2018 has been an excellent year for testing out lots of different technologies for our clients to use. In February we filmed and edited one of our clients presenting in front of a green screen, in order to remove the background and give the illusion that he was floating inside the holographic display, the hologram worked by utilising light diffraction to create a virtual 3D image of an object to bring it to life in the 270°, 3 sided viewing hologram display. This turned more than a few heads. On more than a few occasions this year, we’ve brought along iPad robots along to conferences.
We’ve recently finished the creation of a gorgeous community health centres website, Nuffield Health Practice. We agreed on creating a fresh, modern website that was HTML5 & W3C compliant as well as being mobile friendly. The website was built using Joomla CMS / PHP which was decided after agreeing to the finalised template design and website functionality.
We’ve just invested in a brand new lightweight SWIT Flexi Panel, they will be very useful on shoots where we don’t have any transport taking our kit to the venue. The Flexi Panel rolls up and fits inside a small tube making it extremely portable, if we were to take our Dedo Lights instead, they require a large case along with lighting stands.
As you well may know, we’ve got an extremely busy upcoming November here at Cypher Media; with four simultaneous jobs occurring in Nice and London, with two jobs one-after-the-other in Prague. We’ll have Cypher crew dotted around each event; Jake will be in London, Chris will be in Nice and Adrian will be in Prague.
Next month Stuart will be attending an IOSH course; IOSH stands for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. It is a three-day course that will cover working safely and managing safely. Working safely is aimed at all employees; this will cover the essentials of health and safety in the workplace. Managing safely, which is aimed at managers, supervisors and team leaders, will give them the skills and knowledge to manage health and safety within teams.
Since July of 2017 we’ve been working very hard on a programme that has been tried and tested throughout the duration of this, and last year. Cypher Media’s POD, or Programmable Onsite Display, is a real-time timetable system used for creating and managing event schedules.
