HP‘s Big Workstation Launch Wows ‘em In the Big Apple

 
September 12th, 2013 by David Heller

This year’s HP workstation product launch event was the biggest I’ve ever attended, and the most exciting in terms of the revolutionary new product offerings presented and the people I met and interviewed.

We gathered early on Wednesday morning in a large hall in the NYC Sheraton Hotel, right in the midst of bustling Times Square, and to get the ball rolling were treated to speeches by some heavy hitting HP workstation users.

The Appetizer

Mark Russell – Director, Producer, and Vfx Expert

First at bat was Mark Russell, and he hit it out of the park.  Mark is an independent Vfx creator and supervisor who headed up the special effect team during filming and now working post production on the upcoming Martin Scorsese film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ that’s destined to become a blockbuster when it hits the theaters later this year.

We were treated to some video outtakes from this production that showcased the VFx work that Mark produced for this film that was primarily shot and produced on Long Island and in Manhattan, just a quick subway ride to Brooklyn where Mark lives.

When you watch the film you won’t know where reality ends and CG takes over, it’s done that well.  One series of fly-over shots  were taken of a mansion in the Hamptons with multiple takes from a 4-bladed radio controlled miniature helicopter equipped with a super high-definition camera that transmitted the video wirelessly to an HP workstation on the ground for processing and viewing in real time.  The mini-copter stays in the air for less than a minute before running out of juice and the ground crew had to plop in new batteries fast to get this small bird back in the air before the ‘magic’ light evaporated.  The perfect lighting conditions occur close to sunset and the perfect light window lasts only around thirty minutes, so the film crew had to be super organized to shot this series in the allotted time, and keeping everyone and everything organized was a major part of Mark’s job.  Oh, and they did make a rendered CG Model of the mansion that you can’t tell from the real thing for shots that the mini-copter just couldn’t cope with.

Invitation for a video interview at DAC 2013 in Austin

 
April 25th, 2013 by Sanjay Gangal

EDACafe.Com is exhibiting at DAC 2013 in booth #424 on June 3rd and 4th and giving away a KindleFire. We are recording video interviews at the conference for exhibitors and presenters attending the expo. Each interview is typically 3 – 7 minute long. For the exhibitors, we typically ask the following questions and a few follow up questions:

  • Tell us about your company?
  • What are you showing at your booth?
  • Do you want to share any new announcements with the EDACafe audience?
  • How can EDACafe visitors find out more about your company?

The questions can be customized for each company. We record the interviews in front of a green screen and then replace the background with the exhibitor booth picture or some other suitable backdrop. The presenters are asked about their company and the papers they are presenting.

We charge a nominal fees to record interviews to cover our expenses. Contact Sanjay Gangal if you are interested in booking a 15-minute time slot for the interview. You can see past interviews here.

To add a little fun to the conference, we are asking the conference attendees to share a joke in front of the video camera. The best jokes will be edited together in a video montage. The jokes have to be clean and funny.
