It’s the Test and Measurement issue this month, now hold on and stick with me for a moment, we’ve had our wrists slapped in the past for referring to greying engineering types – we have great respect for you all and won’t go there again! But we all want to understand what we need to do, when we need to do it and indeed what we need to do it with, but there is a theme with test equipment that can sometimes take you down a path of head pain and confusion – more often than not to those that need it most. Will Strauss takes a look at what’s on the market in the hand held range of test and measurement kit on page 36. As well as throwing up some great solutions there is mention that maybe we need to spice it up and a new branding for T & M would do it the world of good ...”technology rescue”, “disaster avoidance gear”....your thoughts to Production Editor Matt Robbins, Advertising Jonathan Highett,jonathan@tv-bay. com Accounts Lucy Turner, Events Selen Sevket, Subscriptions If you are serious about future proofing your acquisition and were shooting HD in an SD world and now shoot 3D in the hope of using it when there is a viable change in consumer viewing ability then when will you be trading up to a 4K camera?
