Canon’s Cinema EOS System lineup of digital cinematography cameras and
lenses has earned the praises of a wide range of progressive
professionals working in the cinema and television production
industries. The new firmware upgrades, which will deliver enhanced
performance to effectively respond to the needs of various users, are
being offered for the EOS C500 and EOS C300 camera models while the
updated Cinema RAW Development software for 4K Cinema RAW footage is
intended for the Cinema EOS C500.
Support for ITU-R BT.2020 next-generation broadcast standard color
space (for EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL camera models)
Offering compliance with the ITU-R BT.2020 (Rec. 2020) color space
employed in the 4K TV broadcasting tests carried out earlier this year
in Japan, the firmware upgrade for the EOS C500 and EOS C500 PL camera
models facilitates the capture of high-resolution video supporting the
color space employed in the ITU-R BT.2020 next-generation broadcast
standard. When used in combination2 with Canon’s DP-V3010
professional 4K reference display (released in January 2014), the system
effectively responds to input and output needs within the realms of
next-generation motion-picture production and broadcasting.
Enhanced Cinema RAW Development functionality (for EOS C500 and EOS
C500 PL camera models)
The upgraded Cinema RAW Development software features the addition of
3D-LUT for converting from Cinema Gamut/DCI-P3+ to such highly versatile
color space standards as ITU-R BT.709 (Rec. 709) and DCI-P3, enabling
efficient video editing while maintaining low-chroma color reproduction
and high-chroma color gradation. Additionally, support for EDLs (edit
decision lists)3 enables only necessary time code-designated
segments to be converted to the DPX and ProRes formats suitable for
editing, effectively doing away with the need to process unnecessary
files. Also, when using a PC equipped with Intel® Iris™ Pro
graphics, Cinema RAW Development 1.3 makes it possible for faster
development of 4K Cinema RAW data.4
Improved operability when setting color temperature of white balance
(for EOS C500 and EOS C300 camera models)
The new firmware upgrades contribute to improved operability by allowing
users to easily set color temperature values using the camera’s FUNC
Canon plans to exhibit products supporting the ITU-R BT.2020 color space
at the company’s booth during the IBC2014 broadcast technology
tradeshow, to be held in the Netherlands, September 12-16, 2014.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
