TV and OTT Battle for the High Ground at 20th Annual Real Screen Summit

Industry Announcements / Events Friday, February 23, 2018
I recently attended the 20th annual Real Screen Summit in Washington D.C. This mid-winter convocation has become the pre-eminent gathering of buyers, distributors and producers of reality TV, documentaries and other non-fiction programming in the Americas. Consequently, it also attracts hundreds of producers working in these genres eager to distribute finished or nearly finished programs, and to pre-sell projects in varying stages of development.

DJI Announces Game Changer 35mm Sensor Camera and New Lens Group Integrated into Inspire Drone

Industry Announcements / Events Thursday, October 19, 2017
Like we said in our last ProductionHUB newsletter, the new product announcements just keep on coming. In the intimate (and way too cool) setting of the Neuhous Theater and under a gorgeous Los Angles twilight, DJI unleashed maybe — just maybe — one of the most captivating and interesting new products in recent memory. The Zenmuse X7 with a 35mm sensor and a full set of new carbon fiber lens designed specifically to work with the 35mm sensor. Gotta tell you straight up - they knocked it out of the park. Long known for excellence in the drone world, DJI seems keen on not only keeping up but also surpassing the norm. What was on display wasn’t just new product but some new ways of approaching the production and post-production workflow.

Cameras, Cameras Everywhere!

Industry Announcements / Events Monday, October 09, 2017
So with another IBC in the rearview mirror and NAB NY along with AES just a few days away, you would think we could catch our collective breath. Not going to happen. With more new cameras, new sensors and new gear announcements than I can remember (outside of NAB) there is just a ton of cool stuff going on in our business. Which makes for very good news for us here at ProductionHUB. The problem is where to start? Simple. I am just going to dive right in with both feet. Not in any particular order either but here goes.

IBC 2017: The “Must See” List

Industry Announcements / Events Friday, September 15, 2017
There are a lot of IBC preview lists (including our own) but I wanted to wait until the last minute so I could get you some of the latest info about IBC. So now, with IBC here, it is a perfect time to check out some of the latest gear that will be on display in the exhibition halls in Amsterdam. It is true that almost nothing beats actually getting on the floor to get some hands on time with the new stuff. But sometimes you just can’t get there. We get it. So if you can’t be there, don’t worry, ProductionHUB has you covered. But don’t think we are going to stop there. We plan to continue on extensive coverage during, and after IBC too. Make sure you are checking out the latest show updates on Let’s Go!

2017 NAB in Review: A Changing of the Guard? (Part One)

Industry Announcements / Events Wednesday, May 17, 2017
Is this not a great business to be in? Hard to believe not to long ago that the 2017 NAB was wrapping up. Officially, the National Association of Broadcasters tabbed the attendance at 103,443. Which after twenty something NAB shows sounds and feels about right. But before we get into some of the cool new products we looked at, some perspective and analysis is definitely in order.

NAB 2017 Awards of Excellence Winners Take Center Stage

Industry Announcements / Events Monday, May 08, 2017
So before we get to our illustrious winners, I think providing a little background is in order. When the ProductionHUB team set out to chose our Award of Excellence Winners it seemed like such a simple task. Slam dunk, 1, 2 3. Hour to pick the winners tops right? That would be such a resounding NO. Everyone (including me) in that room fought tooth and nail to do one thing. That one thing was to get it right. So after a lot of arguing, persuading, and flat out shouting at each other we had our list. Wasn’t easy or very pretty but when the dust settled there it was. There was so many solid products out there, and I won’t lie we all had our own favorites. But that didn’t matter. So,some four arduous hours later we were done. Best of the best. Let’s go!
