MacVoices #13115: NAB – MovieSlate Serves Up A Sophisticated Digital Slate, Shot Logger and Much More

On the show floor at NAB 2013 in Las Vegas, Cliff Joyce  of PureBlend Software Design Group shows off the power of MovieSlate, an iPad app that looks like a clapperboard, but does so much more. As a digital slate, it excels, but if you look deeper, you will shot logging capabilities, a notepad, and optional support for Timecode, multi cam, audio and more. Cliff talks about all of these functions, the history of the app, how it started as a tool just for him, and how it grew to  something much more sophisticated. Cliff also gives us  something of a scoop about the next improvement to the app,  MovieSlate Cloud, a way to upload your shot logs and other metadata captured by MovieSlate to a cloud location for ingestion to production systems.
