The social geek
N/A Today I want to consider this Venn diagram. It has been widely circulated on the internet: it appears to have been created by the Californian producer and publisher Scott Beale in 2009. It is a laudable attempt to differentiate between nerds, geeks, dweebs and dorks.

Autocue Production Suite at BroadcastShow
N/A The Autocue Production Suite (APS) is a single, integrated system designed to replace traditional, individual broadcast devices. 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.

Protecting the archive
N/A Over the last 20 years or so we have all become accustomed to the expression asset management and, as ever, familiarity has bred contempt. In this case, the expression has become a loose descriptor for almost anything with a bit of a database in it. We need to stop and think about what we are trying to achieve.

Why a new range of cases?
N/A Surprisingly we discovered that some bags and cases - even very popular and well established models - lacked basic features required for Northern Europe, such as wet weather protection. These may be fine in drier climates but for wet Novembers in Ireland or damp spring mornings in Wales, these bags were, in our view, putting equipment at risk.

Zoom lenses and minicams
N/A Finding a quality tracking zoom lens for the minicams made for the likes of Toshiba/Iconix/Hitachi/Sony has been an uphill battle. The cameras have been made primarily for the medical imaging market for microscopes and endoscopes but adopted by the broadcast industry as a high end minicam. However lenses were always a problem. Fujinon made the TF range of 1/3 prism corrected lenses for this market but no zoom lens. A zoom lens project, and specifically now with HD, is just not big enough for the big players such as Fujinon and Canon but now there is something in the market.

Understanding and Managing the Piracy Continuum
N/A Content owners, content distributors and security vendors have traditionally characterized digital pirates as a single malicious group with ill intentions. This, however, is seriously short-sighted because it is an overgeneralization that not only overshadows true consumer behavior, but results in misguided piracy mitigation tactics and missed revenue opportunities.

The semantic web made simple
N/A There is a new term creeping in to discussions in the broadcasting business, and particularly around those involved in asset management and research projects. The term is semantic web and, I suspect, there are a lot of people who are neither completely sure they know what it means, nor trust its relevance in our business. I aim to provide some simple answers to those questions.

Ubiquitous Cloud at IBC
Bob Pank# It was one of those IBCs that was more consolidation than innovation. There wasnt any one product or technology that stood out as a game changer. There was more evidence of 4K being pushed as a more realistic alternative to 8K and more of the must-have 84-inch 4K TV screens.

Wibbly Wobbly Waveforms
N/A The very first analytical electronic instrument, developed in the late 1890s, was the oscilloscope. This used a cathode ray tube (CRT) to paint a graph of voltage on the Y axis versus time on the X axis. Once television became a practical reality in the 1930s, the same instrument was applied to the video output from the camera and became the very useful waveform monitor.

Review of Kinoflo Celeb 200
N/A Good quality lighting is at the heart of all great photography, when we use the sun we are at the mercy of the weather and need to take into consideration all the variables from time of day to position of sun to name a few, importantly however we can trust the source to provide a complete spectrum. However when we are shooting with tungsten or with any artificial source we need to be very aware of the properties of these sources (and how closely they match a blackbody radiator) if we want to produce colours faithfully on camera and control colour temperature if we are to be the masters of our craft.
