The question of “what’s next” is a constant in technology and without
it then the next 97 pages would be slightly dull!
At the cutting edge of what we might experience in the future is the BBC’s
Research and Development team and the excellent Commonwealth Games
was an opportunity for them to showcase this innovation. As a taster this
included live coverage broadcast over 4G mobile networks for the ﬁ rst time in
the UK, live virtual reality giving 360 degree views and Ultra-HD offering viewers
the chance to zoom and explore the venue. Venue Explorer offers a single ﬁ xed
wide angle UHD camera in a stadium with you choosing the part you wish to
zoom / focus on and the audio being relevant to that frame – and all maintaining
HD resolution. You can read all about it on page 70
From next month we’ll be introducing a new group of student ﬁ lmmakers and
ahead of this we’ve set the scene with the new studio recently commissioned
at the University of Portsmouth. This ties in nicely with the topic of the month
where we look at studio lighting, virtual sets (and reality), Q&A and prompting to
name just a few.
Aside from kit reviews and discussion we have some words for wisdom for
wannabe Directors which according to some is a craft that can’t be taught any
more than you can teach art. There are however some directional skills shared
in this issue by David Crossman where he points out “my job is a director, not a
dictator”. Read it all on page 42
From behind his edit desk Larry Jordan is this month shivering at the phrase
“don’t worry we’ll ﬁ x it in post” and gets to grips with chroma keys and planning
with his nine rules for green-screen production.
With IBC just around the corner you can see some preview
news and from next month expect a few changes…
