Plenty of equipment to see in the exhibition, but I did notice a number of the larger company stands weren’t quite of the size as previous years.
It was interesting to note the increased number of small UAVs on display at the show, all various forms of remotely controlled helicopter used for mounting camera and sound equipment.
At the end of the afternoon I caught Orange Coconut‘s Gary Hewson giving a presentation on understanding codec compatibility: making the right choice for editing and delivery.
After the exhibition I went to the BECTU BVE 2013 social, jointly organised by the union’s Young Members Forum and London Production Division, during which plenty of ale and other beverages where consumed in a networking environment (full disclosure: I was involved in organising the social!).
