Magazine Offi ce PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK WELCOME How to subscribe All subscription enquiries UK and overseas online at: www.tv-bay.com/subscribe Switchboard +44 (0)1635 237 237 www.tv-bay.com ISSUE 89: MAY 2014 Editor Simon Tillyer, simon@tv-bay.com O k, listen up – no time for incoherent mumbling of words and with the amount of news generated from NAB there is barely room to fit everything in the 100 pages we have. Sadly dropped (due to space) from this print issue is our mergers and acquisitions section. We don’t often promote a dropped feature but news streaming out of NAB had a plethora of partnerships, some signed on the eve of the show. Fortunately digital ezines allow for unlimited pages and you can take a look at tv-bay online for all the extra bits. Following on from his branding article last month Dick Hobbs gives comment on the merger of two established brands in the industry and the development of IP transport for the future on page 104. If you’re on LinkedIn then you may have a few endorsements. It struck me recently having been endorsed for “New Media” that before accepting it I should investigate exactly what it is. Offi cially “New Media” does not include magazines, books, or paper- based publications – unless they contain technologies that enable digital interactivity. On-demand access to content anytime, anywhere, on any digital device, as well as interactive user feedback comes under the “New Media” umbrella and our 75 video interviews generated at NAB certainly tick that box. They can all be viewed, and commented upon, on YouTube right now… ...endorsement accepted with thanks! If you’ve been reading tv-bay since the mid 2000’s then no doubt Bob Pank’s regular column, starting 76 issues ago, would have given some insight into the industry over the years. Originally his “website of the month” column looked at a variety of online information and following several technical articles developed into his popular “3D diaries” series followed by “thinking Cloud”. 4k has taken up much of his word count over the last 12 months and this issue is no different with his thoughts from NAB. The only difference is this is the last in Bob’s series as he hangs up his boots for a well- deserved retirement. We wish him well. For more mumbling on audio topics then take a look at the ITTP’s comments on page 50, arguments range from technical training to actors acting too well, with the case in question of course being Jamaica Inn, we’d like to thank the BBC for timing this so perfectly with the annual audio featured issue of tv-bay.
