Bob Pank looks at the size of 4k
Bob Pank# The television industry has had many new technological eras in recent years. Only two years ago we were still a 3D era; the latest of the many that have surfaced and sunk over the years of cinema, making it recurring fad. Now 4K / UHD is firmly grabbing the attention of equipment manufacturers as well as production and broadcaster / media folk, and increasingly, the public.

Twas the issue before Christmas;
Will Strauss# As its nearly Christmas, I figured, what better way to honor the end of anther year than to celebrate everything that has gone before? To do that, Ive picked my favourite production technology innovations of 2012. But, as were fast approaching the festive season, Ive compiled them in the form a Christmas shopping list. Yes, I know. Its genius. Why has no one ever thought of this before? They have? Oh well. Its too late now. Hopefully, there should be something here for everyone in your extended family (assuming your extended family is either ensconced in the television industry or extremely weird).

Testing times of a 4K world
N/A The term '4K' applies to some five slightly different picture formats with around 4,000 pixel horizontal resolution: all much bigger than HD. In fact roughly four times the total pixels required for 1920 x 1080 pixel high definition. 4K has been around for some years but was until recently only affordable by producers with mega budgets. Advances in camera sensor and display technology are now allowing manufacturers to offer 4K products at prices not too much more than their high definition equivalents.

Will Strauss# For whole swathes of people within the television industry the concept of digital production - and what we generally refer to as going tapeless is probably now considered slightly old hat.

BVE 2012 in no particular order.......
N/A If you read TV-Bay regularly, you will already be aware of the main trends in video and audio product development. BVE 2012 reflected these very accurately, notably the ongoing transition to file-based content capture and the growing interest in compact cameras. A good way to identify hot new products at any trade event is to identify which stands are attracting the biggest flock of visitors. Lets look at some of the key BVE crowd-pullers.

The art of 3D
Bob Pank# Two recent events have expanded my understanding of 3D. BVE North turned out to be quite busy both around the exhibition and at the many free seminars. Of course I made a beeline for the 3D Revolution Theatre where there were sessions throughout the two days of the show.

Back to Basics with Stereo 3D
N/A The demand for compelling content to meet the need is growing, and of course, stereo 3D work comes with challenges. Like everything else in production and post, creating good 3D is part art, part science. Going back to the basics of the science can inform artistic and equipment decisions and keep 3D headaches at bay.
