Review: Sony Vegas Pro 13
by Andre ElijahSony Vegas Pro 13 is a Non Linear Editing system from the folks at Sony Creative Software akin to other professional mainstream NLEs from Avid, Adobe, and Apple. Like those other NLE's, Vegas Pro 13 has all of the day to day essentials required by a modern editor including, a timeline, media bins, a viewport for the selected clip, as well as a viewport for the timeline. Additionally - all of the tools in terms of making selections and trimming are where you'd expect. Since I come from a career of mainly editing documentaries - one of the things I've come across lots of is mixed formats of footage. RED, 5D mark II, GoPro, P2, XAVC, and files transcoded in ProRes. I'm glad to report that all of these formats work easily in Vegas Pro 13 - and it is as simple as drag and drop. Additionally you can mix and match all these types of footage in the same timeline without issue.

Unique Needs of 24x7 Running Storage & MAM for Reality TV
Today’s reality TV productions are ambitious in their size and tight broadcast schedules, requiring a multitude of impressive engineering feats. When not tracking every move of a housewife, psychic medium or celebrity, other shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, America’s Got Talent or The Voice closely follow the progress of contestants and are broken up into segments: the documentary portions that tell the back stories of contestants, the behind-the- scenes shots that show the contestants preparing for the competition, and then the (sometimes live, sometimes not) actual competition portion itself.
