) last fall. "Unlike in the past, it became clear this year, with so many new industry technologies emerging all at once and overlapping, that the Siggraph show scheduled the same week in early August was presenting a conflict for too many exhibitors who wanted to be able to have their top staff and extensive displays and workstations set up at both shows," said Chapman. "It’s the first time an EXPO date has been changed, but it’s also the first time we feel we have finally found exceptional choices in accommodations for everyone at a resort property that is absolutely awesome — and one that allows our association ample room for growth!"
Cutting-Edge Programs on New Creativity, Techniques, and Emerging Technologies
"The 2006 WEVA Town Meeting Tour and professional development workshops planned for this new season will usher in new advancements in emerging technologies that affect all videographers," Zale said.
"Our goal for the 2006 Tour, which will lead right into WEVA EXPO is to put WEVA members right on the cutting-edge of techniques and technology that will improve workflow and result in new business, new bookings at higher levels, and even new weekday work."
Special events and programs arranged for the 8th Annual WEVA Town Meeting Tour and new WEVA Institute workshops will be unveiled later this week on the WEVA Town Meeting and WEVA Institute sections of the WEVA website along with instant online registration.
Official EXPO Opening Happens Monday August 21
A special orientation and Welcome Event for first-time WEVA EXPO attendees will be presented Monday morning August 21 at 10:30 a.m.
And, Dan Krieger, Chairman of the WEVA Continuing Education Committee notes that a new round of testing for the WEVA Merited Professional Videographer (MPV) accreditation will also be held at this year’s EXPO.
Watch the WEVA website for more details on all of the outstanding new programs coming up from the Wedding & Event Videographers Association International.
The EVENTDV 25 honors the 25 "hottest" or most influential videographers working in the field today. "Our industry has excellent awards programs that recognize superior individual works and honor lifetime achievement," said EventDV editor Stephen F. Nathans. "But until now there's been no award designed specifically for videographers who are exerting a profound influence on the field right now. That's where the EVENTDV 25 comes in. Think of it as our 2005 All-Star Team."
EventDV began accepting nominations from its readers in July through an online voting system, and convened an Executive Committee comprised of five of the top videographers in the business to consider candidates for the list and debate key criteria. Nathans served as moderator for the committee. "There's more to being hot or influential than winning awards, as we discovered," Nathans said. "And just because you were a major player in the field 10 years ago doesn't mean your peers still regard you as influential today."
The main criteria for inclusion include the following: creating innovative or award-winning work, speaking at conferences, developing educational materials like instructional DVDs, contributing to magazines and online forums, and taking leadership roles in local and national associations. "For each honoree," Nathans said, "the qualifications were a little different."
Sponsors for the EVENTDV 25 are Sony and JVC.
The EVENTDV 25 will be presented in two places: at the 4EVER Group's Video 06 on January 9, and in the cover story of the January 2006 issue of EventDV. The EVENTDV 25 awards will be presented to honorees on the opening night of the convention at the Video 06 awards banquet, which runs from 7-11 PM. The presentation of the 4EVER Group's own Artistic Achievement Awards will headline the evening. EventDV is a Media Partner of Video 06.
Video 06, the 4EVER Event Video Group Convention and Trade Show runs January 9-12, 2006 at Disney's Coronado Resort in Orlando, Florida. Registration is still open. For more information on Video 06, visit http://www.4evergroup.org/conventionandtradeshow.html.
