Honey, I shrunk the TV truck

Android Central @ CES

Cali and Kevin got to sit down with Philip Nelson of NewTek to discuss how they were able to pack what used to fit in a whole truck all inside of one rather small box. While it may not be Android related, it is some amazing tech, and to be honest we all love great technology -- right? NewTek was kind enough to sponsor CESlive this year, and we are extremely thankful that we were able to bring you all this technology thanks to them.

If you want to see how NewTek shrunk the TV truck and fit it into a portable box be sure to check out the full interview above.

NewTek shows how they fit a TV truck in a box #CESlive


Why did this guy post the same exact comment THREE times???

Easy. There's a bug in the Android app and/or the Web service that serves as the back-end that occasionally creates multi-posts. It's happened to me several times. Luckily you can delete posts with the mobile app by long-pressing them.

I've been using a Tricaster for about 5 years. It's an excellent machine for videographers. Live, professional video production capabilities with our unit, smaller than a desktop computer tower.

Yes. A young Christie Turlington. However, have you ever thought about how overvalued beauty is? Beautiful women are pretty common. Intelligence is much more rare, in both sexes. Yet women in tech journalism seem to be selected because of their attractiveness. I'm not saying they aren't otherwise qualified, but it seems looks will get you to the head of the line. Meanwhile, on the male side it's completely evident that looks aren't even considered. Double standard? It's pretty obvious. It's not just tech though. Look at the female sideline reporters in the NFL.

I work for a tech company in Silicon Valley and can definitively say that the women engineers here are not hired for their looks.

NewTek brings back such memories. They are the ones that produced the legendary demo on the Commodore Amiga which had a window divided into four videos running simultaneously. This was 1985. Macs were black and white and PCs had 16 colors at best. The Amiga had 4096. Watching that demo as a teen geek was elegiacal. I saw the future, but it would take a couple decades for it to come to fruition.

I still have my Amiga. It still works. What other 25-year old tech can you say that about?
