4k - The biggest New Years resolution
Whether it is Ultra High Definition (UHD), 4K or 8K - the predictions surrounding when and if this higher resolution format will become a widespread reality are still rife in the broadcast and media industry. The consensus in the sector seems to be that we may be edging marginally closer. However, many of the barriers remain the same and there are fundamentals that still have to be addressed surrounding both content and challenges relating to delivery.

4k Streaming: a Key OTT Differentiator
OTT streaming providers are amongst the first to offer 4K UHD TV services. In fact, 4K UHD may be seen as a key differentiator for OTT services such as Netflix and M-GO as they compete with pay TV operators according to a recent report from ABI Research. Netflix has launched 4K video streaming of shows such as House of Cards and Breaking Bad. YouTube now also supports 4K playback resolutions, while 4K UHD video players are becoming available for PCs. The control and ownership of flexible software players differentiates this market's ability to roll out new technologies more quickly. OTT is evolving to include live 4K services, although the bulk of 4K content is currently only available on demand.

4k - fancy fad or future of broadcasting?
Given the increasing popularity of 4K or Ultra High Definition (UHD) televisions, as well as 4K-capable video cameras, it is safe to say that 4K/UHD is here to stay. While filmmakers in all spheres have been shooting in 4K for some time, distribution of 4K is still in its infancy with very few cinemas showing films in this format.

Stars of the show - A visitors view
Yesterday TV-BAY - Kit Plus came to East London's Brick Lane showcasing a roadshow packed with great seminars and kit to whet our appetites in advance of BVE in February. It was no great surprise that, for the DPs and camera operators at least the star of the event was the Sony PXW-FS7. Sony's latest large chip offering has been called by some the 'Canon C300 beater' and I have no doubt that as more of them come on stream and production managers and producers start to see the results they will be persuaded to move away from the trusty old C300.

Miniature cameras on the move
Using cameras in-car has always been problematic. Most importantly, the size of camera is crucial: sit a camera operator in the vehicle with a camcorder and the natural sense of intimacy is lost. Mount the camcorder within the cockpit and it is sure to obscure the driver's view of the road.

EPG: Guiding content discovery
Digital TV is something that we've become accustomed to, we don't think about how we search and select the vast volume of content that's now available to us, we just know that with the press of a button we can see what's on, record our favourite shows, series link them, select recommendations based on our previous viewing habits and pay for downloaded content that we then own.

Confidence Monitoring in the Modern Broadcast Environment
Monitoring equipment is often the last element considered in a broadcast system build, and getting its deployment just right is not always a top priority. However, most operations managers and broadcast engineers readily acknowledge the critical role that effective monitoring plays in making their jobs easier. This is especially true today, with broadcast networks growing ever more complex and relying on technologies that were not originally intended for the broadcast environment.

REVIEW: Matrox Monarch HD
Firstly, a confession; its a fair bet that,technically, I know a lot less than youthe reader although Ive worked inbroadcast television for over 30 years so Ihave a lot of hands-on experience. To balancethis out, Im a cameraman so were by nature attractedto new models, bright shiny things, whistles and bells etc.Thats not to say that I know nothing of how things work,more a case of only knowing in depth about equipment thatis relevant to my work, again its a cameraman thing.
