Whilst it is great to see technology continuing to develop and to have the opportunity of appreciating the quality of 4K productions, we think for the majority of corporate needs it’s really not necessary and probably won’t become a status quo requirement for a long time. Here are just a few of our thoughts and comments on the uptake of 4K.

We’ve just made our annual pilgrimage across London to visit the 2014 Broadcast and Video Exhibition (BVE) at the ExCel centre, Canary Wharf in the heart of London’s docklands.
I should explain for those that don’t already know that BVE is the TV and video industry’s look at what’s new and where future technology is pointing us when it comes to all things video.
