Hillsong Church Handles Congregation Growth with Blackmagic Design Founded thirty years ago in Sydney, Australia by Pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston, Hillsong Church has grown rapidly over the years. The church is now comprised of more than a dozen locations in eleven countries across the globe. In Australia alone, more than 30,000 people attend services weekly. The days of a single preacher speaking from a wooden pulpit with only his voice are gone. 30,000 people each weekend want to feel part of the sermons, services and church family. One of the best ways to build and serve the growing congregations is to establish an amazing broadcast and AV infrastructure in each campus. Hillsong's requirements include HD broadcasts, live video switching, recording to DVDs and conversion of formats to meet its needs. ...Read More »

Well, which of the 10 types of organically grown bread would you like with your smoked, pepper or free range ham? If you are one of the two time travelers in Kanen Flowers's new series "18:20," the search for the normalcy of a simple ham sandwich, one of the running plot points in the series, is just one of the many reminders that everything changes when time traveling. ...Read More »

Content Insider #334 - Fast, Furious, 4K By Miles Weston You can't help but love 4K video content it is beautiful after all but I like it for another reason...a business reason. Shooting 4K content takes talent. Handling the delicate post production work takes as much if not more talent. All of it - from beginning to end - takes storage, lots and lots of storage. The people who do all of this work on your entertainment are perfectionists and moved almost to paranoia to save every pixel, every byte. Nothing is discarded because there may come a time when they need that scene, that frame. And 4K requires four times the amount of storage...love it!!! ...Read More »
Pfister, Depp Reunite For Sci-fi 'Transcendence' By DMO Affiliate For more than a decade, cinematographer Wally Pfister brought director Christopher Nolan's cinematic visions to life. Now, he's the one calling the shots.

In the film releasing Friday, the mind of Depp's terminally ill scientist, Will Caster, is uploaded into a computer after his death, spawning an eerily unruly machine. At the heart of the story is the disrupted relationship of Will and his wife, Evelyn, played by Rebecca Hall. ...Read More »
