  • Apple 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display (Mid 2015)

    Apple weds stunning 5K graphic visuals into their sleek 5mm thin design aesthetic with their 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display released in late 2014. With a 5120 x 2880 native resolution, the graphics on this iMac are clearer and more eye-catching than on any other previous model.

    Apple also features a quad-core 4th-gen Haswell 3.3 GHz Intel Core i5 processor into the mix, along with 8GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM. The four SO-DIMM slots are user accessible, so you have the option to upgrade the RAM up to 32GB for higher-end video or photo production needs.

    To help with the enhanced display, this iMac also includes an AMD Radeon R9 M290 graphics card with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. This powerful GPU was designed for high-level gaming, but will do double duty when editing videos or large resolution photos.

    Other amenities include an integrated FaceTime HD camera, dual microphones, stereo speakers, a full-size keyboard with 78 keys, including 12 function keys and 4 arrow keys (inverted "T" arrangement), and a Magic Mouse.

    Outfitted with 802.11ac Wi-Fi (backwards compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n) for the speediest hook-ups to your home network, this iMac is also configured with Bluetooth 4.0, as well as an SDXC card slot for extra storage, four USB 3.0 ports, two Thunderbolt 2 ports, and a Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45) jack. It also has a Kensington lock slot for added security.

    For ports, the iMac has dual Thunderbolt 2 ports (which also double as Mini DisplayPorts) and four USB 3.0 ports. You'll be able to connect with various compatible components. If you would rather go wireless with your peripherals, you can use Bluetooth 4.0 technology where compatible.

    27" Retina 5K IPS Display
    Whether your iMac is in your studio, living room, or kitchen, the display is the focal point. With a 5120 x 2880 resolution, the iMac with Retina 5K display features 14.7 million pixels, which allows for crisp, clear text and support for 4K photos and videos. The IPS panel allows for wider viewing angles so more people can enjoy the Retina 5K display without having to crowd around it.
    AMD Radeon M290 Graphics
    All the pixels in the world won't do you any good if you can't quickly and efficiently command them into action. That's why the iMac with Retina 5K display features a dedicated AMD Radeon M290 graphics card with up to 3.5 teraflops of graphics compute power. So you experience stunning motion graphics, jaw-dropping visual effects, and 3D graphics on the built-in Retina 5K display.
    4th Generation Haswell Intel Core i5 Processor
    The iMac houses a quad-core 4th-gen Haswell Intel Core i5 processor. Its quad cores can reach a stock speed of 3.3 GHz. It can also be overclocked up to 3.7 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 4th-gen Haswell Intel processor uses low voltage for better energy efficiency while still providing fast performance.
    Impossibly Thin
    The iMac with Retina 5K display maintains its 5mm profile, which is up to 40 percent less volume than the 2011 iMac. Using an advanced welding method called friction-stir welding, Apple was able to join the front and the back of the iMac together directly.
    802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0
    With three-stream 802.11ac technology, the iMac takes desktop Wi‑Fi speeds over the top. When it's connected to an 802.11ac base station - including AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule (both sold separately) - you can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps. That's triple the previous 802.11n standard, which means you'll get up to three times faster Wi‑Fi. You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz‑wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology is also built in, so you can connect accessories such as a wireless keyboard and mouse.
    Thunderbolt 2
    Expand the capabilities of your Mac. Connect high-performance peripherals. Transfer data at high speed. Even daisy-chain multiple devices. And the iMac with Retina 5K display has Thunderbolt 2, delivering twice the bandwidth - up to 20 Gbps - for fast data transfers. While the Thunderbolt 2 ports double as mini DisplayPorts, the iMac with Retina 5K display cannot be used as a standalone monitor like its predecessor. It can, however, be used simultaneously with an external display and can output up to a 3840 by 2160 resolution.
    USB 3.0
    With USB 3.0, you can transfer large files in seconds instead of minutes. Every iMac comes with four USB 3.0 ports - with speeds up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 - and you can connect all your USB-compatible devices, including your iPhone, iPad, iPod or digital camera.

  • Autodesk Smoke for Mac 2013 Commercial New SLM (Download)

    Smoke for Mac 2013 Commercial New SLM by Autodesk is a single-user license available by electronic download for the Mac operating system. Smoke integrates editing, node-based compositing, motion graphics, 3D CGI and color-correction tools into one application. Smoke is a standalone system, but is able to conform timelines and share media with select NLE systems. Smoke features an integrated 3D environment that integrates with select 3D animation software. This provides you with keying, tracking, 3D lighting, and shading functions in a single 3D compositing toolset.

    Smoke is built on a 64-bit multithreaded architecture that can handle complex composites while remaining responsive. It features native support for Red, SonyRaw, ArriRaw and ProRes files, sparing you from having to work with proxy files or wait for your footage to be transcoded. Smoke follows established editing conventions, and the user interface is customizable, allowing you to work the way you want to work.

