The Production Show – one of the biggest UK events for broadcast, film, post-production, and visual effects – is to be held in Olympia’s National Hall on May 21 to 23, 2002. The show includes exhibition, conference, and seminar sessions designed to tackle explore the technological developments of the broadcast industry. The organizers say the show will include a number of UK-firsts. Among the launches, Vizrt is showing Viz-fx, which provides real-time graphics integration with actions on visual-effects shots, while Front Niche will be launching the world’s first pixel-to-pixel TFT LCD from Vultrix. The LCD is 15.3-inches, with a 16:9 aspect ratio, and can be desk or rack mounted. Flat Displays, along with Alias Technology, is launching the FD42 plasma display, which sports a 1,024-x-1,024 resolution. Apple will be supporting the UK Apple Solution Experts Village, with topics including real-time standard and high-definition editing, DVD and portable editing, professional audio, and streaming. Digit magazine will be there, supporting a range of free workshops covering Final Cut Pro, the new version of DVD Studio Pro and the brand new Cinema Tools for Final Cut Pro, as well as other Mac-based solutions within the Corps Business Workshop. Be sure to drop by the Digit stand in the workshop area. Sponsors include companies such as M2 Television, which is supporting The Commissioners’ conference stream. DigiDesign and Tyrell will be sponsoring The Audio Zone, while Business Link for London is supporting the From Production to Post conference stream. This year, the show is also organizing free buses from the heart of London’s Soho to the show. The free service will run from outside Tiger Tiger, Haymarket, SW1 to the show from 9:30 at 20-minute intervals.
