High School Students Use New, Free Technology to Produce Live Election Coverage — Just Like the Networks
As technology advances, it not only expands the palate of creative opportunities but also lowers the barrier of entry, allowing more people to participate. It’s a corollary to Moore’s Law, and television production is no exception. Once the bastion of big companies, specialized equipment, and large budgets, the barrier to entry has lowered enough for high schools with limited resources to operate at a level equal to that of many professional studios.

In Review: The Production Bot Switch 8
I was a bit skeptical when I saw Production Bot, the portable live broadcast studio, earlier this year at the NAB Show. I'll admit that I'm an old school Technical Director and set in my thoughts as to what a switcher was and what a switcher should be. But, I'm always looking for new and exciting gear to make live production easier. Assistant Technical Director and Production Bot guru Nick Walsh showed me the ins-and-outs of the Production Bot Switch 8 — and I must say I'm pleasantly surprised by what this little switcher can do.

For the Love of 4K: Latest Trends/New Products
Many of us “industry veterans” have marveled to see the exponential rate of speed at which our industry has grown. My partner, Mark Schulze, started our video production business “Crystal Pyramid Productions” in 1981. So together we have witnessed the advent of videotape (VHS, Beta (which met with a tragic death), ¾”, 1”, Betacam SP, D2 and DVCam). We moved from 4x3 standard definition to 16x9 HD. Then we abandoned tape and entered the digital realm of discs and cards. We held our breath during the “3D Scare,” thinking we might have to address the need for it with our clients. Fortunately, nobody seems to appreciate wearing those 3D glasses.