    Editing and Effects Combined
    Smoke integrates the traditional non-linear editing workflow with high-end effects, motion graphics and color grading tools in a single application that helps you eliminate round tripping.
    Professional Editing
    • Smoke was designed with the timeline as its creative base. Editing and trimming tools, hotkeys, audio controls and media bins follow established NLE conventions easing the transitions between platforms, increasing productivity.
    • Moving between editing and effects is virtually seamless as the dynamic UI of Smoke reshapes itself to the task at hand. Because rendered results are automatically fed back into your timeline, changes and updates are not a problem.
    Accurate Conform Tools
    Smoke offers powerful conform workflows with the most popular editorial software. So you can start on another NLE, and then tweak, composite, add graphics and 3D effects, color-correct and finish in Smoke. You can import projects and media files from Final Cut Pro X via XML. If you're working with Media Composer or Premiere Pro, you can access multi-layer timelines and media using AAF.
    Media Management
    With Smoke 2013, your media is managed automatically in one place and within a single project. MediaHub is an intuitive and easy way to manage the media in your project -- from ingest to edit to effects and archiving.
    Native Support for the Formats You Need
    Smoke supports ProRes, Red, SonyRaw and ArriRaw files, so you can work natively or create local optimized media in the background from uncompressed image sequences.
    ConnectFX: Node-Based Compositing
    With the ConnectFX feature, you can quickly apply multiple effects to timeline segments or gaps in a customizable and flexible effects pipeline.
      • Combine intuitive effects tools, including keying, 3D compositing, relighting, plug-in type effects, paint, and text.
      • Move quickly between layer-based timeline effects and a customizable schematic view.
      • Experiment right in the timeline until you get the look you want, without having to open a separate effects program and send media back and forth between the two.
      • Results of your effects work are viewable on the timeline
    Smoke & 3D
    Smoke has a full 3D titling system and the ability to import 3D geometry. Text can be extruded and beveled, and objects can be textured and cast shadows. Action is Smoke's interactive, true 3D creative compositing environment.
    • Mix video with 2D and 3D elements.
    • Design 3D text, titles and logos and 3D motion graphics.
    • Smoke offers sophisticated relighting tools for creating highly stylized lighting effects such as 3D lens flares, volumetric light rays, true 3D cast shadows and blooming. -- all from the timeline.
    • Controls are keyframeable, allowing you to animate your effects, and the intuitive nature of the tools make it easy to modify and adjust the effects and tweak the timing.
    • Smoke supports both Autodesk FBX asset exchange and Alembic open interchange formats, so it can integrate with Maya, 3ds Max, Softimage and select third party software.


    New Color Management Engine and ACES Support
    Smoke now supports the powerful new Academy/ASC color transform format. These color transforms are applied using a new floating-point color management engine that has been integrated into the viewer/player, the broadcast monitor, and the LUT Editor. The LUT Editor also includes the ability to combine multiple color transforms and export them. There is also a collection of over 100 color transforms, which includes support for the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES).
    Flexible System Requirements
    Smoke supports iMacs, MacBook Pro laptops, MacBook Pros and fast Thunderbolt storage.
    Learning Smoke is Easy
    Autodesk has redesigned Smoke easy to learn and use. Extensive training resources are available, including online documentation, tutorials, tips & tricks, webcasts, the AREA online community forum, the Smoke Learning Channel on YouTube, and paid Smoke trainings.
  • AJA Io XT Professional Capture & Playback Device with Thunderbolt

    The Io XT from AJA is a professional 3G-SDI/HDMI capture & playback device that serves as an editing solution for Macs equipped with Thunderbolt ports. With extensive I/O choices including 4:4:4 RGB, dual Thunderbolt ports for ultra-fast (up to 10 Gb/s) connections to both an editing suite and a storage device, and hardware-based up/down/cross conversion for HD and SD formats, this portable device is a strong choice for directing video- and audio-signal traffic into and out of your Mac editing computer – whether a desktop system or a Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Pro.

    The Io XT has dual 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and two such outputs; these pairs can also be used for dual-link 4:4:4 RGB I/O. Supported 10-bit formats of that type include 1080i, 1080p, 1080PsF, and 720p. The device can also convert between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 to set up single-link HD-SDI monitoring and output.

    Speaking of conversion, the Io XT features a 10-bit, broadcast-quality motion-adaptive up/down/cross conversion, from HD to SD and vice versa, as well as between 1080 and 720 HD formats – even at filmic 23.98 frame rates involving progressive segmented frames (720p23.98 to 1080PsF/23.98). All conversion is hardware-based, so it's available always for either ingest or playback.

    HDMI I/O comes in the form of HDMI 1.3 in and HDMI 1.4a out, which includes support for 3D display for monitoring those stereoscopic projects. If the digital I/O capabilities of the device aren't enough, Io XT also features a full slate of analog audio and video ports, including 12-bit component analog video output.

    In addition, Io XT features a BNC for either LTC or reference input, as well as one for LTC output. The RS-422 connector enables machine control, so you can drive any traditional tape-based VTR via the Io XT.

    Of course the Io XT is compatible with the most popular Mac-based NLEs, and its drivers are optimized for OS X, so the application you're using can control the advanced hardware capabilities that AJA has built into the device. In addition, AJA Control Room software provides an intuitive, all-in-one way to control the Io XT in order to configure it for your own specific workflow, customizing the audio and video capture, conversion, playback, and output features. AJA Control Room supports a variety of video, audio, and still file types.
