The Broadcast Bridge Publishes Almost 100 Articles Each Month

The Broadcast Bridge publishes about 100 articles every month. Given that high number, you could be expected to have missed one or more of them. Here are two recent articles that our data says readers found highly interesting.

The lure of enhanced UHD and HDR pictures over what we now know as traditional definition HD is enticing to all digital content creators. Even so it puts broadcasters on the horns of a dilemma: how can they capitalize on (i.e. make a buck from) the new technologies in the face of alternative delivery technologies before the rapidly evolving desires of a fickle public literally put them out of business?

The Broadcast Bridge writer-editor, Jay Ankeney, visits with Thomas Bause Mason, SMPTE director of standards about his presentation, “The State of UHD and HDR: Five Things Everyone Should Know.”

A few years ago, remote Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ) cameras were regarded as being low quality and not suitable for professional use. Thanks to the advances in sensor, IP technology, the introduction of fanless designs and optical image stabilizers, the balance has been tipped in favour of remote cameras as an industry standard.

Sales of professional PTZ cameras are to grow by 37% over the next three years says Futuresource Consulting. As budgets tighten, and more broadcasters are looking for an all-in-one option, PTZs deliver on the need for high quality visuals and integrate extremely well into automated environments where shots and looks can be reproduced daily.

The Broadcast Bridge editor-writer, Adrian Pennington, examines the underlying technology and features provided by multiple manufacturers of this technology in the article, “The Rise of the PTZ Camera.”
