Sony have announced today their new reference-grade BVM-E Series – in 25- and 17-inch sizes – incorporate groundbreaking processing and imaging capabilities designed to give a true replacement for CRT in critical evaluation applications. However there is a drawback, although there's no price so far, they surely won't be for the budget conscious! After all the L231 retails at $21,500. Only expect these displays in high-end grading suites. More details after the break.

Another brilliant and helpful review from our old friend Philip Johnston over at HD Warrior. This time he's looked at the Panasonic AG-AF101. It's twenty minutes long and well worth the watch. All the camera spec after the break.

Active Storage have come up with a Metadata controller that looks like the now defunct Xserve. They're very proud of their new baby especially its ''out of the box'' readiness. 


Active Storage are teasing us with this countdown to Monday where a machine to replace the EOL'd Apple XServe might be announced. They have a pretty good track record too..


Ever wondered which card is better out of these two beasts? Well we've found a guy who tested these monsters to the max.


The ARRI ALEXA is a very cool camera. Out of our budget range at the moment but we can still dream. And that dream becomes very real if you want to get an idea how it operates as ARRI have come out with the ALEXA Camera Simulator (ACS-1).


Good news for all those DaVinci fans out there. Blackmagic Design has certified Cubix's GPU-Xpander Desktop for use with DaVinci Resolve for Mac v7.1!


Another card gets launched today, this time the beefy $1,199 NVIDIA Quadro 4000 GPU. With FCP, Motion & FxPlug plugins using the GPU, more GPU power means faster renders. There are speed references with FCP mentioned on their site, but be warned this model will not fit some old MacPro's.
