"The Scenius do a lot of gobo work and are my main profile light overhead and from the rear. They have been very reliable, I don't think one has gone wrong. There is also the advantage of the high-CRI light source and its whiteness, it's a revolution for TV."

LD Fredrik Jönsson discusses lighting tools (Eurovision)

Phil WardThis month: The Cows Come Home

"Karl Marx would smirk, but companies like Music Group, the International Audio Group and Gold Peak own their means of production in China. They don't lease them, and that's the argument for complete vertical control over IP, QC and lots of other initials."

ReadCrew Cuts

Crew CutsThis month: Andy 'Fish' Fisher

"Leaving school I worked for a private investigator and security specialist firm. This wasn't for me, as I wanted to see more of the world and then some."

Recollected WorksThis month: In at the Deep End

"They explained that David would sit at a table and talk to eight miners, but they'll only talk freely if they don't think the management can overhear them, so . . . a 12-piece band would play and there would be general dancing . . ."

ReadRigging Call

Rigging CallThis month: Rescue

"Unfortunately, the near hysterical reaction to 'harness trauma' - later more correctly re-titled 'suspension intolerance' - in sectors of industry using personal fall protection systems led many to believe that that was all a rescue plan was about."

ReadVideo Matters

Richard CadenaThis month: Protect Your Content From Ransomware

"It pays to back up your data. There are many good ways to do this, but the key to avoiding having to pay ransom is 'versioning'. Any backup solution you use should allow you to go back in time and select a version from your backups that is free of malware."


QandAThis month: Elliot Herman talks to Peter Matthes, managing director of Amptown System Company . . .

"I was at so many right places at the right times, but the key has always been about coming up with the best solutions and best products, from support to innovative, tough but lightweight cases. There are limits to a company, but those limits are simply the people within it . . ."
