  • XeonD-2100
  • Laptop editing and hotel WiFi weren't exactly great for 4K video production and uploading, but I hope you find that the hardware close-ups were worth the wait!

    VMworld attendee Dennis Lewis from Vox Mobile earns some smiles, thanks to his mad handstand skills.

    Again this year, I had a lot of fun roaming around VMworld 2018 US with my iRig Mic, which does a solid job at keeping out the ambient noise that is typical at such conferences. If I'd only learn to not talk so loudly myself, which sometimes clipped my voice a bit. Hoping you won't notice, with all pixels of video, in 4K glory! Yeah, uploading over hotel WiFi was a many hour proposition

    iRig Mic HD 2 on Amazon, comes with Lightning cable for iOS and Micro USB cable for Android.

    Admittedly, having booth duties and presentations/demos of my own this week keeps me focused on short videos of just a few vendors during the spare moments that I had. Hopefully you'll find the content of value, as I visit vendors of interest, completely unscripted. Yeah, I asked for permission to record first, but that was usually just moments before the camera was rolling, neither of us really knew what would happen. That's the fun of it!
