Dan always catches me making the weirdest faces!
CineGear is always a great show. Who doesn’t love being on the Paramount lot? There’s an incredible amount of history in one place AND there’s more being made everyday. This year we were on Stage 15 which has been home to some incredible movies and tv shows like True Grit, The Hunt for Red October, The Birdcage and Glee. Probably the coolest building I saw was the furniture warehouse – what I wouldn’t give to walk through there!
New at CineGear for us this year was PrimeTranscoder – it’s a transcoding app – as if that weren’t obvious from the title. Between that and talking about long term storage with PreRoll Post I don’t think I stopped talking for a solid two days. Which is great particularly since that’s my job!
One of the coolest things about being in Hollywood is the casual name or project dropping. We talked to people who had worked on Guardians of the Galaxy and American Gods and learned how far and wide our software has traveled! We heard horror stories of lost media and hero stories about how ShotPut Pro saved a project (and probably someones job!). We also made some people VERY happy by announcing ShotPut Pro 6 for Windows would be released as soon as we got back – and it was (and it’s awesome)!
Overall it was another incredibly successful show for us. Check out some of our pictures below and if you are looking for workflow tools – look no further, We’ve Got Your Back(Up)!
CineGear 2016 was our first time attending the LA show – and what a treat it was! The weather was nice and hot but the people were completely cool and friendly. You can expect to see us again at CineGear in the future! Check out our impressions of the show and see what we showed – LOTS of new things coming from Imagine Products this summer!
Let’s start with the picture collage above, this is a great representation what we saw and what we showed at CineGear. Top left corner; ProxyMill 5 is due out this summer and we showed it off at the Tech Awards banquet – that’s right, we think it’s award worthy! Left middle; Dan the demo man talking about ShotPut Pro Windows on the Surface tablet, imagine how much lighter travel can be with ShotPut Pro on a tablet… and now it’s possible! Bottom left corner; we always find a fun place to toast the end of the show and there was plenty to toast at CineGear 2016. Top middle; showing off our new pop up banners! Bottom middle; there were all kinds of neat toys running around the show. We ran into this guy a number of times, can’t wait to see all the footage of the show he got! Right; it was very cool to be on the Paramount lot. It was neat to get a behind the scenes look at all the different aspects of filming on a studio lot.
So what did we show? And who did we see?
