An interview from the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Thomas Howley of Manfrotto. Manfrotto is part of the Imaging division of Vitec Group plc, and is the world leader in designing, producing and distributing professional supports, bags and protective gear for the photographic, video and entertainment markets. In this interview Thomas showcases the newly announced Manfrotto Digital Director.
The Digital Director: the only Apple Certified interface that helps users to intuitively manage their photo and video workflow, from the setting of the camera to the sharing of the pictures via a tethered iPad application. The Digital Director is a groundbreaking development signed by Manfrotto that allows for accurate assistance for real time monitoring, a more efficiently post-production managing, and a great level of integration into the workflow: for these reasons, it has just been awarded the Most Innovative Product of NAB 2015.
Digital Director is the ideal companion for pro and hobbyist photographers who are serious about videography and are Apple addicted. Composed by Hardware, Software (APP) and firmware, all gone through the Mfi (Made for iPad) Certification, this innovative product is designed to make shooting photos and videos much smarter: by simply plugging the USB cable in to the camera and turning on the App, photographers and videographers are ensured a reliable high-performance connection between their Canon or Nikon DSLRs and their iPad Air.
A dedicated CPU embedded into the Digital Director provides an interface between the two devices, which via a cable enables the camera protocols to be fully understood and controlled by the iPad. Furthermore, Digital Director enables the user to place the camera even in the
the most awkward or difficult to reach positions.
