Our industry has long since been scattered with buzz words and acronyms.
We were all streamlining our processes in the late 90’s, producing scalable
kit towards the millennium with solutions sold by one-stop-shops. Our
workflows have been improving over the last decade with virtualisation playing its part
without going OTT! With our new world of multi-platform delivery (another one) there may
just be two words on the horizon to sum it all up…

Media dispersion is a good fit describing the myriad of methods to receive and view
content and what a great buzz word to cover WiFi, 3G, satellite and cable feeding content
to mobile, tablet and tv platforms. Just what however has this got to do with our annual
test and measurement featured issue?
Advertising Jonathan Highett,
firstname.lastname@example.org Test and measurement gear gets it right from the start. If the very origin of content is
done well then the options for its dispersion across a vast multitude of platforms around
the planet becomes possible with second and third generation versions suffering little
degradation. We asked Steve from Hamlet to polish off his crystal ball and give us an
insight as to how he sees this important, but often overlooked, part of the industry in the
future. Take a look at page 66.

Industry magazines are often accused of giving little space for audio preferring to focus
on amazing images and cool cameras. We’d like to think tv-bay gives the subject a fair
shout and this issue is no different questioning what you do if you can’t hear digital audio?
Digital Audio is a very broad and sophisticated subject and we’ve focused on the specific
challenges around Dolby® E, Dolby® Digital and Dolby® Digital Plus.
Take a look on page 56.
Last month’s live show came direct from Panasonics new Solutions Centre in Bracknell,
UK. You can catch up with the show, a tour of the new facility, plus get some sound advice
on audio for DSLR’s and a run-down of the latest microphone
solutions on the BroadcastShow YouTube channel (search
tvbaybroadcastshow). Watch out for the new website launching
at the end of July packed with interviews, reviews and news!
