48 TVBEurope BVE London Britain’s biggest show


Our February issue is all about the cloud and IP, but the industry won’t be going entirely ‘virtual’ for a long time to come. Tradeshows, where industry professionals can meet one on one and show off products and services in the flesh, are as big as ever. The Broadcast Video Expo is the second largest TV tradeshow in Europe (after IBC). In the following pages, we showcase just a few of the products which will be making an appearance at this month’s event, on 25 – 27 February at the ExCel, London. BVE’s seminar schedule has expanded and


improved year on year. It will be distributed across eight theatres – Broadcast IT, Production, Producing, Post Production, Cinematography and Lighting, Skills, the


Connected Theatre and the 4K Theatre. The session themes run from commissioning and financing, to the latest sound technologies and post production workflows, to second screen and cross- platform delivery. The TVBEuropeteam will be on the BVE floor all day, every day. We look forward to meeting old friends and making new ones. — Neal Romanek
