Welcome ISSUE 105: SEPTEMBER 2015 www.kitplus.com Welcome, bienvenue, welkom, benventu, willkommen, bienvenida... Magazine Office: o ewbur R It’s IBC of course where the world of pro video and broadcast gathers in Amsterdam to see the latest technology updates and releases. There have already been some very cool product leaks and previews ahead of the show. How to subscribe: All subscription enquiries UK and overseas online at: www.kitplus.com/subscribe The road map of our once hardware based industry into an IT business transformed by IP has never been more apparent where bespoke platforms have given way to open source editing, archive and distribution with consumers driven by software updates and bandwidth. If you’re not convinced then IBC will see the proof of concept “LiveIP Project’ where a live TV production studio built around IP and IT centric hardware and software will be on show. More on all of these industry changing technologies from Will Strauss within our news pages starting on page 6. Editor: Simon Tillyer, simon@tv-bay.com For more on industry trends then who better to comment than Peter Savage who discusses his fi ve e pectations at ranging rom k to and considerations for HD and UHD. If we had room in this issue we’d have loved to include a jargon busting acronym dictionary but maybe we’ll leave a few more hundred to be announced at the show and report back in the autumn!

This month he opens up with the lessons he’s learnt from live streaming, if you’re like us then you’re sure to relate to some if not all of the issues he’s faced.
