Self-proclaimed “Satellite Guy” Rob McWilliams of McWilliams Productions shares tales from producing multiple live shows at CES, including how he was able to live stream through a massive blackout!
At the 2016 NAB Show, from April 16 - 21 in Las Vegas, many companies eagerly displayed all kinds of new gadgets and technology, promising a very successful, game-changing year for the broadcast media industry. This show signaled how much technology is changing - and more so, how content consumers are planning to keep up.
Our industry is forever challenged by this one simple phrase. Be different. Create something new. Entertain me. So how do you stand out among endless other creators in a world dominated by massive budgets and endless amounts of experience? It's easy. Break all the rules.
Tons of industry professionals, reflected as a record-breaking attendance number, joined together at the Javits Center in New York City on November 9-10th for the National Association of Broadcasters fall show, NAB Show New York, to celebrate the latest in broadcasting and production technology.
Today’s reality TV productions are ambitious in their size and tight broadcast schedules, requiring a multitude of impressive engineering feats. When not tracking every move of a housewife, psychic medium or celebrity, other shows such as Hell’s Kitchen, America’s Got Talent or The Voice closely follow the progress of contestants and are broken up into segments: the documentary portions that tell the back stories of contestants, the behind-the- scenes shots that show the contestants preparing for the competition, and then the (sometimes live, sometimes not) actual competition portion itself.
While the majority of Mainstream Media's live streams are multi-camera configurations, there are numerous situations where only one camera is needed. Events such as online learning modules, press conferences, electronic news gathering, and internal corporate broadcasts can be really successful with a simple one-camera setup.
Virtual Reality has made a lot of progress working into the production cycle. The ultimate goal is to then get the show or product to the end user. Setting up for the production of a VR program, whether being live-streamed or recorded, takes on some challenges that are different than traditional production.
Ok, here is the straight out truth. I love sharing stories of people in our profession that aren’t afraid to take risks, put themselves and their assets (so to speak) on the line with our ProductionHub family. I met up with Sean and Stef Mullen of Rampant Design just a couple of years ago as they were navigating their small company into the big time of NAB. I was quickly impressed how their small company was able to rock it with the big boys and make some pretty big impressions at the show. I also got the vibe that besides being genuinely real people (a nice change) that they had bigger dreams. Don’t we all! So it was no surprise to me to hear that are chasing down the dream by opening a new studio space in Orlando, Florida.
It is not unusual over the course of the year to get quite a few different professional camera packages to try out. They range from super high end to entry pro level. But that’s ok by me because I am always looking for the right camera for the program, not overkill. That said the JVC GY-HM200SP 4K CAM was really quite a pleasant surprise. But I’m not really sure why I was surprised. I think I might know. Normally, we only get to hang on to a camera for a few weeks at most. This time however we had a chance to stretch that review period out over a longer time which was some of the local high school football season and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Yes, and the team won some of their games too! But before I get to deep into the games lets get a snapshot of the physical make up of JVC GY-HM200SP.
Since their inception, the Summer and Winter Games have endeavored to transcend linguistic and cultural differences through the universal love of sport. However, they haven’t always been the global affair that they are today. The first modern games in 1896 only included 14 nations. Today, 206 countries have official organizing committees to support the Winter and Summer Games. And, while not all nations have athletes at every game, all nations have people who tune in.
