Has 4K editing come to tablets?
Microsoft made a play for the content creation market yesterday, when it positioned its forthcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 2 tablet as a full-fledged mobile workstation with horsepower to spare. Specifically, Microsoft Surface General Manager Panos Panay [pictured, top] showed off a Red Dragon Carbon Fiber camera, then proceeded to scrub through some 6K raw R3D footage in Assimilate Scratch Play.
“I’m using raw 6K footage … and I can do what I want with it here at my workstation as a full-powered PC,” Panay said, using the Surface Pro 2 in notebook mode with attached keyboard. Then, he undocked the computer and detached the screen from the keyboard to carry the system across the stage in tablet mode, describing it as having “the full power of a PC in a tablet form factor.”
Assimilate VP of Business Development Lucas Wilson explained: Scratch Play was running 1/4 debayer R3D footage at 6144×2592 on stage. In a demo area, one Surface Pro 2 was outputting 6144×2592 R3D Dragon footage and Ultra HD (UHD) DPX files to a UHD display at 3840×2160/24p in real time. Another was playing Epic and Dragon footage at 1/4 and 1/8 debayer resolution from a Red Drive connected via USB 3.0.
