and replaced with:
2. NAME
The name of the association is the Guild of Television Camera Professionals (and in this document is called ‘the GTC’). 

To be effective from the date of a successful vote at an EGM.


WORKSHOP

The heart of the matter: sensor technology. How it came to where it is now and what the future holds.
Presented by Neil Thompson

NOW

  • The balancing act between resolution, noise, dynamic range, DoF and readout speed.
  • How it affects your choice of camera, and why we can’t have it all, right now.
  • New techniques such as back illumination, dual ISO and noise cancelling.

THE FUTURE
Neil will be using a pre-production crystal ball, running v1.00, software, to speculate idly about what comes next:

  • VR
  • AR
  • Light field sensors
  • Curved sensors
  • Variable ND pixels
  • Non-linear sensors

These will be very informal and light-hearted sessions, with plenty of time for questions.
