Production 08 GOING FOR GOLD
A fter all the major camera manufacturers pulled out of NAB Show, it was only going to be a matter of time before news of its cancellation broke. The annual confab, which in 2019 reported an attendance of roughly 91,000, is one of the largest industry events on the calendar, and we’ll no doubt feel repercussions from another year without it. Trade shows like NAB market themselves as a museum for all the latest tech, but more than that, they are an opportunity to discuss trends with industry providers and patrons. This is why we will continue to deliver more content about how video production technology is moving forward, with features dedicated to expert opinions. Of course, at the heart of Definition are the shoot stories, and in this issue, we’ve devoted six pages to the Emmys! If there’s one positive from all this, it’s the quality of TV that’s been produced in the past two years – and we’ve got the low-down on how nominated cinematographers shot their acclaimed projects. There’s also a discussion with Adrian Wootton OBE about the UK’s booming production infrastructure, tech analyses on the current state of 8K, a perspective on editing in the cloud, and so much more in this jam-packed issue of Definition .
