HDR, TVC and R&D ~ 15th Jan.

Yet another TLA (Three Letter Acronym) for us all to learn: HDR
(High Dynamic Range)

Back in summer 2016 we visited BBC Research and Development in London to learn about developments in 4K cameras.  Since then R&D have been busy working on further picture improvements, in particular HDR, and they have invited us back to get the word out to the practitioners within our industry. 

The day starts at Centre House and then moves across the road to the BBC Studioworks newly refurbished studios, TC1,2 & 3, at Television Centre, Wood Lane, London W12 7RJ (above). 

The full schedule is: 

  • 15:00 High Dynamic Range (HDR) video introduction & discussion at BBC R&D
  • 16:30 To TVC Studio TC1 for a demo of HDR camera improvements
  • 17:00 BBC Studioworks TVC Red Assembly for tour(s)
  • 18:30 tea/coffee in Red Assembly
  • 19:00 44th STLD AGM in basement Green Room
  • 20:00-20:30 back up to Red Assembly for a fork buffet 

We may fit in a Q&A session just before the AGM in the evening if there are any outstanding questions arising from the R&D visit and TVC tours. 

All paid-up STLD members are entitled to attend the AGM but we do need to get an idea of numbers for catering if you are staying to socialise.  Also, you'll only get into any BBC premises if your name is on the security list - this particularly applies to Television Centre which are working TV studios, currently within a large Stanhope building site.

If you'd like to be there, and to be fed, then please RSVP with your contact phone number and any special dietary requirements before 5th January

We've arranged the day such that you can "dip into" any bit you like, arriving at 3PM, 5PM or 7PM but please let us know if you are NOT coming to the afternoon R&D session, as space at Centre House may well be limited and could end up as another TLA:
