BBC: (4) Film Production Technology

The above photographs provide some idea of the range of technology employed by television production teams these days.

The left-hand picture shows the producer previewing the film currently being recorded by the cameraman in the right-hand picture �__ he was filming some of the sticklebacks and water scorpions at the time, which can just be seen on the mini-TV screen. The television pictures are being sent wirelessly from the camera to the preview machine, in much the same way as we are able to use video calls on mobile phones.
