How todays technology platforms can make AMAZING seem mundane
Bruce Devlin - new Some things never change. It's September and it's time for another IBC. Maybe I'm getting old and maybe I have selective memory about the past, but recently there hasn't been the buzz of years gone by. Sure, as you wander around the vast halls there will be lots of enthusiastic sales people trying to give you the best demo possible, but something has changed and to survive, I believe that vendors and customers need to change too.

Dialog-based search accelerates content discovery for anyone with a media library
Drew Lanham If you can't find it, then you can't reuse it. Those are a broadcaster's words to live by as media libraries grow at exponential rates. But the need to find and reuse media assets is not confined to large, traditional broadcasters. Organizations of all types and sizes are finding that the ability to uncover media assets quickly and use them immediately is the key to creating new and compelling programming, fulfilling programming requirements, serving their constituents, and realizing revenue streams. The question is, "How?" The answer is, "phonetic-based dialog search."

The Autoue Motion Pro camera stabiliser
Matt Lyne

The Autocue Motion Pro camera stabiliser is a brilliant piece of kit for getting high movement shots whilst also maintaining the ability to pan/tilt with ease. It is light compared to similar functioning stabilisers however prolonged use will quickly tire out your arm due to the manner in which you hold it with one hand at almost arms length but that said, it’s far less tiring than similar steadicams such as a Glidecam.

Making an advert with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Brandon Kahn When Mothers Basement came to us with an advert to put on UK cinema screens, I knew my trusty, but basic, XF 305 wasnt going to cut it. Sure, most ads you see in cinema are projected in regular HD and are often shot no higher than 1080, but I felt we needed some extra size.

4K is bigger than size alone
Bob Pank# It seems that numbers are a great eye-catcher and 4K was everywhere at NAB, and will be at IBC too. Here, of course, we are talking about a TV system with four times number of pixels of HD, namely a picture area of 3840x2160 for TV, or for cinema 4096x2160.

The Teradek Bolt reviewed
Jon Boast The end of last year saw Teradek step up the game even more in the HD wireless monitoring world, with its announcement of The Bolt, a wireless HD-SDI monitoring system. The first thing that struck many on its launch was the size of both the transmitter and the receiver.

Bob Pank busts the cloud!
Bob Pank#

Too may of us can remember the Eyjafjallajokull volcano incident that stopped thousands of Europeans travelling back from NAB 2010. After a long show in the desert many were looking forward to home, real beer and green green grass. But the transport system that had always worked so well was out of commission, and suddenly it was clear that nothing could be done except keeping in touch with the airline, and hoping.

Ask the experts: What lens?
[author]
When choosing the right lens for your project, there are a huge range of options to choose from that depend entirely on your individual project and your needs. You need to think about the quality of filming you require, where the content will be placed, what camera you will be using to shoot it and how you plan to store it before being able to make a sensible choice. And with the emergence of 4K technology and the possibility of publishing content online, the range of choices becomes even greater. Where on earth do you start?

Wireless Audio at the sharp end
N/A It's noisy, it's very, very hot, but then often it can be cold or raining but it's still noisy and everything has to be de-rigged and moved to another country, sometimes in a different continent, every two weeks did I mention it's noisy? Formula 1 motor racing has never been more popular witnessed at the tracks by thousands and watched on the TV by in excess of 500 million more and this audience expects and gets the highest quality coverage.

AF101 a first look

Incidentally the AF100 & AF101 are the same basic camera for different markets, all of them are NTSC/PAL switchable.
