As you may have heard, there is a security flaw in a widely used logging library: Log4j. At Softron, we don't use Java, Java libraries, nor Apache in our software thus was not impacted by this breach. While we don't use Java software in development, we went a step further to ensure your security. We audited our software to confirm it is not used in any Softron code nor libraries that depend on it. At Softron, we develop most of our code internally and rely on as few external libraries as possible-- this has been our approach for many years. Though using external libraries can save some developing time, we prefer to remain in control of our code and any possible consequences. As an adding precaution, if you are running Softron software in a sensitive environment, we recommend that you check other software installed on your Mac to confirm your security is not compromised by Log4j.
All our software should be working fine with Big Sur and Monterey. There could be some incompatibility issues with older version, so we recommend using a recent version. Make sure to check this article to know which version to use.
It's just crazy what you can do with a MacBook Pro M1 Max and our software. We use all the power of the ProRes media engines. Just an example of a benchmark: with M|Replay, in HD60p, we encoded 14 channels + decoded 14 channels, and still 40% CPU free.
Terrific show over the last three days, and we'd like to thank Olivier Greoli, Matt Timmons, Bryce Seifert, Virgil Beljambe, and Jules Elkan for their participation in the Live panels, and to those who joined the discussions and who booked one-on-one meetings with our team.
