Are you ready for HD change?

26 January 2006

Metro Broadcast and Sony Broadcast & Professional are staging a 90 minute session at Sony Pictures Europe, 25 Golden Square, London next Tuesday 31 January 2006 at 10:00, 12:00, 14:00 and 16:00.

High Definition television production is finally becoming mainstream this year. Companies like Sky, the BBC, Premiere in Germany and TF1 in France have all announced they will be starting HDTV services in 2006 to coincide with the World Cup soccer.

High definition television offers viewers five times better picture quality including 5.1 surround sound. Producers now have the choice to shoot programmes at all budget levels from high end SR to low end HDV. A more lucrative global market is opening up opportunities for greater sales and big digital cinema screen projection.

HD production consultant Janet West from the Skills Zone will guide delegates through the maze of formats, standards, issues and budgets.
