Keeping Your Post Prodction on Track with Subclips and Se...

For my 2nd Kit Plus article I thought I’d try and build on the theme of my first, and that’s one of making sure things are organised at all levels of your post production projects. Last time I talked about trying as best as you can to stick to the ‘two week rule’, making sure that the names & locations of every asset you import, and every bin & seq...

Trade shows and their role in the wired world

Historically trade shows afforded an opportunity to collect the latest brochures relevant to the visitor's chosen industry or career path. Today there seems little reason to store data of any kind, let alone paper brochures, when information is so easily accessible online. Brochure back-packing at exhibitions has become a rare sight, rarer still si...

Raising the bar at BVE

Azule's Peter Savage managed to drag himself away from his countless BVE meetings (and the show bar) for long enough to discover that ˜easy-to-use' was the tipple of choice at this year's show. Trade shows are funny things. When you arrange a lot of meetings, it is quite easy to spend an entire week at an exhibition and not see any kit or attend an...

Final furlong of exhibition season with Peter Savage

Well, here we are again, approaching the final furlong of exhibition season – having back-to-backed BVE and CABSAT, and now planning NAB – and, yes, my liver feels as though it is approaching the final fence at the Grand National. I suspect my wife feels entitled to file for divorce on the grounds of me seemingly having disappeared like Lord Lucan,...

Crowd pulling at BVE

There is no better crowd puller at a trade show than a stand using equipment from multiple manufacturers being used in way it will be once unpacked by the customer. This ethos is really the idea behind our monthly live studio show and was also the theme for our stand at this year’s BVE. Pooling stands with Autocue was the first good move as it not...

Bob Pank starts counting cores...

Once again BVE hosted its one-day Cloud seminar. The new ExCel location meant that the room was away from the show floor and ideal for concentrating on the words flowing from the experts. Full-on attention was needed as squeezing in nine sessions between 10.00 and 17.45 meant that each would be short, sharp and to the point, which was certainly the...

Business travel

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. And obviously it has its perks, including visiting places with slightly warmer climates than the freezing UK. But the bigge...

My first BVE

The problem with Premier Inns, is that they can be quite disorientating. All the rooms are decorated the same, whichever hotel you're in, be it England or Scotland. It is especially confusing just after your alarm goes off, as you're not quite with it and I often struggle to remember where I am, and what I'm supposed to be doing. To some extent I t...

BVE in the video on-demand era

Within the last ten years, on-demand culture has changed the way that the world accesses media. From Prime Ministers Questions on Wednesday afternoons to Champions League highlights on a Tuesday evening, there is no longer any excuse to miss anything that we would otherwise tune into live. The same now goes for exhibitions, as not only is it hard e...
