We've recently been busy making some very exciting and positive changes to the KitPlus Magazine and this may impact on any deadlines you have already been working towards.

The key changes are that we are now bigger by 50% (148 pages), bi-monthly from July and we think feature schedules are a bit old fashioned these days so we have abolished them! When you've got something to say you need to get it out there and not wait until a magazine decides it's the right time for you to have your say and with our brand new format every issue is right for you!

The bulk and frequency of the publication will ensure longevity of both editorial and advertising with increased readership from sharing, online, social media and simply being around for two months not one.

The editorial format for EVERY issue will include the four main sections below and within these we welcome any topics including, not exclusively, those listed. When you add news to our online pressroom you will notice you now have to select one of those four sections so also within these pages of relevant featured content will be perfectly placed news.

By arranging editorial in this manner we will immediately offer a more diverse and interesting print magazine to the readership whilst at the same time be able to directly target advertising to a relevant audience sector.

With thousands of pre show emails clogging inboxes with paragraphs of text, be a little different, stand out from the crowd and get you message across in under 60 seconds! (or longer if you want?) Shoot your video before your next event and attract people to your stand.

Now being shot by KitPlus. Either green
screen at our Newbury studio or on location
at your offices!

The Format:
The customer would need to be prepared and well scripted (detailed or with reminders on the prompter) and, if they are using a prompter, we'd ideally like the script in advance.
We would aim to spend around 2 hrs shooting on location with about 30 minute set up.

The footage will be edited to 1 or 2 (depending on how efficient and simple) videos for upload to YouTube or similar channel.

In order to meet with your branding we would need, company logo (vector.eps .ai .pdf or similar) colour refs, font specs, background image (if green screen) cutaways & screen records if they can be done ahead, product names, names of people, credits and
any specific requirements.

Titles and on screen text should be specified if required where possible to strengthen the message being spoken.

We offer free promotion of all videos produced by us on our video pages online and in return request a simple end credit as the video
fades to black.

The video would appear in the customer style.

Media information and
circulation statistics

Web site:

After 6 months in development tv-bay was launched at NAB, Las Vegas, in 2004 and was an immediate hit with both private and professional sellers alike. Within a few months the numbers grew to over 200 unique IP addresses a day and now in 2013 we have over 3500 per day visiting from around the world but with the majority being in UK (25%), USA (12%) and Europe (approx. 40%). We now only promote web stats from Google Analytics as there are so many variant web analysis tools etc. which include non-human traffic (bots) which just confuse the issue when they appear in their millions.

We have made a small amount of banner advertising space available so if you are interested in these opportunities then please email You may also take advantage of "service banners" which are keyword specific and appear against all adverts matching your chosen word or phrase.

The tv-bay magazine (rebranded KITPLUS, September 2014) was launched in June 2006 and is printed monthly. Initially, as we built our database, the publication was sent to over 7000 UK subscribers who had shown interest at the many trade shows we attend (we are normally hard to miss!) and via tv-bay online. We, and our readers, love print - its tangible, hangs around in offices for ages, has countless 2nd/ 3rd/ 4th hand readers and, when part of an online portfolio, is the perfect reference point. The down side of print though is the ever rising UK postage but on the positive side this has spurred us to constantly look at our database, question our readers and further qualify their interest in both tv-bay and the industry resulting in a dynamic database for both print and online.

Our print run is now just over 65,000 copies per year made up of 4000+ direct mailed copies to UK subscribers (people that have requested it only) each month and show copies such as BVE, NAB and IBC - plus we are the only magazine to be at the Virgin Atlantic departure gate for flights leaving for NAB (imagine being stuck on a plane for 10 hours with a copy of tv-bay!).We also proud to support UK media colleges and universities with free issue magazines for students (and lecturers), a policy which after 5 years of doing so has paid off with, for example, many Ravensbourne graduates now working and specifying equipment for their workplace and still reading tv-bay of course!

For those not able to recieve the print magazine we have probably the longest running Digital Magazine / Digital issue which you can view here - packed with interactive links and constantly being improved with features such as embedded video clips. All articles in the magazine are also added to our articles section for easy searching as we have found that electronic publications rarely appear in organic web search results.
