    Apple To Hold Special Event At NAB

    [​IMG]

    MacWorld is reporting that Apple has announced a special event at NAB on Sunday, April 15.

    If recent information proves to be reliable, Apple will use the event to introduce Final Cut Pro 6 and a high-end counterpart dubbed Final Cut Extreme. A recent Page 2 rumor also claimed that Mac Pros would be updated to support a high-definition optical format at NAB.

    Previous Apple NAB events have brought the 17" MacBook Pro, Final Cut Studio, and Motion's original release.

    Timing
    I seem to have my ear to above average ground and many of my "predictions" have been pretty close.
    So here we go . . . . .


    Strong possibilities include:

    MacPro Octo announced at NAB, shipping 7-07

    1. Can't you do 10bit 4:4:4 2K in realtime today, with the appropriate I/O and superfast disk arrays? I believe so.

    2. Blu-ray should be optional. Otherwise it's a similar situation to the PS3 where the technology is forced.

    3. Built-in iSights? Please no. Ewwwwwww.

    Here's a real prediction for the next Mac Pros: available Serial Attached SCSI (SAS).

    Final Touch integration into the suite is plausible. But whether Shake is brought into the suite remains to be seen.
    Yawn boring, huh? "Just to introduce a new FCP," eh? FCP and the suite are very important. Maybe it's nothing to you but it's everything for others. Thanks for reminding me of my 15-year-old cousin. :)

    Apple doesn't exist for the sole purpose of pleasing you and just you my friend.. It's a pro conference, they will not be releasing consumer equipment. And yes, I don't consider such a small MBP to be anything they will advertise running FCP or Aperture on.

    Shake, in its current incarnation, is dead. Gonna have to wait until next year to get any new version of "Shake". So definitely don't bet on it being rolled into Final Cut Studio.

    Yeah, in your dreams. I bet half of those won't happen in 2007 at all.

    For these speculated products to be shown at NAB Leopard must be shown either before or at the same time.

    Looks like we're going to get another "special event" prior to this one.

    I love having the integrated iSight on my macbook, but in the displays? Pfffff get the hell outta here.

    I can see a market for 13" macbook pros, but the likelihood of that happening is rather low I think. I say this, but I know in my heart if it was available I'd buy it.

    As said already Blu-Ray is a bad idea to include as standard. I'd refuse to buy a Mac Pro if it came with Blu-Ray. Sony is the only one dumb enough to install B-R into their computers since they're trying to keep their format alive.

    I'd really love to see FCS 6.0. I'm happy with 5.1, but there's always room for an updated version :D

    And I doubt 8 core macs. Really, is there a market for it? Not enough methinks. Unless it's a BTO option, and then it'll be so expensive that everyone will complain. :rolleyes:

    I was thinking in terms of round-tripping such as we have today with Motion, LiveType and Soundtrack Pro.

    Seems an awfully long way away.

    Surely we will see something new mac related before then? this black hole of mac related announcements is really starting to drag, especially where Leopard is concerned.
