All of our kit has been collected from the Cypher Media office for next week’s International Tax Academy being held at The Hilton, Prague. We have a fairly large crew of 26 covering the 6 days we’re working on site.
In preparation for our upcoming Management Conference being hosted in Charlotte, USA, we’ve been busy in the Cypher office getting all of our kit out to create a detailed carnet list containing all of our sound and video equipment, and other miscellaneous items such as green screens and batteries.
We felt it’s about time we upgraded our banner printer. Sadly, Canon are discontinuing the inks for our current printer, the Canon ImagePROGRAF iPF6400, which has worked fantastically for the past 10 years, however, this gave us an excuse to purchase one of its successors, the Canon ImagePROGRAF iPF8400SE. This new banner printer is much larger, coming in at 189.3 (W) x 97.1 (D) x 114.4 (H) cm.
We're updating our first aid training here at Cypher Media. A total of seven crew will be attending the session; it will be giving us the basics of insight into Health and Safety regulations, managing an incident, resuscitation, blood loss, shock, choking and much more.
We all know that you shouldn’t wear green if you’re shooting a green screen shot, but what else should you avoid wearing?
Stripes and intricate patterns are almost always a big no-no when it comes to shooting video. This is because they create an optical effect called a ‘Moiré Pattern’ which can be very distracting on a video as it will seem like the pattern is flaring or strobing.
