What is HEVC [H.265], and why does your production need it?

H.264 is one of the most ubiquitous acquisition video compression standards on the market. It’s used for everything from capture on a mobile phone to delivery on most web platforms, including social networks such as YouTube and Facebook (live and on-demand). The sheer flexibility of H.264 has resulted in it being one of the most enduring standards to date. It’s still likely to be your primary delivery codec for some time to come.

Getting Started on YouTube Live

With the ever-growing popularity of web streaming and content, especially on YouTube and Twitch; the need for a high level production (or one that at least looks like it) is accelerating.  Just turning your webcam on won’t cut it anymore. You’re going to be up against a lot of competing content that looks professional. Essentially, you’re looking at a small-scale live production, where every aspect needs to be considered. So, where do you start? The majority of streamers already out there, most likely, will have started out with a webcam, routed through a CDN platform like OBS, which is free software that, as well as streaming, provides basic mixing features that allow them to create live productions. A basic enhancement is to stream direct from a professional camcorder or attach your existing camera to a Teradek VidiU Go or Datavideo streaming encoder.And, by all means, that’s where you should start too. But if your channel starts to grow and you pick up a decently sized viewer base, you may be able to start gaining revenue from your channel through video monetisation or subscriber donations. At this point, it’s definitely time to update your gear. Webcams are fine but, like TV, it’s a competitive market and subpar equipment and production value will leave you in the depths…Only to be overlooked by a bored viewer, aimlessly scrolling through YouTube.

AV meets IP meets IT with Panasonic at ISE 2020

Those with some grey hair like me might think eSports refers to a person from Yorkshire’s exercise regime, but I asked my 10-year-old and he says eSports is the fastest growing sector in the AV industry. At ISE this year Panasonic combines its latest broadcast and live entertainment products to create an eSports arena that attendees can actually participate in.  Watching other people play computer games is my idea of purgatory, but it appears I’m in a minority, and millions of 10 to 20-year olds with disposable income would rather watch eSports than Sky Sports.

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.

The Camcorder is dead. Long Live the Camcorder

How many times have you heard the phrase – the camcorder is dead?  Now video cameras are going full frame, how can there possibly be a place in the market for a fixed lens camcorder with a smaller sensor? Well, there is a place for them, and great reasons why quite often they will get you the best pictures in the widest variety of circumstances. When filming a live event or in a variety of locations the zoom lenses available with smaller sensor camcorders offer a range simply not available from a single lens on any other type of camera.

Panasonic: 4K Handheld Camcorder Promises High Quality Images And Advanced Connectivity

Panasonic has introduced a new handheld camcorder, the first in a series set to combine advanced connectivity functionality with high end image production for broadcast and streaming applications. The AG-CX350 camcorder spearheads the series, and is the first camcorder in the industry to provide NDI | HX connectivity. This ensures smooth video transmission and camera control over IP for live events and web distribution, and means the camera can be built in to larger systems working alongside Panasonic PTZ camera systems equipped with NDI|HX and the Panasonic Live Production Center (AV-HLC100).
