WELCOME ISSUE: 79 JULY 2013 W Magazine Office PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK www.tv-bay.com elcome to issue 79. Our industry has long since been scattered with buzz words and acronyms. We were all streamlining our processes in the late 90’s, producing scalable kit towards the millennium with solutions sold by one-stop-shops. Our workflows have been improving over the last decade with virtualisation playing its part without going OTT! With our new world of multi-platform delivery (another one) there may just be two words on the horizon to sum it all up… How to subscribe All subscription enquiries UK and overseas online at: www.tv-bay.com/subscribe Switchboard +44 (0)1635 237 237 Editor Simon Tillyer, simon@tv-bay.com Production Editor Matt Robbins, matt@tv-bay.com Media dispersion is a good fit describing the myriad of methods to receive and view content and what a great buzz word to cover WiFi, 3G, satellite and cable feeding content to mobile, tablet and tv platforms. Just what however has this got to do with our annual test and measurement featured issue? Advertising Jonathan Highett, jonathan@tv-bay.com Test and measurement gear gets it right from the start. If the very origin of content is done well then the options for its dispersion across a vast multitude of platforms around the planet becomes possible with second and third generation versions suffering little degradation. We asked Steve from Hamlet to polish off his crystal ball and give us an insight as to how he sees this important, but often overlooked, part of the industry in the future. Take a look at page 66. Events Selen Sevket, selen@tv-bay.com Industry magazines are often accused of giving little space for audio preferring to focus on amazing images and cool cameras. We’d like to think tv-bay gives the subject a fair shout and this issue is no different questioning what you do if you can’t hear digital audio? Digital Audio is a very broad and sophisticated subject and we’ve focused on the specific challenges around Dolby® E, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® Digital Plus. Take a look on page 56. Last month’s live show came direct from Panasonics new Solutions Centre in Bracknell, UK. You can catch up with the show, a tour of the new facility, plus get some sound advice on audio for DSLR’s and a run-down of the latest microphone solutions on the BroadcastShow YouTube channel (search tvbaybroadcastshow). Watch out for the new website launching at the end of July packed with interviews, reviews and news! Simon Tillyer, Tv-bay +44 (0)1635 237237 Enjoy the issue.
