Welcome ISSUE 93: SEPTEMBER 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.kitplus.com T Switchboard +44 (0)1635 237 237 Editor Simon Tillyer, simon@tv-bay.com hose eagle eyed regulars may have spotted a name change..? “tv-bay” has done us proud for 10 years and has always reflected our origins of online classified advertising giving thousands of users the opportunity to buy, sell and network online. Production Editor Matt Robbins, matt@tv-bay.com Although our arms have stretched out over the years still at the very heart of everything we are passionate about is KIT. We use it, we write about it and in recent time have taken it on the road in the form of regional road shows. PLUS there is so much more to what we can now offer than just kit and although the magazine has always been about the technology used in the industry, the new website (due any time now) will bring together our many hundreds of articles, reviews, video interviews and bi annual roadshow information under one name for easier navigation and access to quite possibly the industry’s most useful resource! It’s a phased transition so watch this space.

If you hadn’t noticed it’s IBC time where tens of thousands of professionals gather in Amsterdam to see the latest kit launching and attend world class conference sessions. Surviving IBC is not easy so we’ve asked someone who has been to every show in every country for the last 100 years to give us his wisdom, Larry Jordan downs his edit software for an issue with suggestions from shoes to what to ask and who to see. Our news section has had a shake-up, quite literally Will Strauss, in his new regular slot as KitPlus News Analyst, lost his rag with regurgitated press releases and made battle with over 150k words of news and what came out is punchy, sharp and to the point. Feedback please but we think you’ll enjoy it. Aside from our Location and Live OB topic of the month, where we cover everything from drones to wireless mic to prompting in a fi eld, we look at shooting cinematically with Philip Bloom and Den Lennie, introduce 4 new students, unveil your “6 of the best” items of kit and welcome back Peter Savage with an aptly timed look at rebranding. As always I hope you enjoy the issue Back copies Can be seen online at... www.tv-bay.com/magazine. Hard copies available from the offi ce on request.
