Aside from all the new and exciting things to look forward to he takes a sobering look at the reality of the industry where trends such as 4k, IP and even HD to some may not always refl ect the reality of life. Priorities lay in keeping a channel on air, fi nishing an edit on time or returning another fl ight case of clean, serviced kit back to location. You’ll be getting used to our news system now with four sections and Will’s unique comment at the fore of each. Coal face case studies are always good to read and I visited Portsmouth University recently to take a look at how it has elevated the graduation ceremony broadcasting operation into something so organised that it runs like a refi ned and well oiled Swiss watch! The ceremonies are all broadcast live and after 6 years with over 45,000 views the demand has never been higher. To see all the kit used and the workfl ow then take a look at page 48. If you have a day or two to spare then IBC is one of the few shows to run over a weekend and being only a short hop from most UK airports makes a day trip very easy. It’s free to register so just visit www.ibc.org and hope to see you there where you will be immersed in new technology…….and drones no doubt!.
