by Bradford HillThe Canon XA25 Pro HD Camcorder is a compact 1/2" inch CMOS Sensor Camera with a lot of great and unexpected stand-out features. To start, its full auto & manual modes, its two XLR inputs, and an HDSDI slot packaged with the ability to shoot 1920x1080 at 59.94p are notable. While traveling on shoots, I was impressed with the capability to be able to record 1080p at 60fps within a moment’s notice. This frame rate is a new feature to the Canon line of cameras, which gives this camera a competitive edge. It is also easy to manage when set to auto mode, which comes in handy if a novice needs to use the camera on a small crew shoot, or to simply capture any ‘run-and-gun’ footage.
by Katrina Diamond4K is here - what do we do with it? ANC Sports' Chief Technology Officer Mark Stross will join Newtek's Chief Technology Officer Dr. Andrew Cross to explore how to maximize the adoption of 4K. In 2013, ANC integrated a control system to drive a video display featuring physical pixels of 1080p x 3840p at the Seattle Mariners, including dissolving content to effectively playback two HD streams at once. Meanwhile, Newtek's broadcast equipment is found in HD control rooms around the world. They will tackle the most pressing issues in both signage and broadcast control rooms such as how to successfully drive larger, higher definition displays, as well as the challenges of outputting content featuring such large file sizes. Topics such as when to scale content, delivery speed and distribution will receive an open floor discussion as the industry comes together to take greater than HD displays to the next level.
Production monitors are in a period of flux. As we transition from the familiar REC709 HD signal standard into an uncertain future, the idea that there is one “standard” monitor in the broadcasting/high-end video/digital cinema production space is no longer true, if it ever was. However, there are a few models that we like, use and consistently recommend to our customers at AbelCine.
The rise of professional field monitors and recorders (or some combination thereof) has to be one of the most interesting and welcome product developments for filmmakers in recent memory. Pushed by demand for more features and benefits, manufacturers have answered the call. This new breed of smaller yet powerful monitor/recorders takes production capabilities to a whole new level with 4K and beyond.

Wow. There I said it. Wow. The Hasselblad H6D-100c was a camera unlike any I have shot with before. Right from the beginning, I knew that this camera was going to be special. From the spectacular imaging right down to the spot on display this camera rocks. To be honest, I've wanted to own or shoot on a Hasselblad for as long as I can remember. So when I had the opportunity to get a hold of one, I could not wait.

Visual Data Media Services provides post-production services, film scanning and transcoding for a wide range of international customers, preparing content for distribution across the world’s premier broadcast channels and digital platforms. For more than two decades, the company has successfully provided everything from ingest and scanning to editing, captioning and localization, growing to become a premier resource for the entire mastering and delivery process. But last year, with a tremendous increase in 4K and ultra high definition (UHD) projects, Visual Data’s systems were struggling to keep up.
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.
