b-roll.net Sponsors P2 Workflow Workshop

Like many of you, I’m jumping into the “tapeless” swimming pool. With the July delivery of brand-new Panasonic HPX2000 P2HD cameras here in DC, I’ve had to dive into the deep end. There was no time to simply dip in my toes. All in all, the plunge was succesful, and the water’s fine.

The cameras are solid performers, and the images they produce are amazing (having them set up by the folks over at Macie Video didn’t hurt either). The only real challenge with these tape-free cameras is developing the best workflow. What do you do when you only have the equivalent of 5-30 minute tapes in your gear bag?

Enter HD Expo

We’re proud to be a regional sponsor of the HD Expo – P2 Workflow Workshop:


Going Tapeless: Evolving a freeform non-linear image workflow

Liberate your creative process! Discover the true freedom of a non-linear image workflow! Go Tapeless! In production facilities around the world…in cameras across the universe…in post houses on every continent, tape is disappearing and being replaced by data cards, hard drives, and compact storage devices designed for speed, capacity, and efficiency. With P2, the tapeless revolution has spread from the newsrooms to the production community, from post houses to cinematographers. This two-day P2 Workflow Workshop illuminates the process of becoming completely tapeless, illustrates the entire workflow from image acquisition to data archive, and shows you how you can join the non-linear, tapeless revolution. Lead the revolution and register today!

    They’re charging $399 for what’s esentially a two day Panasonic commercial? Seriously?

    Yep, sounds great. But for a company big on pushing the product, like most of them, once it’s in the door, the rest is your problem.

    Workflows don’t just happen. You need to reinvent the wheel and change an entire workplace and they way it thinks.

    It’s a lot harder than they tell you it is. I know because we are doing it now.

  4. […] Back in the fall, I put my learnin’ hat on – you know the pointy one with the word DUNCE spelled out – and went to a P2 Workflow Workshop put on by HD Expo. The moderators were 2 guys from LA named Steve Beres and Suny Behar. Even though “Suny and Steve” sounds like the name of an old 70’s variety show spin-off, the two guys make a great team. They combine vast knowledge of industry technology with humor and curiosity. It is a cool class. […]
