Once again commanding some of the industry’s most influential photographers and filmmakers, the UK’s largest photography and moving image co-located event is also set to welcome Susan Meiselas, Gavin Free, Ross Halfin, Juno Calypso and Brooke Shaden.

Following Chase’s talk on Saturday 14 March is renowned documentary photographer, Susan Meiselas. As a member of the prestigious Magnum Photos since 1976, Susan is best known for her coverage of the insurrection in Nicaragua and her documentation of human rights issues in Latin America. Looking back over four decades as an award-winning documentary photographer, she will share fascinating insights into her most recent projects, her approach and life through photography.

On Sunday 15 March, award-winning cinematographer and the co-creator of The Slow Mo Guys, Gavin Free, will present two sessions at the Super Stage. The popular duo have amassed over 13 million subscribers on YouTube, achieving fame with everything from viral videos of bursting balloons to in-depth explanations of how a high-end slow-motion camera works. In a rare European appearance, Gavin Free will let visitors into his life as an incredibly successful YouTuber, the career steps that he took to get there, and his passion for his subject matter. He will discuss what goes into making and distributing this kind of content, the tech involved, how he keeps the ideas coming, and what it's like to have online video as your career.

Raising the bar on movement quality and shot framing control, the recently launched Shotoku SX200 and SX260 pan and tilt heads incorporate a brand-new design featuring Shotoku’s “Truebalance” for perfect counterbalance that is also easy to adjust throughout the range and has an intuitive display to indicate the current setting. The drag system uses Shotoku’s well known Viscam design but adds a new actuation system that combines the convenience and speed of selection of a stepped system, with the fine tuning and on-shot adjustment of a continuously variable design. The SX200 has a max payload of 44Lbs (20Kg) and the SX260 55Lbs (25Kg). The systems come standard with 2 stage ENG Carbon Fibre legs and is one of the lightest on the market at these payloads.

NEW for NAB 2020 - With these SX200/SX260 heads crossing over to the EFP application, the new TTH1002C 100mm carbon fibre EFP tripod has been added to provide an extremely rigid solution, useful when using longer lenses for sports and documentary production.

SmartPed Fully Robotic Pedestal – Absolutely Brilliant Navigation

SmartPed with Absolute Navigation is perfect for those applications where referencing the fully robotic pedestal is inconvenient or the design of the studio leaves no scope for a floor tile reference position. SmartPed now comes with two optional additions depending on the environment – AN-I is an IP interface within SmartPed enabling it to interface to existing external optical tracking systems such as Mosys StarTracker or Stype RedSpy using the absolute tracking information to reference and adjust the pedestals own internal navigation systems. AN-S provides a full integrated solution, including the optical tracking system for situations where customers do not already have installed optical tracking.
