Welcome ISSUE 96: DECEMBER 2014 www.kitplus.com T his last issue of 2014 is featuring “new technologies” and topping the list of entries is, not surprisingly, 4k. With some much spoken about 4k cameras on the market it’s questionable how long this format will be considered “new” but worth remembering the move to 4k is not all about acquisition but involves a financial hit for the broadcaster in terms of infrastructure from playout to data storage for the standard to be fully established. Magazine Office: PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK Whilst consumers are tempted by mega tv set deals there remains a defi nite gap in the broadcast workfl ow between capturing the 4k content and delivering it to viewers. This month we have a wealth of information including IP delivery possibilities to ensure that 4k to the home becomes a reality.

We have a feedback and photo frenzy on page 38 so do take a look. We simply ran out of room for all the comments but we have maximised space for those that needed addressing with replies where we can. Taking on board all of your feedback we’re now looking forward to June 2015 where we take on Manchester, Bristol (you have been asking us to come back for a while now!), Birmingham and London. All the info is www.kitplus.com. This issue also marks the start of a series from Den Lennie, this month discussing what your perfect business might look like. It’s a good insight for those needing a monthly fi x of solid advice, and if you need more then check out his new book. Turn to page 50 for all the info on the ITTP conference in January (or the advert opposite) and if you have an interest in training (providing or receiving) then do register for the event at Pinewood on 27 th January 2015 www.ittp.org.uk. Dick Hobbs concludes the issue with a seasonal round-up of primetime commercials, from Monty the penguin to fairies with no road awareness. There is a point to all this though which I won’t spoil so early on but do turn to page 98 for some festive cheer. With season’s greetings from us all...
