Blackmagic Design's Dan May Talks Collaborative Workflows & More at NAB 2017

Dan May, President, Blackmagic Design, answers a few questions regarding NAB 2017, including what to expect from Blackmagic, trends to look out for and where you can find them on the showroom floor.

Q Finish the sentence: 2017 will be the production industry’s year of _____

A Collaborative workflows. We are seeing a big push towards collaborative workflows as everyone is expected to do more in less time. There’s been a shift in how we consume content today, and as such, the demand for content has never been greater, as trends like streaming have become the new norm. Time is of the essence, and multiple professionals will often work simultaneously, regardless of location, on the same project in order to meet deadlines. To achieve this level of collaboration, the tools used must be flexible and able to interface with a variety of codecs, systems, specs, and standards. With collaboration comes the sharing of ideas and the increased understanding of different disciplines, for example, a colorist doing a bit of editing or VFX work, or a DP editing and grading. As professionals gain new skillsets, their tools need to support that knowledge being put into practice.
