John Bengston is Developer for VIS Visual Information Systems and has worked for numerous news organisations including ITN and Sky. John has developed a newsroom automation system called JustMacros to make scripting and graphics accessible, flexible and faster. He says: "In my opinion, live production is stuck in the later part of the 20th century, it’s time it improved to take account of the last 20 years."
John will talk about creative control of technology and demonstrate how “production / creative types” can develop their own interfaces, using the tools they know and avoid using technical and IT teams completely. He will demonstrate how it is possible to do things with less kit for less money without losing output performance. Alongside lively discussion there will be the chance of some hands-on "play time"
More details and images will be posted nearer the event... but in the meantime reserve this date in your diary!
PS: Vizrt UK is looking for a System Specialist to join our team based in Ealing Studios so if you know of someone who would be up for a challenging but never boring job please bring them along to the meetup or tell them to contact Maja [masked].
