A Look Into the 2019 Technology Crystal Ball

As a part of The Broadcast Bridge multi-part series on 2019 production and broadcast technology, we continue with an examination of production applications.

In this first of three parts focused on post production technology, writer Jay Ankeney visits with multiple thought leaders in that workspace. Learn what these experts see coming in the New Year.

Part two in this week’s highlight offers a detailed look at fiber optic connectors. You use them right? But did you know there are some 100 different types of FO connectors available? How should one select the best one for an application? Good advice is just ahead.

As we enter a new year, it's often useful to ask fellow industry leaders and experts what they see as key upcoming technological challenges and solutions. What new workflow improvements lay just ahead?

The Broadcast Bridge invited several thought leaders from a variety of production solution manufacturers to share their insights on key topics and even offer some 2019 predictions.  Learn from these experts here.

An optical fiber connector terminates the end of an optical fiber cable. Its purpose is to allow quick connection and disconnection of fiber cables.

Simple enough concept. The problem is there are about 100 different types of fiber connectors available. How can an engineer select a best-fit for any application? The article, “Knowing Fiber Optic Connectors,” provides example applications, suggestions along with additional resources to access more information. 

Don’t Try the Move to IP Without Help

Let consultant and The Broadcast Bridge technology editor, Tony Orme, help. Orme’s book, Broadcast for IT, is a 20-chapter treatise on IT systems, video and audio technology. He offers practical guidance in making the technologies play nice with each other.
