Welcome to the latest episode of our weekly roundup of news from the TV and film industry.

This week we are featuring the new Sony BURANO firmware roadmap, the latest Premiere Pro October 2023 (v24.0) update from Adobe, and the brand new Shure SM7dB dynamic microphone for professional podcasters and streamers.

Sony BURANO Firmware Roadmap

Sony have released the current firmware roadmap for their latest Sony BURANO cinema camera. Due to ship in Q1 next year, the current firmware roadmap reveals a firmware v1.1 which will give the BURANO multi-cam capabilities with S700 PoE support, in addition to a 1.5x anamorphic de-squeeze function sometime in August-September next year. Other planned upgrades for now include a 4:3 imager scan mode for anamorphic capture, 1.8x de-squeeze and a clean HDMI output for monitoring. You can keep an eye out on this evolving roadmap via the link below. We would also like thank all of you who came down to Pinewood Studios last week and got to play with the BURANO during our hands-on event and we're looking forward to hosting another one in the future once the camera ships.

Adobe Premiere Pro October 2023 Update

Adobe has released their October 2023 update for Premiere Pro dubbed v24.0 boasting some impressive speed improvements when it comes to timeline performance and new text-based editing features, which enables you to delete all pauses with a single click. The new Video Effects Manager makes it easy to manage all your third-party plugins in one place, while the new Audio Auto-Tag feature automatically tags audio files as Dialogue, Music, SFX, or Ambience. In addition, the simplified colour settings make it easier to make your footage shine work without extra hassle.

Shure SM7dB Dynamic Microphone for Podcasters and Streamers

Shure has introduced a new version of their iconic SM7B dynamic microphone. Designed for professional podcasters, video streamers and broadcasters, the new SM7dB model inherits that same benchmark broadcast radio quality rich sound we are all familiar with, but now also adds a built-in preamp making it more user-friendly for the modern content creation workflow. The integrated pre-amp gives users a choice of +18 or +28 dB of clean gain, eliminating the need for a separate preamp while still preserving signal integrity. Ideal for podcasts and broadcast interviews, the new SM7dB features bass roll-off and presence boost, both of which can be applied to best fit the sound source and recording environment.
