This will be the venue for several key presentations from Final Cut experts, including Apple's Final Cut Pro product designer Brian Meaney and that company's Paul Saconne.

The Apple staff will "be on hand to present and discuss the latest on Final Cut Pro," the invitation says.

Also on the menu: Gary Adcock from the Chicago FCP User Group who will present a session called 'HDTV and your Creativity: Using HD for Technical and Scientific Analysis.' Also scheduled to appear are Ted Schilowitz from AJA and first assistant editor Eric Jessen who will show and discuss the workflow that created the soon to be released movie, “SkyCaptain and The World of Tomorrow".

Apple announced Final Cut Pro 4 at NAB last year. The company also announced DVD Studio Pro 2 and Shake 3 at the show, which is widely regarded as the world's leading event for professionals in the film and video fields.
