I was excited to come and see the Nuage. And it's a great looking product to be honest. I examined and fiddled with the board about 4-5 times while I was there. I didn't go into the big booth because it seemed like a private affair and, honestly, I didn't need the big setup that was in the room. But the board in front of the entrance was more of what I was interested in and it was accessible by simply walking up.
In my experience, there always seemed to be several people standing around examining it. But there really wasn't anyone showing it off. Heck, I actually showed off the channel scrolling feature to a guy just standing there which got a big "Hey, that's cool" smile. I finally got a rep to talk to me. My first question was about dealing with inserts. He brought up an insert which showed up in the middle of one of the screens, replacing the fader banks. I said OK, but how do it put multiple inserts up on the screen at once? Can this be done? His answer - 'No, you can't do that."
And that was it. He had nothing else to offer about anything else.
No Nuage for me. And that's the one thing I came to see.
