4K in the spotlight at BVE 2013
In partnership with AJA, Canon and RedShark, BVE is bringing a dedicated 4K theatre to this year’s London expo. In addition to featuring the latest projection equipment and content being delivered in 4K, the theatre will also host debates on what 4K means for the wider industry.
AJA’s Andy Bellamy will present sessions on practical 4K and UltraHD workflows from acquisition to post. AJA Video Systems has been at the forefront of 4K workflows from the company’s earliest engagements in DCI and 4K theatrical presentation. With the advent of 4K acquisition for a larger user base with cameras like the Canon C500 and Sony F55, AJA’s Ki Pro Quad digital recorder not only supports RAW workflow capabilities across Thunderbolt but also provides real-time debayering to storage efficient Apple ProRes files for immediate editing use following capture. In addition, the Ki Pro Quad supports 444 baseband 4K, UltraHD and HD-SDI workflows.
Canon has invited industry experts Geoff Boyle and Philip Bloom to discuss, demonstrate and debate 4K workflows using Canon C500 and EOS 1DC cameras. Geoff Boyle will present sessions on why cinematographers should care about 4K and what producers will get from the format, while Philip charts his DSLR journey, explaining why he left them behind and why he has now returned to the fold.
Moving image industry news website RedShark will present sessions on 4K cinematography; 4K workflows including post-production, editing and VFX; and what 4K means for the broadcast industry.
Sony, Dynamic Drive Poool, For-A, GB Labs and JVC will also be showcasing their latest products and technologies for capturing and editing 4K content.
