With the Global Tax Academy in Rome coming to an end on Saturday, more than half of the Cypher crew are flying straight to Madrid for the third and final International Tax Academy of the year. The conference will run from 18th – 25th November, that makes 12 days on the road for the majority of the crew!
We’re currently preparing to travel to Amsterdam and gather footage to be used in a promotional set of clips for the Global Tax Symposium at the Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria in November.We’ll be filming at the Hilton Amsterdam Airport, Schiphol. The shooting will span across two days and the videos are going to be used on the registration website as promotional content. This means that before delegates register for the symposium they can watch clips of the sessions to decide which sessions they would like to attend.
High Dynamic Range content gives us the ability to show almost as much detail as the naked eye sees in real life. We use 4k cameras and lenses to capture as many small details as possible for the highest quality end production. To produce a video in HDR, we use something called S-Log. S-Log allows us to balance the lighting in shots when conditions are poor allowing us to have more detail in the darker parts of the screen, such as shadows. It was originally only built into extremely high-end cameras but in the recent years it has been implemented on less expensive corporate cameras.
We’ve recently invested in some brand new polling software for our reply plus handsets. This new software allows us to instantly create polls for our delegates to vote in. Some other features also include the ability to do Q&A’s via the handsets, question slides and even question related games where teams can be set.
