Special Areas on Digital Media Networking and Camera Technology in Hall 11.0. With the new Future Walk, we offer you an interactive area with an experiential character, which presents innovations around networked systems for event technology and broadcast applications.
The Future Walk focuses on network-based processes that will permanently change the industry in the coming years: from remote production to device-independent workflows and on-demand infrastructures.
The Kamera Hub, which is also new, forms a central contact point for television cameramen, presents innovations in moving image production in specialised exhibitions and invites you to talks and workshops.
The Future Walks is being created under the professional direction of MakePro X, one of the leading suppliers of high-performance control consoles for media technology in the network age. Other partners and exhibitors in the area include key players and specialised suppliers such as ARRI, Broadcast Partners, Nebucast, Netorium, On Hertz, Panasonic, Teltec, Troikatronix, Universe and Zoom.
On more than 250 square metres, the area in Hall 11.0 offers five different stations where visitors can experience the systems distributed in the network in action. In addition, cross-system and cooperative networking will be demonstrated at all stations: The participating companies will make their components available directly via the network and provide in-depth insights into the functions, workflows and advantages of their solutions.
The following stations are planned for the Future Walk:
Network Distributed Media Processing: This station is dedicated to the combination of audio, video and human control interfaces with stream manipulation services in the network. It shows how monolithic solutions can be broken down into individual components and reassembled in the network to provide optimal control.
Device Independent Workflow: Less complexity and more user-friendliness: With the Multi Target Control Layer, users experience maximum ease of use. The station shows how different solutions can be integrated into a single, device-independent user interface and thus be controlled and monitored with reduced effort.
Hybrid Events and Remote Production: Using IP-based networks instead of wired connections, the components of a system can be controlled regardless of location. The station shows innovative approaches to increase the interaction of participants, reduce transport and travel costs and optimise job satisfaction.
On-Demand Infrastructure & Service: More and more on-demand services are conquering the market and offer an alternative to traditional hardware purchases. Investment in physical equipment is thus giving way to a licensing model. At this station, you will learn how to increase your cost transparency and test new, professional solutions without a long-term commitment.
Interactive Stage and Mixed Reality Studio: The use of VR technologies blurs real and virtual worlds and opens up stunning new fields of application in film and events. The station presents groundbreaking control systems that bring the stage to life and enable realistic 3D simulations in the style of the holodeck known from Star Trek.
The solutions presented at the various stations culminate in the "Future Walk Livestream", which is accessible on the web during the event. Every day, interesting content such as demos, interviews, performances and technological deep-dives can be experienced here. In addition, you can be present during the production of the stream, look over the team's shoulder and gather inspiration for innovative video applications.
Future Walk Exhibitors
The centrepiece of the new area is the "Take a Look into the Future" exhibition, where TV professionals can get an overview of new camera models for use in TV productions as well as specialised lighting solutions. Also part of the Camera Hub is the Speakers Area. Here, expert talks on industry-relevant topics will be held daily. The programme includes lectures on innovative technologies in the TV sector, the job profile of TV cameramen as well as occupational health and safety. There will also be workshops on make-up, camera and lighting for HD productions. Sustainable solutions in TV operations will also be highlighted.
