The BKSTS Broadcast Roadshow is scheduled to visit seven cities around the UK and Ireland during the first week of November 2007. It will showcase new technologies from companies like Axon, Christie, Pharos, Ross Video and Vizrt, alongside presentations on a wide variety of technical issues of interest to broadcasters and those that support them.
A website (www.ukroadshow.tv) is now operational, and delegate registration is off to a flying start. Although entry to the Roadshow is entirely free, delegates must register for security reasons.
In addition to the presence of exhibiting manufacturers, the Roadshow will also have the involvement of Ravensbourne College, who will be advising on courses and career opportunities in the Industry. The BKSTS is also grateful to the Institute of Broadcast Sound, who are also supporting the Roadshow.
Commenting on the Broadcast Roadshow, BKSTS President, Roland Brown, said: "As part of the process of re-vitalising the Society, we want to offer regional members more activity that does not involve a trip to London - this is just an excellent first step in that process."
The Roadshow will visit Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow, London and Manchester.
