Broadcast has teamed up with Visual Impact and Root 6 for a nationwide series of technology roadshows.
The Look, Listen, Experience roadshow will tour the country in March, visiting venues in London, Bristol, Cardiff, Salford and Glasgow.
The event will cover a wide range of production and post technology, with the emphasis on visitors getting hands-on with kit.
Broadcast will host several seminars and panel sessions involving the regions’ leading production and post firms.
“If you are interested in seeing the latest cameras and post technologies, and hearing from industry leaders, you need to attend this roadshow,” said Broadcast conference director Charlotte Wheeler.
Visual Impact hosted its own roadshow in 2012, which was attended by 1,000 people, and will build several sets showcasing cameras in different production environments, along with dedicated audio and lighting areas.
“Partnering with these two industry heavyweights made perfect sense,” said Visual Impact group business manager Rob Newton.
“Both are leaders in their respective fields and they will bring a wider and more comprehensive coverage of the industry for the visitors.”
Root 6 will demonstrate the latest post-production software and technology, with leading vendors including Avid, Adobe, Front Porch Digital and Amulet showcasing cloud-based production technology.
Using real-world workflow examples, an accompanying seminar programme will examine use of the cloud for editing and logging, storage and archive, QC and delivery, and remote operations.
“We are delighted to be joining with Visual Impact and Broadcast,” said Root 6 director John Harris.
“Visitors will experience all-encompassing workflows from camera to multiplatform delivery.”
