The Broadcast tour arrived in Glasgow on Tuesday and it was very good indeed, I was there early doors but from all accounts it was well attended.


JVC were showing the new GY-HN70 along with the GY HM650.


Ianiro were sporting a new range of Libec RSPlus video heads along with a new set of Oyster kit bags…made in the UK, two other bits on info Nick was telling me that Ianiro will be bringing back the Red head this year armed with a bank of LEDs, put my name down for one of these and the green screen seen in the picture can be made to measure…fantastic.



As usual the 2.5K Black Magic Design camera was very popular and a wee bit top heavy with this Zeiss prime lens.

Holdan who distribute Black Magic Design in the UK were on hand to demonstrate their vast range of products from the latest Panasonic camcorders to the Black Magic Cinema camera.


My good friend Rick Young was holding a seminar about filming on location demonstrating his essential camera gear from tripods to camera bags.



There was a six camera vision truck on hand, very compact and just the business for conferences and theatre work along side the Canon 75x HD lens as seen below.



Lightworks were showing an editing package that will cost you £40 (Forty pounds !) a year to use and a mac ready version will be available at the end of the year.


My good friend Robert Holland from IDX was showing off the new Dejero software that can produce live HD/SD pictures out of an iPad, iPhone or android in seconds, you also have the ability to record and send the pictures at a later stage. This was the product of the show, having the ability to go live on air from an iPad was extremely innovative and very future proof.



Cirrolite were demonstrating the new dedolight DLED 4.0 with focusing ability and the new Kino Flo celeb 200 a soft box LED lighting kit.





Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
