W elcome to issue 82.
The whirlwind of IBC is now behind us and it’s time to reflect on what
was there, what stood out and what people will be investing in over the
coming few months.
With an overriding feeling of 4K around the show this year from ingest through to
broadcast it’s easy to see that this predicted format will be hitting living rooms around
the world very soon. What about the massive file sizes of 4K I hear you ask – will
we ever have an infrastructure for consumers to receive this in their homes? Video
delivery has already seen several significant jumps in compression technology and
now with the new HEVC standard set firmly in the sights of many broadcasters it may
all happen a lot sooner than we think. If you’re new to HEVC or just need a recap
we have a great article covering it on page 74. There were of course technology
concepts on show at IBC and one that caught our eye in particular is on page 38 –
take a look.
If you didn’t make it to IBC this year then maybe you caught our live show
each morning (streamed on www.broadcastshow.com) or have had time
to peruse the many exhibitor interviews now online. You can see them all
by zapping this QR code or visiting www.broadcastshow.com and just
searching IBC 2013.
You’ll see many QR codes throughout the IBC news and review sections which will
link you directly to a relevant video interview. Will Strauss also has his IBC top ten
innovations on page 36 that gives a good overview and, following the theme from my
intro, is 4K heavy!
So if you didn’t make it to IBC and prefer to get your hands on kit rather than
watching it on the small screen then why not come and see it at the BroadcastShow
Tour later this month. We’ll be dropping by Belfast, Leeds
and Pinewood Studios accompanied by many exhibitors as
well as Philip Bloom with talks during the day. It’s all free just
