New season of Are We There Yet? W hen cinematographer Bill Berner began to gear up for the new season of the multi-camera comedy Are We There Yet? he said it was a no brainer, that Vinten would be his support of choice.  Alan Yentob to join board of BBC Studios and post production business Alan Yentob, the BBC’s Creative Director, is to join the Board of BBC Studios and Post Production Limited as a non-executive director. A commercial subsidiary of the BBC, the company offers world- class studios, post production and digital media services to the media industry. Based at Londons Television Centre, Elstree and Bristol, it works in partnership with media companies creating and managing content across all genres for a variety of broadcasters including ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky and the BBC.  “We are on a ludicrously tight schedule on our show,” he explains. “We have no time to deal with equipment failures, or even regular maintenance. Every piece of gear must work flawlessly all the time. On our budget, we can’t afford to keep a spare ped and head around just in case. With the Quattro-L, Quattro-SL and Vector 70s it’s been a non-issue. In two words Vinten is quality and reliability. We just take them for granted, which actually says a lot.”  RiLink Global Fiber Service s at See u BVE 2, Court Earls H60 nd Sta www.vinten.com Mobile file sharing apps The alternative to satellite uplinks: RiLink is the new way to broadcast live signals from remote event locations or foreign studios to the home facility.
