Media Parents 2012 Technical Overview : Jan 31st

January 16, 2013 @ 2:08 pm Posted in News Comments

Pro Motion and Media Parents have joined forces to offer a refresher course for industry professionals returning to work after maternity or paternity leave, or who just want to catch up on developments over 2012.

Caroline Bingham, Business Development Executive at Pro Motion Hire, pictured on right, will be at the event. See also

The session can be attended with or without baby, (age restrictions apply), offering an overview of technical changes in the industry during the past year. The session will include up to date information on accepted broadcaster formats, new advances in technology and much more!

There will be networking opportunities, as well as a chance to get hands on with the industry’s current ‘most popular’ line up of cameras, and a host of personnel to field any questions.

You're welcome to bring children to this event if they can't walk yet! Pictured here, Pro Motion Hire's Caroline Bingham with her twins.

The camera line up includes: Canon XF 305, C300, 5D mkii/i and from Sony: PMW-200, PMW-500, PDW-F800 and NEX-FS700 (with slo mo capabilities). We feel this line up will give a great overview of the cameras currently being used on a range of different productions.

We will also discuss workflows for these formats which will include a demonstration on how to ingest media onto a laptop and subsequent back up onto a hard drive.

This event will be hosted in a very relaxed and informal environment, lasting approximately 2 hours. Places are limited, so if you are interested in attending this inaugural session on the 31st January, please book with Media Parents:
