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 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.
Finally, if you’re trying to learn Japanese, like the 2 million foreigners who live there, but find it nearly impossible to follow the complexity of television broadcasts, you will like the novel idea of ‘easy Japanese’ broadcasting. We shall find out how Japan’s biggest broadcaster is producing news services in ‘easy Japanese’ and we shall discover: how it differs from the regular language, how they create it and what audiences thinks about it!
