Students from Solent University were offered a unique experience this year. They were invited to apply for work experience with UK systems integrator, Megahertz, as the company raced to complete a UHD/4K re-build of the media suites at the world-famous Royal Opera House (ROH) in London during the Summer season break.
According to IABM data, UHD adoption has grown slowly in recent years, from the 14% reported at NAB Show 2018 to the 20% reported at NAB 2019. Deployments have risen although there is still a high percentage of companies unlikely to launch any UHD offerings.
IABM has recently released its Buying Trends Report, a biannual study tracking financial performance and trends in the media sector. This report draws on financial and survey evidence gathered by IABM as well as secondary sources to provide members a comprehensive account of demand-side trends and performance.
In each coming issue of the IABM Journal, we will be working our way through the nine blocks of the BaM Content Chain®, looking at what the current state of the art is in each block, what the challenges and opportunities are, and what’s coming next. In this edition, we have spoken with 10 IABM members with products in the Create block – which covers a wide range from cameras, lights and mounts to graphics, production systems and virtual sets – anything that’s employed in the creative process.

Ahead of NAB Show 2019, we asked members of our Americas Members’ Council to lift the lid on what they see will be the key trends at the show this year. Judging by the spread of their responses, show visitors are going to be very busy keeping up with all the action in our very fast-moving industry. What is clear though is that it is increasingly about technology being harnessed to drive new business models as opposed to the old tech-first approach.
