A GTC statement said: "Numbers will be limited but it is hoped to provide the Guild's first webcast from a workshop for the benefit of members at large - so, look out nearer the time for notification on the GTC Forum and this website."
This workshop is only open to GTC members with a practical knowledge of outside broadcast and studio work and attendees will be selected by ACS themselves.
To apply for a place on this specialist workshop (early application is highly recommended) members should contact Antonia Wood at ACS on:, giving details of experience plus GTC membership number.
The day will include an introduction to ACS and its variety of specialist camera systems followed by an overview of the SMARThead - ACS's remote head (as used on the Papal Visit, Wimbledon and The Proms).
