One iPod to Rule Them…. oh, enough already

via applelinks: Weta’s cyber Tolkien Trail was seeded by a dedicated server, safely isolated from Weta’s intranet and connected to a secure outside line.
Media was transferred from Weta to Pinewood Studios in London. There, Jackson’s 30-gig iPod was ready and waiting to upload Weta’s daily fresh-baked shots and sequences. His iPod was then delivered via sneaker net to his home a few minutes away from Pinewood.
Jackson then viewed those 1K-resolution QuickTime files on an Apple Cinema Display, tied to his G4 laptop, which drew directly from his iPod.
Jackson says the only thing he’d change about the setup is the $15,000 videoconferencing setup they used. Doing it now, he’d replace the whole thing with a $150 iSight.
