ABC Stargazing Live
If you missed it, Stargazing Live was on TV this month and as Professor Brian Cox tweeted, the ABC did a magnificent job! Great to see our ABC generating such quality content and using technology to connect people live and share some beautiful imagery. Watch it on iView and check out their 'Our Focus' page for interesting articles, links and some fun, interactive apps and guides.

Thunderbolt eGPU Solutions officially supported on Mac!

The latest OSX includes official support for upgrading your processing power with an eGPU over Thunderbolt 3 solution. There are some caveats - no NVidia support. No FCP support. No Bootcamp support - but the ground work is done and there is little doubt that in the short term we will see rapid development and improved eGPU support on Apple hardware.

Technical Services & Consultation...

TriCaster Studios Built By Broadcast Bruce
Tell your story free from technical and operational frustration
Broadcast Bruce is able to provide fast response technical support services for creative professionals and businesses in and around Melbourne, Victoria. If something is frustrating you and you wouldn't mind a second opinion on sorting it out, I urge you to call and have a chat. Often,  the issue can be resolved quickly and easily over the phone and I am happy to offer recommendations that you can act on yourself. Only if necessary will I then escalate to an onsite visit and only if I am confident the problem can be resolved.

Perhaps you don't have in house technical people? Maybe your head office and tech staff are located in another city and can't be deployed quickly and easily? Perhaps you need additional engineering support for a large project or maybe just a pair of fresh eyes? Call. Have a chat. It can't hurt and maybe Broadcast Bruce can help.

BirdDog Studio NDI
BirdDog Studio NDI
BirdDog Studio NDI allows your existing cameras and other video devices to be included in a new IP workflow for your live productions. Once you convert your HDMI or SDI signal to IP the speed and flexibility of your live production workflows can improve considerably. Any device on every network connection has the potential to become a live video input into your switcher. Connect gaming systems, presentation tools, cameras, broadcast and consumer video sources to your standard network and move them around cleanly and reliably using NDI video over IP technology and BirdDog.

The transition to an IP-based workflow does not have to involve complex and expensive equipment. It also does not demand the replacement of your existing tools. Speak to Broadcast Bruce if you are interested in understanding a little more about how technologies like this, and others, can simplify any live production.
