Did you spot us at the Media Production Show?

Our team are back in the office after a whirlwind week at the second Media Production Show. Thanks to everyone who came to our stand, tried out our kit, and helped us eat our way through 50kg of pick ‘n’ mix over the course of three days.

The big change this year is that we’ve teamed up with root6 to become the UK’s biggest and best provider of editing, grading and audio solutions. The two of us were manning one stand this year, and had many of our favourite solutions on show, including the Cintel Film Scanner, DaVinci Resolve with advanced and mini panels, the Avid Pro Tools S3 with iPad Dock, Focusrite’s Red4Pre and workstations with Avid Media Composer.

As well as showcasing the Cintel Film Scanner and Resolve, we played host to storage solutions from leaders Quantum, showcasing their StorNext shared storage solution, and LaCie. We were showing ROOT6 Technology’s ContentAgent, which provides a central hub from which to manage and automate all aspects of your file-based workflow.

Highlights of the week include a string of great talks about the future of VR and workshops on cinematography, editing and grading, but our highlight of the week was probably getting to meet living YouTube legend Joe Sugg. We thought it went well but he hasn’t followed us back, so our ascent to social media stardom still seems unlikely.

Over the course of the week, we’ve been asking you to tweet us your best Jigsaw24 stand selfie in order to be in with the chance of winning a Sonos Play:1. We can now officially reveal that the winner is Twitter user @alexchopper1982, who won us over by promising to use his prize to play Jigsaw24 favourite Cotton Eye Joe at every opportunity.

The year in production: Our highlights from 2016’s trade shows

The year in production: Our highlights from 2016’s trade shows

As well as hitting old favourites like NAB and IBC, 2016 marks the year we made our Media Production Show debut. I asked the production team to whittle down their trade show experience to just the most memorable, non-casino-related moments. Here are the results. 

NAB 2016

We’ve been big Atomos supporters from day one, and getting to see the Atomos Shogun was definitely one of the highlights of NAB. We were happy enough to hear that eight of the Atomos lineup were getting a free software update to support HDR, but the Shogun Inferno’s combination of the most advanced monitor technologies (1500nit/10bit/HDR) with 4Kp60 over Quad-SDI, and playback and editing functionality for on-set collaboration made it a real standout for us.

IBC 2016

IP workflow solutions got their first major airing at NAB and have continued gaining traction ever since, with NewTek continuing to expand their NDI lineup, Sony partnering with manufacturers and standards bodies to develop their own solutions portfolio, and production kit manufacturers releasing IP-ready kit.

We knew IP was going to be a big deal at IBC, but we had no idea just how IP-based the show was. As we’re primarily an IT reseller, this was right up our street. Some of our team attended the IP Interoperability talk with the likes of AIMS/Grass Valley and SMPTE, and the theme was very much how the industry is working together to advance IP workflows, although the standards are still yet to be ratified.
