London Welcomes BVE...

News Image
BVE 2014, the essential event for content creation professionals, is open for visitor registration at The event, covering all aspects of the broadcast and production industry from conception to consumption, offers an unrivalled programme of free seminars as well as product showcases and networking opportunities. BVE 2014 takes place from 25-27 February 2014 at ExCeL London.

"This year's event is truly a must-attend for anyone with an interest in creating and delivering compelling content on any medium," says James Rowley-Ashwood, Event Director.
"We have eight free seminar theatres that will feature over 200 industry experts on a wide variety of topics, from cinematography and lighting to connected TV and 4K to the Cloud. Our 300+ exhibitors will be bringing their latest technology for visitors to see, hear and touch, and the all-important networking opportunities will also be top of the agenda, with the Skills Zone offering invaluable careers advice and various events around BVE 2014 led by our partners."
BVE's free seminar program once again promises to provide an exciting line-up of speakers, covering a wide range of innovative and hot-topic themes. Distributed across eight seminar theatres and hosted by more than 200 leading experts and practitioners, the programme will deliver high quality, research-led content for professionals across the film and TV industry.

The seminars will be presented in the following theatres:
• 4K Theatre
• Broadcast IT Theatre
• Connected Theatre
• Producers' Theatre
• Production Theatre
• Post Production Theatre
• Cinematography & Lighting Theatre
• Skills Zone.

4K discussions continue to dominate the broadcast sector, and the 4K Theatre is set to advance the debate with panel discussions about the opportunities and challenges presented by 4K, from pre-production to post. Speakers include Robin Broomfield, BSkyB; George Panayiotou, Films@59; Hector Macleod, Glassworks; Larry Jordan, internationally renowned consultant; and Hungry Eye magazine. BVE also boasts a 4K Cinema, which will be the first place in the UK (and maybe the world?) to show free 4K content each day during the show. The 4K Cinema will also be used to stream keynote presentations into other theatres on the show floor, including an exciting opportunity to hear Asif Kapadia, the multi-award winning director of Senna, discussing how to bring drama to documentary filmmaking.
Feedback from last year's show revealed that almost a fifth of the 15,000 visitors expressed a desire to understand the 'connected world' and as a result, BVE's Connected Theatre and dedicated exhibition space will be bolstered. Headlining the conference will be Edward Humphrey, the British Film Institute's Director of Digital, who will share insight on the recently launched BFI Player, the new VoD platform that allows the UK to access the BFI's archive of British film. The Connected Theatre will also play host to a number of industry speakers who will share and assess consumer trends as well as examining models for successful delivery and monetisation of content.
The Broadcast IT Theatre features in-depth examinations of the changing broadcast environment, from evolving workflows to new technologies and platforms. There are also real-world case studies looking at NRK's use of the cloud for collaboration and exchange, and Sky Deutschland's operational efficiencies in live sports production. Other confirmed speakers include John Maxwell-Hobbs, BBC Scotland; Clayton Dutton, Discovery Communications Europe; Ben Roeder, Sohonet; and Kevin Burrows, Channel 4.
We've run out of room here, but those interested in what the leading broadcasters are looking for should attend the daily 'Inside the Minds of the Commissioners' sessions in the Producers' Theatre, while leading production and post-production companies including Hat Trick, Twofour, LipSync Post and dock10 will be sharing their expertise in the Production, Post-Production and Producers Theatres.
Importantly, BVE offers visitors an invaluable opportunity to handle, test and compare products before making a buying decision. The comprehensive broadcast exhibition, featuring over 340 companies, has become something of a launch pad for brand new technologies and products, and is often the first opportunity to see products introduced at IBC. Exhibitors include Avid, NewTek, Calrec Audio, Cirro Lite, Coptercraft, Carl Zeiss, Evertz, Canon, Blackmagic and Panasonic. The dedicated Production Services exhibition area also offers a vast array of knowledge, advice and services for production professionals, with exhibitors here including Rigging Services, Blue Skies Partnership, Ravensbourne, AKM Music and AON Ltd.
