Welcome ISSUE 113: MAY 2016 64 Welcome. NABShow in Las Vegas is, simply put, the world’s largest show of its kind and it really did feel like a busy event last month with previously quiet areas now bustling from the off. Magazine Office: PO Box 6090, Newbury, RG14 9BB, UK Switchboard: +44 (0)1635 237 237 Covering a show of this scale is a marathon task and can only be done with the help of many friends’ experiences and insights. We’re looking at a number of reports from such people in this issue which cover many angles from top 5 style highlights to probably the most in-depth roundup you’ll read anywhere! Editor: Simon Tillyer, Production Editor: Matt Robbins, NAB is a marathon in more ways than one with our film crew walking in excess of 26 miles over the 4 days catching up with exhibitors and challenging ourselves to get these 60+ three minute news items edited and promoted online within 24 hours of the interview. It’s not only the crew that has its work cut out, the kit we use it truly taken through its paces and to read about our experiences then take a look at the kit review on page 64. Advertising: Jonathan Highett, Louis Rushton, From all the reports you read it is pretty well accepted that there was nothing ground breakingly new launched at NAB that will transform the way we work. There was however many advances and one that you couldn’t miss were the developments in Virtual Reality and no more so than that of 360 degree cameras/ camera rigs which are now in the hands of the masses. Layout and artwork: John Fryer, After trying a few 360/VR demos it got me thinking, as we put this ‘audio’ featured issue together, just what are the challenges in capturing audio for 360degree video? From narration scenarios to making you spin around then just how do you ensure the viewer is truly immersed in virtual reality? More good friends to the rescue here with Pieter Schillibeckx answering our questions on page 50 Website: Finally we like to try new things and have just launched kitplus/students.
