Welcome ISSUE 110: FEBRUARY 2016 48 www.kitplus.com Magazine Office: PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK Switchboard: +44 (0)1635 237 237 Welcome. With CES, ISE , BSC and a number of other shows already done for 2016 we are at last, and it’s only February, at BVE in London, the UK’s number one show for everyone involved in the creation to the consumption of video content. BVE are promoting five CPD Theatres packed with technology, training, case studies and more. I read the programme and stopped at CPD wondering if I was missing yet another new industry acronym. Content, programming and delivery maybe? For many with their heads down working endless hours the abbreviation relating to Continued Professional Development may be one that is either just a dream or something that is for ‘someone else’! Call it what you like but with technology moving so fast and new streamlined workflows coming online every second then this is your chance to treat yourself to a few hours of free CPD at BVE. With over 50 sessions there is sure to be something relevant and topical that will connect directly with your business and help with your future aspirations. My indulgence (sorry CPD) will be Jamie Berry whose career from runner to series producer of Walking the Nile is surely a session to inspire anyone. Check out the full programme on the BVE website. These pages do go much further than just the UK and if you’re reading this in Dubai then no doubt you made it to CABSAT which has everything for the broadcast, satellite and digital entertainment professional (their words). Whatever the show you may or may not attend this issue is packed with news and kit information as well as a wealth of knowledge shared by our team from drones to insurance and stabilisers to finance with lots more in between!
