    Andy Serkis is cinema royalty. This is his fascinating glimpse into the future of filmmaking

    Performance capture is one of the fastest growing areas of film production, and is increasingly blurring the boundaries between what has traditionally been called CGI or SFX and real world, nuanced acting. We interviewed actor, director and producer Andy Serkis at IBC to gain his insights into this most fascinating area of film production and to find out where it's all heading.

      Forget metadata, AI will eventually be the perfect way to search footage

      Metadata was to be one of the big time savers of video and film production. But how effectively it works depends on how good the data that went into it was in the first place. Enter machine learning and AI, which could eventually provide the ultimate in fast and fluid searches for video.

          How quickly is 4K being adopted in the home? This seminar told us everything

          Sony has been using the phrase “beyond definition” in promotional literature for a while, and it’s a very apposite slogan. We hardly need to say that more pixels aren’t really a priority anymore, at least for conventional film and TV (VR differs.) But the adoption rate for UHD makes for interesting reading.
