In the spring of 1924 Lyta built the first dedicated device for editors but it would be more than sixty years before digital equivalents, like the EMC2 and the Avid/1 arrived. In the intervening years individuals and teams imagined wondrous tools that could turn images into entertainment in the blink of an eye. Timeline 2 is the journey of those inventors from an oily warehouse in Burlington to the air conditioned cubicles of Silicon Valley. Timeline 2 covers the years 1988 to 2000, and contains exclusive interviews with all the key players including Randy Ubillos, Bill Warner, John Molinari, Bruce Rady, Ivan Maltz, Nick Schlott, Glenn Reid, Jack Buchanan and the QuickTime team. Here is an insight into the development of Final Cut Pro, Avid, Media 100, D-Vision, iMovie in:sync, Premiere, Ediflex,ImMIX and many other systems from a personal perspective, told for the first time. Timeline 2 and its companion book Timeline 1 shine a light on the remarkable tools that editors have used for all of the ages.
