Procam has confirmed that Ember Films’ Jonathan Jones, cinematographer Balazs Bolygo BSC, HSC and Gun Hill Studios’ Rupert Cobb are all presenting at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho on 1st November for the Media Technology Day.

Procam further confirmed a special panel on Production Sustainability, supported by Splice. Chaired by BAFTA’s Head of Industry Sustainability, members of their sustainability scheme – albert – will discuss the opportunities the film and TV sector has to lessen its environmental impact. Using real-life case studies, the panel will explore what steps everyone can take to support sustainable practice; offering practical tips and advice on how to reduce not just your production, but also your company’s carbon footprint. Production sustainability is both a topical environmental issue and imperative, as well as becoming an increasingly hot topic at a business and commissioning level.

Balazs will be joined by Richard Lewis, Chief Engineer and Camera Specialist, Sony Professional Solutions Europe, who will share how forthcoming firmware & hardware updates, including the VENICE Extension System, will further enhance the camera’s already formidable capabilities.

PANASONIC: Working with the EVA1 and VariCAM LT: DoP (musician, record producer, editor and mix engineer) Rupert Cobb explains how the cameras’ faithful and consistent colour reproduction enhanced the development of a new ground-breaking television series.

Nigel Wilkes, Group Manager for Panasonic’s Broadcast & Pro-AV division said, “We’re delighted to have Rupert on board as our first EVA1 ambassador. Rupert and I have known each other since working on Live From Abbey Road, and since catching up at last year’s Media Production Show we’ve been working with Rupert in putting the EVA1 through its paces. We’ve been blown away at the content Rupert has shot with the EVA1, and look forward to seeing the end-results.”
