Production Technology Survey, 2015 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Televisual’s annual Production Technology Survey reveals the production and post production kit the industry is using and what producers think of it. Tim Dams reports

One of the key challenges for programme makers today is keeping on top of the latest advances in production technology.
Every year, a swathe of new cameras, editing kit and supporting technology are launched into the market, promising to enhance creative possibilities, bring down costs or boost productivity.

The Production Technology Survey attempts to cut through this hype, asking Televisual readers to tell us what they are using to make their shows –and which kit they rate.

The Survey seeks to establish which are the most popular technology brands and models in production today, as well as highlighting the key technology trends that are driving the market.

As with previous Production Technology Surveys, we have focused on a number of key areas.

Firstly, we take the temperature of the rapidly evolving camera market, revealing the most popular manufacturers and models. Once again, Canon’s C300 emerges as the most popular model.

Next we focus on post production, specifically editing, grading and the take up of cloud-based remote editing. Avid remains the market leader, with a particular dominance in the TV production market, but it is interesting to see the increasing inroads being made by Adobe in corporate, commercials and digital production.

There’s also a whole page of findings on the take up and future of 4K. Despite all the talk about the format, only 30% said they had shot in 4K in the past year. But its uptake looks assured: 50% say they expect to shoot in 4K in the next 12 months.

Finally, we have a section devoted to the kit and solutions that programme makers would love to see – but that has not been invented yet.  What single piece of kit would make your production workflow easier, we asked. For many, it proved an opportunity to vent their frustrations about the problems faced with data management.
