IBC. The superstar of media and technology trade shows. With a wealth of new technology on display and year on year growth in visitors, it’s easy to think its popularity is everlasting, but with the rise of more sophisticated and intimate shows, can we still call it number one? I sat down with my [...]

Ikegami has a new spring in its step, and were showing off their 8K studio camera which has been involved with many of the tests NHK were showing in the Future Zone at IBC, but more likely to find some immediate traction is the 4K UHK-430 studio camera. Ikegami has taken the unusual step [...]

IBC 2016 IN REVIEW

IBC 2016 for me was a pretty extraordinary show. The rate of change in so many aspects of our industry is mind-boggling. Technology changes are inevitable and relentless, driven by manufacturers desire to find the next big thing. It was definitely an IBC to be in “receive” mode with so much going on. Starting with [...]

IBC 2016 – what to look out for

By |2017-07-17T12:15:34+00:00September 6th, 2016|Categories: Broadcast, In the Press, News, Photography, Technology|Tags: , , , |

With IBC 2016 less than a week away, I’m interested to learn what technical progressions are being made, particularly in OB IP infrastructure. There is still an understandable nervousness among tier 1 OB providers to venture too far in to remote production. The wrath of a rights-holder whose live showpiece event gets taken off [...]

Summer & Broadcast…

Facebook told me that summer had started recently, which was helpful as I wrestled with my umbrella. The usual summer slowdown has not taken affect yet though, and people seem, on the whole, pretty busy. Our key markets, Soho Post Production, AV lighting, big sound systems for large events and sports production kit suppliers [...]

NAB 2016: Everything you need to know PT.2

As I emerge from the customary post-NAB haze and try to formulate a coherent analysis of the 2016 show, perhaps the most striking realisation is that despite pacing the halls for four long days, I barely scratched the surface. The scale of the event, much like Las Vegas itself, is simply extraordinary, with over 100,000 [...]
