Inventiveness knows few bounds in the development of tools and techniques to improve the efficiency and quality of media production. In this session we shall explore a few of the most exciting.
Our first presentation looks at the latest innovation in bonded cellular newsgathering where the cellular system (typically 4G LTE) complements microwave or satellite feeds. This proves to be a powerful combination in which the cellular signal flexibly overcomes the inherent atmospheric limitations of the other mechanisms and even under ideal weather, the cellular technology can act to reduce latency or increase resilience. Next, a fascinating concept in scene capture which leaves open a vast creative opportunity for subsequent production – light-field acquisition. In this method, a 2D array of HD cameras captures a video sequence. The resulting data is then automatically processed to generate camera pans, tilts, virtual viewpoints or focal planes which can all be at a frozen instant in captured time.
Wireless cameras have revolutionised production and newsgathering over the last decade. They strive to achieve very low delay, high quality imagery and resilient transmission but these features all fight for valuable channel capacity. The last word increasing the size of this bottleneck is MIMO technology which introduces multiple antennas and spatial diversity. This presentation will wow you with the ultimate in wireless camera technology.
