"Ask the Experts" - you come up with 6 to 10 commonly asked questions, the sort of things that come up at trades shows like IBC and then provide 150-200 word answers. This is often a double page spread of approx 1200 words. We will need images, and author name and photo.
"Product Release" - very few readers like a sales pitch and will quickly lose interest. We want to know why your product exists, what it replaced and how the industry will use it. Aim for 600 words with images based around the following structure:
- Title: don't mention your company or product, make it something generic which in the case of monitors could be "Multi-viewer or Split screen?" or something else that gets the reader's attention, what would make you stop and not turn the page?
- Para 1 (100 words): start off with a problem, again we'll use the monitor example. Why do people buy multiviewers? Why do they buy spilt screens? Reader interest is gaining as you have not yet mentioned a product - just a problem and everyone has these!
- Para 2 (175 words) : So now we can give example of what people have historically purchased or done to solve the problem in para 1
Para 3 (150 words) : Pro's and con's of each historical style when trying to solve the problem in para 1
- Para 4 (100 words) : Economies of each option
- Para 5 (300 words) : ok so now you can mention your company and what you have to solve the problem, how you go about it, what is so special about it and how it solves the problem in para 1
The word guidelines are just estimates but give a proven idea of how to structure the page if you need it.
"Case Study" - Nothing is more informative and inspiring than hearing how your peers are using new kit in their line of work. With a very diverse readership we always welcome stories and hands on adventures with broadcast equipment!
"Six of the Best"...Readers contributing products that either they dream about of just can't live without! Encourage your customers to contribute and they'll be rewarded.
"Back to Basics" - Get Back to Basics with a no jargon, no buzz words, plain English look at an industry technology or topic, how it was conceived, has progressed and stands now in the market place. The number 1 must read for those "afraid to ask"!
"Reviews" - We have a number of professionals who are able to give independent reviews of your products from tripods to software, or you may have already had some done for you, so this type of content is highly regarded by our readership.
"News" - All news must be added to the online press room where it will be approved and displayed online. The new look news in print is edited by our news analyst Will Strauss, each of the four news sections will have comment from Will alongside selected news stories.
"Everything you need to know"...Do you know everything about something? Ok maybe not everything but if you have a wealth of hands on experience on a topic then our readers will want to know all about it.

The footage will be edited to 1 or 2 (depending on how efficient and simple) videos for upload to YouTube or similar channel.

any specific requirements.

Media information and
After 6 months in development tv-bay was launched at NAB, Las Vegas, in 2004 and was an immediate hit with both private and professional sellers alike. Within a few months the numbers grew to over 200 unique IP addresses a day and now in 2013 we have over 3500 per day visiting from around the world but with the majority being in UK (25%), USA (12%) and Europe (approx. 40%). We now only promote web stats from Google Analytics as there are so many variant web analysis tools etc. which include non-human traffic (bots) which just confuse the issue when they appear in their millions.
We have made a small amount of banner advertising space available so if you are interested in these opportunities then please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also take advantage of "service banners" which are keyword specific and appear against all adverts matching your chosen word or phrase.
The tv-bay magazine (rebranded KITPLUS, September 2014) was launched in June 2006 and is printed monthly. Initially, as we built our database, the publication was sent to over 7000 UK subscribers who had shown interest at the many trade shows we attend (we are normally hard to miss!) and via tv-bay online. We, and our readers, love print - its tangible, hangs around in offices for ages, has countless 2nd/ 3rd/ 4th hand readers and, when part of an online portfolio, is the perfect reference point. The down side of print though is the ever rising UK postage but on the positive side this has spurred us to constantly look at our database, question our readers and further qualify their interest in both tv-bay and the industry resulting in a dynamic database for both print and online.
Our print run is now just over 65,000 copies per year made up of 4000+ direct mailed copies to UK subscribers (people that have requested it only) each month and show copies such as BVE, NAB and IBC - plus we are the only magazine to be at the Virgin Atlantic departure gate for flights leaving for NAB (imagine being stuck on a plane for 10 hours with a copy of tv-bay!).We also proud to support UK media colleges and universities with free issue magazines for students (and lecturers), a policy which after 5 years of doing so has paid off with, for example, many Ravensbourne graduates now working and specifying equipment for their workplace and still reading tv-bay of course!
For those not able to recieve the print magazine we have probably the longest running Digital Magazine / Digital issue which you can view here - packed with interactive links and constantly being improved with features such as embedded video clips. All articles in the magazine are also added to our articles section for easy searching as we have found that electronic publications rarely appear in organic web search results.
