WELCOME ISSUE 90: JUNE 2014 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 I like even years, and I am not superstitious of course. It just means that there is a greater chance to socialise around a big screen somewhere with friends and family. Coming up in the next few weeks, if not already upon us, are The Commonwealth Games, Wimbledon and the Tour De France. What do all these have in common in 2014? They are all in the UK, with Le Tour having the first two stages in Yorkshire. Add in some good weather and production and hire companies, as well as the local pub, will all be very happy! The World Cup is said to be the biggest sporting event in the world so unsurprisingly will probably steal the main stage of viewing numbers with 88 broadcasting rights holders present inside the broadcast centre in Brazil. As large screen TV’s are fl ying off the supermarket shelves in time to catch the action there will be 4k cameras in place for the fi rst time in the production set-up. Maybe in 2018 we’ll be able to view their output in our living rooms? For those interested in the boxes delivering the coverage then take a look at Will Strauss’s article on page 40. I am sure everyone has had a data disaster in the past and mostly we learn by our lack of back-up or how we look after this content. Imagine a whole year of content lost with no chance of retrieval. That’s just what happened to Nino Leitner and some years on, now an award winning DoP & fi lmmaker, he writes about his lessons learned. This issue also gets back to basics with dialogue searching, explores disaster recovery, looks at simplifying your workfl ow as well as having top reviews from leading cameramen and working pro’s. If you do get some time away from the TV or are sport adverse then this issue is a must for everyone! So come on England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland at the Games in Glasgow, Frome for Le Tour, Murray for the tennis and England for the cup… where’s that lucky rabbits foot when you need one.
