HEVC - an apology
Posted: Wednesday, May 14, 2014
I have a confession to make. I was over enthusiastic in my Interlace + HEVC blog post a little while ago. I confidently stated: “One of the great advances in the HEVC specification is that it does not support interlace”. This is blatantly untrue. I used a slightly more accurate statement in an e...

So… Who won the #AmberFinAcademy MacBook Pro?
Posted: Monday, April 28, 2014
For the NAB show 2014 we offered a MacbookPro as a prize for our AmberFin Academy presentations. We had a really good response and some fantastic conversations with many customers and new contacts who didn’t realise that there were video artefacts that could be removed by great transcoding. T...

Posted: Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Whatever you do, don’t become an accidental software programmer!
Posted: Tuesday, November 26, 2013
Whoever said that running a media facility was easy needs carting off to the madhouse! Remaining price and quality competitive in today’s marketplace requires the physical agility of Usain Bolt, the insight of Gary Kasparov and the staying power of Red Rum all rolled into one: Those media facili...

Has technology killed the broadcast super-star?
Posted: Tuesday, September 03, 2013
It was very sad to hear over the weekend that David Frost had died. He came from a generation where it was possible to be a true global broadcasting super-star. Why don't  you step back and think about what he achieved during his life. Now try to imagine some young 20 year old today trying to ac...
