IBC Review: What You Missed in Amsterdam (and What It All Means)
12 October 2010
At the International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam last month, attendees could watch video images of a fire and feel the heat and smell the smoke. They could hold a high-frame-rate 2K camera in the palm of a hand. They could enter a five-camera studio that fits in half a parking space or use advanced test & monitoring equipment that fits in half a rack unit. And, of course, there was bikini beach volleyball.
Is it possible that someone came up with a new way to shoot 3D? Were there motion-picture projectors in 1720? What are 22.2-channel headphones? Join multiple-Emmy-award-winning SMPTE Fellow Mark Schubin as he reports on IBC 2010.
