Content Insider #511 - Content Industry Mashup
VR is so real it led off the four-day HPA conference down in Palm Springs but it was only the tip of the iceberg of what technicall creative pros are doing way above and beyond (better) than what your kids post every day on YouTube. This is the event where the pros roll up their shirt/blouse sleeves to talk about how they're going to ensure quality content is produced and distributed. Yes the studio, production company and network pros also spent a lot of time figuring out the new OTT (Over The Top) streaming of content everywhere, anywhere, anytime to any device. Yes we do live in interesting times. Read More

DP Benjamin Gaskell Shoots the Latest Installment of the Witness Project Documentary Series with a Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K
In late 2015, Smock Media, a Venice Beach-based film and VR production company, and the Victims of Communism (VOC), a Washington, D.C.-based human rights organization, came together and started The Witness Project. Beginning with a two-episode pilot that told the tales of life in communist regimes, the Witness Project debuted at a screening at the Library of Congress and began the greater journey into the victims' stories and inherent strength. Building on that success, Smock Media and VOC decided to expand the series into an eight-episode arch for 2016, with even more slated for later years. DP Benjamin Gaskell was brought on to tackle the first episode of the second installment, which would set the tone for the rest of the documentary series. The episode focused on Anastasia Lin, Miss World Canada 2015 and 2016, and her story. Read More

Lander University Upgrades Digital Media Studio with Blackmagic Design
Lander University may be a small university in Greenwood, SC, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in passion. Like every other university in the country, Lander's faculty and staff want to equip students to be outstanding in their fields. Thanks in part to Assistant Professor of digital media Cory Carpenter, students in the Mass Communications and Media Studies program are doing just that. In his two year tenure working at Lander, Cory pushed for an upgrade for the digital media studio's outdated equipment, and the program's 125 students now learn about television production using three Blackmagic Studio Cameras HD, an ATEM 1 M/E Production Studio 4K switcher, a Smart Videohub 16x16 router, one HyperDeck Studio Pro and a SmartScope Duo 4K.

Content Insider #508 - Keeping Viewers
OTT (over the top) viewing is great...any time, any place, any device. Our kids love it. Heck you probably love it. True the new content delivery folks like it for the most part but their challenge is keeping you "tuning in" to their service. The problem is called churn - kids (and adults) moving from one source to another to another. Every time you leave it costs a lot of money to get a new viewer. The key to keeping you using them is simple...keep delivering the content they want. For some services it's super easy. For others not so much. The answer is understanding what each individual wants to view, when and where. Better use of your information and making intelligent recommendations spells profits for the service provider, advertisers and marketers and...a satisfied viewer. Read More

Manhattan College Upgrades to 4K Television Studio with Blackmagic Design
Manhattan College Upgrades to 4K Television Studio with Blackmagic Design
Manhattan College is a private liberal arts college located in Riverdale, NY, a neighborhood in the northwest portion of the Bronx. In 2008, the college formed a new communication department, and as part of that initiative they began building a new, professional television studio for students in the broadcasting/telecommunications program. It took several years, but after putting in several proposals the department received the funds necessary to upgrade the studio to HD. While researching new equipment, Michael realized that Blackmagic Design's line of studio products would allow them to leapfrog over HD and upgrade the studio to 4K for roughly the same price.
