    *slapping knees*

    Sorry Greg, I've got to say, you've gone a touch tinfoil hat on this one.

    Those gchat things, are built in reactions to phrasing, doesn't mean they're logging anything.

    Try typing "hahahahaha" or "lololol" into it. Anyone with a vanilla Android phone has seen this behavior exist for quite some time. They have tons of goofy built in shit for kicks. I love it.

    Portable towers with built in keyboards and monitors
    posted by Michael Oliver on Feb. 4, 2015, 8:50 p.m. (1 day ago)
    I cannot seem to locate the names of the various companies that make those slick portable workstations with integrated monitors and keyboards.

    Allows you the full power of a tower (ie full graphics cards, dual processors, etc..) in a case you can tote around for onset, trade shows, or other semi-mobile applications. Anyone got a contact or recommendation?

  • 4K Playback/Monitoring In RV
    posted by Rob Gestone on Feb. 5, 2015, 1:36 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi all,
     
    I have some potential jobs coming up that shot in 4K @ 24FPS and 2K @ 120FPS stereo respectively, and I'm looking to optimize our current Review setup.
     
    Right now, our setup is an HP Z820 running Windows 7 Pro with an NVIDIA K4000 card. It outputs from the DisplayPort with a DisplayPort to HDMI converter to the HDMI TV, a Samsung 4K UHD LED 9000 (http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN65F9000AFXZA).
     
    The footage I've tested is 10bit DPX playing off our server (10G fibre connected via SMB) but caching locally to an SSD---using RV to playback in fullscreen mode to the LED monitor, which acts as the "second" monitor (ie: not using a BlackMagic or KONA card, but rather, extending the screen).
     
    I can get LED to play 24FPS 4K footage at 3840x2160 30Hz, but not completely smoothly--no tearing and not jerky, but definitely doesn't look to be playing the right speed, almost like it is skipping frames. Can't get the monitor to work at 24Hz or 60Hz at that resolution. Could it be the card itself isn't powerful enough to handle it, and if so, any recommendations?
     
    Thanks.

    Calling All Hitachi Storage Savvy Admins!
    posted by Kevin McCartney on Feb. 5, 2015, 7:35 p.m. (1 day ago)

    We are about to be working on a project with about 150TB of data. We have purchased the disks and will be giving this project its own file system. I am used to the isilon model of storage so I am still trying to understand how the load is distributed. Doing some very heavy test renders we are seeing a large spike in the bossock fibre count of the node its running on. In doing some research its looking like the disk is not able to keep up with the requests. Is it possible to spread the load of one really large file system over mutlple heads? We have a lot of smaller file systems that I am able to spread between the two nodes. I am wondering when you have one large file system that is getting hit with loads of traffic what the best course of action is. Its already on its own EVS and the only file system running on that node.

    Anyone out there using tiger technologys Tiger Box?

    It's an intriguing product because its so much more cost efficient than most of the other shared storage solutions out there, and supports our fibre infrastructure thats already built out.  Even supports bin locking for avid.  We got about 13 editors working in prores on an Xsan at the moment, but have been considering a switch to premier or media composer and ditching the aging xsan.

    Quality ProRes output without a Mac
    posted by Joe Chonacky on Feb. 9, 2015, 4:10 p.m. (1 day ago)

    Forgive me if this has been done to death: I searched through the message archives and didn’t find what I was looking for.

     

    We have an Editorial workflow transitioning from Final Cut Pro to Premiere CC.  There is a bit of a hang fire happening in the switch, and it centers on the ongoing need to make deliveries in ProRes.  It’s a problem because my best machines are now running Windows instead of OS X (let’s not dwell on why here please, there were some good reasons for this).

     

    We’ve been using the older Final Cut workstations to create ProRes when needed, but my newer Premiere workstations are mighty beasts and I’m not satisfied with not being able to output ProRes from them… it’s almost the only thing holding back the transition. 

     

    I was going to evaluate Miraizon’s DNxHD and ProRes v2 product, but discover that they are closing up shop.

     

    Are we really still here?  Am I missing something?  Is there really no demand for such a thing, or is Apple just (unit)blocking all attempts to create a solution successfully?  Is there another approach not occurring to me?  Is (diety) punishing me for not buying little black trashcans as his acolytes demanded?

     

    All input appreciated,

    Microsoft Releases Critical Security Bulletin
    posted by Michael Oliver on Feb. 10, 2015, 4:15 p.m. (1 day ago)
    Time to roll out those patches to your corporate laptops...unless you are running Windows Server 2003...then you get to upgrade to 2012 :)



    Windows Server 2003 is listed as an affected product; why is Microsoft not issuing an update for it?
    The architecture to properly support the fix provided in the update does not exist on Windows Server 2003 systems, making it infeasible to build the fix for Windows Server 2003. To do so would require re-architecting a very significant amount of the Windows Server 2003 operating system, not just the affected component. The product of such a re-architecture effort would be sufficiently incompatible with Windows Server 2003 that there would be no assurance that applications designed to run on Windows Server 2003 would continue to operate on the updated system.

    This vulnerability requires that a user connect their computer to an untrusted network such as a Wi-Fi hotspot in a coffee shop; therefore, workstations that are connected to an untrusted network are most at risk from this vulnerability.

    posted by  on Feb. 13, 2015, 11:15 a.m. (1 day ago)
    Hi,

    I'm teaching an after school program in game design and animation at a local community centre and am in need of laptops or desktops (max 12) that can run Maya. Very lightweight Maya and Unity, anything with Intel 3000 graphics and 4GB of ram should work.

    If you have any old gear to spare, we'd be happy to pick it up!

    Thanks
