Production Suite at BroadcastShow
N/A We have been developing the Autocue Production Suite, which is designed to replace traditional, individual broadcast devices with a single, integrated system. When combined with our newsroom, prompting and production applications, it offers a cost-effective end-to-end workflow solution. Weve been working with BroadcastShow over the last few months to trial the system in a live studio environment and to test and deploy new functionality ahead its full launch at IBC2012.

Business travel
N/A Talking to people in the broadcast industry, it is clear that travelling to shows, exhibitions or to visiting customers and suppliers is still part and parcel of the trade we are in. As the saying goes, people buy from people.

An Epic Journey for the Summer Games
N/A With the abundance of international sporting events taking place this summer, broadcast technologies and logistics are being put to the test across the board. Beyond the typical coordination and on site expertise required for broadcasts, many companies face not only longer engagements but aggressive turnaround times and long travel distances between each event. This summer, Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group's Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, gave us an inside look at the journey of its gear as the company successfully outfitted major broadcasters with equipment and engineering support during the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship, Olympic Games and US Opentotaling more than 12,000 miles in about three months.

Keeping a router cool is hot
N/A To mangle a metaphor: The more things stay the same, the more they need to change. A significant percentage of the global installed base of broadcast routers has stayed, more or less, the same many for more than a decade.

Issues facing broadcasters of outdoor sporting events
N/A One of the major issues facing Broadcasters using temporary structures for major sporting events is keeping the studios cool and quiet enough for presenters to work comfortably and effectively under the host of lights. Keeping cool often involved the use of air conditioning which historically would be turned off when filming. However this need not be the case.

Watch out for dead pixels
N/A A dead pixel in a camera imaging sensor can manifest itself in a number of ways. Implying black, 'dead' is not necessarily the correct term for a pixel failure. This is because imager defects include hot pixels, sparkles, noisy or lazy pixels. These problems usually arise during the chip manufacturing process.

Summer of 3D
Bob Pank# Having put 3D to one side for a few months it was very interesting to jump back into the third dimension. With 3D not making the headlines much, if at all, you might be lulled into thinking it has faded away, but thats not the case. Many events are being shot in 3D, including the Olympics and, although there has been nothing happening that could be called a revolution, there is a great deal of evolution going on.

Ask the Experts - IT and Broadcast converge
N/A Convergence, specifically the convergence of IT and broadcast technology, appears to be one of those themes that endures. Why does the subject still garner so much attention in 2012? It must be 15-years since the term was first used in this context, are we not a fully converged industry?

Who wouldnt consider a career in Live sports?
N/A There are many diverse things in this industry which give me a buzz but I think that live sports coverage is probably pretty near the top of the pile. With a 17yr old son considering his career options I thought it time to introduce him to the world of live sports and SIS LIVE were kind enough to give us a quick tour behind the scenes on the second Monday of this years Wimbledon.
