LDI Lighting Show

Looking for location lighting gear at LDI is a bit like being a vegan at a steak house. There’s a big menu but not much  you can order. With the show’s primary focus on theater and live entertainment, LDI attracted some manufacturers of TV studio lighting gear but many location oriented companies were absent. Even industry leaders Mole and Arri… read more…

Oli at IBC 2011

This year was IBC’s highest level of attendance. To prepare for IBC, I like to plan in advance: circling “must see” company names on the floor plan. I had trouble with Sony not mentioning specifically where they were in Hall 12 until I arrived and found that Sony occupied the entire Hall. Keynotes, conferences and seminars touched on broadcasting, web casting, social… read more…
