Workflows, equipment, and technology breakthroughs. Discover who is using 4K/8K and why. Understand the theory and practical significance of providing more pixels, higher frame rates, and bigger and better color space.
The movement behind 8K has gained momentum and met growing resistance at the same time as it attempts to break out from its Japanese roots after being nurtured for over a decade almost single handedly by NHK.
ChyronHego rocked the NAB Show 2019 with a whole new approach to Virtual Sets, and a revolutionary use of a telestrator not just as a second screen, but as a second primary sports entertainment channel.
The Ross Video exhibit at the NAB Show 2019 was packed with visitors because they had so many product lines introducing so many new products.
From an 8K switcher to a new 4.6K camera, you could hardly get through the packed Blackmagic Design exhibit to see its most talked about excitement, the new DaVinci Resolve 16.
Blackmagic made several significant product announcements that set the stage for future industry technological advances in 8K.
As the myriad of live competition television shows continue to attract new and ever larger audiences for TV networks, producing them live has become so complicated that a second technical director (TD), often called a “screens TD,” is now often being employed in concert with the lighting department’s graphics server operator and create the look of the LED video tile-intensive sets. Most stages feature literally millions of LED pixels and lighting rig configurations that adorn the brilliantly lit sets so it takes a “screens team” along with the LED tech responsible to manage the actual LED tiles.
It seems everyone, at least in this business, wants to be part of high-visibility production or broadcast. Well, such events do not get much bigger than the annual Super Bowl broadcast or NASCAR productions.
Anyone with a story worth telling should only be limited by their creativity, not their technical prowess.
