WELCOME ISSUE: 76 APRIL 2013 W Magazine Office PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK How to subscribe All subscription enquiries UK and overseas online at: www.tv-bay.com/ subscribe www.tv-bay.com Switchboard +44 (0)1635 237 237 Editor Simon Tillyer, simon@tv-bay.com elcome to issue 76. When you’re on the final question of “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” and are faced with the names Neill & Concelman and what they invented you may be wishing you had saved a life line. Add the word “Bayonet” in front however and you might just work out these gentlemen were largely behind the BNC connector which has been around since the late 1940’s. With increased bandwidths and signal demands over the last decade you could be forgiven for thinking it is at the end of the line. Have a read on page 40 to see just where we are with today’s connections! Connections are at the forefront of this issue with the theme being IP, satellite and cellular transmission technology. At NAB we’ll be using the new JVC GY-HM650 which has the ability to FTP files via a 3G or 4G dongle. In our application we’ll be recording interviews at the show and then uploading them for editing in the UK and then adding to social networks all within a matter of hours from capture. You’ll be able to see the fruits of our labours on the NAB event page of www.broadcastshow.com plus the “tv-bay” Facebook page, our YouTube channel and by a daily NAB email we’ll send out. Watch out also for our live hour long show each day from the show floor from 5pm UK time at www.broadcastshow.com/live. Also in this connectivity issue we get back to basics with MPEG-DASH, ask our experts about cellular uplinking and take a look at what is involved in maintaining quality of service throughout. Just what all this has to do with a supermarket car park you’ll have to turn to page 48 to discover! Places for our UK tour are filling up fast so if you’d like to come along to one of the 5 cities then please register at www.broadcastshow.com/tour where you’ll also find all the information on exhibitors and free seminars throughout the day – see page 30 for more info. You could be reading issue this from a number of places; boarding the Virgin plane to NAB, picking it up at the show in Las Vegas, landing on your doorstep or maybe one of the growing band reading somewhere in the world with the new tv-bay app. Wherever you are then I hope you enjoy the issue.
