Apple event at NAB Expo
Apple late Thursday announced that it would hold a special event at next month's NAB Expo for broadcasters and other video producers. Although the company opted out of detailing what would appear at the event, Electronista notes that expectations have Apple releasing a major new edition of Final Cut Studio, which was introduced at the same show in 2005. This year's presentation is currently set for April 15th. While other announcements are possible, the company has generally refrained from revealing hardware or separate software at NAB events in the past. The timing, however, is notable for its proximity to the expected release of Mac OS X Leopard as well as Apple's habitual spring computer updates. The booth for the show floor will also be the largest of all exhibitors, say the show managers.
