Apple at Tour de France

UK-based ITV covered Tour de France, a three-week cycling event, using , according an article posted by Apple. As Lance Armstrong made history with an unprecedented seventh consecutive Tour win, a London-based "dream team utilized a "dream workflow" that included Apple Xsan with four 5.6TB Xserve RAID systems, giving the team over 20TB of storage at DVCPro 50 resolution. The team used Final Cut Pro and PictureReady! to quickly produce results while footage was still being recorded. "PictureReady! sort of 'deceives' Final Cut Pro into thinking it is working with a closed QuickTime file. It allowed us to cut out the traditional digitizing process and access material before digitizing was complete. We ran three copies of the application on three Power Mac G5s, all of which could be in record at once."
