Video thumbnail for vimeo video Watch: Light Iron's Michael Cioni Tours Media Innovations (Including Final Cut Pro X) - nofilmschoolLight Iron is a post-production company that is no stranger to innovation. The company is known for its handling of Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its end-to-end 4K production — as well as its on-set hardware and software tools. Given LI’s progressive attitude, it isn’t too surprising that CEO Michael Cioni recently sat down to present a variety of non-Light Iron production tools (with one exception) that he sees as innovations.

Some of the biggest news of the first day was the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera, which I had a few moments to play with and take a look at, and I also had a great interview with Simon Westland of Blackmagic. Some other big news was the announcement of the AJA Ki Pro Quad 4K recorder, and SmallHD’s new DP7 display, which has two versions – one with a very bright LCD and the other with an OLED – which reproduces colors impeccably.
