We can't believe we read a tweet this morning saying that there weren't any new Thunderbolt products on display at IBC. Maybe they didn't go past the G-Technology stand and catch sight of this 8TB monster prototype.

blackmagic_intensity_extreme

The newly announced Thunderbolted Intensity Extreme from Blackmagic Design is targeted at professional videographers. Small, bus powered with HDMI in & out, it will retail for €209.

matrox_thunderbolt

Matrox have taken a different approach to Thunderbolt connectivity with their I/O products compared to other manufacturers. Instead of building new models with Thunderbolt connectors, the adaptor allows new and existing products to use the superfast technology.

AJA_IOXT

We think we'll look back and see the introduction of Thunderbolt as a bit of a watershed. Today AJA Video Systems announced the io XT, a portable I/O video 7 audio capture box. We sat down with Tony Cacciarelli who took us through all the new products and updates for IBC 2011.

lacie_thunderbolt

When we first saw the announcement about Thunderbolt we knew it would change the industry. We met up with Clément Barberis from LaCie to look at the Little Big Disk and its new Thunderbolted big brother.

fcpdotco_maintenance

You might have noticed a slowdown on the site recently, this is because every day we get more and more new traffic and our old creaky server 'Cannot handle it anymore Captain.'  So over the next few days we are upgrading (again) our hosting hardware to handle the traffic. We have grown far quicker than we expected, so a big thank you to you all out there for making us the destination for everything FCPX and of course Final Cut Pro. In the meantime, sorry if we go offline or things run slower than they should.

aja_thunderbolt_thorn

AJA Video have been in the Mac video card business for over 10 years, no doubt you have either owned one or edited on a system using one. Here Jon from AJA runs through the products and looks to the future.

storyboard_composer_hd

When the iPhone version of this storyboard creation app was launched, we thought it was pretty cool but maybe the size of the iPhone made everything a bit fiddly to work. Now Cinemek have released a version that also works on the iPad which gives the app a new lease of life with the extra real estate.

vimeopro

Vimeo have launched a new service, Vimeo Pro. Do you use Vimeo for posting commercial videos? If so then this might be just be worth looking at to avoid the potential black box problem on your website.

primatte_keyer_5

Red Giant have today announced the availability of its updated professional green screen tool, Primatte Keyer. New features, improved performance and a pretty impressive list of Hollywood credits too.

magic_bullett_2

We nearly posted this yesterday but we're glad we didn't as a discount promo arrived in our inbox today. Red Giant have updated the Magic Bullet Suite, added some plugins and now have 25% off too.

promise_thunderbolt

We are going to have to hide our credit cards this morning. Apple have just posted the Promise Pegasus R6 12 & 6TB drives on the Apple Store. That 'Add to Basket' button is saying 'click me.'

upgrade_lion_osx

We all know that we will be able to download OS X Lion from the Mac App Store in July. But what if you have multiple seats that need upgrading and would a possible volume licence apply to other (ahem) downloadable apps in the future?
