As Scott and the engadget crew at NAB noted earlier, Apple's introduction of Final Cut Studio 2 and Final Cut Server made quite a splash at the keynote presentation. Now that a bit of the dust has settled, apple.com has been updated with product details:
- Final Cut Studio product page
- Final Cut Server product page
- Studio press release
- Server press release
- Apple Store showing FCS2 with a May ship date
- Video clip of the AJA ioHD breakout unit (AJA site not updated yet)
Personally, I'm excited about Final Cut Server. Having seen a demo of the original Proximity artbox product that FCServer is built on (I'm sure about this -- the screenshot is a dead ringer) and knowing the difference between what Proximity was charging and what Apple's going to charge for the product... well, it looks like this is going to be another game changer: Mercedes-quality digital asset management at a Kia-level price point.
