Since my last article in November I have been flat out working on a large range of different projects both for the course and outside. We have recently finished our IPTV studio unit for which we decided to create a music show that would help to promote local artists. The project was very stressful at the start but once we organised all of our artists and got going it was very enjoyable and rewarding. We are now hoping to film a lot more studio sessions with a range of local musicians on a regular basis.

I was lucky enough to meet local film maker Dean Huson and have since been helping him when needed on his current documentary Whats Real The Evolution of Hip Hop A documentary that looks at the development of the genre, talks about how and why Hip Hop stared, its influence and how it can be used as medium for positive social change. Working on this project has been a great experience for me and as a hip hop fan it has been a complete pleasure to work on with amazing experiences like meeting and filming an interview with legendary Hip Hop duo Dead Prez.

At the end of last month we got the chance to attend BVE in London, something I had been wanting to do for a while but was sadly unable to attend the previous year. As the camera geek of the group I had been really looking forward to BVE as it was a chance for me to look at and get hands on with all of the equipment I had been drooling at on the internet for the past year.

We have recently been lucky enough to have a talk from Gareth Unwin producer of The Kings Speech among other films. Gareths talk was fantastic, it gave me a great insight into his life and how he got into the industry but the main thing I really enjoyed was that he individually asked us all what we wanted to do and gave us guidance on how we could go about making our next step. We were also allowed to watch a sneak peak for a programme that was about to be pitched to a large television company, it was fantastic looking at his work and being given advice from an award-winning producers work.

We have recently started work planning our final pieces. Our brief is quite loose which allows us to be creative with ideas, the only restriction is that it has to over 15minutes in length. After watching a range of videos and brainstorming a few ideas myself, Joseph and Matthew have started to plan and script a short film about deceit and abduction which we are hoping to start filming at the start of April.

A switch in time: how KVM can unlock the future of broadcasting
Chris Smeeton

One of the major changes for broadcasters during the pandemic has been the shift towards remote production; by no means a new phenomenon in an IP environment, yet accelerated under lockdown to accommodate travel and gathering restrictions. A 2021 report found that almost 40% of broadcast professionals now employ remote production, up 9% on the previous year.

Cloud integration: The only way is up
Francois Vaillant

In 2017 we saw the introduction of SMPTE 2110 and since then, the transition to IP has emerged as a priority for broadcasters looking to streamline their operations, decrease their footprint and effectively integrate with an industry in a rapid state of flux. A 2020 survey by Devoncroft found that almost 20% of broadcasters had already deployed SMPTE 2110, and over 25% were planning to do so. Then came the pandemic, precipitating the need for on-the-fly collaboration and accelerating the transition to remote, virtual and cloud production.

The Cloud - a measured approach
Ciaran Doran

With the buzz of ‘cloud’ everywhere in our industry it would be natural to think that cloud is the only game in town. Isn’t it time to step back and consider very carefully how, or whether, you make that journey to the cloud?

Meeting the specification
Chris Smeeton

A good technical specification will detail precisely what is required, from the equipment to the cables connecting it. Many specifications will give  particular manufacturers and model numbers. On many occasions, this makes tendering simple and gives vendors a secure and fair way to bid.
