SYPHAnews - 28 September 2004

Welcome to SYPHAnews - a free newsletter designed to keep you up-to-date with nonlinear audio and video, and digital video camera news, as well as developments at

We will deliver this service to you every month - unless there is some major news we think you should know about sooner. To unsubscribe, please follow the instructions below.

STOP PRESS!! For those who missed the announcement, the brand new HD Kit Guide is now available. It covers professional production and post production equipment, from HDV through to uncompressed HD, plus the growing digital intermediate market. The new edition of the DAW Buyers Guide is also now available.

The launch of these guides, our recent redesign and IBC 2004 all contributed to a further increase in traffic - we have received over 20,000 visitors in September. If you find our resources useful, please recommend us to your colleagues.

The majority of the news in this bumper edition newsletter comes from IBC. With attendance up to 40,776 as the show closed - 12% higher than last year - and with high definition firmly on the agenda for Europe, this was a very positive event.

Finally we would like to welcome Sony as a gold sponsor of the Pro Camera Guide and the NLE Buyers Guide.
