July 4 meeting - HD on a budget

We're delighted to say that for the second time in our short existence we're teaming up with The Royal Television Society's Bristol Centre to present another evening of High Definition. This time we'll be taking a look at Panasonic's HVX200 DVCPRO HD P2 camera courtesy of a visit from Robert Holland of Panasonic. We'll be demonstrating both the quality of the pictures and the ease at which they can be imported and used within Final Cut Pro.

Of course quality is purely subjective so we leave you to be the judges. And why are those P2 cards so expensive? A question for Robert Holland to answer. (And we hope you can think of a few more!)

But, we'll also be looking at Sony's HDV camera's and maybe making a few comparisons. And talking about the HDV workflow. If anybody doesn't know what a long GoP MPEG2 video stream is, now is the time to find out. (Its how HDV is recorded, for those of you that don't already know, by the way!)

Location details can be found on the RTS website:

Entrance is via the "back gate" of the BBC and kick-off (topical reference, of course) is at 7.00 O'clock, Tuesday next (July 4th).

Please let either Phil or Richard know if you intend to turn up so we know how many KitKats to buy!
