"We found, for example, that Netflix’s US catalogue contains more Australian content than the Australian Netflix catalogue does (both in the number of titles and the overall proportion of the library)."

While the short article opens with: "Local film and TV content makes up just 1.6% of Netflix’s Australian catalogue", it quickly goes on to qualify the statement and discuss some interesting considerations about the role Netflix, and other pay TV platforms like Stan, play in Australian content production. Worth a few minutes to read.

Ever been to a meeting, lecture or live event and been frustrated with getting content from your laptop or phone displayed on the screen or projector?

It is surprising how many spaces make it difficult to do something that sounds so simple. Many have either old style connectors with adaptors that always go missing, or new 'smart' systems that need dedicated apps or drivers to get them to work properly.

Often in meetings and at events, multiple people need to be able to display their content at the same time and everything becomes disjointed and messy as cables are switched, or files are copied between computers to the one that is connected, which is then passed around as each presenter takes a turn...

Sound familiar?

Professional Video Solutions for Schools & Students

I am passionate about education. Training and skill development are a primary focus for Broadcast Bruce and I am always on the look out for opportunities to leverage technology to not just improve the effectiveness and power of an education platform, but to increase its reach and accessibility, enabling the delivery of knowledge to places and people previously denied it. Broadcast Bruce has a long history of delivering professional video production solutions to schools, as well as supporting students with access to the tools and skills they need to ultimately join the creative industries.

A number of the products and services offered by Broadcast Bruce may qualify for additional pricing support from the manufacturer if you are a student or educational institution. While the requirements and discounts vary, the expectation is generally that the school is recognised as such by the relevant state or federal authority, or that the student has an ID confirming enrolment in a relevant course, such as Film Studies, Media or Communications.
