5G AND ESPORTS NAMED AMONG TOP DISRUPTORS

5G promises to revolutionise the way we deliver and consume content. The technology will not just ensure sufficient bandwidth to deliver higher resolutions, frame rates, VR and AR, but other advancements will improve business networking and applications for smart devices. Mobile networks already enable us to deliver live video from remote locations at a level of quality and affordability previously un-achievable. 5G will take this to a whole new level! Broadcast Bruce will be following its testing and deployment in Australia closely, looking for opportunities to leverage 5G to support creative businesses.

There is little doubt that eSports will exceed traditional' sport in terms of player participation and fan engagement. With broad global appeal and its early utilisation of the latest technologies and platforms for communication and content sharing, eSports teams and events already have viewer numbers that are the envy of any other current sport. The capture and sharing of these events presents unique challenges, but also fantastic opportunities to explore the latest technologies and workflows for live production, broadcast and streaming. Broadcast Bruce specialises in bridging traditional broadcast with the constantly evolving landscape of IT/IP technologies that deliver more efficient, flexible and future proof content production.

It is no longer expensive or complex to upgrade your network capacity and capabilities, allowing you and your team to work faster, smarter and more securely. You may not need to replace your storage devices, computers or even cables, with affordable options now available to add 10 Gigabit support to servers, workstations and laptops.

INOGENI - RECORD. STREAM. SHARE. VIDEO COLLABORATION MADE EASY.

Whether you're streaming a conference, webinar, demonstration or corporate training, todays expectations are that the production value will be a little higher than a one camera talking head or procession of slides.

This is where Inogeni can quickly and simply help you to elevate and optimise your video collaboration and webcast by enabling you to combine cameras, computer content and videos, switching and mixing them at the push of a button, and feeding into your streaming application of choice. Driver free and software agnostic, Inogeni appliances connect to your computer via USB3 and immediately all sources connected to them become accessible to your software - whether its Webex, Skype, GotoMeeting, Hangouts, Polycom, FaceTime, YouTube, vMix, Livestream and many more.

AUDINATE DANTE AVIO ADAPTORS - NETWORKED AUDIO

If you have been involved in, or investigated, video over IP technologies, you have no doubt seen or used Dante. Dante is a technology for distributing audio over networks and support is being built in to a lot of live production and professional AV tools to simplify moving lots of audio channels around. Audio cabling is bulky and expensive compared to a single network cable and Dante support means that recorders, vision mixers, computers and other devices can send and receive the potentially hundreds of audio channels in a facility over that single cable.

The problem is that you have high quality audio devices that you love, rely on and have no desire to replace, regardless of the workflow and infrastructure benefits of networked audio. Much as with video over IP, the transition to an IP networked production can feel like an upgrade all or nothing commitment. But you do not have to replace all your tools to start the process and begin to benefit from IP...

Dante AVIO Adaptors let you use your favourite legacy audio gear with any Dante-connected system, delivering the inter-operability, performance and scale-ability that only networking can bring. Cost effective, compact and built for the road, Dante AVIO adaptors bring the modern connectivity that every audio pro needs in their toolbox.

Audinate is the leading provider of professional digital audio networking technologies globally. Audinate’s Dante platform distributes digital audio signals over computer networks, and is designed to bring the benefits of IT networking to the professional AV industry. Using Dante-enabled products ensures inter-operability between audio devices and allows end users to enjoy high quality, flexible solutions - typically with a lower total cost of ownership.

More About Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

MARK WYATT TALKS ABOUT USING THE BLACKMAGIC POCKET CINEMA CAMERA 4K

“The camera tests I wanted to do were in the forests and waterfalls on the outer West Coast of Canada. I was really interested in seeing how the new sensor would handle these harsh lighting conditions. By increasing the ISO to an impressive 1250 and 2500, it allowed me to capture the dark moss-lined walls and unique emerald colour, yet also hold onto the highlight detail of the top of the waterfall and sky. I feel most cameras would likely struggle with this scene.”

JOHN BRAWLEY TALKS ABOUT THE BLACKMAGIC POCKET CINEMA CAMERA 4K FOR THE FIRST TIME

“The whole point to this daylight test was to see how the camera handled skin tones. We were shooting these scenes later in the afternoon, so I was at ISO1000 or 1250, so it was at the lower ISO for this camera. I understand this gives more in dynamic range, so you have a little bit more highlight-headroom there. When I look at those shots now, I am really impressed at how good the dynamic range is. It is great to see all of that detail I was seeing was actually captured in those shots.”

ANDREAS NEUMANN TALKS ABOUT USING THE BLACKMAGIC POCKET CINEMA CAMERA 4K

“I shot this test at Temecula in California, shooting from dawn until midday. This was a challenging environment for any camera, because I was constantly shooting into the light, or with the sun directly behind people’s faces. The detail I got was incredible. You can see everything reflecting in my wife’s Chanel glasses. You can actually see reflections off the ground, the balloon above, and the sky in the background. The camera really did capture everything I was seeing. I love shooting directly into the light wide open, and with this camera you could safely do that. I was totally amazed at what the micro four thirds sensor could handle. It seemed like the same quality as the URSA Mini Pro with the full sensor. I was also very surprised at how well the back-screen performed in bright sunlight, where I could truly see every detail.”

LTO 8 BACKUP AND ARCHIVE FOR THUNDERBOLT 3 EQUIPPED MAC'S + PC'S

MagStor are the world’s first LTO drives for Thunderbolt 3 equipped Mac and Windows computers. Certified by both Intel and Apple. While LTO has proven itself as a long term solution to archive with a strong future road map, the ports and connectivity in your computers have not had the same longevity. MagStor allows you to continue to backup and to access your historic archive using the latest computers with high speed Thunderbolt 3 interfaces.

With the latest LTO-8 drives, LTFS support and broad third party software compatibility, you can #backup up to 12TB with a simple drag and drop, or integrate MagStor with your Media Asset Management ( MAM ) or Archive tools.

RAID is not backup and hard drives fail even when sitting in the cupboard unused. With 30 years of shelf life, an LTO cartridge is the most reliable and cost effective medium for securing your precious content. What is your backup plan? How much would it cost your business if you lost the project you are working on?
