The DSLR HD Video Revolution Posted: 26/01/2010
The DSLR HD Video Revolution This year's BVE exhibition brings the visitor face-to-face with DSLRs technology for the first time, as well as a treasure trove of and new accessories. The show is also delighted to announce free education on getting top results from the leading DSLR cameras.
 
Two years ago it was assumed that DSLR cameras would eventually capture HD video. So when camera manufacturers launched the first generation with moving image capture, it was no big surprise. The target audience the marketing spoke of was the paparazzi. This seemed to make complete sense. One year on and this laissez-faire attitude to DSLR video has been stopped dead in its tracks. The DSLR has arrived in the production community with a bang and made an impact that it could never have dreamt of with prize-winning DOPs and cinematographers shooting beautiful films on DSLRs.

Afghanistan upgrades.. Tolo TV, the award-winning Afghan commercial television network, has upgraded its Broadcast Traffic Systems (BTS) traffic management installation. New software and additional modules have been added to the system installed during 2006 at Tolo's headquarters in Kabul.

"We selected BTS traffic management software at IBC2006 after comparing the various available interstitial-management applications," comments Tolo TV CEO Jahid Mohseni. "We were impressed by the look and feel of the browser-based user interface though which Enterprise is controlled. Other key factors in our choice were the option of remote implementation, online training and post-installation support. These allowed our staff to experience working with the system before making it a primary part of our day-to-day workflow. It integrated seamlessly with our existing equipment, forming a system that is highly reliable and easy to use."

Vinten supports the X Factor Posted: 23/12/2009
Vinten supports the X Factor Capturing all the performances on ITV's The X Factor – shot in London's Fountain Studios - called for fast and fluid movement from the cameras. One of the ways to achieve that freedom was with the use of Vinten Quattro-S pedestals with Vision 250 heads, supplied by The Camera Store.
 
The Quattro-S pedestal retains all the advantages of the Vinten Quattro – perfect balance over the whole of its one metre height adjustment, with smooth and silent on-shot moves – but with a smaller footprint. Under the pressure of a fast-moving live show like The X Factor this means that more cameras could get close to the action in the confined area at the front of the stage.
 
"The whole show was all about creating high excitement, which means lots of unusual camera angles and plenty of movement," said Simon Tyres, camera supervisor on the production. "The Vinten Quattro S allowed me to move wherever the director calls, and never restricts my movements. It is the perfect pedestal for live light entertainment."
 
The X Factor is produced by Syco Productions and Talkback Thames.
