TV has got good. Really good…

By | February 7th, 2017|Categories: Broadcast, In the Press, News, Photography, Technology|

TV has got good. Really good. Not all of it of course, but two pieces of TV I’ve seen recently have been truly stunning. My daughter is 10. There isn’t much that we can both watch and enjoy. Thankfully she thinks as much of Honey G as I do, and there is only so much [...]

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

By | September 16th, 2016|Categories: Broadcast, In the Press, News, Photography, Technology|Tags: , , , |

IBC 2016 for me was a pretty extraordinary show. The rate of change in so many aspects of our industry is mind-boggling.

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.

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 [...]

The annual Guild Of Television Cameramen ( GTC ) Open Day and AGM was held recently in the Oxfordshire countryside on a sunny Sunday.
