Swit Electronics is a high-tech enterprise that manufacture power solutions and accessories for the professional broadcast and video industry. Products include batteries and chargers, on-camera lights, monitors and more. Swit design and manufacture their products to the smallest detail and therefore the end result is a high performing, high quality product that can be relied upon by the professional user.
Travel Safe Power Solutions
The latest innovations from Swit are designed to solve the problem of travelling with Lithium Ion batteries. When you are shooting abroad, often to areas of unreliable DC power source, it is essential to have enough power to complete your shoot without any costly time delays. IATA Flight regulations restrict the size of battery that you can travel with to under 100Wh. Well, what if you need more?
The newly designed S-8132S (126Wh) and S-8192S (184Wh) batteries are splittable into two sections that individually comply with the regulations. You simply detach the two halves before travelling and then re-attach when you arrive, and you now have high capacity V-Lock or Gold Mount batteries to use abroad. It is worth noting that there is a chip in the batteries that link the halves to each other, so you cannot mix and match the individual halves.
DV Batteries
Swit also manufacture a reliable, tried and tested alternative to manufacturer own brand batteries. With an already comprehensive range of solutions for cameras from Sony, Canon, JVC and Panasonic, there are two new additions to the line up.
The S-8U63 is a fully compatible alternative for the Sony PMW-EX range. The battery features a Pole Jack and DC output terminal for powering and charging accessories, and gives full battery life information on the LCD of the camera.
The S-8I50 works with the very popular JVC GY-HM600 and GY-HM650 camcorders. There is also a Pole Jack and USB output on this battery, and a dual channel charger the S-3602I.
The new batteries are shipping now and are available through any authorised Swit reseller, or www.swit.co.uk.

The University of the Third Age
Bernard Newnham Here's a cliché - "We all get to be old one day - if we're lucky". There comes a point when things like "....mastered in Dolby Vision Domestic and SDR Rec 709....." become just a touch unimportant (and actually I never really understood that stuff in the first place). I retired for the third time last year - BBC producer, and before that cameraman, then freelance producer, trainer, do-your-own camera, sound, editor, blah blah, then 11 years university teaching. I did my bit - never a BAFTA, but certainly the first into a good few things - but it all has to come to an end sometime.

To Remotely Go - TVFutures
Michael Parsons One of my biggest concerns as an academic responsible for the education of hundreds of students is the ‘appropriateness’ of much of the technology we purchase and implement within the curriculum. The last few years have seen tremendous change in all sorts of technologies, and the broadcast industry is just one sector that has seen some significant leaps in innovation.

Keeping the Show on the Road
Andy McKenzie There is long-established saying in the media business that, if something goes wrong, at least nobody dies. It is almost true unless you happen to be a TV producer suffering a cardiac arrest because your primary video feed has gone blank during a high-budget programme.

IP Technology for Broadcast Audio Routing Systems
Tom Knowles As the AoIP debate continues to confuse and delight in equal measure, what is clear is different scenarios require specific solutions. So is there a solution that encompasses open standards and existing proven AoIP technologies to the benefit of all?

The Future of Broadcast Connectivity
Jamie Adkin The use of KVM equipment has been essential to meet the evolving needs of the broadcast industry for many years. Over that time, many in the industry have recognised the importance of using IP-enabled KVM to break down technological barriers and enable real-time access to visuals wherever and whenever they’re needed. These components are vital parts in live production environments in particular.
