We're catching our breath! NAB 2012 was a success!

Me and Martin setting up the GoPro to record a demo.
Hi guys! NAB 2012 is wrapped and with it our major release of mocha V3. Las Vegas was good to us. I think I might need to sleep for something like two weeks, but there's no rest for the wicked, so instead I've uploaded two videos for you guys!

We had a major amount of traffic by the booth, and we were so excited to get out and meet all of you guys! We had our demo reel on loop and we were so thrilled that some of you were able to contribute some truly rad shots to it. The work you do with our software is consistently astounding.

Everyone was excited about our new features for mocha V3 including our new camera solver, all our new roto tools, including the transform tool, the join layers tool, project merges, nudges, and our dope sheet. We even wowed people with our established lens, insert, and remove tools. We have videos!

Steve Wright was at the Booth!

Steve Wright demoed mocha V3 for us at out booth. You can find his video below!

Introducing Mik Wells!

We even had our newest hire, Mik Wells, come to NAB with the imagineer systems crew and it was a great experience. We are SO excited to have him as a new part of our team as our Head of Engineering. Mik is an amazing fellow with TONS of programming experience, so we're really glad to have him on board. We can't wait to see what he comes up with moving forward with our software.

Mik took a few delightful videos of his new coworkers working hard at NAB.



Thanks. Thanks for that, Mik. :)

One of these Routes is not like the other.

We planted our flag in Death Valley!

I guess you could say that what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas. When my 2012 NAB trip started out, Martin Brennand, our Product Manager, flew into Los Angeles from Melbourne, Australia, and met me in Santa Monica, California. We road-tripped into Las Vegas to meet the rest of the NAB imagineer systems crew.

Our international dream-team assembled, consisting of:
  • JP Smith (UK), our CEO
  • Ross Shain (NY), our CMO
  • myself {Mary Poplin} (LA), our Product Specialist
  • Martin Brennand (Melbourne), our Product Manager 
  • Mik Wells (UK), our Head of Engineering
  • Bryan Milne (Toronto), our VP of Sales
  • Kevin Bourke (Boston), our amazing PR man
  • and Ruslan Khamidullin (Russia), one of our wonderful, hard-working software devs. 


It was the most people we've ever had in one place, as we work scattered to the four winds in various small offices around the globe... which means we don't get to see each other face to face very often. And it was a wonderful experience. After NAB was over, Martin and I decided it would be extra clever to pass by Death Valley on the way back to Los Angeles. This may have been a bad call, as it was very hot, very remote, and very out of the way...

I may or may not admit to the fact that I am very extreme temperature and dry heat sensitive. Like an amphibian. This was not the best decision.

TTFN!

Updates to come as we keep on doing events for V3's release. We can't wait to hear what you guys think of it and as usual, if you have any questions, we are happy to help!

Cheers!
Mary
